I’m not sure how your shopping list goes, but mine is usually something like this:
-More Goldfish Crackers
-All Varieties of Goldfish Cracker
-Don’t forget the Goldfish crackers Sara!!
Okay, not really.. One reminder is enough for me, but I usually make sure we don’t run out of Goldfish Crackers. Now, it’s kind of silly, but I don’t buy the BIG boxes of ’em. I know, I know, it would make sense if I did, but 1. I don’t have room for a big box like that in my cupboards (yes we live in an old house where there is no pantry) 2. They seem more fresh out of the smaller bags and 3. I really like to buy different kinds all at once.
I still remember a sweet friend of Zach’s back in Memphis would rummage through my pantry (yes, back then I had a HUGE walk-in pantry) because he liked those, “sugar coated goldfish.” He didn’t know how to explain it, but they are the Flavor Blasted kind that his Momma didn’t seem to like or buy (no offense Christina, but C’MON! Those are the best!!) Anyway, we are a home of goldfish eaters… Flavor Blasted being our FAVO and the pretzel being our second FAVO.
You wouldn’t believe my reaction when I saw a cute purple and orange bag at the grocery store the other day. They are called Goldfish Mix Up Adventures. It’s a bag with mixed flavors. So, far I’ve only seen the Pretzel and Extra Cheesy Flavor Blasted Mix, but HEY! That’s alright with me because we love those two. Seriously though, we bought the bag and I wasn’t surprised when my kids raved about them!
This is such a great concept that Pepperidge Farm has come across and I was so thoroughly excited about it that I came home and googled the product and found this:
“We know that when it comes to snacking, kids love variety, and parents have told us they often mix up different flavors of Goldfish crackers for their kids at home,” said Michael Simon, vice-president/general manager of the snacks division and Pepperidge Farm. “In an effort to continue to provide kids and moms with convenient, fun, wholesome snacks, we decided to combine two of our great Goldfish flavors … into one fun, easy, tasty snack.”
Michael Simon, I think you’re my new favorite person of the day! I’d hug you if I could! I didn’t find much more information about this great product online…not even a good picture… so I thought I’d throw out a review for all my sweet Momma’s who might be interested.
Taste: Wonderfully tasty! You get the pretzel cheesiness in one bite and the salty/cheese taste in the next.
Originality: We’ve been mixing flavor since I can remember so this isn’t a new concept for this Momma, but it’s very new for the usual snacks on the grocery shelf. Hats off to Pepperidge Farm!
Functionality: This is a great snack that can be taken on the go without sacrificing the the taste. Throw the bag in your diaper bag or purse and you’re good to go!
Kids: Approve, they love ’em!
Momma: Approves over and over!
