It is so hard to believe that Summer is coming to a close. My two sons will be going back to school in less than 10 days. Time has gone so quickly, and I am not ready for another harsh winter.
I think this Summer has hit me harder than usual because we started looking at colleges for my oldest son. I know that this Mom is taking it really hard. But don’t tell him that, I wouldn’t want to embarrass him by being mushy. After all, he is a junior in high school now.
But, hey, I can’t help it. I AM a Mom, after all.
But since Summer is still actually on the calendar, we decided to take advantage of it. If you are new to my blog, you will find that my family and I absolutely adore the Wildwood beaches in New Jersey. It is are absolute favorite family vacation, and one we look forward to each and every year.
We decided at the last minute to take a day trip to the beach this coming weekend. It is amazing how less painful a work week looks when you have something to look forward to on the weekend. Time with the family is very important to me, and being able to spend it together in our favorite place makes it even more special.
But since we are just headed there for the day, I wanted to make sure that we didn’t have to spend a lot of money while on the Boardwalk. The solution? Packing a cooler with snacks we bring from home.
I have to tell you that Walmart is definitely my “SNACKATION” destination. I loved how I could find everything I needed for my trip in one spot. I know I wanted to take an old favorite, and take it up to the next level. And finding these Smucker’s® products certainly helps!
I have to share that peanut butter and jelly is one of my absolute favorite sandwiches. It brings back warm and fuzzy memories of my childhood, and these products are what my boys grew up on.
So everyone is familiar with the classic peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Since this trip is out of the ordinary, I want to make it even more special by adding a new flavor. And Jif has given me the perfect extra ingredient:
Yes, Jif Salted Caramel Hazelnut is the star of my upscale peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I did have a hard time choosing which flavor I wanted because, let’s face it, there are 3 AMAZING flavors just staring me in the face. But choose I did, and the Salted Caramel Hazelnut is the star of my sandwich. Thanks Walmart, for making it so easy to shop and save!
So want to know what will be in our road trip cooler bag? Here is our list:
- Peanut Butter, jelly, and Salted Caramel Hazelnut sandwiches
- JIF® TO GO® DIPPERS™ with pretzels
- Smucker’s® Fruit-Fulls in Apple for youngest
- Bottled water
- Iced tea for Mom
I am so excited that we can take this day trip, and have all these great snacks from Walmart. We can spend more time making memories instead of spending a lot of money on food.
