Looking for the crème de la crème from our assortment? Our customers have got you covered! For this year’s edition of Customer Picks, we’re going through the best-reviewed basics of 2019. From MLBB lipsticks to health-boosting supplements, these are the products that any beauty and wellness junkie would be lost without.
In the twelfth installment of this eighteen-part series, we’re talking about snacks. Fueling yourself is so important—we all need energy to get through the day, after all! While it’s convenient to reach for a pack of junk food when you start to feel hunger pangs, the type of ingredients you nourish yourself with matters. Snacks made with natural whole foods, with no preservatives or additives, tend to make us feel better from the inside out.

We believe that the best snacks are both yummy and good for you, and our customers seem to agree! Whether you’re looking for something to munch on between meals or while watching a show, we’ve got you covered. From nut butters, crunchy savory bites, and all sorts of chocolate-laden treats, here are 20 of our customers’ highly-rated snacks of 2019.

7Grains The Good Peanut Butter (400g), P240
Lalaine, 31: “At first, I was hesitant to buy this. I was used to having the sweet/sugary type of peanut butter bought at the grocery. But I am so glad that I tried this; it’s all natural, not too sweet. You’ll know that it’s made of all good ingredients. I’ll never go back to the typical peanut butter being sold at the supermarkets. This one even tastes better.”

Fineti Hazelnut Spread (200g), P75
Anne, 27: “Given its price point, this was a great dupe for Nutella when I first found it at my local grocery. I like that it’s not too sweet or too bitter for my personal preference. Texture is pretty much like the other chocolate spreads in the market. It’s smooth. A little runny when it’s hot, but firmer and more viscous at cooler temperatures.”

Fitnesse Granola Honey (300g), P199
Celine, 21: “This is certainly a go-to breakfast or snack for students like me, who sometimes don’t have time to eat—especially if you’re running late to class. I really love the taste. It’s sweet but you won’t easily get tired of it. Plus, it gives you the energy to start your day. Whether you add milk to it or eat it as it is (which is my favorite), trust me, it’s so good.”

Founding Farmers BBQ Roasted Edamame, P80
Elaine, 28: “These products are to die for. Edamame is such a rich source of protein, plus they taste so good! I am a vegan and so I always try to find great snacks and food items that can give out a lot of protein and important nutrients that my body needs. This right here is my favorite! They are highly addictive, too … you’ll end up munching everything in one sitting!”

Founding Farmers Salted Roasted Edamame, P80
Francesca, 23: “I love how the ‘plain salted’ flavor is just the perfect mix of ‘plain’ and ‘salty.’ It’s not TOO salty, but it’s just enough to make you want to keep getting more. Edamame is also a GREAT source of protein, iron, and calcium! One thing I also love is that the packaging is resealable, so you’re not pressured to have to finish everything in one sitting! Would super recommend if you’re a snacker but you’re trying to be healthy!”

The Superfood Grocer Coconola Vegan Granola Clusters Chocolate Crunch (200g), now on sale at P224 (limited time only)
Tina, 30: “I initially ordered two packs and after two weeks, ordered another two. Needless to say, I LOVE THIS. I’m a big snacker and I’m a chocoholic… but I need to control my sugar and eat healthier, especially since I work a desk job, almost 12 hours a day 5 times a week and have not had time to work out… So this is definitely heaven-sent. I find this such a perfect snack for when I need a pick-me-up. It isn’t chewy—like most granola clusters—but it isn’t too crunchy either. I find it’s the perfect chewy-crunchy ratio. And of course, the chocolate flavor does not fall short of full satisfaction. It’s also kind of salty.. so it really addresses all sorts of tastes and textures that a snacker needs. I also love that the clusters aren’t too big nor too small. They’re bite-sized! I eat these by themselves, as my office desk snack. A reward for each task successfully completed. I have had this as breakfast as well, with my greek yogurt—so good! I really highly recommend this to all my fellow chocoholics. Not only are you doing your body good, you’re also helping out local businesses.”

Hummingbird Strawberry Jam (25g), P59
Jamiya, 23: “I bought this product to test it out, and I really liked it! The strawberry jam is not too sweet and doesn’t taste like it has any artificial flavoring! Getting this size is really good if you just want to taste it first before getting the regular size. One jar this size is good for 2-3 slices of toast. Will definitely purchase the regular size!”

Lorenz Saltletts Brezel (150g), P72
Madel, 21: “I wasn’t expecting much from a pretzel, but this one definitely got me finishing the entire bag in one sitting! First, since it’s baked, it seems more healthy (unless you finish everything at once). Second, I like that it’s only salted so you really taste the smoky goodness. Overall I just loved it!!!”

