Back To School Snacks With Horizon Organics

Disclaimer: I received the following product(s) in exchange for my review. All opinions my own.


It's that season again...books, school supplies, new clothes, and snacks!  Back to School is in full gear this time of year,  which means its time to stock up on those fun and easy to use school snacks! 

Horizon Organics make several school snacks you can feel proud to give your children. Their snacks range in a variety of crackers, fruit snacks, and fruit squeezes giving your children choices for each day of the week. These snacks are made with wholesome ingredients such as calcium, protein, whole grains, Vitamin D, Potassium, and more! They are also free of preservatives, artificial flavors and colors, as well as organic and GMO Free.

As a Bzzagent, I was sent some delicious Horizon Organic Snacks to try with my family. The first box we tried were the Horizon Organic Cheese Sandwich Crackers. We loved them! The silky cheese middle is so fun for kids to lick off, or just pop the whole cracker into your mouth and enjoy. The crackers taste great and they are not overly salty like a lot of snack crackers are. Plus you can taste the realness of the cheese, not no processed junk. I love that they have 3g of protein and 15% calcium in each serving (approx. 12 crackers). I think my son enjoyed the crackers more than me, because he was always asking for them lol. They are not only tasty, but their sandwich snacking makes them fun to eat. The only thing that I found sad about these crackers, is that children with nut allergies cannot eat them as they are produced in a facility that also produces tree nuts. Other then that sad factor, these crackers are fantastic and make a fun lunch box snack!

The second box we tried was the Horizon Organics Bunch O' Berries Fruit Snacks. These little squishys have such a nice texture and their flavor is amazingly delicious. Probably one of the best fruit snacks I have tried. I love the shape of the cows, and that these snacks are healthier than others, though I would love to see more fruit in the ingredients. The snacks contain Organic White Grape Juice Concentrate and Organic Black Carrot Juice Concentrate, I would love to see more fruits and veggies added into these to make them even healthier. I do like that a serving of these fruit snacks contain 100% Vitamin C. Each box contains five pouches so a box will last about a week with one kid. These are perfect for adding to the lunchbox or as an after school snack. Though pretty sticky so make sure you include a wipe lol. 

   After enjoying the first two boxes of Horizon Organics, we wanted to try them all. We couldn't find any in our local grocery stores. But later on, we did end up finding a bunch of flavors at Winco! So we bought The Horizon Organics Chocolate Grahams, and later their Honey Grahams (which I forgot to take a picture of) and love them just as much as the previous boxes. The Chocolate Grahams have a nice cocoa flavor but they aren't too sweet like other chocolate treats out there. They are made with organic wheat and offer 8g of whole grains per serving (about 15 cookies) and 10% calcium. The Honey Grahams are also made with organic wheat and 8g of whole grains per serving, with 15% calcium. 

We are sold on Horizon Organics products and love them for day to day snacks. 
They are excellent for filling up lunch boxes or holding for an after school snack. We also like to 
eat them midday, since we homeschool :) I would love to try all of Horizon Organic products, 
because I'm sure I will love them all the same!
