One great choice we are recommending for your weekly swap are Happy Belly Deli Chewy Granola Bars.  They are made with choice ingredients that taste great and provide you with nutritious energy all day long.  These chewy granola bars were formulated with literally whole ingredients.  What do you mean, “Whole Ingredients”? Well many other granola bars on the market, deemed nutritious due to their “wholesome ingredients,” such as oats and nuts start our wholesome, but become less so after being processed.

Why This or That?


Would you choose this or that? That is the question.  We are setting out on a learning journey to find comparative everyday household products, foods and gifts that can be purchased from with in Colorado.  We are asking you to tune in each week to find out what THIS or THAT item will be highlighted. 

Created In Colorado would like to propose a challenge: Try to replace one household item with one that’s made in Colorado each week, or even once per month.  At first you might believe this might be challenging, but I will be providing you with some excellent comparable choices for you to choose from, so watch out, and tune in!

By the way, anything that is in ever in the THAT column is not under fire,  or disliked.  Its just not a favorite when compared to the much better THIS column.  So if you see me at the supermarket with a that in my basket, I am not a hypocrite! And I don't consider you one either. 

Just one item per week or even per month could make a difference in your local economy.  Especially if everyone participated.  So...share this, talk about it, what ever it takes, lets make a difference together. Look in our directories for other awesome local choices!!
