Fun Monday #29, Favorite Treat

Beckie from Give it A Try, One Day at a Time hosts today's Fun Monday. She wants to see our favorite treats.

I love whole wheat fruit bars so much that I often have cravings for them. The ones pictured here are raspberry filled. Other fruit choices are strawberry, blueberry, fig, apricot -- you get the idea.

They are packaged and sold under a locally owned market brand. I'm sure the "Whole Wheat" thing is just a gimmick to make me think I'm eating something that is good for me. It worked. I'm hooked.

The other thing I truly love is chocolate.

While driving in Seattle this weekend I snapped this bumper sticker on a chocolate lovers side window.


That pretty much sums it up.

Check in at Beckie's to see other's favorite indulgence.

Ok, since you say the Whole Wheat thing is probably a scam, I can live with those. Otherwise, I'm out.

Hey maybe Twinkies should start saying theirs are Whole Wheat too!
Ah! Sweets for the sweet!

Steffi said…
I like fruity things too and salty.

Love the bumper sticker -- just out of curiosity, was it on a VW bus? Just looking at the shape of the window - I'm a bus nut.
~JJ! said…
Yup. Chocolate. I could live in it.

Oh, what could be sweeter:
Chocolate Dipped Pamela's...
I think the "whole wheat" thing gotcha with their marketing ploy.
Melanie said…
Anything chocolate for me!

I'm hopping around these Fun Monday posts with serious tummy rumbling!
theotherbear said…
great bumper sticker :)
You just keep telling yourself those bars are healthy, if that is what you want to believe :)
Beckie said…
I think that I have tried something like that before and it is pretty darn good and you can't go wrong with chocolate!
Shelby said…
LOVE the chocolate thing.. so true :)
irreverentmama said…
I HAVE to show this post to my husband. That sign? That sums him up perfectly. He is a chocolate man, never without his stash.

Domestic harmony is maintained because chocolate, though I like it, is not my consuming vice.
Simply Jenn said…
Can I just openly admit I love you? I read your reese's post at Karmyn's and it cracks me up. Mostly I love you for your willing to email me private advice about an, er slightly embarrassing predicament I was in. And I pray with all my heart that I have the relationship with my kids and grandkids that you have when the kids are grown.
BarnGoddess said…
those homemade treats are great. I LOVE these pralines only found in WaWa Ontario....now I am craving them!

that is a cool bumpersticker.

saturday morning the family and I were out to breakfast and a group of friendly firemen came into the restaurant. I thought about you :)
Debbie said…
Love that sticker.

I just came from writing my Fun Monday all about chips, and then saw that you picked a "healthy" one! Sheesh. ;) At least you redeemedyourselfwith chocolate. :)
Y'a know, I'm more of a fruit bar than I am a "chocolate" kinda girl.

Or maybe I'm just a fruit.
Kaytabug said…
Yum yum, those bars sound yummy! I love that bumper sticker!!
DesLily said…
can anyone go through life without chocolate???
Debs said…
Those sound good to me. :D
Jenni said…
Those do look like a healthy snack. If you wouldn't have said anything, I'm sure no one would ever have known the difference.

That is a great bumper sticker! I think I'd like to fall in chocolate right about now, Mmmmm!

Hey, WT, do you suppose if you eat enough Twinkies you'll live forever? Or at least look really great long after you're dead? Those preservatives ought to have some benefit to us, right?
Karina said…
Oh boy do I love that bumper sticker! SO TRUE! ;-)

Those fruit bars actually look mighty delicious, I love raspberry flavored stuff...and like you said "whole wheat" means it must be good for you, right? ;-)
Robin said…
Perfect example of "tellin' 'em what they wanna hear"! S U R E they're good for you. They couldn't tell a story, could they?

But that bumper? Could've been on my car ;). Chocolate is my friend. And enemy. Because there is such a think as liking something too much.
Rachel said…
I need that bumper sticker! I'm not real big on fruit bars but, luckily, my kids love them!
Heather said…
What about fig newtons? I mean, who doesn't love fig newtons?
Tiggerlane said…
LOVE the bumper sticker - but I'm surprised you didn't have any nectarines in your post.

