Del Monte Fruit Bursts - A Squeezable Snack!

 “The Del Monte products, information, and gift pack, have been provided by Del Monte.”


I'm constantly looking for new snacks to give my kiddos. If you have kids, you probably know what I mean when I say my kids are always hungry! It never ends folks, I'm serious. 

Typically, it's a huge struggle to distract the little ones from all the sugary sweets that they crave. However, every once in awhile I'll discover a delicious new snack that is appealing to them and to me. 

Enter Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers! Recently, I had the pleasure of giving these squeezable snacks a test drive and these little pouches have helped my family turn a corner in the snacking department! 

My two little ones love the Del Monte Fruit Burst Squeezers; the pouches are "just their size" and let's face it - kids love when they can squeeze or slurp anything. The favorite flavors in my house were strawberry and peach mango but they were all delicious. With five tasty flavors, I'm sure you could find one that you love too!

Win Money for College & a Trip to NYC w/the Jif Most Creative Sandwich Contest #MC

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Jif. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”

Do you ever just get a craving for a good sandwich? I do. I have a favorite from a chain restaurant that has bacon, guacamole, and sprouts on top of turkey all stuffed into a croissant. Gosh, it's good. Sometimes, I crave a peanut butter and banana sandwich...don't knock it til you try it folks. My kiddos - they like chocolate peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. I can't speak for that combination myself but it's their favorite! 

Currently, Jif is running their Most Creative Sandwich Contest and they are challenging families across the country to create an original sandwich recipe that includes two tablespoons of your favorite Jif products! Parents with children ages 6-12 can submit their original sandwich for a chance to win a $25,000 college fund and a trip to New York City! Hello - that's awesome! Check out this Nutty BBQ Chicken Quesadilla that was a finalist from last year! 


Yea, those quesadillas look delicious! So grab your kids and put on their creative chef hats and let them get to work in the kitchen. Head on over and enter their recipe before the contest ends on 11/8. Don't forget to read the entry rules
