Holiday Snackin' & Stocking Stuffers

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.

Christmas is around the corner and you may be stressing about what to serve as snacks for all your guests or what to put in those stockings! I have the perfect food ideas for you to serve, share and stuff those stockings with!

Popcorn Indiana

Popcorn Indiana has so many AMAZING snack ideas including their NEW Granola Popcorn Clusters! Check out three of my favorites below: 

Caramel Popcorn

They take the perfect blend of warm, buttery caramel and drape it over fresh and crunchy popcorn, crafted it in small batches by hand in artisan kettles. They start with the finest Midwestern corn and then add simple ingredients — like molasses — that's it. Popped to perfection. It's the way popcorn is supposed to be. 

This was so addicting and I found myself reaching for this night after to night to snack on! It is the perfect mix of sweet and crunchy popcorn!

Vanilla Almond Granola Popcorn Clusters

A great-tasting poppable granola snack! This delicious mix of air-popped popcorn and baked granola is packed with the goodness of whole grain oats and other powerful ingredients like flax seeds and roasted almond slices.
  • Fiber from oats and flax seeds
  • Made with Whole Grains
  • Non-GMO†
  • No Artificial Preservatives
  • No Artificial Flavors
  • No Artificial Colors
  • Zero Grams Trans Fats

Black & White Drizzlecorn™

“Do I want Dark Chocolate, or White Chocolate?” We don’t want to choose and you shouldn’t have to either. Our solution? We took our all-natural, fresh and crunchy Kettlecorn and then drizzled it with two luscious chocolate toppings: rich dark chocolate and dreamy white chocolate. Glad we could help. Enjoy and Munch Better™.

All flavors are available from the Popcorn Indiana online store

18 Rabbits

18 Rabbits is a family of organic, artisan granola and granola bars that are made from scratch and offer delicious taste and unique flavor combinations. All 18 Rabbits granola and granola bars are crafted from premium, responsibly sourced ingredients, including certified organic whole grains, nuts, seeds and fruits. 

18 Rabbits granola and granola bars are USDA Certified Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified and Certified Kosher. They have no fillers, additives, refined sugars, soy or wheat. All 18 Rabbits Jr. Bars are nut-free, making them school-friendly and ideal for allergy free environments.

I absolutely LOVED these flavors: Fig, Cranberry & Hazelnut Bar, Cherry, Dark Chocolate & Almond Bar, and the Cranberry Apricot Jr. Bar. But my absolute favorite was the Fig, Cranberry & Hazelnut bar! I reached for it whenever I needed a healthy snack!

This organic granola bar is made with Organic Figs, Cranberries & Hazelnut blended with Walnuts & TCHO Cacao Nibs. The sophisticated and one-of-a-kind blend of plump figs and sweet cherries makes this bar especially soft and succulent. With a touch of honey and walnuts, our Mediterranean-inspired snack will titillate your taste buds. Made with Veritas Granola, the added nutrition from flaxseeds and cacao nibs make it a breakfast or snack.
