Portable Snack Packs are Making it Easier for Busy Families to Get their Fruits and Veggies

March 15th, 2021 · No Comments

Take a moment and run through your family’s daily schedule. Get up; get the kids ready for school while getting ready for work; drop the kids off at school; head to work; pick the kids up and bus them to their extracurriculars; get home; make dinner; help with homework; get the kids to bed; get yourself to bed. Then, repeat the next day. With this busy, non-stop schedule, when do you have time to prepare a healthy snack. That’s where our portable snack packs come in. With a variety of healthy options, you’ll never get bored and everyone in your family will find snack options they love!


The Importance of Fruits and Vegetables in Your Diet

From childhood, we’re told that eating our fruits and vegetables are important. But do you know why? Here are just a few benefits of getting your daily dose of fruits and veggies:

• They can protect against cardiovascular problems

• Fruits and vegetables are a great source of fiber which promote healthy digestion

• Fruits and vegetables which contain carotenoids improve eyesight and protect against age-related eye diseases

• They can protect against metabolic disorders such as high blood pressure and dyslipidemia

These benefits aren’t exclusive to children; it’s just as important for adults to eat their fruits and vegetables.


Why is it So Hard to Eat Healthy?

With all of these amazing benefits, why do we find it so hard to eat healthy? It’s not necessarily for a lack of trying. Often the problem is a lack of time. According to food writer, Bee Wilson, what we eat is intrinsically linked with our lifestyles. Busy lifestyles have led to issues of not having time to cook a healthy, well balanced meal, or even not having time to eat at all.


What Can You Do to Eat Healthier?

While encouraging healthy eating in your family or finding more time to dedicate to meal prep are big issues to tackle, portable snack packs can make it a little easier to make sure everyone in your family has access to healthy, delicious snacks.

Whether you’re busy driving from work to school pickup or your kids are going from class to basketball practice, Dippin’ Stix portable snack packs can go with you. With a variety of fruit and vegetable options paired with decadent dips, you can enjoy a satisfyingly healthy snack that keeps your team fueled up while getting a much-needed daily dose of fruits and vegetables.

If someone were to force you to eat your broccoli or spinach without a little incentive or maybe a dash of spice, you’d probably say “no way!” At Dippin’ Stix we understand, because we’ve been there when it comes to healthy eating and snacks, and we know that apples, celery, or baby carrots aren’t among the tasty items found in the munchie aisle of your local store.

We’re all about irresistible combos. You’ll have to admit that a combination of fresh, crisp apple slices and caramel, peanut butter, chocolate, or yogurt sounds pretty tasty.

They come in 5-pack cartons, which means you can plan ahead for a week of snacking or mix and match different cartons in order to have something healthy, but a little different to look forward to depending on the day.


Kara Stevens is trying to eat healthy on a budget and gives us a thumbs up:

…”I really LOVED these grab-and-go Dippin’ Stix healthy choices and they were only $1.00 each. I bought 10 for the week so I could plan out my work week and have two to eat each day: one for my midday snack and other for the afternoon snack…I can spend a $1 on healthy snacks instead of a $1 on a bag of chips. #Noexcuses”

Healthy Snacks are Good to Go

December 13th, 2020 · No Comments

There, in easy-to-carry nearly three-ounce packages, were these convenient, handy snacks called Dippin’ Stix. As it turns out, they’re just the right size for quick and healthy snacks. As someone once said, an apple a day keeps the doctor away, and believe me, the package of apple slices won’t drive you away in boredom. Not a chance! And, if the apples slices weren’t already perfect on their own, they come with a sweet reward for a treat that can’t be beat.

The tasty twist you’ll come to crave is the variety of combinations for Dippin’ Stix. Imagine being able to dip those apple slices into caramel, peanut butter, or fruit dip. But wait, there’s more! There are also little turtle-shaped chocolate caramels to sweeten the deal!

With lots of taste tempting goodness in every package, you’ll have to agree they’re just the right size for enjoying on the spot, taking with you for fun, or for that much needed break at the office or home. Kids will love the combinations, and you’ll be glad to see them enjoying fresh fruit instead a nutritionally empty, sugary, high-calorie snack.

