Annie’s Makes Lunch Time Exciting Again! #BACKTOSCHOOL

Annie Withey believed that it is possible to build a socially conscious and successful business.

This was her goal when she started making delicious Mac & Cheese and selling it from her car trunk when she co-founded the company back in 1989.
Our commitment deepens each year

Nearly 30 years later, Annie’s values still serve as the foundation for everything we do. The journey to become a socially conscious and successful business has no end point, and even though we’re proud of how far we’ve come, year after year we continue to push ourselves to do better. Hop over to our timeline to learn more.

Organic Pink Lemonade’s offer a burst of slightly sweet lemon flavor. Certified organic, these vegan and gluten-free bunny-shaped fruit snacks are made with real fruit juice and packed with 100% daily value of vitamin C.

Annie’s new Lemon Drop Cookie Bites may be small, but they deliver big on taste and fun! Best of all, they don’t contain any high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, or artificial flavors & synthetic colors that you’ll find in other cookies. These bite-size treats are the perfect addition to lunch and snack bags for toddlers and teenagers alike. Annie’s Cookie Bites come in a convenient, on-the-go, resealable bag.

What goes better with popcorn than real butter and sea salt? Annie’s Organic Butter & Sea Salt Popcorn is a classic combo, packed with a homemade taste. We’re talking about a scrumptious snack for the whole family, that’s best enjoyed by the handful (or bowlful). Our naturally gluten free popcorn is less than 75 calories per cup and offers 8g whole grains per serving. Plus, it’s made with goodness! That means no artificial flavors, synthetic colors or preservatives.

Meet our newest, cutest, most craveable snack: Annie’s Organic White Cheddar Bunny Tail Puffs! That’s right, this hoppy new snack is not only certified organic, but it’s packed with crunch and covered in our classic white cheddar goodness. Our puffs are shaped with fun & cuteness in mind, and made without any of the junky stuff you’ll find in the snack aisle. Baked, not fried, gluten-free, and packed with 8 grams of whole grains per serving – we’re talking about a whole lot of yum for everybunny in the family to enjoy!

In celebration of friendships across the globe, we created Organic Bunny Graham Friends. A variety of different flavors go into our box of Organic Bunny Graham Friends. Introduce yourself one delicious flavor at a time – Honey, Chocolate Chip, and Chocolate – or unite them all in one mouthful! Any way you select them, our Bunnies are the perfect size for toddler hands, and their crispy crunch satisfies snackers of all ages.  Also available in sharing size and a 6oz resealable bag at certain retail locations.

Celebrate our planet with a delicious bowl of Annie’s new Organic Mac & Trees™, featuring Love Your Planet™ pasta shapes including a sun, earth, bicycle, tree and recycle symbol! Our new eco-themed mac is made with wholesome ingredients and connected to an even greater cause: funding school garden through Annie’s Grants for Gardens program. Annie’s will donate $10,000 of Mac & Trees profits annually to provide additional support for school gardens.

My Review:
Annie’s makes lunch time exciting again! My kids love Annie’s snacks and as a mom of 4, I love that they're socially conscious and that all their products taste amazing. Annie's has a wide range of products that will once again make lunchtime exciting again. Some parts of the country just let out for summer break but soon back to school time will be here and with that comes the need to once again make daily lunches that kids will actually eat. I don't know about your kids but my kids seem to tire of the same old boring snacks which is why I love these super fun snacks from Annie’s. Not only are Annie’s products delicious but many also come in fun shapes to make snack time that much more fun. My kids often play with their food and as a mom of 4, I'm okay with that, especially because they usually end up eating every bite while doing so. Annie’s products make perfect additions to lunches and provide fun snacking options that kids will surely love!

Entertain Kids with Dinosaur Detective's Search-and-Find Rescue Mission by Sophie Guerrive!

by Sophie Guerrive 

Book Description
With his red airplane, the Dinosaur Detective travels the world in search of lost animals. A rich and whimsical "hide and seek" picture book, which takes the reader on a puzzle-packed tour of a dozen different destinations, including the jungle, the stormy sea and outerspace. Detailed drawings of drama-filled scenes will challenge children of all ages to test their spotting skills.

About the Author
Sophie Guerrive was born in 1983 in Marseille and studied at the University of Aix en Provence and then at the School of Arts Décoratifs in Strasbourg. She has loved comics since she was a child, and is influenced by strips like Peanuts, Calvin and Hobbes or Mafalda. Her books are usually full of adventure and tinged with absurd humour. She has been artist-in-residence at the House of Artists of Angoulême since 2013.

My Review:
Entertain kids with Dinosaur Detective's Search-and-Find Rescue Mission by Sophie Guerrive! My kiddos absolutely love this book because it combines their favorite things like dinosaurs and search and finds. The pictures throughout this book are awesome and make the challenge of finding the hiding items just challenging enough to make it fun. My kids never once got frustrated and I love that all of my kids were able to enjoy this book, from my 2 year old to my 9 year old, they each had a blast finding the hidden items. I also love that Dinosaur Detective's Search-and-Find Rescue Mission by Sophie Guerrive is a hardcover book so it will stand up to little hands. I often find my kids looking through this book on their own to search for the hidden items so I also really like that it's something we can do together or apart. Dinosaur Detective's Search-and-Find Rescue Mission by Sophie Guerrive is an amazingly fun book, especially for kids that love dinosaurs!

