Goldfish Crackers making snacking and smiles easy #GoldfishSmiles Giveaway



Every single time we go to the grocery store my youngest insists on getting a package of Goldfish crackers! This picky eater loves the Cheddar ones most. We have tried the others but they are her fave by far.

Last week we had an unexpected fog day and the kids were home from school. A fog day means that buses are cancelled and the kids are home from school. When these days are unexpected, they are often boring for the kids. I figured it was the perfect time for little one and me to enjoy a snack and a movie. We enjoyed watching her original Disney Cinderella movie and ate a yummy party mix I mixed up.

Goldfish party mix

  • Chocolate chips 1/2 cup
  • Goldfish Cheddar crackers 1 cup
  • Goldfish Pretty in Pink crackers 1 cup
  • Popcorn (microwave) 2 cups
  • mini marshmallows 1/2 cup

Add them all together in a large bowl and mix around. Serve in small individual bowls. This colourful treat is sure to make smiles for your kids too.


Suddenly our boring day got a little more fun. I think making this party mix was just as much fun as eating it 🙂

Goldfish crackers are a fun snack to add to soup, casseroles, snack mixes, chili and to eat on their own. They are also so fun to play with and tasty to eat the possibilities are endless. My daughter loves to play tic tac toe with these cheesy little guys as the pieces.

Goldfish crackers are baked with REAL cheese, contain no artificialcolours or flavours, have 0 trans fat and are low in saturated fat –so, you can feel good about eating your favourite snack that smiles back.

Goldfish crackers are the original soup cracker, but can be enjoyed in so many other ways. They’re a fun and wholesome way to make celebrating life’s little moments simple.
