Keep reading for 11 new satisfyingly sweet snacks to treat your tastebuds this summer.
1. Skinny Dipped Cashews (new flavors): $24.99 (5-pack)
Skinny Dipped products have been one of our snacking go-tos for quite some time. Combine our love of nuts with a dash of chocolate or other sweet coating and it's an obvious recipe for success. So you can only imagine our excitement when the brand launched two new products: dark chocolate cocoa cashews and dark chocolate salted caramel cashews. We know it's a challenge, but try not to devour a bag in one sitting.
2. Elmhurst 1925 Oat Lattes: $19.96 (4-pack)
Oat milk has been trending over the last two years, but within the last few months, it's really solidified itself as the leading non-dairy milk of quarantine times. Its rich consistency and sweet flavor make it just the right accompaniment to all our latte needs. Elmhurst 1925 took note and wisely launched four on-the-go goods (which you can also purchase in a variety pack) in the flavors Flash Brew, Cacao, Golden Milk and Matcha.
3. Garden of Flavor Turmeric Ginger Energy Elixir: $59 (6-pack)
Garden of Flavor's nutritious juices aren't new, necessarily, but their recent emergence at Whole Foods makes them new to us! Interestingly enough, most of the ingredients in our particular beverage of choice (turmeric root, ginger root, guayusa, apple, lemon and black pepper) don't seem sweet at all—but when combined together, they produce a citrus taste with a tiny tang. Bottom line, they're Sweety High-approved.
4. Kombucha Town Original Ginger: $25.99 (6-pack)
We're fans of Kombucha Town in particular, because their beverages still pack a punch without a mass of unnecessary sugar. This flavor is our favorite because of its robust and citrusy blend of Ceylon black tea, fresh-pressed ginger and lemon. And if ginger is a bit much for you, they've got a handful of other low-carb, low-sugar (yet still sweet enough) options to choose from.
5. GT's Synergy Raw Kombucha, Golden Pineapple: $39.50 (12-pack)
GT's Synergy is one of the most popular kombucha brands on the market, and rightfully so! They offer the most eclectic flavors and they're every bit robust and delicious. One of their latest selections, Golden Pineapple, could not come out at a better time, as it's the perfect refreshing treat for the heat. Because these are pretty densely packed, we'll file this under the snack category, as it's much more than your standard sip.
6. Bare Snacks Simply Pineapple Chips: $23.99 (6-pack)
If you're a fan of dried fruit, then you're likely no stranger to Bare. But did you know they just launched a baked pineapple snack? Made with no added sugar or preservatives, these all-natural bad boys provide just the crunch we all crave, while simultaneously satisfying our sweet tooth.
7. Goli Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies: $19
If you follow anyone in the wellness space, you know that taking a shot of apple cider vinegar each morning is the recommended way to kickstart your day. But the folks behind Goli totally get that said shots aren't exactly easy on the tastebuds. The brand created the first-ever ACV gummies, so you can get your required AM intake while kicking the super sour flavor to the curb. In fact, these taste quite the opposite of your traditional serving, given that they're actually sweet. Added bonus? You can consume up to a handful per day!
8. Bubbies Hawaii Mochi Ice Cream (new flavors): $5.99 (box of 6)
If you tell us you're not a sucker for mochi, we know you're lying. With that said, Bubbies just launched a fresh batch of decadent flavors and we can't get enough. We're talkin' Peanut Butter Brownie Batter Cookie Dough, Strawberry Sugar Cookie Dough, Vanilla Birthday Cake Cookie Dough, Vanilla Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Salted Caramel and Pina Colada. There's no comparing that melt-in-your-mouth delight.
9. Chloe's Oat Milk Pops: $5.49 (box of 4)
Another brand wisely hopping on the oat milk trend? Chloe's! The popsicle company launched the very first of its kind, and in a variety of flavors to boot: Mint Chip, Salted Caramel and Raspberry Chip. Nothing compares to the creamy consistencies and decadent flavor of these dairy-free pops.
10. Dirt Kitchen Air-Dried Veggies + Nuts: $26.99 (12-pack)
If you like a hint of sweet, but err on the side of savory, these snacks from Dirt Kitchen are for you. Made up of three flavor combos (Green Beans + Roasted Almonds, Zucchini + Roasted Chickpeas and Carrots + Zucchini + Roasted Chickpeas), these nutritious nibbles combine veggies and protein, resulting in a salty, lip-smacking delight.
11. Hab. Natural Flavored Water Tablets: $27 (two-bottle pack)
While we are huge proponents of drinking our two liters of water a day, many people find it tedious—and no one recognizes that more than hab., a brand that created sweet, naturally flavored tablets you can apply to regular water to up its taste. Unlike flavored sparkling water, you're still getting the nutrients of regular h20. The on-the-go tablets give you added flavor without the hassle of incorporating fruit oils or other additions. They come in two flavors: lemon lime and clementine, and with 40 tablets per bottle.
Now that we've given you the lowdown on sweet treats, HERE are our favorite new snacks that pack a nutritious punch.
