Foodie Friday: Emerald Breakfast on the go! Review and GIVEAWAY!! (2 winners) **ENDED**

Here are some interesting statistics for you (provided by Emerald Breakfast on the go!):
- Less than 43% of Americans eat breakfast every day
- 41% of breakfast eaters eat their meal on the go at least once a week
- 35% of breakfast eaters eat while driving
- 20% of breakfast eaters eat breakfast while getting dressed
- 40% believe that trying to incorporate healthy foods takes the enjoyment out of breakfast
- 56% of people admit to spending more time picking out an outfit than choosing breakfast
 
If you fit into any of these categories, then you should know about Emerald Breakfast on the go!  Flavor options include Berry Nut Blend, Breakfast Nut Blend, and my personal favorite, S'mores Nut Blend.  Each pouch contains 200 calories or less and is filled with Emerald nuts, dried fruit, crunchy granola clusters, and a variety of other additions depending on the flavor option.
 
Review:  I loved that each serving comes in an individual packet. The carefully proportioned size means that I will not be tempted to overeat. The blend of salty and sweet tastes are to die for. I love granola, so these are a real treat. The S'mores is my absolute favorite and it certainly tastes more like a treat than a healthy breakfast option. The Breakfast Nut Blend has more of a healthy feel to it but it is still really delicious. The Berry Nut Blend was also very good. I am not a huge fan of walnuts, but enjoyed the mix just the same.

Overall, I would say if you are going to eat on the go, then this is a better option than some of the foods you may be choosing. They are pretty filling and very tasty! I know this will not be the last time I eat these.
Buy it here: Emerald Breakfast on the go! products can be found at your local grocery store. Click here for a $1 off coupon!

Win it here: Two (2) lucky Cake Mom readers are going to win a box of each of the three flavors!!

Most of the time I eat breakfast on the run. It's usually a breakfast taco. We have a guy that delivers to the office every morning so it's more out of convenience. Definitely could use something a little healthier, and also quick for when I'm at work or on the go.
Thanks for the giveaway!

My typical breakfast is a farm fresh omelette. We raise our own chickens so eggs are plentiful here. However, there are times we something comes up last minute and I am forced to forgo breakfast because I have nothing on hand to just eat on the run. This would solve that problem.

I sometimes eat cereal or oatmeal with almond milk, but usually I eat leftover potatoes, vegetable dumplings, or something made by Amy's. I know I'm weird, but I don't like typical breakfast foods, I'd rather have a meal. I eat breakfast every day and I eat at home. I actually spend more time on breakfast than picking out my clothes!
