Foodie Thursday: A Valentine's Day Sweet Treat

When I was in college one of my favorite breakfasts was toast with cinnamon sugar butter. It's one of my all time favorite comfort foods and just the memory of warm toast with the aroma of cinnamon makes me feel happy. It was the perfect food to fortify me to trudge across campus for morning classes in the New England winter. 

The years passed and I no longer trudge across campus, and the plates of butter mixed with cinnamon and sugar became a distant memory -- until this week. The very nice folks at Bearitos asked me if I would like to try their new limited edition Bearito Pita Chips. There are two fabulous flavors, Fair Trade Cocoa and Cinnamon Sugar. Yes, bloggy buddies, cinnamon sugar is back in my life, and it's delicious.



It's a great snack, non GMO and filling, and both flavors would be great for a Valentine treat. I do like candy, but I'm working on cutting down my candy consumption and this works so well for me. I'm thinking of getting my favorite low-fat cream cheese -- mixed with yogurt -- and adding a little cherry jam for a dip. 
 
 
I made a trip to Whole Foods -- the only place to find these limited edition pita chips -- yesterday and found this treasure trove. 


Both are great flavors, and I am leaning to Cinnamon Sugar for my Valentine special snack. But I know there are lots of cocoa fans in Buttercupland, too. Which flavor would you choose? Cocoa or Cinnamon and Sugar?

Happy to report the sun is shining in New York city today. I'm catching up on home things this morning and looking forward to a coffee get-together a little later today. I hope there's sunshine in your day, too.

As always, thanks for visiting and take good care.

Please note: I received the product in order to sample, but the opinions are all mine.

I would want a bag of each! lol But I can't eat sugar so I have to look at the labels of everything! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Diane

You have enticed me to go into the kitchen and put together some cinnamon and sugar for toast. What a delicious memory! We have sunshine and cold here today.

Best,

I remember enjoying that toast as a child too. Sometimes my mom would use powdered sugar on it, and put it in the oven. Delish. Enjoy your cinnamon pita chips.

Pita Chips are yummy with hummus. Never thought of them being flavored. I would go with the cinnamon ones. They sound tasty all on their own.

Hmm! Both sound really good but I think I'd lean toward cinnamon sugar. When we were kids, my mom used to make toast with cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top after she buttered it. So...I'll go with the memories!

Nellie said...

Oh! I would choose the cocoa, of course. Anything chocolate.:-) We have a Whole Foods under construction here, the first. I'm eager for it to open, and I'll go looking for these goodies.

I'd never heard of cinnamon sugar toast, but it sounds wonderfully nourishing. What a sweet memory!

Hands down, I'd go for the cinnamon sugar chips. I'll have to keep a look-out for them down here.

Buttercup, I can't even begin to tell you how much cinnamon toast I have made for my daughters, while they were growing up. Remember the cinnamon bear shaker?? My girls love it. Thanks for bring back that sweet memory. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

I'm weak and would most likely grab a bag of both kinds. They look delicious!

Pam said...

There's nothing much better than cinnamon toast and those chips look great. Glad you got your cinnamon sugar fix! :-)
