Review: Slammers Snacks

*Disclosure: I received samples to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. 

My kids are big fans of snacking, which means that I am constantly trying to come up with healthy snack foods to have on hand for them. Recently we had the chance to try a new snack called Slammers. Here's a bit about these, from information that I was sent.

 Designed as fuel in organic snack form, Slammers is a fun super-food line made with active kids in mind and sold exclusively in the U.S. These on-the-go pouches are available at Target and Safeway locations in the following four delicious flavors:

 EPIC – mangoes, bananas, oranges, carrots, Greek yogurt & real vanilla
 AWESOME – bananas, blueberries, strawberries, beets, acai, amaranth (a highly nutritious gluten-free grain)
 CHILL’N – bananas, blueberries, butternut squash, Greek yogurt & yumberry
 PUMPED – bananas, pineapple, mangos, ancient grains, butternut squash, cinnamon
Vivian was the first one to try a Slammers snack, and I'm pretty sure it took me longer to twist off the cap than it did for her to finish the entire pouch and ask for another. She is a big fan of these! Ethan agreed with her and also asked for another when he finished his first pouch.  I love that the kids are getting good things in them and that a healthy-for-them snack is one that they enjoy and ask for! Win win!
