As we gear up for Back to School season one of the biggest things on the list is finding good items to send the kids with in their lunch and also items to eat as after school snacks! This past week, I was reintroduced to a long time favorite of mine, Hot Pockets.
In the time before I was gluten free and before I had this website, I used to work in retail. As with many jobs sales is fast paced and very little time for breaks much less a lunch! So, in between clients I would heat up a Hot Pocket in the microwave and be able to eat it on the go while I was doing paper work or working with someone. It was a simple fix to keep my energy level up and get some food in me to finish my day.
Since starting this site, we eat a lot of homemade food now; however, just like every other parent in the world sometimes I get too busy and need something simple to fix! This week Hot Pockets came to my rescue.
I headed to Walmart to grab a few different varieties and was surprised that there are so many to choose from now. When I used to eat them it was a smaller selection. My favorite at the time were the pizza pockets which I had to pick up a few of those. I was also interested in the Pretzel Bread Hot Pockets. I grabbed a box of those too. I knew both my husband and son would enjoy them. I found the Hot Pockets in the frozen foods section near the snacks and pizza at Walmart. To see more on my shopping trip head on over to my Google + Story.
It was very simple to heat these up and serve them to my little man. I was very skeptical on if he would eat it or not, he is an extremely picky eater and rarely tries anything new. Much to my surprise, he not only ate it…he ate all of it! I think we may be on to something now. I thought these would make the perfect quick snack after his days at preschool or even in his lunch.
Not only are they great for kids, but my husband loves these because he is a truck driver and they are easy for him to eat on the go.
Hot Pockets made our lunch and snack time so easy! Plus, my son was a very happy little man because he loved what he called his pizza.
Head on over to Hot Pockets to find out more plus visit them on Facebook and Twitter at #HotPocketsSnacks.

Awww he is so cute and looks like he loved that Hot Pocket! What a great idea for an after school snack!
I love your pictures, they are so bright and colorful! And what a cute little man there!:)
I never thought of seeing if my 2 1/2 yr old would try them! He’s pretty picky too but he does like pizza so maybe… just maybe he’ll like these!
He looks like he really enjoyed the “pizza” – so adorable! There are many ways to enjoy Hot Pockets!!
