This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of barkTHINS at Walgreens. The opinions and text are all mine.

Disclosure: I was asked to participate in the #MyHappyPlace campaign, sponsored by barkTHINS® at Walgreens. Although I have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

For me, it’s not easy juggling a career, family, friends, and a blog. We live in a very fast-paced environment and everything is on-the-go. It is very easy to become tired and burned out. One can argue that the best way to ensure a stabilized, balanced life is to go at a sustainable pace. Although I don’t disagree with that, I’ve found it’s sometimes just not practical. Being a busy working mom, my daily routines are just going to be busy and stressful at times.

To alleviate the stress, I practice yoga and take long vacations whenever possible. Realistically, I don’t have the luxury of taking frequent long vacations to rejuvenate myself. However, aside from practicing yoga, I can count on healthy snacks to keep me recharge and escape from the stress of the day. One of my favorite snacks on-the-go is from barkTHINS®. They provide the perfect snack without compromising on flavor or quality for people like me who seek for that happy place in their lives.

Every time I stop by Walgreens (and you all know how much I love shopping there) I always pick up a bag or two. Just last week I stopped by Walgreens to pick up four bags of barkTHINS® for home and work. From now until July 29, Walgreens is having a promotion where you can buy 2 for $8 on 4.7oz pouches.

As you all are aware, as a family, we try to lead a healthy lifestyle. So it’s no surprise that barkTHINS® snacks live and breathe in our household. Let me tell you why.

barkTHINS® are thin pieces of Fair Trade, high-quality dark chocolate, made with non-GMO ingredients with no artificial flavors or colors to truly help elevate your snacking experience. There are FOUR flavors available at Walgreens: Dark Chocolate Almond with Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt, Dark Chocolate Mint and Dark Chocolate Coconut with Almonds. barkTHINS® definitely have taken snacking to a different level!

Although four of these flavors taste good the Dark Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt would have to be my favorite. There’s something about the chocolate’s slight bitterness with the crispy pretzel bits and sea salt makes it hard to stop at just one or two pieces. barkTHINS® snacks have been part of my daily afternoon tea rituals for a few months now because they are the perfect guilt-free snack.

So if you are looking to elevate your afternoon snacking game, make sure to grab a bag (or two or three) of barkTHINS® snacking chocolate at Walgreens! I guarantee that it will recharge and rejuvenate you and completely satisfied from your snack cravings!


  1. You know, I have seen these and thought numerous times about trying them! There is just something so wonderful about that salty/sweet combination. After reading this, I will be picking some up for myself!

      Yes, they are. I just picked up a couple more bags today.

  2. Never tasted chocolate with pretzels, actually I’m usually skipping the sweets department and replace them with fruits, especially with those high in fiber. But this snacking chocolate tempts me to break the rules. 🙂

  3. Those do look amazing. Who can go wrong with pretzels and chocolate? Really? And that’s great that they try to be as healthy as possible.

  4. Pretzels and chocolate together is my type of treat for sure. Also, I like that it is dark chocolate because it has good health benefits.

  5. I love this so much! It’s the perfect snack, it’s tasty and it’s healthy! I love the combination of sweet and salty, definitely! It’s one of my favorites!
