Nairn’s Oat Cookies & Crackers Now Available in Canada & CONTEST!

Nairn's Oat Cookies & Crackers!
If you've been reading recently, chances are good that your mouth has been watering and you've gone straight into snacking mode.  Now with the kids and grandkids back in school, snacks are definitely top of mind, especially when they come home famished!
Greek Yogurt, Strawberries & Nairn's Crackers
My own kids get so hungry after school, that I bring a mini picnic basket to tide them over until we make it home.  Many a day, our snack basket also feeds the kids' friends, en route to our home for a playdate!
Hummus, Veggies & Nairn's Crackers
What do I usually pack in my mini picnic basket?  Fruit, veggies, and crackers and cheese always satiate the kids' hunger and provide good nutrition until dinner.
Berries, Nut Butter and Nairn's Crackers
My kids' school is nut-free, so I save peanut butter (and anything that looks like peanut butter) for our time at home.
Salsa, Sandwich Meat and Nairn's Crackers
For between meal kid snacks, I find that crackers are not as heavy as sandwich bread.  It's easy to pair chicken or turkey breast sandwich meat with crackers, and a tempting dip like salsa for an added zing.  This is also an easy lunch for a finicky child, like my eldest, who recently decided to eat a lighter school lunch each day.
Nairn's Cheese Flavoured Crackers! {Drool}
I save "treat food" like cookies until after dinner, to keep their appetites alive.  Look at this tempting choice from Nairn's, below!  Did you spy chocolate?
Nairn's Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies! {Faint}
Have you heard of or tasted Nairn's Scottish Oat Crackers and Cookies?  The company has been around since 1896!  The cookies are available in Dark Chocolate, Stem Ginger, and Mixed Berry flavours.  And the crackers come in Cheese, Organic Oats, or Roughly Milled Oats varieties.  
All of these Nairn's products are made from wheat-free recipes with whole grain oats. They are high in fibre, naturally energizing to keep you or the kids going throughout the day, and allow you to switch a refined grain for a whole grain.

Take a look at these healthier Scottish Organic Oat snack crackers, which are great for families at home or on the go!
  • Organic whole grain oats (89%)
  • A source of fiber
  • Wheat-free
  • Zero trans- or hydrogenated fats
  • No added sugar, GM ingredients, artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
Where to Buy? 
Nairn’s Oat Cookies and Crackers are available at major grocery stores across Canada, including Loblaws, London Drugs, Sobeys, Metro, Foodland, Longo’s, Highland Farms, Whole Foods Market, Overwaitea, and independent health food stores.
Nairn's All Dressed Up in Guacamole!

WARNING: New Reese Peanut Butter Chocolate Spreads Are Awesome & CONTEST!

Stop reading right now...unless you have immense will-power. If you are the kind of person who spoons peanut butter out of a jar, please close this web page! And if you've ever cleaned out a jar of chocolate hazelnut spread with either your fingers or a tiny spatula, know that fair warning has been given. Because your resolve is about to melt.

You're still here?  Don't say I didn't warn you!
I'd like to introduce you to NEW Reese peanut butter chocolate Spreads, based on the iconic Reese Peanut Butter Cups candy!  WARNING: if you don't respond well to temptation, I highly recommend that you keep the jar safely out of a place like Timbuktu.  

This combination of chocolate and peanut butter taste is highly addictive, and has been known to have parents and grandparents alike hiding the jar from the kids.  Some parents have been found eating new Reese Spreads clandestinely in places like the hall closet, laundry room and garage.  Sharing a jar of Reese Spreads is that hard.  
Don't Give Reese Spreads to Your Kids,
or THIS Will Happen!
How to Eat Reese Spreads:
  1. Dip fruit like strawberries, apples, bananas and grapes into Reese.
  2. Spread Reese on waffles, pancakes, or inside crepes.
  3. Try Reese Spreads with pretzels--or dip in carrot or celery sticks. 
  4. Use Reese in your baking: muffins, cookies, as a cake layer, etc.
  5. With a spoon...but a word of CAUTION, if you are trying to be moderate!

Reese Spreads are now available at major grocery and mass retail stores across Canada in 650g jars, with a suggested retail price of $6.79.  (In stores around the Toronto area, I have seen the jars priced lower.)
