The best snack since Mum mums…

I went to Costco yesterday and stumbled across these fantastic all natural fruit crisps.

I thought I would give them a try, primarily because they are 100% fruit, and nothing else. These snacks don’t have anything added to them, they are just freeze-dried fruit, so I know I can feed them to my family without adding to their sugar intake.

Otter loves them. They have the crispiness and consistency of his Mum Mums, but they have a rich flavor, so he gobbles them up. He can hold them all by himself, and loves to chomp away on them. Yesterday he ate the freeze-dried equivalent of three apples and one pear. (It was the first day of the crisp experiment, I think I will limit his intake a bit more today.)

Monkey loves them, and they are a great crunchy alternative to chips. They also fit into the car, or the diaper bag, or a backpack as an emergency snack, since they require no refrigeration.

Lee and I even love them, and find them a healthy alternative to our junkie snack foods. Mmmm… hopefully they will help me get the last of the baby weight off by satisfying my sweet tooth!

Anyway, El Bebe is asking for more freeze-dried apple crisp, so I should go. Have a good Tuesday!

When did Steven Colbert get so sexy? (and Haiku Friday)

Is it just me, or did Colbert go from goofy faux correspondent, to slightly less goofy faux O’Reilly, to a fox!

This is him on the Daily Show:

He was doofy, he was goofy. He did not wear a power tie, he did not have a Kennedy Bouffant. He was the weird counterpart to sarcastically sexy Stuart.

This was him when his own show was announced:

Look at that! POW! He pops, he raises an inquisitive brow! He has “it”. (Oh, and he is wearing a power tie. What is it with the power tie? Why does it make me think bad things?)

Now, it could be his amazing sense of humor, and the speech he gave at the White House Press Correspondents Dinner, which was a powerful moment in my political history and made me love him. However, even without these things, I think he has managed to increase his sex appeal.

In the end, it doesn’t matter, he had me at “Folks, the President needs a break. He’s like a Black and Decker cordless Dirt Devil vacuum. If you don’t recharge his batteries, he can’t suck.”

It is also Haiku Friday! Here is my first attempt:
