Healthier cookies, popcorn from FairPrice
FairPrice-exclusive snacks offer healthier options for movie night
Whether you are at the cinema with friends or staying in with loved ones, snacks are as vital a part of movie night as the film you are watching.
But while such goodies are indeed delicious, they often do our health no favours.
Sticking to a healthier diet can be hard, but sometimes all it takes is finding more wholesome alternatives to what you are used to eating.
Enter Voortman cookies and Natural Park popcorn, which are exclusive to FairPrice.
Produced by Voortman Bakery in Canada, Voortman Cookies are snacks that mindful eaters can appreciate as they use only real whole grain oats, coconut and almonds, and contain no artificial colours, flavours, high-fructose corn syrup or trans fat.
The brand's bakers take the time to perfect each and every original cookie recipe using wholesome ingredients. Differences like these make each bite so delicious.
Voortman Chocolate Chip Cookies (200g, $2.95) are baked with real chocolate, Voortman Coconut cookies (200g, $2.95) are baked with real shredded coconut and Voortman Almond Delight Cookies (350g, $4.50) are baked with real almonds.