Lorenz Sea Salt & Pepper Potato Chips (100g), P75
Jean: “I bought three variants/flavors of these potato chips (Balsamic Vinegar, Classic, and Sea salt & Pepper), and this is our ultimate favorite! You can really savor the saltiness and the peppery taste of this variant—not too overpowering, just seasoned right. Similar to Marks & Spencers’ sea salt potato chips, but at the fraction of the price. It is really worth hoarding! That’s why I keep buying this product here.”

Made by Maxine Extra Dark Cacao Almond Butter (225g), P315
DK, 29: “Never thought I’d find a healthy alternative to peanut butter that is actually YUMMY until I chanced upon Made by Maxi’s almond butter spreads at BeautyMNL. The Extra Dark Cacao is my favorite flavor of the bunch because the natural sweetness of almonds and the subtle caramel notes of coconut sugar go so well with the intense chocolaty bitterness of cacao nibs. IMO, it’s as deliciously nutty as commercial peanut butter without being too sweet, and the bits of almond and cacao nibs in the mixture give the spread a bit of a crunch. Be warned however that since this almond butter is all-natural, (1) the oils do separate from the mixture, so be sure to stir the contents of the jar first before indulging in a spoonful or two, and (2) the spread tends to dry up and harden 3-4 weeks after the jar’s been opened.”

Musli Crunchy Oat Cereal (Strawberries & Almonds), P149
Kris, 33: “Of all the variants of Musli Crunchy Oat Cereal, this Strawberries and Almond Variant is my favorite! It is so yummy and quick to prepare which is why this is my breakfast of choice when I don’t have much time in the mornings! I love the tangy flavor of the dehydrated strawberries and the texture that the almonds bring.”

Musli Chocolate Oat Biscuits (60g), P28
Erika, 24: “I tried this out of curiosity while I was browsing for chocolate-flavored snacks and boy, it was love at first bite! It’s just the right amount of sweetness, no ‘umay factor’ at all. Perfect guilt-free snack when you’re craving for chocolates. One pack is enough for breakfast since they’re filling anyway. I’d definitely recommend this to chocolate lovers who also want something healthy.”

Quaker Instant Oats (400g) + Free Microwavable Jar, P77
Anne, 27: “I had a lot of trouble with my metabolism growing up until I incorporated Quaker oats in my diet years back. I’ve been having it for breakfast ever since and it has helped me improve my metabolism. It’s such a miracle worker for me. Also love that it often comes with freebies like this jar!”

Rose’s Kitchen Cinnamon Peanut Butter (340g), P270
Kerstine, 28: “Since I’m in love with cinnamon, I immediately ordered this, and it didn’t disappoint. It has the right amount of sweetness and nutty-buttery taste, and the goodness of cinnamon adds more flavor to it. It is not too oily as well (I always mix this in my oatmeal for the extra yum and energy).”

Snack Box Roasted Cacao Nibs with Chia and Flaxseeds Brownie Crunch, P88

Try ninyo, sobrang worthy. Masarap siya. And nakakadagdag sa appetite na crispy tapos gusto mo nalang ubusin siya ng isang upuan.”

Take Root Champorado Granola, P150
Katey, 23: “I enjoyed having this as a snack in the office, and surprisingly, my officemates also enjoyed the taste! The texture is great, crunch is very good. I consider this a great substitute or alternative to processed snacks like chips or chocolates. The coco taste was sweet and even though I am not truly a fan of coco sugar, I enjoyed this! Highly recommended that you guys try this out too, you might find this better than your usual sweet tooth cravings!”

Take Root Kale Chips Vegan Cheeze Flavor, P220
Anne, 23: “I grew up fond of fruits and vegetables more than meat and junk food, so when BeautyMNL sent me a surprise package, I was so happy to find healthy snacks inside the bag, and this one is my favorite. It is cheese-flavored so it will suppress your craving for something salty, even if IT IS NOT SALTY AT ALL. I love the fact that you can sprinkle it on top of your rice or anywhere else, because this is actual dehydrated leaves so it will crumble no matter how careful the handling is. “

The Green Tummy Organic Dried Goji Berries (50g), P120
Adrienne, 30: “Instead of eating sugar or junk for snacks, I’ve diverted to other healthier options. This is a great snack since it is an excellent source for antioxidant and also improves immunity. I eat this alone, but most of the time, I mix it with nuts and dried fruits to create my own trail mix. It’s also great with overnight oats or smoothie bowls!”

Gingerbon Regular (20g), P12
Rica, 26: “This ginger candy is perfect to carry around for instant throat relief. It’s warm and relaxing, and I also like that it helps me relieve motion sickness and nausea. This trial pack is super affordable, ideal when you just want to see first if it will work for you. I’m glad I tried because it’s now a part of my ‘tita’ essentials kit!”
