Period cravings are strange.

Anyone who’s ever had a period knows how cravings happen during the days leading up to their period. Cravings are so diverse, too, that they can range from hankerings for half-dozen Krispy Kremes to entire tubs of Carmen’s Best. In my case, my cravings vary on each and every period. But it’s usually fondness for savory-sweet snacks. Sometimes I go for junk like Payless XL pancit canton, sometimes I devour chocolate bars. Whatever it is, it guarantees an extra 3 pounds after a week!

The new guilty pleasure

Local find Aurora’s Choice Nutsos come in different flavors, but they all do the same thing: Satisfy your craving. Love that I got two packs of these Nutsos via my Happy Days Club package. (#sponsored!)

Auroras Choice Choco Nutso

I simply love this locally made treat! While the high-protein Choco Nutso variant has a somewhat bittersweet taste, the Honey & Sea Salt flavor offers the ideal sweet-salty balance that I crave. The crunchy-chewy texture of every peanut complements the crunchiness of the honey and sea salt coating, as well.

Auroras Choice Honey and Sea Salt Nutso

It’s recommended for surfers, perhaps because it’s a perfect snack when laying on the beach. But I highly recommend this snack anytime, anywhere! 

5 out of 5 stars for me!

Addicting on its own!

I have to be honest here–I tried Aurora’s Choice Salted Caramel Spread with Sky Flakes, and it was a nice afternoon snack. Considered using it to top vanilla ice cream, but I had to go to the store to get one. So I decided against it.

Auroras Choice Caramel Spread

I tried the spread on its own and I had to stop myself from eating another spoonful because it was so sinfully sweet! My older brother tasted it, and ended up finishing the entire jar.

It has the consistency of condensed milk, but it has the flavor and color of my childhood favorite yema. I can imagine my period-stricken self quietly enjoying this at home. It’s just ridiculously good on its own!

5 out of 5 stars from me as well!

Final Thoughts

I can’t stress this enough: Support Local. If you can’t find Aurora’s Choice snacks in the supermarket, contact the manufacturers directly on Facebook.
