It is no joke, “You’re not you when you’re hungry“! I can speak from personal experience that when I am running errands, finishing up housework, and then heading up to school to get the kids that sometimes I feel my energy being depleted.
Having a little snack on hand can definitely be the difference between a grouchy Mom struggling to get through the afternoon, versus an upbeat and HAPPY MOM.
Of course it is important to have affordable snacks that are easy to fit in my purse, so this past week I paid a visit to my local Dollar General to pick up 2 varieties of SNICKERS® bars.
These packages included Peanut Butter squares, and SNICKERS® Almond, and were located right in the candy aisle near the grocery section of the store.
The next day, I put my Peanut Butter Squares to use when my son and I were heading out for bowling night. In addition, I snacked on the SNICKERS® Almond variety while driving over to a family reunion.
I also got creative with my bars, and if you like sweet and salty snacks here is a fun tropical inspired recipe made with SNICKERS®.
Tropical Chocolate Trail Mix
1 Cup of Salted Pretzels
1/2 Cup of Dried Bananas
4 Tbsp of Flake Coconut
4 Fun Size SNICKERS® Almond Bars
Place the SNICKERS® Almond bars in the fridge for 15 minutes to harden. Then cut them into 8 pieces each. Next, combine all the ingredients in an air tight container and enjoy. Makes around 2 servings.
Where would you take your SNICKERS® bars? What recipes could you incorporate the SNICKERS® Almond Bars into?
