October through the end of December definitely feels like the busiest time of year for my family. Not only are the holidays busy, but we've got school, indoor soccer, scouts, and all other kinds of activities. I've learned that keeping the kids happy while we are on the go means I need to have snacks at the ready.
We have a 25-30 minute commute each way to school and I have learned that I have some very grouchy kids if I don't have a convenient, portable snack at the ready. Our other snacking emergencies usually occur at soccer practice or games. The kids are in different age groups so they have practices and games at different times. It totally wreaks havoc on our normal dinner routine. There's nothing worse than a hungry and tired little soccer player.
A few weeks ago, I was sent some Jif To Go Dippers to try out with my family. They have been a big hit with us! If you haven't seen them yet, they are a small cup of Jif that are packaged with pretzels so you can dip on the go. Jif To Go Dippers come in Creamy Peanut Butter with Pretzels or Chocolate Silk Peanut Butter Spread with Pretzels.
My son thought that the Chocolate Silk was his favorite while my husband preferred the classic Creamy Peanut Butter. I liked them both, but you can't get any more perfect than chocolate and peanut butter!
My son would eat a PBJ sandwich for breakfast, lunch, and dinner given the chance. So I'm not really surprised that he loved them. I just really loved how convenient and portable they were. I can easily throw a few in my purse and I don't have to worry about the pretzels getting crushed or something puncturing the cup of peanut butter. I also appreciate that the packaging was easy to open. I could send this off to school and feel confident that my son could open it on his own.
