With the new school year upon us, our family has been very busy getting the kids ready for the transition back to getting up early, doing their homework, and packing their lunches and snacks. The first two will usually cause some serious battles in our home but thanks to Kraft Foods the kids have no problems with packing their bags with delicious snacks.
We recently received an assortment of Kraft Food products as well as other useful items to help us stay organized throughout the school year.
CAPRI SUN Super V Fruit and Vegetable Juice Drink (Fruit Punch): CAPRI SUN Super V is a new refreshing fruit & vegetable juice drink that kids will enjoy and moms will feel good about serving. The new ready-to-drink beverage, which comes in the popular CAPRI SUN pouch, contains a combined serving of fruits and vegetables (3/4 from fruit juice and 1/4 from vegetable juice) and is a good source of fiber, offering a perfect blend of nutrition, great taste and “kid cool.”
When the kids first saw the packaging they were a little hesitant. “Vegetable juice?”, they said. However, just one sip and they were hooked. In fact, Kiana drank two pouches before I could stop her. My nephew was really excited to try it as well since he’s been seeing the commercials on television. He thought it tasted great, too. He said you can’t even tell that there are vegetables in there and that it tasted just like fruit punch.
LUNCHABLES with Smoothie: New Turkey and Cheddar Sub Sandwich with Chiquita® Strawberry Banana Smoothie and Double Stuf OREO cookies is the perfect first-day lunch time option that combines all of your kids’ favorites! You can also try the new Chicken Strips and Deep Dish Pizza options to add some variety to lunchtime! Also, look out for more exciting Lunchables news coming your way next month directly from the Lunchables team.
Now, what kid doesn’t love Lunchables? I know that mine are always begging me to buy them when I’m at the grocery store. They think it’s so cool to bring these little lunch trays to school. And now that Lunchables includes a Chiquita Strawberry Banana Smoothie I know I won’t hear the end of it. “Mommy, pleeease!” Oh well, Lunchables definitely makes it easier to pack their lunches especially on field trip days.
JELL-O with Mix-Ins Pudding Packs: Feed your family a snack you can feel good about with new JELL-O with Mix-Ins. Mix your favorite toppings into your favorite pudding flavors to create your new favorite dessert. Kids will love trying the six fun flavors like Strawberry Shortcake, OREO Dirt Cup, Birthday Cake, German Chocolate Cake, Turtle Sundae and Banana Caramel Pie. And you’ll love that they’re made with real milk.
Pudding packs are a great after school snack for the kids . . . and the perfect way to satisfy my sweet tooth in the middle of the afternoon.
CHIPS AHOY!: Whether it’s packed as a surprise lunchbox treat or with some milk after school— you’ll love CHIPS AHOY! Chewy Gooey Caramel and Chewy CHIPS AHOY! made with Reese’s ® Peanut Butter Cups. One, infused with a soft caramel inside, the other, a chewy treat packed with Reese’s ® Peanut Butter cup pieces.
When it comes to cookies, I usually prefer the crispy variety as opposed to the chewy ones. However, after trying these new Chips Ahoy cookies I may have to rethink my preference. Of course, I shouldn’t be surprised since Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups are my absolute favorite candy. Even my Mom and brother-in-law couldn’t get enough of them. And once the kids got their hands into the bag there was no stopping them. These cookies were yummy!
New! VELVEETA CHEESY SKILLETS Dinner Kits in Creamy Beef Stroganoff and Lasagna: Craft your family a quick, easy, molten and melty dinner made with the liquid gold of VELVEETA. Wield your skillet and one pound of ground beef to forge a feast of new Creamy Beef Stroganoff, with premium seasonings, curly ribbon pasta, and creamy VELVEETA cheese sauce. Or, forge VELVEETA CHEESY SKILLETS Lasagna by smiting together one pound of ground beef, lasagna noodles, red sauce and premium seasonings together with the liquid gold of VELVEETA.
I have to admit that I’ve never tried Velveeta dinner kits before (I usually use a different brand) but I knew Kiana would love it. Cheese is her favorite food and she can (and tries to) eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
So, if you’re in the middle of the back-to-school craziness let Kraft Foods help you make life a little easier . . . and tastier. Your family will thank you for it!
