Emerald Breakfast on the Go ~Review & Giveaway~

Family schedules ramp up during summer!!! Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and often times we forget to fuel up before tackling the day. As discovered in a new survey from Emerald Nuts Breakfast on the go! - less than 43 percent of Americans eat breakfast on a daily basis. And close to half (41 percent) of breakfast eaters eat their meal on the go at least once a week. While 35 percent have balanced eating while driving and 20 percent have eaten breakfast while getting dressed!

To help those busy parents get through the morning rush and survive a hectic summer day schedule, Emerald Nuts recently launched a new pack and snack breakfast product - Breakfast on the go! made with dried fruit, granola clusters and satisfying Emerald Nuts.

Available in three flavors - Berry Nut Blend, Breakfast Nut Blend and S'mores Nut Blend. (They all Taste Great!!!)

Berry Nut Blend (180 calories/serving)

This is my Favorite!!! It tastes Really Good!!! I love the combination of the dried fruit,glazed walnuts, yogurt covered raisins,granola and roasted peanuts. This is the perfect way to get the energy you need to start the day. Or eat it as the perfect snack.

Breakfast Nut Blend (180 calories/serving)

This tastes really Good too!! There is apple cinnamon glazed walnuts, honey roasted peanuts,granola and dried fruit in this perfect snack pack.

S'mores Nut Blend (200 calories/serving)

Enjoy all the flavorful fun of S'mores for breakfast or a quick snack. In this one, there is cocoa roasted almonds, honey roasted peanuts, granola, chocolate candies, marshmallows and coconut. This tastes really good and is a great way to get your chocolate fix in only 200 Calories.

Emerald Breakfast on the go! is the latest in the better-for-you snacks lineup from Diamond Foods. Recently the company launched www.diamondbettersnacking.com to help consumers find out more about snacks that fuel an active lifestyle.

Since we raise our own chickens, I usually have eggs and sausage for breakfast. There are times when I am on the go and don't get to take time to make and eat breakfast so I will grab an granola bar. These Emerald breakfast on the go packets looks so delicious and nutritious.
