2 New Healthy Back to School (or Anytime) Snacks!

Maybe by now you’ve had your fill of the dutiful back to school snack ideas posts, but I actually have a two new products I want to share with you, and I’m all about killing two birds with one stone. SO. Here are my two new favorite healthy snacks!

Wholly Guacamole

The first one is loooong overdue. The lovely folks at Wholly Guacamole sent me this generous gift package months ago. I know. Bad blogger. We really truly loved it — all of it. In fact, I have about one package left.

I love guacamole, and for some reason my stomach can’t handle the guac I make, but I do just fine with Wholly Guacamole. And it’s a lot quicker and easier too!! We particularly loved their snack-sized packages. My kids took them to school in their lunch boxes. (Yeah, when I said it was MONTHS ago when I received that box, I wasn’t kidding!!)

Our favorite is the Classic Guac.

Each box contains two vacuum packed packages, which keeps it super fresh. Rather than chemical preservatives, they use High Pressure Processing (HPP) Technology to produce a 100% all natural, fresh tasting product.

It really does resemble homemade guacamole. It’s not as chunky as I like it, but the flavor is fantastic. For a packaged product, I give it an A+.

The salsa is tasty too, and it definitely has the fresh salsa consistency that I miss with most jarred salsa.

Around here, I can find it at Giant, Acme, Wegmans and even Wal-Mart. Check their site for locations in your area. Thank you, Wholly Guacamole, for letting me enjoy guacamole again!!!!!!!!!

G.H. Cretors Popped Corn

Who doesn’t love popcorn, right? Well, evidently, Great Grandpa Cretors invented the popcorn machine back in 1885, and five generations later, G.H. Cretors’ popocorn is light, fluffy, crispy and fresh tasting. It is probably consistently the best packaged popcorn I’ve ever tasted. Their products are all natural, GMO and gluten free as well as kosher. They sent me a box with one full sized bag of each variety — Caramel, Cheese, Caramel Nut Crunch, Cheese, and Kettle Corn.

Our favorite was the Just the Cheese followed closely by the Just the Caramel.

GH Cretors Just the Cheese

I didn’t have time to take photos of each variety, as we devoured them so quickly! This popcorn can be found on and at Whole Foods and Fresh Market.

Both of these products are definitely going to be a staple in my shopping cart from now on.

What are you snacking on lately??

  1. Um, the food posts need to be giveaway posts. You get me all hungry and then leave me hanging. 😉 These seem to be extremely delicious snack ideas! Thanks for the info. My husband loves guacamole and I have seen the Wholly brand, but never have been brave enough to spend the money on it because I was worried it wouldn’t be worth it. Now I know what to buy him! Thanks.
