Review: Horizon Organic Good & Go Snack Trays

Author's note:

So, Kroger's sends me free samples and asks that I give an honest review in exchange for more free samples and pretend internet points. A blog post is more internet points than other social media things and one of my hopes is that I can trick myself into blogging more about yarn as well. They sent  me free coffee once and I am easily plied by free coffee. Anyway, I'm going to be 100% honest about my reviews and I'll try not to be obnoxious about it.

Horizon Organic Good & Go Snack Trays
The girls are always asking me for snacks. They're always hungry because growing takes a lot of energy, whether you're 15 or 4. Both were enthusiastic about both the shelf-stable chocolate milk we received and the snack trays. They split the chocolate milk and each had a different flavor of snack tray. Everything was gone in about two seconds, which means they were either very hungry, the snacks were very tasty, or a combination of the two. The littlest said, "Oh boy, pretzels!" and promptly devoured hers. The big kid ate hers on the bus ride home and reported that "Yeah, it was pretty good," which is high praise from a teenager. I have no doubt as to the quality of the products and really like shelf-stable milk as an option to include with lunches.

As with any certified organic product, these tend to be more expensive than the conventional counterpart. While that's the only drawback, it tends to often be a prohibitive one when feeding two kids. They run about $2, more or less, and if I bought enough for five lunches for two kids, that's $20. My budget-minded self is more inclined to go about the pretzels-and-cheese sort of snack in a more economical way, slicing the cheese and measuring out the pretzels myself. You can't beat it for convenience and quality, though. I could see myself buying these more regularly, given a larger grocery budget.
