3 new product reviews



I have been  taste testing several new products I have found in the grocery store lately....





First Asana yogurt;
I received a coupon for a free large size container of   this yogurt..   Picked the peach. Overall nice taste , rich ,and creamy. Nice sized chunks of peach in the yogurt. A good product.
However ,  calories per 175g. 160 cal. and  the second ingredient listed on the container .Sugar!
So even tho this pro biotic yogurt 's unique recipe adds calcium, Vit D and some selected milk proteins.....I will pass  on getting another..... based on  the sugar and calories  I will go back to Source yogurt. 35 cal. per serving.

Schneiders has come out with   new  meat products  called Country Naturals..... 
using  what they claim ""only the Good Stuff'''; no  preservatives added, no nitrates, no msg, no artifical flavours .  I have  tried  the bacon,  wieners, salami and  cold cuts....  These products do have a cleaner fresher taste.  However  the size is   3/4 of the regular products...  375g. on the wieners  and bacon.  They are using sea salt but the sodium is still  high  25%  . Saturated and Trans Fat 40% on some  product.

Still I  like  this product overall and would get it again... even at the increase in cost -  just not as often...

Lastly I  had another  free product coupon  for Kellogg's All-Bran  Bars......
 chose the original  flavour. Tasty  and filling bar.......  Liked  it...
After reading the  label   , wheat flour first , 2nd  sugar, then 3rd comes  cereal( wheat bran more sugar and malt) Calories per bar 130. So even tho this is touted as high fibre  I  don't think I will  get this product again...... Products too high in sodium and hidden sugars are   ones I try to pass up.
I do like  getting coupons to try out new products so thanks to companies for that but  I do wonder when companies will wise up to the fact consumers are reading labels and looking for healthier   products.

I should try to remember to blog about new products too. I think the Kellogg Bran Bars has high fructose corn syrup (HFC) as well, which I avoid like the plague.
