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!
