#GoMommy: Sesame Place And Sunbelt Bakery Snacks
Summer 2014 was definitely the summer of road trips for my family. This July and August, as we literally hit every state on the east coast on four different occasions–yes, we traveled from Maine to Florida–in our trusty car, we definitely had our fair share of road side meals. But every rest st0p is not a reason to grab something to eat; you can only eat but so many burgers, chicken fingers, and two-day old salads. At some point, even the fruit cups and yogurts start to turn your stomach when you’ve been traveling for hours on the open road. This was also the year of the on-the-go snack solution, too.
While we packed fruits, pretzels, popcorn, juices and water, for the road we didn’t know what we were missing until we got into Sunbelt Bakery granola bars. While thoughts of hard, crumbly and dry snacks may come to mind when you think of granola, Sunbelt Bakery bars are different. We were set to bring them on our trip to Sesame Place Family Amusement Park in Langhorne, Pa., (above, you’ll see our necessities in the backpack: bars and tickets for Sesame Place), which is less than two hours away, but we also packed these yummy life savers on the long trip from NYC to Tampa, Florida, on a recent trip from NYC to New Hampshire and Maine, and on another day trip to Great Adventure and to countless beach days.
Sunbelt Bakery hooked us up with mad flavors of their healthy whole grain bars to fuel our busy days. And yes, over the summer, we ate every variety we could get our hands on, including: Low Fat Oatmeal Raisin, Chocolate Chip, Oats and Honey, Fudge Dipped Chocolate Chip, Fudge Dipped Coconut (my personal obsession), Strawberry Fruit and Grain, Blueberry Fruit and Grain, Banana Harvest, Almond Sweet and Salty. Believe it or not, there are even more selections so pickiest of little eaters will find something they love.
Big Bird? Yep, He loved the Oatmeal Raisin bars we gave him.

I’ve made a habit out of throwing a Sunbelt Bakery bar into my purse on my way to work and even on the weekends to stave off hunger between meals. And when I shared a box at my office? Gone in one day. This day I went for the peanut butter chocolate chip. So yummy and just 150 calories.
One of the best parts about Sunbelt Bakery chewy granola bars, fruit and grain cereal bars, and granola cereals is that they’re made with whole-grains that provide nutrition on the go and never contain preservatives or high fructose corn syrup. The kids agree!
Grandma will get me for posting this pic, but she’s a big fan of the bars too!
