Healthier Products to Look Out For at CVS + Fall Giveaway

Working with CVS Pharmacy over the past couple of years has been a blast. I love learning all about their new items and reporting back to you! Speaking of new products at CVS, their fall limited edition products are on point this year. It makes me especially happy seeing how excited you get for the giveaways and how interested you all are when it comes to learning all about what CVS has to offer! I had many readers send me pictures of their shower tablet purchases from last month’s post, and it made my day! But seriously, how amazing are those?

Today’s post is going to be a fun one! I’m sharing some healthy snacks from popular brands that CVS has available in their stores. If you need healthier snacks for lunch, while you’re out and about, or for road trips, CVS has your back. When it comes to a healthy lifestyle, I’m all about balance! So in addition to sharing some of those healthier snacks, I’ll also be sharing a quick idea for a last-minute party tray that you can bring to any occasion. No one will have any idea that it was courtesy of CVS.

I’ll also be kicking off the fall season with a fun CVS giveaway. It’ll include some of the healthy snacks featured in this post! 
I don’t know about you, but I’m always out and about during the months of Fall. After a hot summer, all I want to do is spend my time outdoors. I love shopping at farmer’s markets, little shops downtown, or taking my dogs to new trails. Many people hibernate in the winter, but down here, we hibernate in the summer. Once fall hits, I’m so excited to be on the go!

Nine years ago, I turned my unhealthy habits around and created a healthy lifestyle that I could always follow. I learned to love fitness and started to pay attention to the types of foods I was eating. In 2014, CVS created a healthy lifestyle for themselves by removing all tobacco products for their shelves. It didn’t just stop there, they have continued to make leading a balanced and healthier lifestyle for their customers more convenient and accessible. It’s a lot easier to stay on track and reach for better choices when they are available. I know that I’ll be able to achieve that every time I walk into a CVS Pharmacy.

CVS has expanded their healthier food options. You can find a healthier snack from your favorite national and niche brands to fit your savory cravings, sweet cravings, or both! Brands like Lenny & Larry’s, Halo Top, Enjoy Life, Hippeas, Annie’s, Amy’s Kitchen, and more have been taking over the CVS shelves. They have a lot of kid-friendly snacks for all the mom’s out there!

I’m also pretty pumped that CVS carries one of my favorite sparkling water brands, Bubly! The grapefruit flavor is my favorite. I love sparkling water because it’s bubbly like soda and quenches your thirst while hydrating you, and way healthier than sugary soda drinks. I’ve never enjoyed drinking water, and I know that is terrible, so sparkling water helps me stay hydrated.
When I was a kid, I always wanted to pick out something from the candy section at the checkout when we went to stores. I’m sure most kids do this. It’s hard to ignore all the candy when it’s at a kid’s eye level. At CVS 25% of the front checkout, space is dedicated to “better-for-you” options. This makes it easier for a parent to compromise by letting their child pick out a healthier choice from brands like Larabar, KIND bar, RXBAR, or exclusive store brand Gold Emblem Abound snack bars. To be honest, this isn’t just for kids! I find myself grabbing something healthy from the CVS checkout line almost every time I’m in there (which is multiple times a week.)

Who doesn’t love a protein bar with an afternoon pick-me-up latte? ❤️ 
CVS Pharmacy has expanded their refrigerated and non-perishable healthy food and beverage selection by adding more than 250-fresh products to their shelves across the country. I always learn about new products when I visit CVS, and I always trust their brand selections.

(This cute mug was in their fall aisle. If you need any last-minute gifts, you’ll be able to find all kinds of cute little household items!)

CVS Pharmacy carefully curated a selection of national and niche better-for-you brands to feature in different Trend Zone displays around the store. These zones help showcase healthy brands that make healthier eating on-the-go convenient and more affordable. If you haven’t tried the Gold Emblem Abound dried banana chips yet…you’re in for a real treat. I have been dipping them in peanut butter lately.

