We are always looking for quick and easy things to throw into Olivia’s lunch box on the days that she takes lunch to school. She sometimes wants to take lunch instead of buy lunch like she does most days and so finding something that she will eat is a little difficult. Well thank goodness Smucker’s has come out with this awesome product called “Uncrustables.” We have gotten them in the past but Olivia just wasn’t too interested in eating them then but something has changed in the past year. She has wanted to eat them and try them out because I’m sure some of her friends get to bring them to school as their sandwich. Well we went ahead and purchased two boxes, the new flavor, Peanut Butter and Honey on Wheat Bread and the Cheese Uncrustables. Olivia loved the Cheese flavor I guess because it reminded her of eating a grilled cheese sandwich only it was shaped as a “sun” as she calls it. I was the one who ate the Peanut Butter and Honey uncrustables and have fallen in love with that flavor.
I can still remember when Smucker’s Uncrustables first came out and I was crazy over the original flavors, Peanut Butter and Strawberry Jam on White Bread, and PB & Grape Jelly on White Bread. But now I am loving them because they have come out with more flavors that are more appealing to children (and adults) and they also have them on healthy bread like Wheat Bread. Since Olivia doesn’t like Peanut Butter the only thing that she would eat would be the Cheese one but if Smucker’s had a Jelly Only Uncrustables she’d be sure to eat that one.
As a parent I feel that finding something that is store bought and healthy is a little difficult these days but I love how Uncrustables are a great healthy option for kids to bring their lunch and know that they are getting something that doesn’t have a lot of fat or grease content in them. Plus they have so many different flavors and options to choose from. Another great thing is that you can just throw these in your childs lunch box or lunch bag directly from the freezer and by lunch time they have thawed and yet their still cold like if you had just taken the sandwich out of the fridge. We love this product and we are definitely going to be purchasing more in the near future!!!