Hope they took the stickers off, before they made those bars....
wolfbaby said…
*giggle* that is funny forget love i want to fall in choclate.. funny funny
ChrisB said…
Most of us seem to love chocolate. Have you ever tried making your own fruit bars?
susan said…
Ahh, you caught on to the whole wheat scam, huh? Watch out for all that "organic" stuff too!

Those do look wonderful though, we can just pretend that they are very healthy!
Kahless said…
I want to fall in chocolate now too!!!

great bumper sticker.
Shauna said…
Yummy! Rasberry - my fav too! ! !
PEA said…

Kathleen Marie said…
Ha! I love that bumper sticker. Cute! I have never had those bars nor anything like them. A recipe anyone?

Hope you are doing wonderfully well!

Hugs!
Karmyn R said…
WE bought some raspberry ones when we stopped at the Olive Pit - I was the only one who ate them.
Masago said…
...makin' me hungry!
Frances said…
There are stores here in NYC that carry those fruit bars. They are addictive.
Thanks for stopping in.
Frances
The Pear Lady said…
ohhhh, healthy treat you've there. Sounds good. Yep, I agree with that sticker, too. LOL!
kailani said…
Those raspberry bars look a little too healthy for me! However, I would love to fall in chocolate! Yum!
Robocop said…
I think I am in the mood for rasberries**LOL**
Melissa said…
Ooh. I would love to try those apricot ones. I have been on somewhat of an apricot binge lately - my apricot preserves are dwindling more every day. Yummy!

I would also like to fall in chocolate. Let me know if you find a vat somewhere. I'll join you! :)
lisa's chaos said…
Chocolate would win for me most of the time but that healthy stuff looks good too. :) Maybe we could pour some chocolate sauce over it.
Gattina said…
I am (fortunately) not so keen on sweet things, so I would rather eat fruits then chocolate.
Now I know the truth about you, you are sitting in a window and sell nice stuff to clients on the street ? lol !
dawn said…
I love that saying. I think chocolate is great too. I think I gained 10 pounds today reading the Fun Mondays
dieter said…
Dark Chocolate is my weakness. see my blog lol
Beccy said…
Those health bars sound like a delicious treat and I'm totally with you on the loving chocolate thing!
david santos said…
I come to be thankful to you for the work that you have developed in yours blogue and to desire good vacations to you.
Devon said…
Somewhere in Seattle is a kindred spirit... I love chocolate and frogs! Quirky bumper stickers aren't bad either!
nikki said…
I actually really like fruit bars too! I don't feel guilty and yet I am satisfied!
coffeypot said…
Sweet Tea has a t-shirt that says, "Chocolate and Men; The Richer the Better."
C said…
I love the bumper sticker.
Susie Q said…
How about those fruit bars covered in dark chocolate? With chocolate sprinkles? Chocolate is very healthy for your emotional well being and *I* must be the healthiest emotionally well human being there is!

Hugs,
Sue
The fruit bars do not tempt me.... but chocolate? That stuff is more addictive than advertised!
mjd said…
I do not know how this happened. I missed your Fun Monday post. If the whole wheat bars are raspberry, they have to be good. Happy Fun Monday on this Wednesday morning.
Tammy said…
What? You were in Seattle too? And so was another blogger friend? We could have had a whole blogging reunion up there, as well as my meeting my old school friend!

That wasn't my bumper sticker you saw...but oh how I love chocolate! ;)
kate said…
loling about the chocolate! The cookies look yummy! I am on a strict no sugar diet... so I am really drooling!
Kila said…
LOL, I like the bumper sticker!
James Burnett said…
Cupcakes for me. The chocolate ones. I think I want make them the permanent backdrop for my blog, I'm so hooked on 'em. They double as treat and guilty pleasure for me.
Mert said…
