Back-To-School with Harvest Snaps {Review} #lunchspiration

tiarastantrums

I have never come across a potato chip that I have not loved to devour. It's true, I love chips, any kind, any shape, any taste. The crunchier the better. However, I am no longer a young girl who keeps her figure and I have to watch what I eat, and that means no more chips! But I still have the need for something crunchy and tasty. Harvest Snaps are my new found love of crunchy and deliciousness!

Guess who else loves and adores chips? My son! But, as a young tween, I can't allow him to have all those preservatives and salt that come in a bag of chips. Back-To-School with Harvest Snaps is our new discovery. I received a number of bags of Harvest Chips to sample and I am so excited to share the flavors with you all! My favorite flavor is Lightly Salted. They give me the perfect amount of salt and crunch in each bite.

My son, who is a very picky eater, likes these too! If you have a picky child, Harvest Snaps could be your perfect treat to hand over to them. I pack a bag full of these for my son or his school lunches AND I put a bag in his locker for a grab and go snack when switching between classes. If you tweens are like mine, they eat all day long and the long hours at school are leaving my son ravenous. Placing a bag of his favorite Harvest Snaps in his locker to snack on all day is great and really helping him make it through the day.

Harvest Snaps snacks

My husband, who recently lost over 50 pounds is over the moon about Harvest Snaps as these are a healthy alternative to his prior poor-late-night-eating-habits. He can happily munch away on Harvest Snaps. He loves Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps Wasabi Ranch and Harvest Snaps Snapea Crisps Black Pepper. These snacks are a baked flavored green pea crisp and a perfect snack for him before or after his workouts with his personal trainer . . . got to keep those pounds off.

My daughters like a salad at lunch and I recently took the last  bits of the bag of Caesar Harvest Snacks Snappea Crisps and topped their salads as I was out of croutons. PERFECTION! They loved them and asked for more! These delicious green pea crisps are non-gmo, gluten-free, high in fiber and offer my girls a higher-protein snack for their growing bodies. I personally love the Lentil Snaps Tomato Basil on my salads. Delish!

This post is brought to you by Orkin and PartnersHub. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Orkin recently came out with an amazing app. The Orkin “Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake” App. What is your favorite myth about bugs? Did you know you could tell how old a ladybug is by the number of spots it has? Totally a myth! All creepy crawlers are bugs, right? Not even close! Ticks, flies and spiders are NOT bugs! They are insects!

It's a spider, not an insect

It has eight legs instead of six

and it's relative is a tick!

You’ve heard the myths about bugs before. Do you know what’s fact and what’s fake?

“Daddy longlegs are poisonous.”
“Mosquitoes prefer adults over children.”
“Ants can survive underwater.”

Take Orkin’s Scientific Fact or Scientific Fake™ Quiz to test your knowledge, and be sure to watch every clip for the scoop on these infamous bug myths.

disney on ice princesses and heroes

It's that time of year again when Disney on Ice skates into town!  Yes, Disney on Ice: Princesses and Heroes is coming to the United Center in Chicago from September 10th - 14th, 2014!  My kids really loved the Disney on Ice: 100 Years of Magic and Disney on Ice: Rockin' Ever After shows last winter.  The costumes, the music, the skating and the Walt Disney characters were all spectacular, and I would highly recommend the experience for children and adults of all ages.
