I’d like to thank Annie’s Homegrown for sponsoring the development of Ultimate Cheddar Lover’s Popcorn Snack Mix to highlight their excellent, feel-good products. My kids and I love this Ultimate Cheddar Lover’s Popcorn Snack Mix and we hope you do, too!
I don’t know if you know this, but I’m basically feeding three meals a day plus snacks to a small Viking horde. And since we homeschool, our back to school routine is a little different, I suppose. It mainly consists of re-instating the education schedule (book-work in the morning, projects in the afternoon), adding more trips to the library and more book shopping trips, and making sure I have plenty of brain-food available at all times. The reason for this is that I firmly believe you learn better when your stomach isn’t gnawing at itself and squawking to be filled. Since the snacks I keep around are available during school hours and after them, I want to be sure that I feel good about what my kids are nibbling.
I love to “run the shelf” at Target in the various sections of their grocery department and grab all the cheddar snacky items I can find. By this, I mean I sweep two each of several types of snacks, most usually Annie’s Organic White Cheddar Popcorn, Bunny Tail Puffs, Cheddar Bunnies, White Cheddar Bunnies, and Cheddar Snack Mix. I love that they use real cheese in their products and my kids appreciate the mega cheddar flavour. I know that each of these is excellent by themselves, but when mixed together in a giant mixing bowl, the sum is greater than each of its parts. See what I did there? A little math humour for your back-to-school pleasure.
I know my crew can put a world of hurt on a mixing bowl full of Ultimate Cheddar Lover’s Popcorn Snack Mix, but the beauty of this isn’t just the instant gratification that comes immediately after mixing it up; it’s that you can divide it into pre-portioned containers for lunches and snacks through the week, or move it into an air-tight canister to have handy whenever your kids and their friends get hungry.
You know else what, folks? During the month of August, Target will partner with Annie’s to have a variety of Cartwheel offers and in store demos that will help you save on your favourite Annie’s goodies. Our family’s favourite is a toss-up between the always popular Cheddar Bunnies and the new Bunny Tails, which are not only fun to munch, but they’re also fun to share with our friends who need to eat gluten-free.
