UPDATE: THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED
The WINNER drawn by random.org is:
Let's talk snacking during the holiday season shall we.
So, what do we snack on at our house?
I'm not going to pretend that I don't like Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark or those delicious Dark Peppermint Lindor Truffles, cause really, that once a year when they come out, I live for that. But those snacks, I'm normally inhaling tasting whilst hiding in the laundry room pretending to wash clothes, sitting on the kitchen floor while the kids aren't looking "cleaning out the fridge or cabinets" or hiding snacks under the side table next to the couch while the kids are distracted in the other room. Surely I can't be the only one who does this. And no I'm not setting the greatest example for the kids, but hey, they don't catch me … most of the time.
To them though, this is the best snack EVER
You got it, popcorn. We ALWAYS have popcorn in the house. The kids love it. It's perfect for movie nights, snacks after school, snack-cups for holiday and birthday parties, and for putting into little bags to take on road trips.
So what are your kids favorite snacks, and what do you snack on during the holidays?
Join me tonight to discuss. I'll be hanging about on #gno (on twitter) from 6pm PST as one of the panelists for the Orville Redenbacher's Healthy Snacking during the Holiday Season twitter party.
Come and share your healthy holiday snacking tips.
Here's a little trivia for you. Did you know that Orville Redenbacher's Natural Lime and Salt popcorn was listed on Health.com as one of America's healthiest food buys.
