When I was in school, my favorite subject was lunch. Seriously. Learning was for the birds back then! It wasn’t until I met my husband that I realized I had some basic knowledge gaps with stuff I should have learned as a kid, such as US presidents and state capitals. I would like to think it’s because I lived in Canada until the 5th grade but it might be a combination of that, bad public schools, and my lack of desire or care (mostly this, I’m sure). Now, as an adult I wish I knew some of these things to keep up with my husband. Well, I’m seriously beyond thrilled to have found a product that combines my favorite subject (food) with learning!
This post was sponsored by Dick & Jane Educational Snacks but, as always, all opinions are mine.
Educational snacks are here, friends! Now I can get myself up to speed and make sure my kids are ahead of the game, too! There are three learning options but the flavor is the same for all three:
So, I have to be really honest (as I always am). I was skeptical at first. I thought there was no way that anything having to do with learning could actually be tasty. But, I was pleasantly surprised and happy to be wrong! Dick & Jane Educational Snacks really are so good and my kids love them, too! The flavor is a cross between an animal cracker and a Nilla Wafer (in my opinion). A and I had such a great time snacking on them together.
My family is Hispanic but I don’t speak Spanish fluently, despite studying it in high school and college. I know enough to get by and A learns some watching Dora the Explorer, but it’s nice to be able to reinforce it while we snack! Also, my husband is a big American History buff and is always impressing me with his knowledge of all of our presidents and their term order. I’ve never known that. But not anymore! And, of course, who doesn’t need to brush up on their capitals?! I would be totally lying if I said I didn’t learn anything from reading these snacks before I ate them.
I highly recommend these delicious educational treats for snackers of all ages. It’s like having edible flash cards! You can purchase them on Amazon for only $19.99 per 30 bags. (That’s only $0.67 per bag for those of you who spent more time snacking than learning math, like me.) Plus, if you use the code SHANSNCK on Amazon, you’ll save 15%!
Get your snack on, my friends! Learning can be delicious.
