2. I read this book because it is by the same author of Maine. It is about 4 best friends who might at Smith College. The first part is looking back on their college years together and the second half is set in the present showing how their lives and relationships have changed in the 4 years after graduation. Having gone to an all-girls college I could relate to the feelings some of the character pretty well. There are so many complexities when it comes to women's colleges. This is a great beach/summertime book if you are looking for a fun read.
3. Finally I got this sample in the mail last night and couldn't wait to try it out.
Kashi is coming out with some new Soft N Chewy bars. I got to sample the Banana Chocolate Chip. One bar contains 140 calories, 4 grams fiber, and 3 grams protein. The sugar content was a little high at 9 grams.
Overall I thought it tasted good. I am not going to say it was the best thing I ever ate because it wasn't but I would definitely have them again. The real flavor was the banana taste. I think I was hoping for something a bit more chocolate and the bits of chocolate just weren't that prominent. There was a surprise crispiness to the bar...I am thinking there might have been so rice cereal in it. I snacked on this at 11am before my lunch meeting to hold me over till my real lunch at 1pm. It did the trick.
