We all remember the slogan from our childhoods: “Mr. Christie, you make good cookies”. And according to our expert panel of product testers, they still do. 25 lucky Go2Girlz members recently had the opportunity to sample all the cookies in the new line of Mr. Christie’s Snak Paks – all five of which are designated as Sensible Solution, Kraft’s line of better-for-you products! What makes Mr. Christie’s Snak Paks sensible? Well, Barnum’s ABC’s Cocoa Snak Pak Cookies have 30 mg of DHA/EPA per 1 pack (30 g), are a source of iron and are 0 trans fat and Teddy Grahams cookies and Barnum’s Animal crackers Snak Paks are now baked with whole grain, are 0 trans fat and are a source of fibre.
And what makes this line of kids’ snacks even more appealing is that four of the five varieties of cookies (all except the Mini Oreo Snak Paks) are made in a peanut-free facility, so they are safe for families with allergies and all moms can feel comfortable putting them in school lunches – whatever your school’s peanut policy. What’s more, all the peanut-free varieties are clearly marked with the easily recognized peanut-free logo, so kids and adults alike can tell at a glance that they are manufactured in a peanut-free facility.
But what did the real moms, our Go2Girlz testers, have to say about Mr. Christie’s Snak Paks? They loved them! Almost every one of the moms who tested Mr. Christie’s Snak Paks said they would recommend them to a friend and buy them for their families. The features they loved best were the Sensible Solution features: these snacks are made with whole grain and have no trans fats. Of course, everyone also loved the taste, and the convenient individual packages which make it so easy to add these Snak Paks to lunches. It also works as great portion control, too, for the grown-up cookie monsters in the family! Finally, all our testers were pleased that four of the five cookies in the range are made in a peanut-free facility.
But we’ll let the Go2Girlz speak for themselves. Here’s a sample of what they had to say about Mr. Christie’s Snak Paks:
