Giddy All Natural Kid Friendly Snack, Review and Giveaway



dip'ems (strawberry, grape, sour apple, strawberry). Each individually wrapped snack pack has scrumptious biscuits baked with whole grains to dip in real fruit! No refined sugar, no high fructose corn syrup, no preservatives or anything artificial. Just real, tasty food!










As a mom I have learned one thing about getting kids to eat things I WANT them to eat: if they think it's fun, they're way more likely to eat it.  And DIP is fun for kids.  Our family got to try the strawberry and grape dip 'ems and they were a hit.  I will say I was a little nervous about the brightly colored fruit dip and my inherently messy kids but there was no mess left behind.  It may have been because they were inhaled so quickly that I didn't even get the chance to take a photo of the kids enjoying them.  And if I didn't know better, I'd think they has some sort of magical* ability because my boys even threw away their garbage....BEFORE I even asked them too. 

*Neither giddy or I make any real claim of magical powers to make kids clean up!



I'm not sure I'd use these snack IN the car but they are great for on the go if you're going to be snacking outside or somewhere that isn't moving. The fruit dip is a little too liquidy for me to be comfortable with the kids (or even myself) having it open in a moving vehicle.  But at the park or out in our yard, or even in our house they are great.  And they are packaged well for travel.  I've tried traveling with fresh fruit before and it doesn't go very well.  This is a great alternative.

You can find Dip 'Ems from Giddy in local Chicago area Target stores now, in by the fruit snacks and granola bars for $3.99.
