Share Your Goldfish Moments and Win!Thursday, February 16, 2012
The sun is shining.
The air is hot.
I decide to head out to the neighbourhood park with my then five year old daughter and two year old son before the clock reached high noon. I lather on the sunscreen and quickly fill some water bottles before rushing out the door. About two thirds of the way there, I realize my kids haven't had much in the way of a mid-morning snack. Panic ensues. Do I make the trek back home in the hopes that I might find something in the cupboards, dragging two reluctant kids who just want to play? Or do I make a slight detour to the nearest store, smile at the kids and tell them we're going shopping? Of course, they love shopping. So off we go.
Once we reach the little plaza, we make a bee-line towards the drugstore nestled in the corner where I knew I could find some snacks. As the kids begin to fuss, my heart rate begins to grow faster. I scan the aisles in the store and find their snack session. What should I buy that I know the kids would love? And then, as if it were a sign from above, a hint of gold catches my eye. Goldfish Made with Whole Grain. Yes! Baked with real cheese, whole grain? Perfect. I quickly pay for our snack and head out to the park where we sat at the picnic table enjoying our Goldfish moment in the shade. The kids are quiet, their bellies content and mom can breathe a sigh of relief. Breakdown averted.
Recently, there has been an addition to the Goldfish family - Goldfish Grahams! There are two yummy flavours that have been making a splash over the past few months: Chocolate and Honey. For those who love their tasty crackers, they can now enjoy a different kind of treat that is still similar to what you have to come to expect from Goldfish. In fact, Goldfish Grahams are:
- Contain no artificial colours or flavours
- Contain no preservatives
- Low in saturated fat with zero trans fat
These new flavours will be the perfect snack for kids, especially if they love honey and chocolate as much as my own two kids. They are great to have on hand if you travel a lot like me. I tend to procrastinate and leave packing to the last minute, which means I am usually in a rush to head out the door. Sometimes I just need something quick to have in the car while we are on the road to my parents' place. I have a feeling the chocolate Goldfish Grahams will become quite popular in our home.
