My second choice is Little Kernel mini popcorn. These come in fun flavors like Truffle Sea Salt, Sweet and Salty, Pink Himalyan Salt and more. I was curious about the flavors, and ended up really, really loving them. They have a White Cheddar I'm on the look out for to try next!! These are all-natural and popped in Olive Oil.
The best thing about them, besides the scrumdiliuptious flavor, is their size. These are mini kernels, so they're much easier for the kids to eat. These are definitely worth a try, and a perfect alternative to candy for the Easter Baskets. I highly suspect these will become a favorite household snack for any time in the year.
Anything Welch's is always a good choice, and they've done it again by creating Easter-themed fruit snacks. This is by far my favorite brand for these types of snacks because they pop with fruit flavor, they're not too gummy, and they're easy to take along with you wherever you go. My son takes one to school almost every day for his classroom snack. These are also great to put in Easter baskets (of course), to send to day care or school, or to keep on hand for an afterschool snack or a special treat. You might also want to leave these out on the counter instead of tucking them away in the cupboard because they're a great way to add a bit of Easter festivity to any room (those packages!! so cute).
Finally, I had to include the Cascade Ice Drinks. My 9-year-old tells me all of the time that he likes these way better than soda (hurrah), and he always misses them if they are not in the house. Again, this is a flavored water type of drink, but this one is different than the Aqua Balls because it has carbonation. I like these because they mix flavors, which does make for a nice treat. Every single one I have tried has been light, refreshing and delicious. These are nice and tall, but skinny too, so they make for a great base in the Easter Baskets to put in the back...and then you can prop other items up against them. We usually keep these on hand for little man, but guests are always intrigued and opt to try them too.
So far, everyone who has tried them here, has loved them, and I can totally see why. Great flavor, and no junk? Yep, that's a good deal for any day, but especially for Easter when kids tend to get candy and sugar-filled treat overload.
Take a look around most any grocery or super store and you're very likely to find any of the products mentioned above. We're striving for a good balance of treats (meaning tasty, but healthier choices included to balance out the sugar) for our Easter Baskets this year, and these options are all tops in our book.
Have you tried any of the above?
Would you be inclined to include any in your Easter baskets this year?
