Slap a "New" Label on Something and I'm Sold
I can't tell you how many times I'm a victim of slick marketing. Really. Put a "new" label on something and I toss it right in the cart. So was the case on Sunday when I went food shopping since our cupboards were bare (or at least devoid of quick make-n-eat food to get through the end of the semester frenzy). And there it was. Not only was it "new" but on sale. So I bought the Quaker Granola Bites. They looked tasty and clever. Well. I can safely say I made a wise choice. They're like little granola treats with a tiny bit of chocolate on them. Enough to get me to lunch, but not too much to ruin my appetite. And only 90 calories per little pouch. Better than granola bars. Which I like in theory, but if they're of the chewy variety, it gets tiresome to chew them.

One of my little boys always brings these in for dessert - looks like I should try them sometime!
