Hot Pockets Make A Great After School Or Anytime Snack #CBias

With school right around the corner for two of my grandsons, I thought it was a good idea to start having some after school snacks on hand. My five year old grandson is about to start kindergarten and my two year old grandson is starting preschool. I know these little guys love to eat and going to school is sure to work up an appetite on them.

I headed to my local Walmart to pick up some back to school snacks for the special days that I take care of my grandchildren after school. The boys love Hot Pockets, and I really love how good they are and easy to fix. In fact, everyone in the family eats them and the Pizza kind is the family favorite. I think I'll buy some different varieties also this time because Hot Pocket come in so many choices.

I decided to stock up on Hot Pockets while I'm here at Walmart, but who knows how long theses will last! Hot pockets really are great snack ideas, and I love how they contain 8 essential vitamins and minerals and zero trans fats. I am buying a good selection today because not only are they a great after school snack, but are so handy for an anytime, on the go snack as well.

I got together with my daughter and her family and of course my grandsons asked for a snack! These guys love to eat and I love to feed them. So with all those Hot Pockets in the freezer, I knew it was going to be an easy choice. They do appeal to kids and parents because they taste great and are so easy to fix.

My son-in-law takes them to work and heats them up in the microwave for lunch sometimes. We love the BBQ Beef variety, and the Chili Cheese kind is something we've never tried before

Good thing I bought a lot of Hot Pockets so that I will have some left over for our after school snacks.

It was such a beautiful day that we went out on the deck to enjoy our Hot Pockets. I made three different kinds and I bet we will like them all! Lemonade and a little salad made our snack even more fun, though my grandsons don't eat much salad. #HotPocketSnacks
Summer will be winding down soon and the boys will be very busy with kindergarten and preschool.

My grandson loves his Pizza Hot Pocket, and even tried the BBQ Beef variety. This is big for him because he thinks he will only like the pizza kind. I told him I had more Hot Pockets to eat on our special days after school for him and his brother. He was pretty happy about that!

I do like how easy Hot Pockets are to fix, and this can be a big time saver for busy moms on the go.

We are so excited about this little guy starting preschool. He loves eating and loves his snacks. He had two helpings of Hot Pockets and then asked for more. He loved the Chili Cheese kind!

This picture goes to prove adults love Hot Pockets too. My daughter is trying the BBQ Beef flavor and she said it was great. We had a nice afternoon and enjoyed the kids playing on the deck.

Hot Pockets come in dozens of varieties and can be part of an easy to fix breakfast, lunch or dinner, or anytime snack. So if you are sitting at the table or eating on the run, remember that Hot Pockets are an easy and delicious snack.They can be found in the frozen foods section of Walmart and other retailers.

Back to school is coming soon and it looks like I better go back to the store for more Hot Pockets!

  2. Patricia, I'm loving the new look! And I'm loving the photos in your post. Great job!

  3. I didn't see those Limited Edition varieties at my Walmart. I know I hubby would love those BBQ Back Burger ones.

  4. I didn't see the limited edition ones at my local store but the chili cheese hot dog one sounds like something that my youngest daughter would love!

  5. The weather looks perfect for an afternoon snack on the deck!
