10 Kid Snacks We Secretly Love to Eat Ourselves
Kiddie snacks we just cannot say no to...
Admit it: Who are you kidding? There are snacks you say you buy for your kids, which you secretly love and snack on when they are not looking. Did these make your list?
#1 Ice pops/Aiskrim Malaysia/Ice lollies
Whether you buy these or make them yourself at home, who can resist this on a really hot day!? Back in the days this use to cost 10 cents and come in a variety of flavours. I use to love the somboi one. Milo comes close too.
#2 Roasted Seaweed
These salty crispy morsels that are packed with all the goodness of the sea.. yum.. I can go through the whole pack myself while watching Korean Drama. There are so few pieces in one pack and the kids and myself wallop them so quickly that I’m always rushing to open another packet!
#3 Ice Gem Biscuits
My husband and I bought this on a whim, one day for old time’s sake and showed the kids what we use to eat back in the 80s. Unbashfully I will report that: Yes, we still fight for the sugar tips. Sorry kiddos, age is just a number.
#4 Cornetto Mini Chocolate & Vanilla
They are small and just the right size treat, even for a peckish mummy like me. If you manage to will yourself to only have one, you won’t have to feel too guilty about the calories. Don’t you just feel like some right now?
#5 Bin Bin Rice Cracker
Nothing like getting your MSG fix when snacking on these. I almost never buy these anymore because EVERYONE in the house loves them. Once in a blue moon, I would cave and buy one packet. The MSG high is real people. I actually get very happy and contented.
#6 Mamee Monster
This is like standard staple in almost any party pack or party favors these days. I help myself to my daughter’s stash which I hide in her “Special Occasions Only Snack” basket. Well…. they are almost expiring, I might as well eat them right?
#7 Fernleaf CalciYum
Is it bad when I sometimes use this in my overnight oats? I mean, who makes chocolate yogurt for adults? It’s always fruits or plain or something healthy.. pfft! Hardly ever in chocolate flavour !
#8 Chicken nuggets
Another culprit that I seldom buy because well, who knows how much dubious meat is in there, along with all the artificial flavourings that make this OH SO GOOD to EAT!! On the random occasion, or special moments when I allow my kids this, you won’t mistake me looking forlornly at their nuggets and fighting the need to sneak one off. Don’t even get me started on the fries.
#9 Yoghurt Melts
The picture above was used for attention grabbing purposes only. My personal favourite is the one with macadamia nuts. Garrett’s are only reserved for super duper special occasions, for when I want to indulge. So no, we don’t buy these. Cheapo me would just usually pop them fresh at home in my big kuali. I don’t make them sweet, I make them simple popped in oil and later seasoned with salt. I think of it as an alternative to chips. Air pop them you say? Sorry, no go. I like mine popped in oil.
