I have been added to the roll of bloggers on The Dish, a site by ConAgra foods that offers bloggers access to recipes, cooking advice - and most exciting to my kids - free samples delivered conveniently to our home by our friendly mailman, just in time for an after-school snack.
And for an indication of how well it went over with the kids - they've come up with a 4-Spoon rating system. Each kid gets a vote, so a product can get a score of 0-Spoons to 4. Nope, has nothing to do with cost, nutritional value, or ease of preparation - just whether the kids liked it and would eat it again. Because, really, that's all I want to know.
Our first product... Snack Pack Pudding - Bakery Shop Collection: Banana Cream PieI've got to say, this one was up against some strong taste-test competition. The kids' grand-dad makes a banana pudding that is a must at every family gathering, with very little leftovers. You know, one of those dishes that no-one else in the family would dare to make. Yeah, its that good. Add that to the fact that my son (1 Spoon) does not even like bananas.
|The pudding cups rate a 3 on our 4-Spoon scale!|
Moms - why you'll like it? It's shelf-stable, which is nice to be able to keep snacks at the ready in the pantry or to throw in the snack bag for all the riding around from here to there. It's in convenient little cups so portion control is already taken care of. And, they come in packs of 4 - I love when things come in multiples of 4 - and several other "Bakery Shop" flavors.
*Note: I like to cook and I love trying out new recipes, whether prompted by a product company or not. If I have been provided products or a recipe from a site/company as a promotion, I'll be sure to let you know. If I don't say so, then its simply something I've come across that I'd like to share. Enjoy!
