Snacks You Can Trust from Van’s Natural Foods


The best tip I know for sticking to a whole foods diet? Shop the perimeter of the grocery store. That’s where the fresh foods live, so don’t go down those aisles! But let’s be honest – as much as we’d like to make every cracker from scratch, every mom needs a few go-to prepackaged foods for those days when homemade just doesn’t happen. For us, one of those options is Van’s Natural Foods.

Van's Natural Foods

We’ve tried lots of Van’s products before, but earlier this year, they launched their first gluten-free snack line with crackers, cereals and snack bars. Like all Van’s choices, these snacks feature high-quality ingredients without artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors or preservatives. They’re perfect for lunchboxes, road trips, or the secret pocket in my purse! Continue reading

Crunchmaster Multi-grain Crackers: Snacking love, and a giveaway!

Ah, snacking. It really gets a bad rap, doesn’t it?

I love snacks. All kinds. Sure, there are snacks that deserve our scorn (yeah, I’m talking to YOU, Extreme Cookies and Cream!) But there are others that make up for it. Delicious, feel-good snacks that give you that crunchy, snacky satisfaction without all the guilt.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am proud to introduce you to Crunchmaster Multi-grain Crackers!

I know, I know. A cracker might not sound all that exciting. After all, it’s just a vehicle for whatever yummy cracker-topper you’re loading it with, right? Wrong! I’m a firm believer that no matter how good the dip or cheese may be, if you start out with an inferior vehicle, well, it’s all down hill from there.

No such worries with these babies. I served them recently at my son’s 2nd birthday party, and everyone loved them. The white cheddar flavor was the runaway favorite (especially dipped in the guacamole and spinach dips) and my husband and little man have been crunchin’ on them ever since! (Toddler-friendly = bonus!)

Why I think YOU might like Crunchmaster crackers:

  • They have a unique texture, kind of like those super-crunchy Japanese rice snacks. Stands up well to any kind of dip, with no chance of sogginess.
  • They are oven-baked and have 65% less fat than regular multi-grain chips.
  • They are a good source of fiber, free of saturated fat and cholesterol, certified gluten-free and contain 21 g of whole grains per serving
  • Most importantly to me, many of the items Crunchmaster produces, including the original flavor multi-grain crackers, are certified GMO-free!

Not bad, right? Now let’s get down to business…how can YOU try them?

You could check your local grocery store, because they’re available nationwide (4.5 oz. for $2.50 to $3.99, 20 oz. for $7.48 to $7.59) or, you could enter to win a whole case of certified gluten-free white cheddar Crunchmaster crackers right here at ABCGP! Woot!
