We’re back this week from a trip to the beach. The beach is definitely my happy place. It always was but now it’s just so relaxing with my boys the ages they are – everyone just chills on the beach and does their own thing. My boys love the waves but they also love to just chill and read a book along with me.

We can spend hours at the beach as a family. Of course when you’re at the beach all day, you need snacks and goodies to tide you over!

This year I packed a beach bag full of CVS Gold Emblem Abound snacks. I’ve been working with them for a little over a year and the Abound line is definitely my favorite of all their snacks. It’s the “healthier” line – nuts, gluten-free goodies and more are some of the things you’ll find.

I’d like to say I shared the Cranberry Almond Rice Pop Clusters but these were pretty much all mine in the end. I love these things – they are so addicting. Here’s Cole with them before I stole them away:

This trip, the kids were all about the Sea Salt Flavored Baked Rice Crisps – even my boys friends loved eating these. I was psyched because I got them on sale too – I often find great sales in CVS so make sure to check your local aisles to see what’s on sale at yours:

By the way, I also love these Greek Yogurt Covered Raisins. We didn’t eat these this trip because I thought they might get melty on the beach with the sun but these are awesome to have in your purse for a quick snack.

This Cranberry Orange Almond Crunch was tasty and great for the beach (no melting!)

And I wasn’t kidding about the sale and the great prices. Be sure to check the aisles of your local CVS for some of the Gold Emblem Abound

    Haven’t found one I haven’t loved. I love their nuts!!! The quality is better than any brand out there.
