With school right around the corner (to the dismay of many children) there is a bright spot when it comes to snacking with Honey Maid Grahamfuls in Peanut Butter, Peanut Butter & Chocolate, and Banana Vanilla Creme. We live in an age where it is possible that children aren’t eating the best choices, especially when it comes to snacks and desserts so Grahamfuls are a welcome addition to the packed lunch by excluding the corn syrup. Overall they score pretty well on the health meter based on the numbers on the side of the box. Sugars and Sodium are pretty good and the calories seem reasonable for a snack. I am also a huge fan of sweet/sweet so with the graham cracker outside and the different sweet flavors inside, it has me hooked. Peanut Butter and crackers, you may have met your match. Let us jump into each of the flavors separately.
Banana Vanilla Creme GRAHAMFULS: Probably ranked number two in our household, this flavor had our two-year old eating it like a Oreo cookie. First getting all the wonderful filling out, and then eating the graham cracker part of the snack, which makes sense as the consistency of the middle is about the same as a Oreo cookie. I thought the flavor was actually a nice mix between banana and vanilla with neither flavor overpowering the other one.
Peanut Butter GRAHAMFULS: My personal favorite and wins the household title. Where I always thought the peanut butter and crackers were missing something, Grahamfuls brings that missing something to the table with the graham portion. As close to the perfect snack as I have tasted in a long time.
Peanut Butter & Chocolate GRAHAMFULS: While this version is tasty, probably not our favorite as it seems that the three flavors are battling a bit against each other. We were also not giddy over the taste of the chocolate. A good change of pace though if you want something a bit different.
Overall, Honey Maid brings a very strong showing to the snack arena, with a product that makes sense considering graham crackers are a favorite of kids. Partner that up with the fact that the snack does all it can do to stay as healthy as possible and you have a winner. An obvious addition to our pantry and our kids lunch boxes for the school year.
