Cookies Without the Guilt: MiSURA Giveaway

MiSURA

You read that right; cookies without the guilt. I know it`s hard to believe right? But it is true.

It’s the Italian secret; enjoying the finer things in life without compromising on health or the waistline! MiSURA products are made with this ancient philosophy.

ABOUT MiSURA

MiSURA is an Italian based company that makes cookies, crackers, biscuits and pastas. But their products are not your usual grain-based food items.

MiSURA’s line of no-sugar-added, high fibre, high protein products make for a great snack and meal for your whole family. Finding snacks that are better for kids and still appeal to their specific tastes is often challenging. The cookie aisle in the grocery store is stacked with tons of options that may appeal to your children, but may not necessarily align with your prescribed diet for them. That is why I like MiSURA.

Let’s take a closer look at some of the MiSURA products:

OUR FAVOURITES

We received a number of the MiSURA cookies and biscuits. Among our favourites were the No Sugar Added Biscuits in both cocoa and regular flavours, the No Sugar Added Pomegranate biscuits and the 6 Cereals Biscuits. To be honest they didn’t last very long in our pantry.

All the biscuits are delish dipped in milk, but especially the cereal biscuits. Little S enjoyed eating the cookies as an after-school-snack, and I felt good about serving them. With no added sugar and the added fibre, I felt confident in sharing them with her.
