This month's edition of Wendy's Favorite Things is featuring a really fun Great Eight collection! There's everything from decadent treats...to healthy snacks...and even a duo of adult beverages perfect for any Summer get-together.
(1) Ticket Chocolate Dulce de Leche S'mores Kit. Summer is the perfect time for s'mores! They can be enjoyed during camping trips...or by a fire pit near the pool. Heck, they can even be enjoyed indoors in seconds by using your microwave. If you're a true s'mores lover like I am, you'll go crazy for this decadent gourmet s'mores kit from California-based chocolatier Ticket Chocolate. Each kit comes with everything you need to make s'mores for four people. I fell in love with Ticket's Peppermint S'mores Kit last Christmas, and now I'm totally hooked on the Dulce de Leche! The kit features homemade caramel swirl marshmallows, artisan baked honey graham crackers, and a salted caramel milk chocolate bar. The end result is gooey marshmallows and creamy chocolate sandwiched between slightly salty graham crackers. To buy this s'mores kit -- or any of Ticket's four flavors of s'mores kits -- simply visit their convenient online store.
(2) Edoughble Ready to Eat Cookie Dough. When you bake cookies, does half of the dough make it into your mouth instead of the oven? Cookie dough tastes great, but ingesting raw eggs isn't always a good idea. Enter Edoughble's delicious edible cookie dough!! This delicious edible dough is made in small batches, and it's made with the very best ingredients -- and no eggs or preservatives. No matter what kind of cookie you love, they've got a variety you'll love! My personal favorites are the Chocolate Chip Off the Old Block, and the colorful sprinkle-filled Birthday Bash. Edoughble cookie dough is shipped in . To purchase your favorite from their wide range of flavors -- including two vegan varieties -- check out their online store.
(3) Wild Garden Hummus Snack Box to Go. I'm always on the lookout for portable, healthy snacks and lunch items I can take to work to enjoy at my desk. One of the best items I've discovered this year is Wild Garden's convenient Hummus Snack Box to Go. Each kit contains a squeezable pouch of hummus and a range of crispy accompaniments. There are several varieties to choose from, but my personal favorite is the Roasted Garlic Hummus with Sea Salt Quinoa Chips. The portion size is filling, and it tastes great! Each snack box averages 200 calories, 8 grams of fat, and 4 grams fiber. I keep a box or two of these snack packs in my office drawer for a mid-morning snack -- and I sometimes add a piece of fruit and yogurt for a light desk lunch.

(4) Brewla Craft Ice Pops. Texas Summers are hot...and long. We're always on the lookout for new and tasty ways to stay cool. I recently tried Brewla's all-natural ice pops, and I really love them! Each frozen pop is made with brewed ingredients, including: tea, coffee, botanicals, fruit juices and purees, and hormone free organic milk. These bars taste great and are enhanced with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants to boot...win win! Brewla's flavors include Strawberry + Hibiscus Tea and Craft Brewed Root Beer Float. My personal favorite flavor is the Tropical Fruits + White Tea. Each bar contains no added sugar, and it's enhanced with electrolytes to help me stay hydrated! This bar contains just 30 fat-free calories, and it tastes great. To find Brewla's Craft Ice Pops near you, check out their online store locator.
