Monthly Favorite Snacks & Drinks Roundup: February 2019

Monthly Favorite Snacks & Drinks Roundup: February 2019

Welcome to my second Monthly Favorite Snacks & Drinks Roundup!


Happy February, friends!


This month’s list of snack and drink obsessions features more snacks than drinks, mainly because I’ve been super hungry lately.


It also includes a few snacks with dairy in it which is totally against my usual strict diet.


I’ve basically started to not give as much of a fuck because I’m sick of not eating delicious things just because I’d break out in a stupid rash. YOLO, amirite?


On that note…


These are the top 10 snacks and drinks I’ve been obsessed with throughout February 2019:


If you missed January’s roundup, check it out here!


Sejoyia Coco-Thins Salted Caramel Cookies

Salted Caramel Sejoyia Coco-Thins cashew cookies


Okay, so Sejoyia makes a few different cookie flavors like Lemon Zest, Chocolate, and Vanilla (all of which I’ve tried, of course) and they’re all good, but their salted caramel cookies taste JUST like Girl Scouts Samoas… except they’re way healthier.


These paleo-friendly and gluten-free cookies are made with only five healthy ingredients like cassava flour, coconut, and cashews so they’re totally safe to binge on… anddddd yeah, I’ve been binging on them.


Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs Vegan White Cheddar

Best vegan cheese doodles ever!


If you follow me on Instagram (which you should), then you already know I’ve been obsessing over these cheese doodle knockoffs for weeks.


Do you like cheese doodles? If so, welcome to your newest snack obsession.


Hippeas chickpea puffs are organic, vegan, soy free, dairy-free, non-GMO, delicious, and all of those other amazing qualities found in a good snack. Whether or not you follow a vegan or dairy-free diet, these vegan white cheddar puffs taste EXACTLY like cheese doodles, only they’re not loaded with bad ingredients.


Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs Bohemian Barbeque

Delicious barbeque chickpea puffs that I devour on this couch.


Once I fell in love with Hippeas’ vegan white cheddar puffs, I had to try this barbeque flavor because I love me a good barbeque chip.


I honestly don’t know which flavor I like more. Regardless, these puffs are such a good, healthy alternative to LAY’S baked BBQ chips.


Try it out.


Open Road Snacks Rocky Mountain Popcorn

Popcorn that I willingly risk my smooth, non-rashed skin for.


As you already know, I’m not supposed to eat dairy, but Open Road Snacks’ white cheddar popcorn is 100% worth the risk of an allergic reaction. This popcorn is non-GMO, gluten-free, and addicting. I have yet to try the other flavors but I have Jalapeno Cheddar and Butter bags waiting for me when I’m ready. Stay tuned.


Lily’s Sweets Chocolate

Lily's Sweets Chocolate Bar Flavors
All of the different Lily’s Sweets chocolate flavors I’ve tried.


Lily’s Sweets makes chocolate bars without any added sugar, which I’m a huge fan of. I’ve tried a bunch of different flavors shown above (salted almond, dark chocolate, creamy milk chocolate, etc.) but the caramelized & salted chocolate bar has become my latest guilty pleasure. The milk chocolate isn’t dairy-free but the dark chocolate is. Again, totally worth the risk of an allergic reaction.


From The Ground Up Cauliflower Pretzel Sticks

From The Ground Up Cauliflower Pretzel Sticks
This is what a poor girl’s post-workout meal looks like.


My sister-in-law told me to try these cauliflower pretzels, and I’m SO thankful she did because omg. I could (and do) easily kill a bag of these in one sitting. These pretzels are very different than your everyday pretzel. Made from cassava flour and mix of veggies and other decently healthy ingredients, they have this flavor I can’t even describe but it’s soooo good.



GH Mumm Cardon Rose Champagne
Here’s the rosė I drank to drown away my single sorrows on Valentine’s Day.


I’m not much of a drinker or a champagne lover, but I really channeled my inner fancy/basic bitch this past month. On Valentine’s Day, my best friend and I popped open a bottle of G.H. Mumm’s rosė to celebrate how single we are while we ate our massive to-go orders of delicious fried rice at my apartment. I also tried Strongbow’s 100-calorie apple rosė hard cider. Although I had a good run with it, I think I’ll leave the rosė in February and stick with my usual fav — margaritas.




  • Lotus Foods Buckwheat & Mushroom Ramen
  • Justin’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups
  • Rebbl Dark Chocolate Protein Drink
