Shaklee 180™ Vanilla Chai Smoothee, Toffee and Chocolate Crunch Snack Bar and Sea Salt Snack Crisps Review

For over the past year I have been fortunate enough to use Shaklee 180™ products to help me lose over 40 pounds and 40 inches.  I have loved every smoothee and bar that I have eaten and lets face it, sometimes you just want something different.  Well, I am sure that the folks over at Shaklee have heard my pleas because they just released some new flavors and snack crisps, yay!!

When I heard that Shaklee made an energizing Vanilla Chai Smoothee mix I nearly fell over.  I adore chai.  I love everything about it but I especially love how it makes you feel so amazing on a cold, fall day.  I distinctly remember my first cup of chai and it was heavenly.  I feel like nothing will ever compare.  Well, when the new Shaklee 180™ Vanilla Chai Smoothee mix came out, I just knew I had to have some.  When my package arrived on my doorstep I ripped right into it.  I ran to my fridge, grabbed my milk and made myself a smoothee.  It was rich, creamy, spicy and absolutely everything I would ever want a "diet smoothee" to taste like.  It was ecstasy!  I even tried it with slightly warm milk and my oh my was it delicious!

The next new item I knew I had to have were the Sea Salt Snack Crisps.  You know that time of day, smack dab in the middle of the afternoon when you are craving something crunchy, something salty but you don't want to ruin your diet?  Yeah, I thought you knew that feeling!

 Well, my new favorite go-to snack idea to help beat those cravings is a bag of sea salt snack chips dipped into a mix of plain greek yogurt and super spicy salsa (you can sub any salsa you want but I adore things very spicy!)  This snack is not only low in calories but it is packed with protein thanks to the Greek yogurt and Snack Crisps.  This snack will also leave you satisfied until dinner!

Since we are being honest here I have to admit that I haven't been the biggest fan of the Shaklee 180™ snack bars.  While I love the flavor of the peanut butter and I like the zing of the lemon cranberry, they aren't something that make or break my day the way that the smoothees do!  When I received a box of the Toffee and Chocolate Crunch snack bars, I had high hopes....very high hopes.  I tossed one in my purse and ran out the door one day.  About a half hour later my stomach was growling and I reached for my snack bar.  I was absolutely blown away by how decadent it tasted.  It was soft yet crunchy and it had small soft flecks of toffee strewn throughout....pure bliss.  I couldn't believe how great they were.

All in all I am absolutely stoked for the new Shaklee 180™ products because they lead to more diversity and it helps me to stay focused on the program.

Which one of these new products are you intrigued to try?