You can find Dinosaur Detective's Search-and-Find Rescue Mission by Sophie Guerrive on AmazonBarnes and Noble and other bookstores.

Enjoy Handcrafted, Gourmet Popcorn from G.H. Cretors!


To most, popcorn is just a snack. To us, popcorn is so much more than that. It’s a mouth-watering break from your day. It’s a flavor-filled moment to yourself. It’s a love letter sent straight to your taste buds. And at G.H. Cretors, it’s the reason we get up in the morning. 

Since 1885, we’ve been creating handcrafted, gourmet popcorn one mouth-watering batch at a time. Every perfectly-popped detail is intentional—from the premium, aged cheddar cheese that smothers our fluffy, delectable kernels, to the creamy caramel cooked by actual Candy Chefs. Yes, “Candy Chefs” are a thing. It all adds up to bringing you the most obsessively delicious popcorn you’ve ever tasted. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.  

We say NO to GMOs.
To put it simply, if it’s not pure, it’s not in our popcorn. We strive to provide the most authentic popped corn we can by using only the highest-quality, real ingredients. We use Non-GMO popcorn and Non-GMO ingredients whenever possible in all of our flavors, and only organic ingredients in our Organics line. 

A better way to sweeten.
Aside from its rich flavor profile, brown rice syrup has other pros—which is exactly why we use it. Unlike other sugars that cause “sugar highs,” brown rice syrup offers a steady supply of energy over a longer period. Bonus: It also has a wonderful, crisp sweetness. Most caramel corns still opt for corn syrup. Most, but not us. 

100% gluten-free. 100% to-die-for.
Popcorn is naturally gluten-free, and we’re committed to keeping it that way. We don’t process gluten in our facility, and all of our products are Certified Gluten-Free. For those with dietary restrictions or a gluten-free preference, look no further. 

Blend rich, buttery caramel corn and premium, aged cheddar cheese corn, and you’ve got a mouth-watering mix of sweet and salty. Or as we like to call it, The Mix.

Real, aged cheddar cheese poured on the fluffiest, gourmet popcorn you’ve ever tasted—that perfectly sums up this divinely delicious, cheese lover’s dream.  

Handcrafted in old-fashioned copper kettles, one batch at a time, is the secret to success for this crunchy, creamy, caramel delight.  

My Review:
Enjoy handcrafted, gourmet popcorn from G.H. Cretors! I'm a huge fan of popcorn, especially cheese and caramel popcorn so these gourmet popcorns from G.H. Cretors were right up my alley. G.H. Cretors popcorn is made to perfection! Not once did I bite into a hard piece of popcorn. Each kernel was popped to perfection. G.H. Cretors Just the Cheese Corn is amazingly cheesy! The cheese flavoring is intense just as it should be. Absolutely hands down some of the best cheese popcorn around! G.H. Cretors Just the Caramel Corn is also amazingly delicious and just what any sweet tooth lover needs in their life. Each bite is perfectly sweetened with crunchy, creamy, caramel that my taste buds went nuts for! The Mix by G.H. Cretors is just that, it's a mix of Just the Cheese Corn and Just the Caramel Corn and together the flavors are awesome! I never would have thought to combine the two, but when you do there's an amazing flavor combination that's absolutely perfect. My entire family absolutely loves G.H. Cretors popcorn and I foresee many many more bags of this stuff in our house!

Puzzle Size: 20" x 20"

My Review:
Kids will love these new Disney Ceaco Puzzles! My 4 almost 5 year old has been doing puzzles since she was about 18 months and she still to this day loves them. She's also a huge fan of anything Disney so she literally squealed when I received these puzzles. She immediately asked if she could put one together so I let her start with the Disney Friends Flowers in Her Hair puzzle and she couldn't wait to get it all put together. She sat very quietly and put it together while I cleaned and worked around the house. I was completely blown away at how little time it took her to get it put together. She really is a puzzle whiz and always has been. She and her older sisters put together the Disney Emoji Minnie puzzle and I absolutely loved seeing them work together to get the job done. The Disney Emoji Minnie and Disney Friends Flowers in Her Hair puzzles are extremely beautiful once they're all put together and an absolute blast to put together! They're the perfect indoor activity for kids!

My Review:
Cook easier and eat healthier with Home Chef! I'm a super busy mom of 4 who works from home and homeschools my kiddos so I often have very little time to even think about dinner. I also love eating healthy but because of the lack of time I often end up eating unhealthy. I often end up tossing a frozen pizza in the oven when I realize I don't have all the ingredients I need to make what I want to. Home Chef makes it so easy! They send you the ingredients to make wonderful meals like I made above as well as a simple easy recipe to follow. In fact the recipes are so easy to follow, my 9 year old ended up doing most of the work. I'm completely in love with Home Chef and have to say as the mother of 3 girls Home Chef is the perfect easy way to prepare meals together because they're incredibly easy to follow. Home Chef has definitely won me over and I highly recommend them!
