New Year, New Me – High Protein Cheese Snacks
I’ve not been blogging much this month because I’ve turned into a salad eating gym bunny. That’s right I’ve been sucked into the ‘New Year, New Me’ bullshit but I didn’t want the pounds that I put on at Christmas to still be hugging my hips come Valentine’s Day. At the time I felt no shame in scoffing the last of the Celebrations but I do regret it now and even lost a bit of my dignity when my arse burst out of my jeans. If only I could pull off the big booty like Beyonce.
Even though I’m on a health kick just now doesn’t mean to say that I’ve gone cheese-total. GoGo’s Protein Snacks have been an absolute saviour these past few weeks. They’ve been out for a while now but I’ve only just noticed them in the shops. These cheesy snacks are packed with protein – perfect for when you’re pounding the gym. Each one is split into three compartments which contain reduced fat cheese and various accompaniments.
There are three different varieties to choose from:
- Protein Snack, Crunchy Bean Boost – roasted edamame beans & chilli and lime peas, reduced fat cheese bites and dark chocolate covered coffee beans and pretzel sticks
- Protein Snack, Oat Boost – spicy roasted corn & roasted edamame beans, reduced fat cheese bites and fruity and seeded flapjacks
- Protein Power, Ultimate Boost – soy broad beans & roasted edamame beans, reduced fat cheese bites and chorizo bites
I’ve tried two out of the three – Crunchy Bean Boost and Oat Boost. I don’t really fancy the other one. Don’t get me wrong I love chorizo but I prefer it cooked. The ones that I tried were amazing. I loved the combinations and the interesting flavours. The dark chocolate covered coffee beans and pretzel sticks were a pleasant surprise because I didn’t know what to expect. And, oh my word that cheese is delicious!
GoGo’s make a great afternoon snack. I don’t know about you but come 3pm I always need a little pick me up and GoGo’s do the job just fine. However, I have to say they’re a little pricier than 35p for a Granny Smith from your local Tesco. The two that I tried were £1.50 each but the chorizo one is £2 which is probably another reason why I haven’t tried it.
They’re manufactured by Kerry Group who are the ones who brought your Cheesestrings so, of course, I was a little apprehensive about trying GoGo’s because Cheesestrings are absolutely disgusting. Yes, I have found a cheese that I don’t like but does that rubbery crap even count as cheese anyway? Luckily GoGo’s were a hit and I’ve had a pack nearly every day since.
If you’re on a health kick like me just now go try these protein snacks – you won’t be disappointed. Not only do they fill a hole but they’re tasty as hell. You’ll find them at the likes of Asda, Tesco and the Co-op.
