And these aren’t just for kids! Feel free to buy these if you’re an adult looking for snacks. They’re delicious enough for every palate. Here are the best new snacks to pack in anyone’s lunchbox.

For the Crunch Craver: Whisps Cheddar Pretzel Bites

If your child loves a snack with a good crunch, pick up these Whisps Cheddar Pretzel Bites. They’re a new take on the all-cheese Whisps. These have pieces of pretzel baked into the yummy cheese crisps. In our opinion, the addition of pretzel is a definite upgrade.

For the Dessert First Eater: Muddy Bites Milk Chocolate Waffle Cone Snacks

You know the chocolate-filled tip of a sundae cone? You know how it’s the best part? Well, this is that! You can have that crunchy, chocolaty bite without having to eat an entire sundae cone. They’re delicious, but they will melt in your lunchbox without a very effective ice pack. But your kid will probably eat them the second they get to school anyway.

For the Plant Based: The Only Bean Crunchy Dry Roasted Seal Salt Edamame Snacks

If you’re looking for a healthy and delicious snack that’s gluten free, vegan, and full of protein, look no further! These dried edamame snacks from The Only Bean are tasty and good for you. They also come in sriracha and Buffalo if you’re looking for a spicy version of this snack.

For the Breakfast Lover: Belgian Boys Maple Pancake Cereal

These little maple pancake bites are so cute and fun. Any child (or adult for that matter) would be thrilled to open up their lunchbox and find a Tupperware filled with tiny, bite-sized pancakes. These are also perfect if you need a quick breakfast on the go for your child to eat in the car. Who am I kidding? I’m thirty and want to eat these.

For the Gluten Free: Bobo’s Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Dipp’d Oat Bars

We love everything Bobo’s and their new Dipp’d Oat Bars are no exception. They are a great snack because they’re filling. They’re the oat bar is sweet and the chocolate dip is rich. The texture is unctuous and a little gooey. Plus, they’re gluten free! These could be eaten as a snack, breakfast, or dessert. You’ll definitely want to buy these.
