As you all know, I love CVS. I stop there more than twice a week and it’s the most convenient store ever. I go there for my snacks, makeup emergencies, medicine, and more. I’ve made trips to CVS for medicine way more than I wanted to this fall. Hello, cold season!
It’s been few months since I’ve done a CVS roundup, and I wanted to share all my delicious CVS finds, and show you how I incorporate their delicious brands into my lifestyle.
First off, if you haven’t heard of Gold Emblem yet, let me introduce you!
Gold Emblem abound is a popular CVS Pharmacy line made up of delicious and inexpensive snacks. The Gold Emblem Abound brand carries more than 100 products that are free of artificial preservatives and flavors. Im sure you’ve seen the Gold Emblem products from almost all of my recap posts.
Not only does CVS carry delicious Gold Emblem brands, they care some of my favorites! They have popular brands like Annie’s, Sabra, Stacey’s, Naked and more!
I really love the special edition seasonal snacks they offer. They didn’t disappoint with the pumpkin spice this year! Now that Christmas is coming up, I’m anxiously waiting to see what they come up with!
CVS also carries seasonal decor for your home. They have candles, coffee mugs, hand towels, and all kinds of fun goodies to go through.
I especially love picking up toys for the pups, and they love it too.
*btw…that cashew caramel crunch is heaven. I like to throw a couple pieces on top of my air popped popcorn.
Before I go on trips, CVS is a must-do on my travel list. I go there for travel snacks and travel necessities. They have a section for travel sized shampoos, soaps and more. I stopped at CVS before all of my road trips and big trips this summer.
Airport snacks are stupid expensive, so I always pack CVS snacks in my carryon. I love their protein bars, fruit snacks, and mixed nuts.
I took some my CVS goodies with me on my mini getaways this summer as well. They have perfect beach drinks! They have the best coconut water and they keep it cold in their store refrigerator section.
One of my FAVORITE post-run breakfasts is protein powder with Greek yogurt. CVS has the best whey protein packets that I can take with me on my trips. Taking a big tub of protein powder with me is not ideal and that is why I love the convince of CVS products. They really have everything. I bring one packet for everyday I’m there. I took my protein packets to San Francisco and Canada this summer.
They come up with the most unique products. These were perfect and even better on top of my salad.
I’m lucky because CVS is all over the Charlotte area, so when I’m out and about and need something to eat, I always turn to CVS. I actually discovered the No Cow bars (my FAVORITE) at the CVS store while I was looking for some pick-me-ups.
And for all of you popcorn lovers…The Gold Emblem brand takes the cake with their popcorn. I don’t know how, but they have the BEST flavor and it tastes so guilty for being so healthy. This is perfect for the movie theaters or road trips. I almost ate the entire bag of popcorn while watching the elections the other night. I stayed up till 4 am…
CVS literally has everything, even coconut oil. I put that $#!t on everything. I like to put a couple teaspoons of coconut oil in my first cup of coffee in the morning. The coconut oil at CVS is super inexpensive compared to the grocery story brands. CVS has also turned me into a late-night dessert monster. I like to take their crunchy granola bars (they taste just like nature valley granola bars),break them in half, top them with marshmallow fluff and a dark chocolate square. I microwave it for ten seconds and it’s like the greatest tasting s’more evr. It’s also under 100 calories. 😉
If you go to CVS often, make sure you join their FREE retail loyalty program. The CVS ExtraCare Rewards program not only helps you save money, but it personalizes offers to customers based on their shopping history! How cool is that? You just scan or swipe your ExtraCare card and gain the benefits. I keep mine on my keychain! Make sure to take advantage of the CVS Pharmacy app as well! It’s totally FREE and allows you to tap into app-only deals, easy refills, same-day photos and so much more!
I still can’t get enough of these pumpkin spiced mixed nuts…& a pumpkin latte sucker? Only you, CVS, only you.
