Robert's American Gourmet Pirate's Booty Snack-Size Bags

Is anyone else just so excited that Pirate's Booty (or "Pirate's Foody" as my son calls it) now comes in a snack-size bag? No matter what I do to keep the bigger bag fresh, they end up tasting like packing peanuts within a day. My only complaint is that the bags are HUGE. I mean, I know Pirate's Booty is mostly air--and the bags really are just a one-ounce serving--but I don't like the kids thinking that such a large-looking bag is the norm (next stop: Doritos Big Grab). Okay, I actually just don't like the fact that I can't jam them into my purse, although that could be the fault of my overstuffed wallet (think George's exploding wallet on Seinfeld). Now if Robert's would just make snack-size Tings, 'cause mommy can't seem to keep her hand out of the bag...

Nature's Path Organic Blueberry Toaster Pastries

These must smell like the real deal because I had one in the toaster this morning and my husband wandered down and said, "If I was 14 I'd swear someone was cooking a Pop-Tart!" These come in Strawberry and Blueberry flavors, in both iced and uniced versions. The pastry is flaky and decadent-tasting (even though there are only 4.5 fat grams per serving in the uniced version--try comparing that to the commercial brands). The fillings are simple but good. I'm not sure I would actually serve them to my kids for breakfast but they're a nice change of pace for snack-time. I found them in the natural foods section of my local chain supermarket. Or you can click here to buy them right now on Amazon.

Whole Kids Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter

If you have access to a Whole Foods Market in your area (and family members who like peanut butter!) I definitely recommend seeking out this product. It's a nice alternative for those who don't care for "natural style" peanut butters but still want something with healthy, organic ingredients. The oils don't separate, and it's extremely creamy and easy to spread with just the right touch of sweetness. Tastes even better than the big commercial brands.

Dr. Oetker's Simple Organics Chocolate Organic Brownie Mix

I found this mix in the natural foods section of my local supermarket. I love discovering new baking mixes because as much as I fantasize about lazy afternoons spent baking from scratch with my kids, everyone's patience starts to wear a bit thin as we plow through a dozen or so ingredients. Besides, mixing is the best part as far as they're concerned, so adding a couple of eggs and some butter is as close to the real thing as they need to get! I whipped these up last night and tried them out on a few kid and adult friends. Thumbs up all around. These are very dense, moist brownies, not the cake-like kind. My husband said they have the perfect "chew" factor. It might have been nice if they'd cooked up a little higher--they were pretty flat even though I used the suggested 8-inch square baking pan.

Apparently they also have mixes for cakes, icing, cookies, muffins, pancakes, and waffles, as well as an all-purpose baking mix. In addition to the brownie mix, the only other one carried by my local chain supermarket was the muffin mix.
