Make Walmart your ‘SNACKATION’ Destination

I was recently asked by The J.M. Smucker Company to create some unique tips for using a new product and I wanted to share with you.

We fill up every summer with lots of fun things to do and places to go. Most of it includes family road trips, vacation, visiting family, and weekend trips. For these kind of adventures you need to know what to pack to make kids happy and to satisfy their hungry.

I am one frugal mom so I like to prepare snacks when I can to prevent from spending money on eating out. Peanut butter and jelly can go a long way and is an inexpensive way to snack or for lunch. To prepare our Summer Snackation, I headed to Walmart to pick up everything we needed for our next road trip. I picked up Jif Whips, Jif to go Dippers, Uncrustable’s, and Smucker’s Strawberry Jam along with some bread, tortilla’s, and celery.

We are getting ready to head back to my hometown in Ohio for my family reunion. We have a family reunion every year where my extended family gets together and plays games such as Bingo, cards, Bocce Ball, and we even have an auction to bid on wrapped gifts. It is going to be so much fun and I can’t wait to catch up with everyone to see what they are up to.

The total travel time will be 4 hours: 2 hours to get there and 2 hours to get home. While that may not seem like a long trip, it feels like forever for my kids and they will get hungry along the way. I will be preparing snacks for the trip from my Smucker’s items I picked up at Walmart. Stay tuned for my next post to see my Summer Snackation Ideas.

What are your #Snackation Ideas?
