How You Like These…Cherries

I absolutely LOVE cherries, even if I don’t get to eat them too often. They’re usually WAY out of my grocery budget, so trust that when they go on sale I typically stock up!

But yesterday ended up being a pretty big CHERRY day. It started when I opened a package that LARABAR had sent me while I was on vacation:

Umm…could it get any cuter? Why yes.

fruity 003

Yes it could. And I absolutely agree!

The new Chocolate Chip Cherry Torte LARABAR. Bonus points, it matched my dress!

Super Double Bonus Points:

it’s freakin’ delicious!

Triple Bonus Points: it’s fair trade chocolate ya’ll!

Look for it!

Then I continued to cherry it up with a bit o’ medicine:

EVERYONE at work is sick with a cold! And yesterday morning I woke up with the all too familiar drainage and weird-o head feeling. Nu-uh. So I remembered what one of my vendors told me about Umcka and so I swung/swang into Whole Foods and picked up a bottle.

To my surprise, it’s positively delicious.

Maybe since I never eat candy, I’m a little out of touch, but this tasted just like candy to me. Three times a day, don’t mind if I do.

Double surprise, it seems to be working…that had better not jinx it.

And even though it’s not cherry, it’s red and a fruit, I ended my fruity day with:

Pomegranate Blueberry Naked Juice

YUM

but here’s my beef:

fruity 034

gosh darn it if this little bottle isn’t TWO servings! You know good and well that it’s hard to just drink half the bottle! But at 300 calories, that’s my two snacks for the day! So I cut that sucker with sparkling water,

ensuring that I stuck to the serving size. PLUS now I have the other half of that bottle waiting for me at work today.

AND we all know, everything’s better with bubbles!

NERDS! I still haven’t had the chance to watch the new Gossip Girl!

Full time job + School = no buneno…or at least no tv time
