Lunchables Jr Review

Wednesday, September 25, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received two packages of Lunchables Jr from Crowdtap to try and review.

My kids love to snack.  It's like they're ALWAYS hungry.  They're always asking for something to eat.  One of the first phrases my youngest son learned to say was "My hungry."

My husband and I almost always pack snacks for the kids whenever we go on a car trip because one (or all) of our kids is inevitably going to get hungry.  We usually pack snacks in little baggies and put them in a cooler or a plastic shopping bag.  The snacks we pack are usually the same few things: raisins, cereal, Goldfish crackers (or something similar), grapes and applesauce pouches.

Now, Lunchables has come out with a new line of snacks that combines some of these kid favorites into cute little packages that you can take with you on-the-go.  They come in four different varieties with cute names and are currently available exclusively at Walmart:
  • Ants On A Log - Peanut Butter, Sun-Maid Raisins, Honey Graham Sticks
  • Teddy Bear Picnic - Peanut Butter, Dried Apple Pieces, Teddy Grahams Honey Graham Snacks
  • Very Beary Crunch - Ritz Bits Cheese Cracker Sandwiches, Strawberry Flavored Dried Apple Pieces, Teddy Grahams Honey Graham Snacks
  • Blueberry Bonanza - Cheez-It Baked Snack Crackers, Blueberry Flavored Dried Apple Pieces, Mini Nilla Wafers
I received a sample of the "Ants On A Log" and "Very Beary Crunch" to try.

I only had about two weeks between the time I received the sampling kit and when I needed to send a report in, so I wasn't able to set up a playdate for my three year old and his friend.  But, I did have my three older kids try the Lunchables Jr.  The snack is targeted for kids age 3 and up and my kids -- ages 3, 6, and 9 -- all enjoyed them.

They even made faces out of the snacks:

Because I have one child with a severe peanut allergy, I didn't let any of the kids eat the peanut butter.  After eating the Lunchables Jr, the kids asked if we could buy more.  They really liked the snacks and wanted to try the other varieties.

I wish, though, the Lunchables Jr were available in more stores.  They're currently only available at Walmart (in the baby aisle).  I rarely shop at Walmart.  In fact, I haven't been there in over a year.  And I probably won't make the trip to Walmart, just to buy these snacks.  I also wish the dried apple pieces were a little bigger.  It would be easier for my preschooler to eat them and less messy.  That being said, if we happen to be at Walmart and are looking to buy the kids snacks, then I would definitely pick up more!  They would be great to pack with us on a road trip or to the playground or really anywhere I would normally pack snacks.
