by Today

Sometimes you just need a snack, but you don’t want to make a huge calorie or time investment, like if you’re heading to lunch with a friend and getting hangry but don’t want to arrive with a full stomach. Or maybe you’re feeling peckish on your way to pick up the kids, but you’ll have dinner as soon as you get home. That’s when you need something just right to get you from point A to point B.
