Squoosh: Candy Alternative This Halloween {Review & Giveaway}

squoosh

Be truthful, how much of your child’s Hallowe’en candy do you just end up chucking because you don’t want them eating all that junk? Or worse, do you eat it yourself? This Hallowe’en why not give a healthier treat?  We are going to have Organic Squoosh by Go Gourmet to hand out to all the little ghouls and goblins. photo P1080751_zpsgmqlnsts.jpg

With Hallowe’en being on a weekend this year I am sure little trick-or-treaters will be hitting the streets a little longer than a weekday.  I am going to pair the Squoosh with small bottles of water to create a little on the go snack that parents know won’t make their little monkeys hyper-er* on an already crazy night!

Each pouch is one full serving of fruit and is intended for all ages.  Also, there is NO added sugar.  With all the great fruit flavour mixed with vegetables there is no need to add any extra sweetener.

We received three great flavours to sample:

Beetberry-banana, apple, beet and blueberry

Orangobango-mango,banana, apple and carrot

I have to admit I hadn’t previously considered handing out something like an organic fruit/veggie puree before but as a parent I know my kids would really think it was a great treat.  As you can see Smashie is a big fan!

Have you passed out pouches before for Hallowe’en??

 

THE GIVEAWAY

Win it: One lucky Canadian reader will win a Squoosh prize pack, including three 12-packs! (Approx $30 value). Enter to WIN via Rafflecopter below. Good Luck!

*How is hyper-er not a real word???  Moms and Dads have all experienced going from a simple episode of ‘I had a single M&M and am now dancing around the house dressed in only one sock and nothing else’  to Stage 2 ‘I AM EATING CANDY AND RUNNING AROUND DRESSED UP AS A NINJA TURTLE PAST MY BEDTIME’ hyper.  Clearly one of those examples is hyper-er than the other.  Mr. Webster I have made my case.

Disclosure: I received a sample of a product to facilitate my review. No other compensation was provided and all views and opinions stated on this post are 100% my own

    We don’t celebrate Halloween so my kids aren’t dressing up as anything. Their favourite costumes are ones they make to be characters from their favourite shows and books.
