Like all children, my kids love watching movies.  We always have my nephews and cousins over at our house and around 7:00 pm I hear the magic words: “Can we watch a movie?”  The answer is usually yes, but one of the things I hate about family movie night is the sprinkling of popcorn that ends up all over my living room.  So, I was more than happy when I received a cute and healthy alternative in the mail. Bolthouse Farms Kids Carrot meets Ranch snack was a hit at our extended family movie night.  Both my nephew and middle son loved the snack and loved shaking up their tidy little bag to make sure each fresh carrot was lightly-coated with the all-natural ranch seasoning.  And, I loved the lack of clean-up that came afterwards.

This new line of healthy snacks can be found in any Giant Eagle produce section.  Just like all Bolthouse Farms Kids snacks, our crunchy carrots contained no added preservatives, high-fructose corn syrup, or artificial flavors. Plus, carrots aren’t all Bolthouse Farm Kids has to offer. Check these out!

KIDS_BEV_SB_LORESYup! In addition to our carrots meeting ranch, the Veggie Snackers also come in Carrots meet Chili Lime.  Also new from Bolthouse Farms™:

  • Kid-size, 90-calorie strawberry-banana and peach-mango smoothies
  • Squeezable fruit tubes in Mango Meets Banana & Pineapple, Strawberry Meets Banana, and Blueberry Meets Raspberry that can be served chilled or frozen.

And let me tell you sistahs, these snacks are tasty.  I have to admit that out of the two kid-size smoothies Bolthouse sent us, one of them ended up in my belly. Bolthouse Farms™ smoothies and juices are a regular on our grocery list, so I couldn’t resist when we got our little smoothies in the mail.
