Food Find: Enlighten Me

Comments 3 Standard

So I’ve heard about these broad beans in my meeting for awhile now.

Why haven’t I tried them?

Weeellll I’ll admit I don’t always trust the opinions of my fellow Weight Watchers.  There seems to be a Smartpoint-to-amount-of-food ratio that comes into play, meaning that if it is low in Smartpoints some Weight Watchers think it’s delicious.

Or maybe I’m just a food snob, which is probably very true.

Take for instance that nastiness that is Arctic Zone Ice Cream.  At one of my meetings this lady was going on and on about how great it was and you could have the whole pint of ice cream for like 8 Smartpoints of something.

That should have been my first clue.  I took one bite of the flavorless frozen water and threw it away.

So I’m a bit skeptical when it comes to recommendations, more so when they are low in points.

I mean I don’t like Halo Top but I don’t say that out loud because I’m afraid they’ll kick my butt in the Weight Watcher parking lot.

When I saw these broad bean things at Costco I decided to take a leap of faith and get them.  People go on and on about them at my meeting, and they were all happy as hell that they were back in stock last week.

They are good.  Like really good.  And only 2 Smartpoints!


They are gluten free and packed with protein and fiber.  These would be delicious on a salad.  I wish I would have got them earlier!

You can go to their store locator to find them near you.  They have them at Costco by me, but they run out fairly often.

You can also find them on on Amazon.

Since this went so well I decided to try another product by this company.  As previously stated I am picky about my ice cream.

Don’t bother telling me how you have to let Halo Top melt or you need this flavor or that flavor.

I. Don’t. Like. It.

I’d rather spend the points on real ice cream and have less.

So to try and ice cream product is a big deal


I tried the Sea Salt Caramel bars.

Ummm, I don’t know if I can buy these again because I wanted to eat the whole box.

Seriously good.  Like really good, not good for the Smartpoints good.  Like I would eat these 7 months and 62 pounds ago good.

They are 3 Smartpoints a bar and are decent sized.  They also have pints of ice cream.

I haven’t tried those yet.  I’ll report back when I do!

Have any of you all tried it?  What’d you think?
