In school, snack time was always one of the best parts of the day, besides lunchtime, recess, or gym class (obviously). Thinking back to your time in grade school, what did you bring for a snack? Were you lucky enough to bring pre-packaged snacks like Cheez-Its® crackers, cookies, or fruit snacks, or did you bring fruits and veggies, crackers, or organic snacks that your mom made? Either way, there are many different snack foods on the market that might remind us of childhood in one way or another. So let’s reminisce on some of the most favorable snacks you had as a child. Who knows? After reading this, you might begin to consider adding them to your office’s breakroom for everyone to enjoy, even if they are considered “too old” for them now.

Some of the classic pre-packaged snacks that were enjoyed throughout many people’s childhoods can include Kellogg’s Rice Krispies Treats bars, specifically the homestyle version. The original version of this beloved snack is delicious, but the Homestyle version can help bring back memories from childhood. These soft and chewy bars made of crispy rice cereal and marshmallows can remind us of the times when making homemade crispy rice bars for various holidays, birthdays, or even an after-school snack.

Since Kellogg’s introduced the homestyle version of this snack food, they have been flying off the shelves. It seems that people really like the homestyle version because the taste and texture remind them of when they were younger. It’s funny that people’s preferences can change based on the feeling they get when enjoying this snack, especially if they didn’t have to make it themselves. Now that there’s a homestyle version on the market, you can enjoy this nostalgic treat anywhere – even in the office.

Another great snack or breakfast food that can be nostalgic for some is Froot Loops! Having a variety of single-serve cereal cups at work for people to munch on can be a delicious part of the day – with or without milk. This classic breakfast cereal brand can bring back memories of weekend mornings watching cartoons, sleepovers with friends in grade school, or late-night snacking in college while studying. For some fruity goodness when you need it most, “Follow your Nose” straight to the breakroom for this delicious breakfast or snack.

Pop-Tarts are also a snack brand that can remind us of our younger years. Some of the best childhood snacks come with flaky dough, a luscious filling, and sweet frosting on top. Luckily, Pop-Tarts come in a variety of flavors, so you’ll be sure to please everyone in the office. Having these popular snacks in the breakroom along with a toaster is sure to bring happiness and joy to many employees.

Last but certainly not least, we have Kellogg’s Grahams Tiger Bites featuring none other than Tony the Tiger! These sweet and delicious graham crackers quickly became a popular choice for parents to buy at the grocery store for their children to take to school because of the familiar character on the bag. This sweet treat is a beloved snack for both children and adults. They can be found in many, vending machines, convenience stores, as well as breakrooms in office buildings. Just because they are shaped like zoo animals, doesn’t mean adults can’t enjoy them too!

Known for more than just cereal, Kellogg’s is home to many different brands of snack foods. So the next time you are replenishing the breakroom, think about your childhood favorite snacks and how much your employees and co-workers would enjoy having them at work too. Everyone deserves to treat themselves, so why not stock up on the best “school” snacks for adults? You’ll thank us later.
