Michael Season's Snacks Review and Giveaway...

Cool For School Giveaway #12

Thanks to Michael Season's, we recently got the chance to try out some yummy baked snacks.
About Michael Season's:
"A tradition of taste. A commitment to "better-for-you" snacks.
In 1976, the founder and president of Seasons’ Enterprises, Ltd., Michael Season, moved his wife and children from Illinois to Oregon to try his hand at organic farming. From that Oregon farm, the family developed one of the largest natural foods distributorships in the U.S. When the family returned to the Midwest, Michael started what is known today as Michael Season’s brand potato chips, and the product quickly gained a loyal following. Michael realized that there was a market for healthy, additive-free foods. In 1993, he introduced what is now one of the company’s most successful products—Michael Season’s Thin & Crispy Potato Chips. These great-tasting, reduced fat chips are also popular with a growing number of consumers with allergies or dietary limitations. Michael Season’s is committed to using all-natural ingredients and providing an exceptional product at an affordable price."
We were lucky enough to get to sample 4 varieties of snacks...
-Baked Multigrain Chips are Wheat & Gluten Free! 33% Reduced Fat from the leading brand of Multigrain Chips – with 20% less calories and 12 grams of Whole Grains per Serving. What could be better to tantalize your taste buds that some Sweet Barbecue Potato Crisps. Made with simple and pure ingredients like potatoes, sunflower oil and salt, they are a guilt free snack treat.
Looking for a cheese snack but not all that fat, 50% less fat than the regular cheddar curls this Baked crunchy cheddar curl will satisfy you
r craving...all natural, wheat free, gluten free and made with real cheese what a delight!
Baked Cheddar Puff with 65% less fat than the regular cheddar puff... you will love this all natural, wheat free & gluten free snack! Made with real cheese & organic cornmeal, this will be your new favorite snack!
What we thought: The kid's really loved these snacks and I loved knowing they were snacking healthy:) They come in full size and snack size bags, which are perfect for lunch boxes and portion control. They have several other flavors to choose from so you could definitely mix these up and they wouldn't gt old:) ABCD Diaries gives Michael Season's snacks an A and our Cool For School Seal of Approval.
