I like to eat dates with apples. Kind of tastes like a caramel apple!

Oh man! I wish I hadn't seen that! I loved cheetos! "Cheese that goes crunch." And I like Chester Cheetah too. :)

ah yes, it's a mixed blessing! i couldn't believe it the first time i had 'em, and have gone thru half a bag with ease.

they also have a sunflower butter flavor that's quite good.

All I can say is: Stay FAR AWAY from "Vegan Baking Co." goodies!
They are addictive!

I just ordered some from Veganessentials, and I think I should have gotten only one of each! Get them away from me! (Resistance is futile!)

The "Pecan Joy" tastes a lot like I remember "Almond Joy" tasting. Ditto with the "Chocolate Peppermint Creme" vs. Peppermint Patties. The "Peanut Butter Cup" does have a not-authentic crushed-graham-cracker texture, but it pretty reminiscent of Reese's. (This is all based on long-term memory, however, LOl!).

I've tried Tings and like them, but I like to avoid high-carb foods that don't have at least 2 gm. of naturally-occuring fiber per serving. Aren't "Tings' low in fiber? (Say yes, then I won't get any more!!)

alternative baking companies cookies are the best cookies i've ever eaten vegan or not... i dont really eat them anymore though, the worst trouble i have with junk food is alcohol because its so easy to just down liquid calories... and then your buzzed and you no longer care about calories so you have another glass :?

I eat fruit or nuts as dessert. If you eat just a lot of foods like that, an apple can become a simple dessert.
