Lance Captain’s Wafers Cream Cheese and Chives Sandwich Crackers

These are a different take on the classic cheddar cheese sandwich crackers and I love it. Cream cheese and chives? Yum! The mild flavor is perfect for the palate of a kid or an adult who likes to eat like a kid.

Stauffer’s Chocolate Animal Crackers

These were our favorite chocolate animal crackers we tried in our animal cracker taste test and they’d make an incredible lunchbox treat. They’re crunchy, chocolaty, and sweet. 

Van Holten’s Dill Pickle

Van Holten’s Dill Pickles are one of the best back to school snacks because they are an activity and a treat. On the way home from school, you give them the pickle in the bag and they can squish it around as a fun sensory exercise. Then, when you get home, you can cut open the bag, pour out the juice, and let them enjoy the pickle!

Kellogg’s Chocolate Dunk’d Rice Krispies Treat

If you want to surprise your kids with a real treat, get them one of these chocolate “dunk’d” Rice Krispies treats. They are a fun and decadent Dollar Tree snack. Just make sure you have plenty of wet wipes in the car for chocolaty fingers. Don’t worry! Dollar Tree sells those too.

Fiddle Faddle Butter Toffee Popcorn

Fiddle Faddle sounds like the name of an old-timey snack that you’d get at the 1893 World’s Fare. It’s actually just a tasty caramel corn-esque snack that’s a little sweet and a little salty. Peanut allergy-havers beware, though! This stuff is choc full of the legumes.
