Every year, for quite awhile now, I've talked about Welch's Fruit Snacks with a holiday theme to put in our Easter Baskets. This year, while I am certainly doing the same, I want to talk about the big egg packaging!! I love that it's a lot bigger than a traditional Easter Egg because that means we can use it as the 'prize egg' or the egg the kids turn in to get something bigger (I remember when a handful of pennies was such a huge delight!). Though the prizes have gotten more sophisticated in our house (my middle-schooler doesn't love pennies anymore, but the joy of finding eggs, especially if he is lucky enough to get the prize egg, is still a big deal). In years past, we have used a golden egg. I think it's time to switch things up a bit and use this Welch's Fruit Snack egg instead. Since we will not be socializing this year for the holiday, the egg hunt at home will be even more special because other activities outside of the house will not be happening (and if they were, we certainly wouldn't go because for this pandemic, I believe 'safe is better than sorry' applies in many ways).
This particular brand of fruit snacks is a staple in many homes, including ours. The flavor is great, the consistency isn't gummy, and the first ingredient is fruit. Kids love them, and it's better than including just candy in an Easter basket. In fact, for my oldest granddaughter who doesn't eat much sugar, it is the perfect alternative to candy and she prefers it every single time (she's going to love this big egg!).
