A Tasty Snack

If anyone has ever wondered what is a good, healthy snack in between meals to suppress hunger, here is a tasty suggestion: Costco's Kirkland Signature Fruit Nut Medley. The 8+ lbs. bag consists of a cornucopia of, as quoted on the package, peanuts, almonds, walnuts, apples, kiwi, mangoes, papaya, pineapple, strawberries, bananas, cherries, and raisins. At under $15 (i.e., less than $2 per pound, or, in other words, about a quarter per serving), it's a very good deal.

True, the kiwi, papaya and strawberries are dehydrated, the cherries - dry, and the plethora of nuts may cause allergies for some. However, this is still delicious, and quite addictive.

Just forget the part I mentioned about suppressing hunger. Overindulging in this, as in almost anything, is sure to add to one's waistline... and with that will eventually come a larger appetite.
