Hey there Fitter Foodies.. Happy New Year to you!!!!!! I hope if you’re someone who eats healthy you threw out all that wonderful holiday food or at least you are now eating it in moderation and are back on track.
I decided to get in touch with a wonderful company – Healthy Vending by h.u.m.a.n. They have vending machines all over. HUMAN healthy vending machines are filled with everything; snacks and drinks both hot and cold. They describe themselves as “the world’s first health activist company to distribute eco-friendly and high-tech vending machines that only vend nutritious foods while simultaneously educating the consumer on nutrition and the products in the machine at the point of sale (via 23″ LCD screens).” I want to share some reviews on products they sent me. Over the next month or so I will be reviewing the following products that can be found in their machines.
Popchips – Sour Cream and Onion Potato
Revolution foods – Organic Mashups squeezable fruit, unsweetened – Berry flavor
Zico – Pure Premium Coconut Water with natural Mango Flavor – Yummy I can’t wait for that one
Nestle – Juicy Juice – 100% Apple Juice
Roll-ups – Simply Fruit – Strawberry
Planters NUT-rition – Wholesome Nut Mix
Cliff – All natural Crunch Granola bar – white chocolate macadamia nut
Annies – Organic Granola bar
Kashi TLC Roasted Almond Crunch
Larabar – Cherry Pie
Larabar – Cashew Cookie
So, let’s start off today with Popchips

Let me start by saying they are not only popped but they pop in your mouth meaning they have a good texture. They are definitely tasty and they would take away the edge for potato chips if you are watching your fat intake. Do they have the same crunch…no…but I am just as satisfied because I normally wouldn’t eat potato chips when eating healthy…so hooray for Popchips. I will buy them in the future. When passing your local Human Healthy Vending Machine (http://www.healthyvending.com) give them a try. Let me know how you rate them.
See you soon with another review…. stay tuned!!!!
