It's the eternal parental problem. You're going drama practice, to a little league game, or even just to the park down the street. In your head, you know your kids are going to be asking for food exactly 2.4 seconds after you sit down. Apparently their stomach timers are synced to the timers in your muscles that control when you want to sit and relax for five minutes. But you can't fight it, you can only prepare for it. This is where your ability to choose the right snacks comes in.

Of course, as a parent, you've have to deal with this for years. There have been times where you picked the wrong snack (it melted in the bag), or you forgot the snack on the kitchen counter because it was hiding right next to your keys. I'm not judging, I've been there. This is why my family is always looking for a versatile snack that can go anywhere. After untold hours of searching, we might have found the snack that fits our needs. We have taken these to a local monument, amusement park, and even to my son's soccer game. They actually were perfect because we were able to hand them out to other hungry kids at the field as well. Kids at youth sporting events are actually kind of like ants. When they smell a tasty snack, they swarm you and there is no getting away from them. Sometimes I wasn't even sure they were there for the game, I think they sniffed out the snacks in their car while they drove by.

What is this magic snack you ask? You probably have to buy these snacks on the black market of the of the internet, right? They are actually right at your local grocery store. It's the Snyder's-Lance Snack Packs. So why are they the perfect snack-on-the-go? There are four reasons. There might actually be more than four, but we are parents here, and we probably don't have time to read more than four. In fact, only reading four will more than likely take 2-3 attempts trying to read this whole post with all of the interruptions, so let's just keep it simple.
1. You get a variety of chips in one handy bag.
So you can choose between a few different variety packs. Any of them with the Kettle Salt and Vinegar are just fine by me. What do they have in common? They all are sold in bag with a convenient carrying handle. Because Snyder's-Lance apparently knows that, besides the snack bag, you will probably be wrangling a stroller, backpack, water bottles, and the kid who refuses to sit in the stroller.

2. They are better for your kids than other snack brands.
You can pick and choose which variety is best for your family, but our favorite is the Non-GMO Variety. Besides being GMO free, they are also peanut free, and don't have any artificial colors or flavors. So when you, or your kids, are looking for something that has a satisfying salty crunch, but you don't want all the artificial junk, then these should be what you grab.

3. Your kids will actually eat them.
It doesn't matter how healthy or convenient something is if your kids won't eat it. They will just "accidentally" spill it on the ground and you are back at square one. It's safer just to go with Snyder's mini pretzels.

4. You can keep them in the car all the time.
They won't melt, or need to be packed in ice. You can keep the entire bag in your trunk for whenever you need it. All you have to do is keep an eye on the expiration date. I mean, our family doesn't worry about that because we eat them too fast, but I thought I would mention it.

So if you are looking for the perfect snack to always have on hand, you should start your search here. If you want to keep looking that's up to you, all I'm saying is you probably have a game this weekend, and car pool duty this week, so you might want to just trust me on this one. You can download a coupon on the Snyder's-Lance Snack Packs site and find them at a grocery store near you!
