Moment of Truth
Now, I have to be honest with you. I grew up in a house FULL of chips, cookies, candy and beyond. If you even mentioned the word "snack" in my parents house, then honey buns might start falling from the sky - (yes, it was that bad). The pantry was always stocked with [junk] food.
Peanut butter crackers, affectionately known as Nabs, were always my favorite childhood snack. You know... the crunchy, smooth, salty, sweet deliciousness that comes in packs of six?
Well, there comes a point in life when you must commit to the upgrade. When I began craving this crunchy goodness last week, I knew it was time to revamp my admired snack. See my equation below!
The Switch Up
Whole Grain Cracker + Natural Peanut Butter - foot long ingredient list = PERFECTION!
The Regular Ingredient list
Enriched Flour (Wheat Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Peanuts, Vegetable Oil (contains one or more of the following: Canola Oil, Corn Oil, Palm Oil, Soybean Oil), Dextrose, Sugar, Leavening (Sodium Bicarbonate, Ammonium Bicarbonate, Monocalcium Phosphate), Corn Syrup, Salt, Soy Lecithin (Emulsifier).
The Upgraded Ingredient List
Whole Grain Wheat, Vegetable Oil, Sea Salt, Peanuts, Apple (Optional)
