We have been so busy since the beginning of the school year. My older girls started an enrichment program one day a week (we homeschool) that is 20 minutes outside of town, PLUS we just finished up the fall soccer season. The last 8 weeks have been a blur and I am convinced we spent at least half of our waking hours in the van! Luckily, we have a great family van with a DVD player and I ALWAYS have snacks ready to go.
One of my very favorite snacks for the kids is peanut butter and something to dip in it. Although my little guy is allergic to peanuts we still let the older ones have it because it is a great source of protein and is very filling. The problem with this snack is that it has never been very practical for on-the-go type snacks. Recently Jif added a new snack to their line-up that makes snacking on the go convenient!
Jif To Go Dippers are personal sized servings of peanut butter or chocolate silk peanut butter with pretzel crisps. They come in small plastic “cups” that fit perfectly in any cup holder. As soon as we unpacked our Jif To Go Dippers my girls were begging me to try some, they even wanted to help take the pictures!
When I asked them what they thought of their new snack, here is what they said:
- “There is so much peanut butter! I can put a lot on my pretzels!”
- “The chocolate is my favorite!” and the other, “The regular is my favorite!”
- “I want to keep the cup!”
- “Can I have another one?”
Obviously they approve, and I do too! The portion size is right, and the price is right. A 3-pack if Jif To Go Dippers retails for $3.79, putting each snack at just over $1. I might also add that the plastic cup means that the pretzels don’t get smashed all to heck while they are rolling around in my purse/diaper bag! I also think they would make great trick-or-treat snacks. Bonus!
