less fat, more love

i picked up my sweet, adorable friend patty for lunch yesterday......and as she got in the car she handed me the most gorgeous royal blue bag containing these little bite-size nuggets of pure happiness!


but these little morsels aren't your traditional melt-in-your-mouth goodness......these have a spectacular, crunchy, salty, sweety crunch inside.....pretzels!! and i must confess to being so excited that the bag was open before i could put the car in reverse, and we had eaten the entire thing before we even got to the restaurant......where we both had salads to balance out the massive intake of sugar and carbs that we had just consumed......


and then later i noticed this little nutritional fact on the back of the bag......
so in my i-got-a-D-in-high-school-calculus brain, that probably means that i can eat 30% more............right?

more about these new m&m's here!

Your photos are gorgeous! Oh, and thanks for nibbling those two just enough so we could see the yummy pretzel inside. Such control not to just pop the whole dang thing in your mouth and crunch away. This blogging thing is not always easy huh?

Dolores said...

Those look so good. Probably only available in the US, though. Maybe my daughter can pick some up for me when she goes next month...

Eden said...

I HAVE got to get some of those!! And to think they aren't as I would've thought!

Mary said...

Hi Lori! I just added these to my list of things I NEED to pick up today! I didn't even know about these delicious looking goodies. (your photos are so wonderful!) I know tomorrow the snap and half the zipper on my jeans will be open and hidden underneath a nice big hide-it-all type of shirt...but who cares when such yumminess is concerned!! Patty must be a very special friend! xo Paulette

oh my gosh! i had these once because a family member brought them to a gathering & i've been meaning to get my own stash & i'm writing down the reminder in my calendar RIGHT NOW!! :) xx

Crystal said...

Woo hoo!
I hadn't heard about these. They sure sound delish - so thank you - I think!?! ;-)

And did my heart ever smile when I caught a glimpse of your adorable thumbprint/pinky fingerprint card - with you and your little dutch sweetie!

So cute, Lori!!!

Hugs,
Crystal :-)

Megan Coyle said...

Oh my goodness, I want a bag!!

Linda said...

I heard about those. I'm usually a M&M's with almonds kind of gal, but those do look and sound pretty darn good!

Linda said...

Oh Lori Your goodies look and sound soooo tempting, but I think I will pass on these. I just reached my goal weight in my weight loss program - 53 pounds down - so I think I just better keep them away. Ouch. So glad you and your friend enjoyed them though. Linda E.

Shirley said...

I hadn't heard about these so I will definitely have to check them out. They sound really good. Have a wonderful day.

Pat said...

My secret hiding place could use a bag of these. Now I have something to look forward to on my next shopping trip.

Sophia said...

hahaha you are so cute! :) I'll stick to the peanut ones, though. hee

PaperPumpkin said...

Oh my goodness! I haven't even seen an ad for them here in WNY! Why have I not heard of these?? They have Kath written ALL over them! I'm going on a hunt. Mia will be thrilled, too!

Kim Hambric said...

I was just sitting here, reading blogs, and munching on M&Ms dark chocolate. Guess I'll have to expand my horizons.
