Dole Live Right Bites in Cranberry Almond

Dole Live Right Bites in Cranberry Almond are made with all-natural ingredients such as rolled oats and almonds. Each 34-g package includes two bites for a total of 130 calories, 3.5 g fat (0.4 g saturated fat), 3 g protein, 13 g sugar, 2 g fibre and 70 mg sodium. Other varieties are Mixed Berry & Almond, Peanut Butter Banana and Dark Chocolate Coconut. ($4 per box, 5 x 34 g)

I like to have “a little something” with my 10:30 coffee at my desk, and the fact that this comes in two bite-size pieces is perfect, as I can squirrel away the second for later. I like that this is low in saturated fat, too. It didn’t taste too sweet, even though there are 13 g of sugar; that’s probably because of the fruit. It was also very oat-y and healthy tasting.
