Sargento Light String Cheese

You might think that a name brand string cheese such as this would have a superior taste & texture to a store brand, but in fact you would be wrong! I have sampled many a string cheese over the years, and they're all pretty enjoyable, but this is maybe my least favorite one yet. Granted, they are "light", so you can't expect too much, but there are other light string cheeses (Polly-O, Kraft, America's Choice) that have a way more satisfying peel. The problem with these Sargentos is that you only can peel about 4 chunky strips from this string cheese, which is no fun at all. The flavor is also virtually nonexistent. It's still something to do for those who like hand food and only 50 calories, but I'd spring for any other string cheese option if possible.

Wise White Cheddar Popcorn

Cheese popcorn is not among my favorite snacks -- I'd much rather have cheese, or plain popcorn. However, as far as white cheddar popcorns go, this is a good one. The kernels have a good texture, and if they didn't have cheese powder on them it'd be awesome because they're perfectly popped - no hulls or burnt parts. (OK, there are a few unpopped kernels in there, but such is life). That's not to say that the coating tastes BAD, in fact it probably tastes pretty good, I just don't want to eat a whole bag of it!! Tastes exactly how you'd expect White Cheddar Popcorn in a Bag to taste, so if that's your favorite, you should 100% buy this. It's a good snack to have on hand and it's probably healthier than chips.

Fage Greek Yogurt (Strawberry)

Mm, yogurt. Ha ha, just kidding! Yogurt is OK, but I don't love it like everyone else does. That said, I've certainly tried many brands of yogurt, Greek & not-Greek, and I think Fage is my favorite. It's also usually the same low price as the other ones, so there's no reason not to grab one as a filling, not-too-unhealthy snack. They have 0% and 2% varieties, but the 2% tastes much better, so I'd say it's worth the extra 40 calories or whatever.

I think the strawberry is my favorite flavor, though I also like peach and cherry. (Plain is a little rough). The yogurt is tangy and creamy, and the fruit is sweet and has real fruit bits, but is just enough to leave you wanting a tiny bit more. Overall a snack I never regret getting, but I never really crave it.
