Review and GIVEAWAY - Mamma Chia Squeeze Snacks
Posted by Living, Learning, Eating at 6:00 AM
HE-LLLO, Boston Logan! That's right, lots and lots of travel. It's only been about a week, but I swear - I'm already turning into a french fry from all the low quality airport fast food (and near-the-hotel fast food) I've been consuming.
Yes, that's more or less a must and a month or two of less than healthy eating isn't going to kill me. But now and then a real power snack to get something wholesome in my system during my travels definitely does the taste buds and energy levels some good.
Mamma Chia Squeeze Snacks are doing the trick - at 3.5oz per convenient squeeze pack (shelf stable!) they're just under the TSA liquids/gels limit and are thus a perfect little something to stick in my carry-on for an onboard (or mid-trip) snack.
They're gluten-free, vegan, organic, and have 1200mg of Omega 3 fatty acids per single serving pouch!
For those of you who have tried chia seeds, they're basically the consistency of a regular chia gel (what you get when you mix chia seeds with liquid and they absorb it). The seeds aren't processed in any unusual way, as far as I can tell, but they're mixed with fruit and vegetable juices and purees, so it's sweet and tart and fruity and refreshing.
I'm not going to lie and say that everyone is going to love these or that they're kid friendly. Some kids might like them, but the pearly texture certainly isn't for everyone. The flavors, on the other hand, are great.
I think the Green Magic looks pretty great (and makes me feel pretty healthy after I snack on it) but the Blackberry Bliss Chia Squeeze is probably the tastiest. They're all pretty tasty, though, and a great light snack. Especially when you haven't been having much other healthy food for a while!
Oh, and another great plus? They're pretty new, so Mamma Chia is currently offering free shipping on online orders!
Free shipping is awesome.
