When I pick my two daughters up at school in the afternoon, the very first words I hear are, “I’m STARVING” which are shortly followed by, “I need a snack!” Just once, it would be nice to hear, “Hi Mom! I missed you today!” But, I am not holding my breath and choose to fight the hunger monster with a healthy snack at home.
More often than not, the kids beg for me to stop at a local ice cream parlor so I try my best to convince them that I have something equally as yummy at home. Fortunately, I have been armed with the new JELL-O Mix-Ins. This new line of pudding snacks are made with real milk and contain no artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup which immediately caught my attention. All six flavors feature tasty toppings and creamy pudding that, when mixed, create some of your all-time favorite dessert flavors – all in one convenient cup.
We were lucky enough to try all six flavors including German Chocolate, Turtle Sundae, Oreo Dirt Cup, Birthday Cake, Banana Caramel Pie and Strawberry Shortcake. My oldest loves anything banana flavored so she opted for the Banana Caramel Pie while my youngest went straight for the Oreo Dirt Cup (she’s a chocoholic like her Mama). The refrigerated pudding and topping come separated in the packaging, so I removed the foil while my girls loved dumping in the fun topping and stirring it up to create a delicious snack. From the looks of their completely empty containers, the JELL-O Mix-Ins were a hit! In fact, the next day, they couldn’t wait to get home to try the next two flavors. Once we tried all six flavors, the favorites were Turtle Sundae and Oreo Dirt Cup so it looks like I will be headed to the grocery to buy more soon!