One of the products I love right now that can be found at CVS is the Hippeas organic vegan white cheddar chickpea puffs. I can’t believe these are a real thing. I added a handful to my chili last night, and now I want to run to the store right now and pick up ten more bags of these. If you are vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, paleo, or have food allergies, you’ll be able to find something to fit your lifestyle at CVS. They have healthier choices to fit almost any lifestyle.
Some favorite items you can look out for are:

I have to share a quick note: The Enjoy Life Caramel Blondie Bars are out of this world!!!!! Someone, please hide the bars from me. I’ve always been a fan of Enjoy Life products and it makes me happy to see them available in the CVS stores. They are allergy-friendly for those who have a hard time finding products to fit your needs.

All of the items in the photo above will be in included the giveaway! 💜
Remember when I said that living a healthy lifestyle is about balance? You can eat a slice of cake and have a salad too. I live by that motto, and I think it helps me continue to live a healthier lifestyle with no trouble. So let’s talk cookies!

Have you ever been invited to a party last-minute and felt obligated to bring something, or forgot that you were responsible for bringing food to a morning meeting? Well, CVS Pharmacy can come to the rescue in literally five minutes, and this easy idea is budget friendly.

All you need is four boxes of Gold Emblem Abound cookies made with real ingredients, a brown shopping bag, and a tray! For some reason, I think the crinkled up brown paper shopping bag adds more character to the tray. It’s the small things! Just spread the cookies out in rows, and you’re done! No baking, no mess to clean up, and you didn’t have to break the bank or run around in a grocery store for hours. You can bring this tray to work, a soccer game, a football party, a morning meeting, or set them on the table when friends stop by.

This is just one of the many ways that CVS can help make your lifestyle so much more convenient when it comes to just about anything!

    1. I think eating healthy and exercise go hand in hand so if I’m not eating well I’ll make an effort to exercise a little more and eating well usually follows.

    I want to try the Enjoy Life bars! I see you baking with the chocolate all the time and have yet to try them!

    – I think about what my end goal is health-wise, and remind myself that crappy decisions (food) makes me feel crappy, and therefore I stray away from bad decisions when I remind myself of those things!
    – The only CVS in my town is in Target, so it’s not an actual store. We do have a Walgreens, but it’s amazing the difference between the two. CVS has so many healthier options! When I am near a CVS I tend to pop in and grab a couple things since there isn’t one super close to me.

    One tip that helps me live a healthier lifestyle is making sure I eat a bowl of veggies with every meal. Even if it’s a pizza night, I like to steam up a side of broccoli and sprinkle some lemon pepper on top. I mostly go to CVS to stock up on vitamins and personal care items since they always seem to have great sales going on. Those chickpea puffs look AMAZING so I would love to try those!

    Fall products are my FAVORITE! Dipping banana chips into peanut butter?? GENIUS. Trying that out asap. And Hippeas are one of my absolute favorite snacks. We love taking them on plane trips with us too!
    My one tips about living a healthier lifestyle is to not STRESS about living a healthier lifestyle. Once you learn what foods will nourish your body and WHY, it becomes easier to naturally choose them. But there’s no point in freaking out if you binge out on a pile of fries or a whole cake every now and then. That’s life! If you develop the healthy lifestyle because it makes you feel good, it takes the pressure off.
    Haha well usually we go to CVS when we’re in Vegas since there’s aren’t any in Boulder, but it’s honestly really nice to be able to be in Vegas and still snag healthy snacks, which also saves us money!
    I’ve definitely been wanting to try the Square Organics bars!

    CVS is actually my weekly stop because they are the closest store to my house. I can’t have RX bars or Bear naked granola in my house without my 2 year old hiding them in her room and eating them! I love the sales they have and especially on their vitamins. They also deliver straight to my door when i have a crazy work week. I have seen the Bubly water but haven’t tried it yet.

