You guys ever get those days where all you want to do is EAT SUGAR? Ummmmm… stupid question right? Who doesn’t want to eat sweets 24/7 without putting on that extra weight?
Well a couple days ago after a long day of work, I didn’t want anything to eat but a big piece of chocolate cake, which is weird because I typically want a full savory meal since it’s typically around dinner time.
When I got home, I checked my mail. As I am opening the mailbox I see a white box. My eyes lit up because that typically means it’s a goodie package with something other than a bill! It was from…
A-Fit Bake Shop.
Say wha?!?! Talk about PERFECT TIMING!!!
I took the box out of the mailbox and smelled peanut butter immediately. My eyes lit up even bigger! 0_0 I hurried upstairs and tore the box open.
As I was opening the box, I see two items. The first one I opened were the Purest Peanut Butter and Honey Cookies. I immediately shoved one into my mouth.
MMMmmmmmm!!!! Peanut Butter!!!
What I loved about it was it wasn’t too sweet. It felt light and airy with just the right amount of peanut butter. I can tell it was made from natural peanut butter because it didn’t taste ‘thick.” If you don’t know the difference between all natural peanut butter before vs regular peanut butter, I highly recommend buying both just so you know the difference, because there is a difference.
Regular peanut butter typically has added “oils” or some type of “sweetener” with a few other ingredients. Natural peanut butter has 2 ingredients. “Peanuts” and “Salt.”
Next up were the Protein Peanut Butter Brownies.
Wow is all I can say. It was pure joy in my mouth.
I couldn’t even tell these were “healthy.” It was so good I swear I was at The Cheesecake Factory eating their “Chocolate Tower Truffle Cake,” which by the way has 2,500 calories and 85g of saturated fat per 3/4 lb according to consumerist.com!
What I really loved about this package was Alyssa Monique Lemus, the founder and baker, provided me with a sheet with all the macronutrients and ingredients.
