I am constantly looking for snacks that I can take on the go for my kids. We do a lot of traveling and have a lot of long doctors appointments. So when I was able to check out Organic Slammers, I was super excited. My kids were even more excited when they seen the boxes on the counter and were ready to try them out immediately.
I gave each kid one of each flavor to try. They both have their favorite flavors. Awesome, is a mixture of: Bananas, Blueberries, Strawberries, Beets, Acai, and Amaranth. This one both my kids loved immediately. I tried some of theirs just to test it out. And it really was delicious. You don't taste the earthy flavor of beets at all. It just taste like a fruit sauce. My youngest son who is two actually favored this flavor.
Next, I gave them the Pomegranate Grape Crush, which has 7 grams of Protein per pouch. The flavors in this pouch are: Grape, Pomegranate, Coconut, Apple, Banana, and Purple Carrot. I want to be completely honest. Because of my lack of reading before giving them to my boys, they were not super impressed. These ones taste WAY better if you refrigerate them. Once they were actually cold, my boys both liked them. My only personal downfall is I had to tell my oldest that he had to ask me before getting this particular one because he needs medication to have proteins. But, that is just me personally. I tried this one too, I could really taste the grape, and a hint of coconut. It wasn't bad at all cold. These have been helpful on the days that my oldest is not wanting to eat anything but fruits and vegetables.
The last flavor we received to try out was Amped. The flavors in this pouch are: Apples Strawberries, Cherries, Chia and Purple Carrot. My oldest LOVES this one. He tries to sneak and get them. And at four has now figured out how to open them alone. I am completely fine with him grabbing for a Slammer Pouch, verses candy or junk food he could be going for. My younger son also enjoyed this flavor. He is just not as much as an apple lover as my oldest.
These have been great for on the go morning snacks. My four year old if he gets up in the middle of the night, and wants to find a late night snack. (It is really five in the morning, but we try to tell him it is still the middle of the night. In hopes to get just a little bit more rest) He has asked for these. I wouldn't leave them in your car in extreme heat or cold, but throw a few in your diaper bag, or take them when you know its going to be a while. The pouch is great and causes much less mess in your car or out and about. If you would like to find out about these flavors, and other great flavors from Organic Slammers, please click here.