    My go to tip for a healthy life is pretty boring but it would definitely have to be WATER 💦 just drink your water. Even on those days that your nutrition is not on point water can help you flush out your system and feel better the next day.

    One tip that helps me live a healthier lifestyle is to not be afraid to have that treat you want! Health is all about balance.
    I have a CVS two minutes from me so really I pop in whenever I need something – it’s so convenient for a quick snack, nail polish, even soap!
    I would really want to try the hippeas. I love anything with a crunch.. and what a fun way to switch up a snack!
    Hope I win this giveaway! Xox

    My healthy tip would be to always carry a water bottle with you. It helps me to keep drinking water not to mention less tempted to get something else when you already have something to drink and on hand.

    I usually go to cvs for the minute clinic or prescription pick up.

    The granola bites look yummy!

Cvs is right down the road and has become our one stop shop because they have so much to offer, including amazing prices.

    1. Balance! You inspired me to do intuitive eating it and it’s been the best change. I used to deprive myself of so many foods because they were “unhealthy”. I’m a lot happier and healthier now.

    3. The caramel blondie bars!!

    I always head to CVS for pharmacy items like cold meds, bandages, etc. but I have found I linger way longer than I used to because they have holiday/seasonal sections that I like to peruse and then I always get distracted by the snack aisles since I pass them on the way to the pharmacy section haha.

    I absolutely love this post on your blog! I work at a doctors office that is next to a CVS and I find myself there daily grabbing beverages to get me through the day and sometimes a quick breakfast or snack to get me through the day. I have noticed over time the change in their choices of snacks to a healthier option which has helped me to continue my healthy gluten free lifestyle while I am busy at work. I do admit I have over looked a few of these products you featured but Monday I am pretty sure I have some options I will have to give a try like the banana chips with my favorite Justin almond maple butter, and trying out the maple cream leaf cookies for a sweet treat! Being a New England girl in Maine I always go for everything Maple!

    Side note my healthy tip that helps me is focusing on making sure I take time everyday for self care wither that is reading a book before bed, getting yoga in before work, or just sitting back with a coffee. I always find some time to do something for me in my busy mom life I love.

    Hey tara!
    The cookies your eating in the cvs post aren’t gluten free. I thought you have been following a gluten free diet? Do you sometimes eat gluten? What happens if you eat gluten? I’m wondering if I should try and avoid gluten to see if I feel better? I am perfectly healthy but sometimes have low energy because I’m tired and have a stubborn 5-10 pounds I want to lose. I already had my thyroid checked and it wasn’t that. My MD didn’t have any suggestions…grrrrrrrr.

    I think it’s pretty cool that they’ve moved to encouraging folks to make healthy choices…but just wanted to make a suggestion for your next CVS post! I’m sure they sell reusable bags, and it would be great to see that featured in your post instead of the single use plastic!

    The places I’ve lived (Chicago and San Diego) have a bag tax when you don’t bring a reusable bag, and it definitely has worked – I would say the majority of people I see try to use their own bag. That’s a lot of waste saved!

    1. The thing that helps me the most is having my fridge and pantry full of healthy options! I’ll usually meal prep, but also try and have a healthy freezer meal for that night I want something different and am tempted to get fast food. The days when my fridge is empty, I usually make unhealthy choices.
    2. I haven’t been to CVS in awhile. I used to go for school snacks a lot! 😛
    3. I’m going to have to try the Hippeas puffs!!! And how adorable is that mug?!?!

    First, I wanted to say I love that chunky turtleneck sweater! I totally understand about hibernating during the somewhere. Now that it has gotten cooler here in Tucson, I am trying to spend as much time outside as possible. I know you’ve talked about RX bars a lot. I love the seasonal flavors – pumpkin spice and apple cinnamon. Both so good! This isn’t from this post, but I saw a couple posts ago you talked about the gluten free crackers Mary’s Gone Crackers. I think you got the jalapeno ones. I picked up a box of the chia and hemp ones and have been eating them with hummus. So good! I wasn’t able to find the jalapeno ones.

