We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

Snacking has become more popular than ever and people are moving away from salty chips and cookies toward more healthy options. Eggland’s Best, long known for providing quality fresh and cooked eggs has entered the snack aisle with refrigerated hard-cooked egg snacks. 

Introduced this summer, each Eggland’s Best Snacks includes three foods – 1 Eggland’s Best Hard Cooked & Peeled egg, cubed cheese, plus one additional snack food.

Eggland’s Best Snacks come in 4 varieties. The packaging works as a handy tray and there is even a packet of salt and pepper to add to the egg, if you wish.

Hard-Cooked Egg Bacon & Cheddar (3.1 ounces) could be an on-the-go breakfast. It has 240 calories, 18 grams of fat, 20 grams of protein, 1 gram of carb, 230 milligrams of calcium, 80 milligrams of potassium and 590 milligrams of sodium.

Hard-Cooked Egg Chocolate Covered Almonds & Cheddar (3.4 ounces) offers a sweet/savory combination. It has 290 calories, 22 grams of fat, 14 grams of protein, 13 grams of carb, 270 milligrams of calcium, 190 milligrams of potassium and 240 milligrams of sodium.

Hard-Cooked Egg Olives & Feta (3.5 ounces) has a Mediterranean flavor. It has 190 calories, 15 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of carb, 100 milligrams of calcium, 60 milligrams of potassium and 920 milligrams of sodium.

Hard-Cooked Egg Salame & Provolone (3.3 ounces) has 240 calories, 19 grams of fat, 17 grams of protein, 1 gram of carb, 290 milligrams of calcium, 60 milligrams of potassium and 850 milligrams of sodium. With the addition of a roll, one of our tasters turned this snack into a lunch sandwich.

Eggland’s Best Snacks are a good choice for an on-the-go breakfast. Add some crackers and you have a handy lunch or use them as a good, healthy after-school or pre-game snack.
