My teen is constantly complaining that I don’t let him eat his brothers Goldfish Cracker snacks, which is kind of true. You see, if I buy a bag of Goldfish Crackers for tot, then he has a little here and there and it lasts quite awhile. Now if I buy that same bag for my teen then it would somehow be gone within 10 minutes. So I could let him have some of the crackers, but some = “all but a few at the bottom of the bag as an excuse to not have to throw it away”. My teen needed his own Goldfish.
While my eldest has been off spending the summer in Colorado, we’ve all been busy over here preparing for his return with a few surprises! I had heard about the new Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Puffs and was offered the chance to try some. How could I say no? We have everything from Goldfish Crackers to an actual Goldfish named Cracker!
My tot absolutely loves Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers (as proven by his fish) and I figured there was no one more qualified to go on a Goldfish Puff trip, so we headed off to Target in search for ‘Big Brother’s Snacks’. You can read about our fun ‘fishing trip’ and the things he had eventually conned me into getting.
The great thing about the Goldfish Puffs is they seem designed for bigger kids. The bag is bigger, the bites are bigger and the flavors pack a puff! They aren’t just dusted with the particular flavor of the bag, the puffs themselves are deliciously cheesy unlike other poofy snacks. The bag we got to try, the Buffalo Wings (since everyone bought all the others at Target!), was very bold with that sweet and salty tang of its namesake. Tot liked the idea that the little crackers were his and the big crackers were big brothers, even if he didn’t want to let go of the bag.
The real test was seeing if the Goldfish Puffs were a good snack for his big brother. So tot and I decided to put it to the test and the results speak for themselves.
We are going to have to go out and get teen some more Goldfish Puffs before he arrives, but at least we know he can do all the things he loves while having a big brother sized snack. Now the only problem I have to deal with is keeping my tot from eating all of his!
