The great “poet” Will Smith once wrote, “Summer, summer, summertime. Time to sit back and unwind.”

He’s full of crap, though. With all the family trips and birthday celebrations (pretty much everyone in my family was born in the summer), I do very little “unwinding” during the summer months. And in between all of that madness, I have to find time for good snacks.

During a recent trip to Walmart, I was on the hunt for a hot snack AND a cold snack. The requirements: They had to be easy and they had to be tasty. I found both with the purchase of some Hot Pockets and Edy’s Outshine Fruit & Veggie Bars (I also got some Edy’s Outshine Fruit Bars).

The Hot Pockets are a family favorite (for some reason, our little one calls them “spicy’s”). I picked up a value pack of 12 Pepperoni Hot Pockets, which were easily found in the snacks and appetizers aisle of the frozen foods section at Walmart.

In addition to being super easy to make, I really like how Hot Pockets uses quality ingredients like premium cuts of meat – like 100 percent Angus Beef – and real cheese. In addition to being tasty and hot, they’re also an excellent source of protein.

One aisle later, I found the Edy’s Outshine Fruit & Veggie bars and the Outshine Fruit Bars. The bars are infused with real and natural fruit ingredients and come in a variety of yummy flavors.  Fruit Bar options include 11 flavors like Lime, Mango, Pomegranate, Peach, and Pineapple. The Fruit & Veggie bars offer a taste of combos like Tangerine Carrot, Peach Mango Medley, and Apple & Greens.


I picked up some of the Strawberry Rhubarb Fruit & Veggie bars and Creamy Coconut Fruit Bars. The Strawberry Rhubarb Fruit & Veggie bars are made with strawberry, rhubarb, pear, apple, carrot and more. They’re an excellent source of Vitamin C, only 60 calories (and fat free!), and contain no artificial colors or flavors.

With my Hot Pockets and Edy’s Outshine Fruit & Veggie bars, I’m finally able to take Will Smith’s advice and sit back and do a little unwinding this summer. A whole 10 minutes yesterday … and it was heavenly.
