5 Easy Snack Ideas with Hershey’s Spreads

I have just found my new favorite snacking go to!!! Hershey’s Spreads! I’ll be honest, I never really jumped on the chocolate, hazelnut spread bandwagon… No particular reason I guess. Kayli, my sister, did and tried to convince me to try it but I just haven’t. That is until Crowdtap sent me a jar of the brand new Hershey’s Spread to sample.
Oh. My. Yum.

Hershey's Spread Sampling

I am in snacking heaven!!! After a couple weeks of trying several snack combinations I have narrowed them down to my five favorites.

First up, Hershey’s Spread and popcorn. Specifically kettle corn. It just so happened I had a bag from a Cowboy Christmas event we went to over Thanksgiving weekend. I thought, why not?! Turns out it is DELICIOUS!!! Try it. Really.

Pairing Hershey’s Spread with apple slices makes for a tasty treat as well! Just slice up your apple and dip into the chocolate spread. Easy, right!?

Who doesn’t love CHEESE!?!

I personally think life would be drab and unexciting without cheese. I got lucky and married a husband that feels the same way… so needless to say cheese is a necessity on our grocery list. When I received the Sargento Natural Cheese Vox Box from Influenster I was stoked!

Sargento Cheese Review 3

Inside the Vox Box were two coupons to try Sargento Cheese Sticks and an insulated Sargento Cheese travel koozi.

After having my baby girl a few months ago my doctor explained that nursing mothers need to take in extra calories, BUT to strive for good calories, aka NOT just junk. Cheese is a great snack food for those extra calories since it is a good source of protein and calcium. Would you look at that? Sargento Cheese Sticks even proclaim that message on their package, “A Natural Source of Protein & Calcium”. Snack time for the win!!!

For my first coupon I chose the Colby-Jack cheese sticks. In about a week the entire package was cleaned out! My husband and I both thought they tasted great. Have you ever noticed that some cheese sticks taste bland or funky… Not like REAL cheese. You can just tell that they are crazy over processed? Well Sargento Cheese Sticks are NOT like that. They taste just as yummy as the “real thing”!

Sargento Cheese Review

For years one of my favorite snack pairings has been cheese and a few ginger snap cookies. It’s something I learned from my Granny when I would visit her house after school as a kiddo and we would share a snack together. I was delighted to find that Sargento Cheese Sticks were an easy and convenient way to continue enjoying my favorite snack!

First of all, I save time not having to slice cheese, which is awesome! The cheese koozi is fun for taking cheese on the go and all I need is a little sandwich baggy of ginger snaps and I have a yummy snack for the road!

I can’t wait to use my other coupon to try a different flavor of Sargento Cheese Sticks! What flavor would you like to try? What is your favorite cheese stick pairing???

Quick Snack – Husband Style

I have googled, I have pinterested, I have looked everywhere for a quick and easy snack for the hubs.
He comes in every evening from work famished and then quickly escalates to grouchy if there’s not a quick snack on hand to hold him over until dinner. Sure there are some fun snack ideas for kids, for healthy eaters, but let’s be realistic… My husband is neither of those. 😉

So I am super excited to share with you my latest husband snack solution!

husband snack idea

That’s right peeps. Summer sausage and cheese. No, it’s not the healthiest of snacks, but it’s a yummy combination that’s easy to fix up and the husband (and me, if I’m being honest) loves it!

All you need is a stick of summer sausage (they’re popular at most grocery stores this time of year so they shouldn’t be hard to find, but they are normally by the pepperoni in the lunch meat section FYI), a chunk of your preferred cheese (we like sharp cheddar) and some sandwich baggies.

making a snack for husband

Now, the most difficult step… slice up the cheese and summer sausage. 😉
Your husband will thank you for this… it equals snack in hand when he walks in the door which then equals happy hubs.
Fill a baggy with three or four slices of cheese and sausage, then refrigerate.

See? All ready to go and next to my snacks in the fridge, no worries that the hubs will get my yogurt confused with his meat and cheese snack… haha.

What’s your favorite quick and easy snack??
