The month of October is full of fun events! Last week, we highlighted six special occasions to celebrate by snacking. Each occasion we mentioned, such as Vegetarian Awareness Month and Celiac Awareness Month, focused on a special type of healthy eating. As we all know, balance is important, and October also happens to be a time to indulge your sweet and salty snack cravings! Here are four more occasions to celebrate by snacking:
Each of us has our favorite type of dessert. Some of us love to finish off a good meal with a few squares of pure chocolate. Others like feeling like a kid again by eating the marshmallow bits you find in cereals or savoring the nostalgia of old-time candy. Maybe you even prefer to keep it simple and freshen up with a few melt-in-your-mouth dessert mints!
2. National Cookie Month
Crispy, chewy, or crunchy cookies are a satisfying treat! Try our classic Chocolate Creme Cookies, or start getting your tastebuds ready for winter with Holiday Shortbread Cookies. You can even buy crushed cookies for ice cream toppings or milkshake mix-ins, and bake your own cookies with our cookie mixes!
What can we say about caramel besides YUM? You can enjoy this sweet, sticky, buttery treat in so many ways. Go the classic route with wrapped caramels or caramel creams. Those who are crazy for salted caramel will want to try Salted Caramel Nut Fudge and Milk and Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramels. You really can’t go wrong!
4. National Popcorn Month
