There is some truth to the rumor that eating healthy can be so expensive. The truth comes when you don’t take a few minutes to search out the sales and coupons.
Or maybe you just don’t know the right places to look…
As I was wondering around the dollar store in search of some last minute party supplies (I throw awesome parties on only a $50 budget!), I started to notice that there were quiet a few options when it comes healthy snacks at the dollar store!
But would they even be worth a single dollar? Would they taste good? Could I get my family to eat them? Are they safe?
Don’t you think there is always a major uncertainty when it comes to buying food at any dollar store?
I decided to take on the challenge of becoming the taste tester in hopes of finding some affordable tasty and healthy snacks for the family.
With the enlisted help of my entire family, we have tried 11 healthy snacks from the dollar store and are sharing what we thought with you!
As a matter of information for you, I found all these products at our local 99cent store.

Dollar Store Taste Test Regulations
When picking out which products to taste test, I wanted to make sure that the products were more on the healthy side. For our family, that meant that we tried to avoid added sugar or anything fried.
As we reviewed each product there were FIVE points of inspection:
- Price comparison
- Expiration date
- Manufactured location
Which Dollar Store Products Passed the Taste Test?
Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel! It’s a lot of fun over there!
The most important inspection point for us was the taste! Nothing else matters if it doesn’t taste good and I all I can do to get my kids to eat is to physically shove it down their throats.
Don’t worry, I don’t do that! Come on!
The second most important qualification to pass our family taste test was to make sure that the $1 price was actually a good deal! Not everything at the dollar stores is a great deal!
So go on and take a look at the video above to find out which dollar store healthy snacks are worth a buck and pass our family taste test.
Thanks for stopping in and I will talk to you soon!
