Slammers - Organic Snacks Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.
 
Halloween is coming up, and it's a favorite holiday among kids.  For one night, kids get to be whoever they want and stay out late.  Halloween is also the first in a series of fall and winter holidays dedicated to decadent treats and unhealthy foods.  Although that's okay in moderation, there are options available that are healthier and fun at the same time.
Slammers Snacks are tasty, greek yogurt snacks designed to fuel kids with organic fruits and vegetables.  They are a healthy alternative to sugar-laden candies and other franken-foods that pop up around this time of year.  Each flavor introduces kids to fruits such as mangos, acai, yumberries, kiwis, and pomegranates, and serves as a great source of essential vitamins.  Two flavors of Slammers Snacks introduced this year also come packed with seven grams of protein.
Niece, Gia, enjoying Slammers Snacks
 
Slammers come in four squeezable pouches per box.  Some kids balk at fruits and veggies, but the packaging of Slammers is genius enough that kids want to try them.  The pouches have kid-friendly designs, with neat graphics on the front and pictures of the fruits and veggies on the back.  The way they work is that the caps twist off and the kids eat right out of the pouch.  I liken Slammers to having the same consistency of applesauce.

The two flavors of Slammers we tried were a big hit at my house.  The Pomegranate Grape Crush variety contains coconut, pomegranate, apple, grape, banana, and purple carrot.  It's an unlikely combination but actually tastes good.  The Awesome variety beets, acai berries, bananas, blueberries, strawberries, and amaranth.  I'd never heard of amaranth before, but did some research and learned that it has high nutritional value and has remarkable protein content.  All of the ingredients in Slammers come from certified organic farms and contain no added sugar or artificial ingredients.  I think Slammers are a clever way to get kids to eat the good stuff.
Win It!
 
One person will win a case of Slammers in flavor of choice.
