Here are some of our family’s favorite snacks. Some of these snacks are sugary and others salty…but bottom line, these snacks make our family happy. We don’t buy these snacks all the time…with the exception of the string cheese. Some of these snacks are harder to come by and we have to order them online, but I just wanted to share some of these delicious tasty treats!
So in no certain order…here they are:
#1: G.H. Cretors popcorn brand called “The Mix” with caramel and cheese popcorn. I will admit, I was suspicious of this mix at first. I love caramel popcorn but cheese with it? Well, I can tell you I am glad I tried it because it’s my family’s favorite popcorn mix! I have tried other caramel and cheese popcorn blends and they just don’t compare to this brand.
I have found the big bags of this mix from Costco and Sams club, and the small bags from Target. And of course you can order online. Try it…you won’t regret it…just maybe the calories;)
$3.29 for the small bag at Target. Click here
And I recently purchased a big bag at Sam’s Club for $6.48
#2 Hickory Farms Beef Summer Sausage.
Normally, I wait patiently until Christmas season to purchase these delicious summer sausages. I have found that most malls in the U.S. sell these summer sausages for about $10. I will tell you this may sound pricey, but this beef summer sausage truly is the best one out there. I am some what of a beef snob (grew up on a cattle ranch), and I have bought and compared different beef summer sausage brands and Hickory Farms is hands down the very best. Both my kids love these summer sausages too.
If you order online there is currently a 10% discount plus free shipping. You get 3 packages of beef summer sausages for $25.00. Click here to purchase.
#3 Philippine Brand Dried Mangos
Let me preface this tasty snack by saying I have never been a huge fan of dried fruit. However, when I tried this particular brand of dried mangos I was completely sold on them. I will warn you, there are many brands, but in my opinion they don’t hold a candle to the Philippine Brand of dried mangos. My husband served a two year LDS mission in the Philippines and he talks frequently about how amazing the mangos tasted there, he does not love the mangos here in the US now:) So if the mangos do actually come from the Philippines that may be why these dried mangos taste so good…I don’t know?! All I can say is that anyone I have offered these dried mangos to always asks where I buy them.
I first found these dried mangos at Costco but haven’t seen them there for a while. However, if you go online you can get a two-pack from Amazon for $7.99, Click here for details.
#4 Cache Valley String Cheese
I love all types of cheese. I always feel a bit better snacking on cheese versus candy or chocolate. Normally I am not too picky about the type of cheese I eat, but when it comes to string cheese Cache Valley is my very favorite! Even my young 4-year-old son can tell the difference and won’t eat any other type of string cheese unless it’s Cache Valley. I think the difference may be that there isn’t a strong after taste with the Cache Valley string cheese. Whatever it may be, we are constantly snacking on this tasty cheese at our house.
You can find Cache Valley String Cheese at Kroger stores, Wal-Mart and online. Here is a link to purchase.
#5 Coconut almonds with dark chocolate by Edward Marc
So I may have left the best for last! I love all these snacks but if I HAD to choose just one snack from this list, I would more than likely choose these coconut almonds. I will add, don’t let the dark chocolate fool you. I am not a huge dark chocolate fan, but on these coconut almonds….mmmm! This tasty treat reminds me a lot of an almond joy, but even better!
A secret to eating these tasty snacks is to stick them in your freezer and eat them cold. My friend told me she does this freezer trick and I tried it myself, and yep…sold!
I again, found this item at Costco originally, but you can also purchase them online through Amazon. Click here for purchasing details.
I hope you are intrigued by one or more of these tasty snacks. I will always be thinking of more to share with you, but I would also love to here YOUR favorite snacks and treats.
Hopefully your tastebuds will enjoy this post.
Until next time,
