Skeeter Nut Free Snacks Review

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

DISCLOSURE: I received free samples of Skeeter Nut Free Snacks from Moms Meet to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

Between myself and my kids, we have a lot of allergies in our family. The most serious being the peanut allergy my oldest daughter and I have. For me, it's so bad that if I even smell peanuts, I start feeling sick. We usually carry Benadryl and Epi-pens with us.

With our allergies being so bad, we have to be careful about what we eat. We're big label readers and for the most part, we tend to stay away from baked goods and packaged snacks. Even if an item doesn't actually contain peanuts or tree nuts, you can't be entirely sure if there was any cross-contamination. It seems almost all the packages have the warnings on the side: "May contain trace amounts of x" or "Made on shared equipment with x."

So, I was pretty excited to try Skeeter Nut Free Snacks. They're completely peanut and tree nut free. They're also made from whole grains and natural ingredients, and don't contain any artificial preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, or trans fat.  Skeeter Nut Free Snacks are available in:
  • Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies
  • Cinnamon Grahams
  • Chocolate Grahams
  • Honey Grahams (coming soon)
  • Double Chocolate Mini Cookies (coming soon)
  • Shortbread Mini Cookies (coming soon)
 The Mini Cookies are round and the Grahams are super cute and shaped like squirrels.

For our sampling, I was sent 2 multi-pack boxes of the Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies, 2 multi-pack boxes of the Grahams and single-serve bags of the Cinnamon Grahams, as well as coupons and a sign to let guests know where they could buy Skeeter Nut Free Snacks.

I brought the snacks to my niece's 2nd birthday party. After all the main birthday party activities, I did my little spiel about the snacks and let everyone try them. The majority of the guests preferred the Chocolate Chip Mini Cookies and the Honey Grahams.

I liked all of them. They tasted just like other brands of grahams and cookies. It's nice knowing that my kids with allergies wouldn't be left out or feel like they were missing out on snacks. These tasted great!

Overall, everyone liked them. They liked that they were made with whole grains and thought they would be good for eating on the go. I will definitely be picking up some to pack in my kids' lunches this fall!