    1. Not keeping cereal in my house. I LOVE cereal, but if I buy it then I will eat the entire box within a couple days.
    2. Picking up my prescriptions. I always walk around looking at the products after I pick it up. I usually end up leaving with some snacks. Last time it was the Love Corn.
    3. As far as what I would like to try from CVS, those Enjoy Life Caramel Blondie Bars. Sound so yummy!

    Happy Friday girl!!1 This is such a fun post and you look so happy and gorgeous in the photos!!! I love how colorful they are.

    What is one tip that helps you live a healthier lifestyle? -> Drink a lot of water, plan meals out!! & always get some kind of workout in – even if it’s a walk around the neighborhood!
    What brings you into the CVS stores the most? Vitamins + supplements!
    What healthy product from today’s post would you like to try the most? Can I choose all of them? 😉 haha Top 2.. the RX Bar chocolate sea salt & the Biena chickpea snacks rockin’ ranch. Mmm sounds delicious.

    Have an amazing weekend! <3

    The one tip that helps me live a healthier lifestyle is writing all my workouts on a calendar after I do them. I like to see what I’ve accomplished and if I see I haven’t been very active over a few days, it motivates me to do something!

    The thing that brings me to CVS the most is the typical medicine and prescription pickup. I have hypothyroidism and allergies so am there at least once a month. It will be nice to look for snacks and that cute owl mug next time I’m there!

    The healthy item from cvs that I want to try the most are the blondies-they sound delicious!

    Love this! CVS saved me from overspending on a work trip because they had my chia seeds, califa farms almond milk, honey and of course all of the stuff to even make my chia pudding! Love the healthy options there these days!!

        Yes! Had the regular sized one available in CA and since my room had a Keurig I never paid for what would have been endless Starbucks trips!

    1. I try not to buy premade meals and food and so that way I can save money and also always know what ingredients are in my food!
    2. Usually toiletry items or meds!
    3. The Hippeas puffs look yummy!
    Thank you!

    1. Balance is KEY! I have T2 diabetes and have to really watch the amount of carbs I eat. I make sure to allow me to have at least one snack per week that may not have much nutritional value, but fits within my carb limit. It allows me to still enjoy the foods I liked before and keeps me from over-indulging.

    2. I unfortunately don’t have a CVS store near me, though rumor has it that we’ll be getting one soon! What draws me to want to go into a CVS store are the healthy foods they offer and it’s a smaller store so it’s not overwhelming compared to Walmart, Target, or other grocery stores.

    3. I have a hard time finding healthy pre-made products that I can eat (yay tree nut allergies!). It’s so awesome knowing that they have many choices that are allergy friendly! I really want to try the Nourish Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Bites, they look soooo good! (I can have peanuts, I’m only allergic to tree nuts 😀 )

    It helps to know that treating yourself isn’t the end of the world and actually helps me stay on track! Not depriving yourself. For CVS I just like the convenience of being able to grab anything I need since there’s such good variety. And I’m excited to try the Hippeas snacks and of course Rx bars!

      I think depriving yourself is the destruction of living a healthy lifestyle! You must try the Hippeas! I can’t believe how good they are!!

    1. Definitely drinking more water! I’ve been trying to make it a habit.
    2. Needing items quick on the go (snacks, toiletries, etc.)
    3. I would love to try the Bear Naked granola bites!

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    1. The health tip that has helps me live a healthier lifestyle is to focus on small sustainable habits. Focusing one area of my live that I’d like to improve and working on it little by little. I went from hating to workout to going to boot camp, spin, and yoga classes and running half marathons. It didn’t happen right away, but I’m at a great place now and genuinely enjoy the workouts that I do!

    2. I usually run into CVS to grab snacks for the movies or road trips. I love that there are so many healthier aleternatives now!

    3. I want to try the Biena Chickpea Snacks – Rockin’ Ranch. Yum!
