It’s August 22 and if your kiddos aren’t back to school yet, they soon will be! We are finishing up our first full week of school here, and I am trying to get back into the swing of packing lunches again. It’s always a challenge for me to find healthy snack and lunch items that my kids will actually eat, but this year has been much easier thanks to the new Gold Emblem Abound product line at CVS/pharmacy.
The next time you are at your local CVS/pharmacy stocking up on great personal care and household deals, be sure to swing by the food and snack aisles. It’s easy to locate Gold Emblem Abound products by their bright green packaging.
The folks at CVS sent me a huge box of goodies a couple of weeks ago, and we have been happily eating through them. In fact, in the image above, if you look closely enough you’ll see that the bag of Heavenly Light Popcorn is empty! We ate through 3 bags of it at an alarming rate because it is so good. My kids usually want buttered popcorn, but they don’t miss the butter at all in this popcorn. The sea salt must make up for it. ;-) Popcorn is so easy to send with the kids to school in a baggie. It’s perfect in lunches and for a snack.
I make a lot of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and I was excited to see that the Gold Emblem Abound product line includes peanut butter. It tastes like peanuts – not artificial gunk, and is delicious! My kids haven’t noticed that I swapped out our regular peanut butter for this – an added bonus!
Here are the ingredients:
Snack bars are another pantry staple that I like to have on hand. My kids eat them for breakfast sometimes, and I like to keep a stash of them in my van. I’ll also throw them in a packed lunch for a quick, nutritious side when I’m running low on fresh fruit or other snacks. These Gold Emblem Chocolate Chunk and Chia bars have been popular with both my kids and my husband:

From now through TOMORROW August 23, 2014, CVS/pharmacy will donate 1% of purchases of select Back to School products, up to $125,000, to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America in support of their new campaign, Great Futures, which aims to open more doors for America’s kids and encourage them to learn, inspire them to lead, and motivate them to be healthy. When school ends at 3 p.m. each day, 15 million kids in America have nowhere to go. Without a structured schedule after school, kids are left unguided, unsupervised, and potentially unsafe. To help these kids, the Great Futures campaign will mobilize the nation around the issues facing America’s youth, raise awareness for the critical role of out-of-school time, and empower the next generation of youth on their path to a great future.
WIN IT! 3 lucky winners are going to win a variety pack of Gold Emblem Abound products to try for themselves!
