When I wake up in the morning and the alarm gives out a warning and I don't think I ever make it on time...
Oh yeah, you know that song. Or did I totally just date myself there? I'm old, I know. Anyway, summer is ending, the days are getting shorter and it's that time of year again...back-to-school! As if you could possibly ignore all the adorable "first day of ____ grade" photos on your Facebook feed and the smell of freshly sharpened #2 pencils in the air. This year I get to officially join in on all the fun because Mac will be attending 3-day a week (half-day) preschool! Yes, I will cry. Again.
As you also may know, I'm really excited to be a part of an amazing group of mama-bloggers that get to review fun products and serve as "Product Scouts" for the website/blog Savvy Sassy Moms. This program is new, but growing quickly because it's been such a big hit. All the Scouts with school-aged kids received this amazing Back-To-School Scout Box with all kinds of awesome products to try out and review on our blogs! We're also hosting some really fun giveaways where you could win some of these products, the entire B2S Scout Box or the ultimate #2Cool4School prize package! If you're interested, head over to the Savvy Sassy Moms website for all the details and to sign up! And stay tuned here for reviews on all the products included in this awesome box coming over the next couple weeks!
When we opened our Back-To-School Scout Box, the very first thing the kids went for were the snacks, of course. I'm googly-eyed over the Sharpies, labels and notepads; meanwhile, the kids are ripping into the box of pouches and stuffing their little faces with the Jammy Sammy bars. I had to confiscate them immediately just so I'd have something to photograph. And actually, if I'm being honest here, it took me a couple days to get my act together and get pictures taken and by that point I had to order more Jammy Sammy sandwich things on Amazon because little Miss Mimmy here ate the whole box. Apparently I forgot to put them out of sight and she screamed bloody murder our nanny, daddy and grandma all gave her one. Obviously, Mim's a BIG fan. Once I received our replacement order (a whole case!), I let her have one of each for an after-nap snack and she went to town!
Even though Mim's not the one going back-to-school, she was thrilled to be a part of the Plum Organics review. She ate that Mash-Up so fast and squealed in delight when she saw the Jammy Sammy bars. These may just be her favorite thing ever. They're the perfect snack size for throwing in a lunch box, diaper bag, glove box or even your purse (for yourself). I will admit that I had one on my way home from the office the other day and it was delicious and much more filling than I expected it to be.
At one point she was sitting in a pile of crumbs and playing with her spilled Mash-Up and I had the nerve(!!) to try to move her, which resulted in that scream-cry above. I think she thought I was going to take her Sammy Jammy away. :) She has trust issues (I blame Mac).
So yeah, we're BIG fans. Six thumbs up from all of us on both the Mash-Ups and Jammy Sammy bars. Plum Organics for the win!
Have you tried either of these?
What's your favorite on the go snack for kids?
