I used to like getting a bag of both the chocolate puffs and PB puffs and mixing them, then separating them into 2 bags and keeping them in the freezer. Just like a Reeses cup :-)

I LOVE the bars so I haven't tried anything else. A friend of mine loves the chocolate pancakes because she has been making muffins out of them. She finally convinced me to try them, so tomorrow when I go in to pick up my food I will be buying a box. Hope she's right!

Yummmm - forgot about the chocolate soy nuts and I love making cake with the chocolate pancakes. Lately I've been doing the spaghetti, or the chips. I am more of a crunchy person so they satisfy that need as I often feel overloaded with too much sweet stuff between the drinks and the puddings.

+1. The Cookie is my favorite. I try to keep it down to 2 per week.

I was told you could have 1 restricted per day. Should you be only having 2 restricted per week?

No, 1 per day is correct. But I was told the cookie has more carbs than the other restricted foods, so not to eat them every day.

Southwest cheese curls are good too. They are spicy and there are a lot in the bag.

There isn't a restricted food I've had that I HAVEN'T liked; they're all delicious!

My favorites are the chilli, chocolate chip cookie, southwest curls and all of the bars!

(The chilli is delish and easy to cut up veggies/mix it with salad to get your 2 cups in!)

Bars are my all time favorite-- wish they were bigger tho.. I recently tried the apple cinnamon puffs--- SOoO good! I'm a chocolate and peanut butter lover normally but I swapped out some food and all they had were the apple cinn puffs. Glad it happened. One of my new faves

The caramel nut bar is excellent. My husband loves the chocolate chip cookies, I think they are pretty good, too. Also really like the Southwestern cheese curls; as someone else mentioned they are really good and there is a lot in the bag. They are a good alternative to chips or popcorn - I would take a bag with me to the movies next time I go. =)

Only restricted you are suppose to have twice a week are the spaghatti, chili and now the cookies that I know of. All of the others you can have ONE a day :)

I love, love, love the chocolate chip cookies!

And I really like the Southwest Cheese Curls! I use them as croutons on my salad sometimes. Will open a bag and use a few each day...the bag will last me all week.

Also really like the Chocolate Pancake & Muffin mix and the Mapel Oatmeal Mix. I was never a big oatmeal eater before but I enjoy having them for breakfast when I get tired of the omelet mixes.

I love the chili and oatmeal. I recently tried the apple cinnamon puffs and really liked them. I was also pleased at how many there were in the bag. It was a very satisfying snack.

I thought the spaghetti was only for Phase 2, so I haven't tried the sample package I have at home.

what is considered a restricted? A friend told me that your bedtime snack should be low carb. I had been having a protein bar as my bedtime snack, but now I don't want to do that. Last night I had an extra packet due to a sweet tooth and it had 11 carbs. What is the cutoff to restricted?

I love the chocolate puffs and the BBQ crisps were good. Last night, I made 5 little cookies out of the chocolate pancake mix--I will be tinkering with that recipe more. PB crunch bar is my all time favorite, and I have just ordered a package of soy nuts to give them a try next week. My coach said that the restricted bar is fine to have at night, and I have been losing weight each week, so I guess it's not a problem.

I love the spaghetti. You can only have it twice in a week, but I don't have it that often. I usually eat my restricted (a bar) for breakfast. So far I love the lemon poppyseed, the white chocolate cinnamon, and the cookies and cream bars. The Chocolate peanut butter bars are so/so, but I ordered them when I was PMSing and wanted some chocolate. They and chocolate pudding satisfied that need. I think I'll order some chili next week.
