Ritz Crackerfuls Are Happy Snacks
BlogHer asked me if I wanted to review a new snack, Ritz Crackerfuls and I jumped at the opportunity. Mostly because it is summer vacation and all my children want to do is snack. Constantly. They think that it is their god given right to have a multitude of snack choices available to them at all times.
It seems that every half hour they are coming inside looking for a snack. I have officially turned into an old crochety person who says things like, “Close the front door, do we live in a barn!” “Stop this in and out nonsense. Either come in, or go out.” and “You can’t possibly be hungry, you JUST ate.”
I try to mix their snack choices up a bit, processed foods mixed with whole foods, fruit, cheese, crackers, pretzels, cut up vegetables. Oh, who am I kidding with that last one. Cut up vegetables really only serve as a decoration and make me feel like a better parent.
All of this to say that when the box of Ritz Crackerfuls arrived the children swarmed me. Immediately I noticed the packaging. Instead of just being in a wrapper, each individual package has a sturdy cardboard sleeve. This is perfect for families like us that are constantly on the go. I can’t tell you how many times I have thrown other snacks into our bag only to pull a crushed mess when we arrive at our destination.
They tore opened the packages.
They began eating.
Thumbs up all around. Along with the question that lets you know they really liked it. “Can you get these for us again, Mom?”
And the answer to that is, if will keep you out of the house for an entire hour again then YES I will buy them. By the case even.
So tell me, what sort of snacks do you reach for to bridge the gap from lunch until dinner time? Do you have a certain time of day that you feel like you are crashing and need a snack? Or do you graze like my children?
