Ritz Crackerfuls

We’ve all been there. Your hungry and you are looking for something good to eat in your house that’s healthy.  I’ll be honest — I’ve munch on chips and chocolate.  Granted, I know that’s not the best thing to be eating, but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!  That is why I am so happy to learn about Ritz Crackerfuls!

Ritz Crackerfuls are crackers with some very yummy fillings between them.  They currently have four varieties — garlic herb, four cheese, classic cheddar, and cheddar cheese & bacon.  My family and I got to try the Classic Cheddar and Cheddar Cheese & Bacon.  One word for you:  YUM!  These snacks are sooooo good.  Each crackerful is made with 6 grams of whole grains and real cheese.  My favorite part has to be the packaging though.  They are individually wrapped in their own sleeve.  You don’t have to worry about smashing it in your purse or diaper bag.  Best of all, they are really filling.  The kids and I have been snacking on these, and I’m not sure if we can go back to plain crackers!

Now, that I have made you all hungry, I’ve got some great news.  Check out the Ritz Crackers Facebook page where you can get a $1 Off Cheddar Cheese & Bacon Crackerfuls! This is good through August 31, 2010 or up to just over 33k coupon prints.  Happy snacking!

Freschetta Pizza

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Freschetta. All opinions are 100% mine.

All pizzas are not created equal. I recently learned that when I tried the Freschetta FlatBread Pizza.  I’m so use to frozen pizza tasting — well, pretty bland.  Freschetta pizzas?  Not bland at all!  My family and I tried the Zesty Italian pizza and I’d give it two thumbs up!  This flatbread pizza has the thinnest crust I’ve ever seen.  Thin, but yummy though.  The Zesty Italian pizza has pepperoni, genoa salami, italian sausage, and mozzarella and asiago cheese.  What impressed me was that these are quality ingredients.  They use all-natural cheeses and a sauce made from real, ripe tomatoes.  The meat is in big chunks with a ton of flavor.  You see these kind of ingredients on fresh pizzas — not frozen ones!  Yet, Freschetta managed to do it and keep the taste!  There are other varieties you can try also:   Roasted Garlic and Spinach, Pepperoni, and Five Cheese.  (I’ve tried all except the Roasted Garlic and Spinach, and they were all yummy).

If this sounds like something you’d like to try (and you want to try this!), you can get $1 off coupon at the Freschetta site.  This pizza is definitely going to be on my shopping list from here on out.
