Week one of the new semester is now complete. Â What a crazy week it has been for me. Â I had been prepared to teach two different lecture classes, but got a lab added and then another lab added on the third day of classes! Â Apparently, students decided to do a lot of registering after classes began this semester. Â I’m glad for the money, but it makes my Wednesdays super long. Â Luckily for me, I have fall-back food.
In fact, it’s how I got through my last month of grad school: thinkThin
The Caramel Fudge bar is obviously not a candy bar, but it has a very minimal “protein” aftertaste. Â Carter is currently stealing what’s left of my bar, saying in his evil genius voice “it’s all mine.” Â TheÂ chocolate outside is great – smooth and just sweet enough. Â The caramel-flavored inside is good, too. Â It is not caramel in texture, however, but has the typical thick peanut butter (from a natural jar that wasn’t stirred) texture with a few small chunks of peanuts throughout.
I’m not kidding when I say these babies got me through grad school. Â They are satisfying, easy-to-eat, enjoyable, and quite portable.
ThinkThin Divine: treats without the guilt! Â It is the candy bar version for those of us who are being health conscious. Â The German Chocolate bar is “Mmmmmm” (says Carter) outstanding. Â It is packed with coconut goodness and chocolate, but it also has 8 grams of dietary fiber and 6 grams of protein. Â It does remind me of a German chocolate cake (wrapped in a layer of chocolate). Â The chocolate is smooth and sweet, but not overly sweet. Â When you’re trying to eat right but need a treat, it is a “very, very, very, very yummy” (again, Carter) option to satisfy that need you’ve got.
ThinkThin also has a fiber line. Â I’ve had the chance to try the Milk Chocolate Toffee Almond. Â Thirteen grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber make it a pretty healthy snack or meal replacement (only 2 grams of sugar), and should help fill you up. Â The “nougat” part is soft and chewy. Â The toffee flavor is very faint compared to toffee candies, but the flavors work together very well. Â I really enjoyed the bar I shared with Carter, even if it had been squished by a textbook or two. Â Carter liked it even more than German Chocolate Divine bar!