Lots of healthy goodness paired up with, you guessed it, tangy ranch dressing.

Healthy Snacks Never Tasted So Good!

September 19th, 2020 · No Comments

Dippin’ Stix are such a good health snack that you’d probably eat your broccoli if we came out with a variety featuring the tree-like, crunchy vegetable. Okay, maybe that’s a stretch, but you get the idea; our Dippin’ Stix wizards have conjured up some irresistible combinations that are healthy and nutritious, and your taste buds are in for a real treat!


Rather than broccoli, Dippin’ Stix are huge fans of apples; naturally sweet and juicy red and green apples. The kind that stay crisp, crunchy, and are good to go with the dip of your choice. Did you say you thought caramel was a good choice? How about peanut butter? There’s also chocolate, but just to switch things up, there’s a twist. Chocolate covered caramels in the shape of a turtle! How are those apples? Pretty darn good, if we do say so ourselves.


If you’re more of a veggie traditionalist, we haven’t forgotten you. There’s nothing more convenient than a handy pack of carrot sticks ready to be dipped into ranch dressing. It’s the flavor alternative when your sweet tooth isn’t demanding immediate satisfaction, and it’s still head and shoulders above the flavor fun to be found, or not, in broccoli.


All of these healthy snacks come in convenient packages which are sold in 5-pack cartons. Perfect for that break at work, in-between school classes, or whenever you want something to munch on that isn’t too much, and in most cases, just the right size.


Dippin’ Stix are a low-calorie, low-fat alternative to most of the snacks you find in stores. They’re packed with all that nutrients and healthy goodness you’d find in an ordinary apple or carrot, but in a much more portable package. We challenge you to sample all the flavor-favorite varieties we’ve created! Dippin’ Stix; just pick ‘um, dip ‘um, and enjoy!

Fiber, Fun, and Five Chances to Enjoy a Healthy Dippin’ Stix Snack Pack

August 20th, 2020 · No Comments

You can’t start healthy habits too young, and with Dippin’ Stix, it’s easy to begin. The kids are going to need a snack this fall when they take a break during their online courses or classroom learning. There are plenty of sugary, unhealthy choices, but they don’t come in a convenient snack pack and offer up a serving of fiber.


Let’s face it – fruit and veggie slices all by themselves are, in a word – boring! They may or may not get eaten because they’re missing something extra, something that would take them to another level, something that could really tickle your taste buds.


Dippin’ Stix knows what you’re up against, and we’ve created tempting combos you can find neatly packaged in easy-to-carry snack packs. Instead of a messy and a potentially bland snack, there are plenty of healthy, nutritional flavor choices. A combination of fresh, crisp apple slices and caramel, peanut butter, chocolate, or yogurt are something even the most pickiest of eaters will find appealing.


All of this goodness is packed in convenient, nearly three-ounce pouches, which are individually wrapped to seal in freshness – we’ll just call them snack packs. They’re just the right size to carry with you on the go or to put in your lunchbox for later. They come in 5-pack cartons, which means you can plan ahead for a week of snacking in one flavor, or you can mix and match different cartons to have a healthy, flavorful variety to look forward to.

Who wouldn’t want the convenience and the flavor selection that comes automatically with Dippin’ Stix?  While you probably know that an apple a day does wonders for keeping your dentist at bay, you probably never envisioned a snack like Dippin’ Stix. Virtually no one would disagree with the idea that apple slices and baby carrots are good for you. But what Dippin’ Stix does with these health foods makes them more than merely enticing snacks for kids. Mixing apples and chocolate or apples and peanut butter, for instance, creates snacks that are guaranteed pick-me-ups when you need a little boost of energy to get you through the day.


We suggest you allow your taste buds to investigate all of the eight flavor varieties of Dippin’ Stix that are waiting in a produce aisle near you.

It’s the Flavor That Kicks at Dippin’ Stix

June 29th, 2020 · No Comments

Eating apple slices and carrots all by themselves is good for you, and let no one tell you otherwise. But when they’re mixed with a dash of fun, convenience, and a whole lot of flavor, they become Dippin’ Stix.

There are plenty of ways to snack these days and lots of appealing choices, but rather than having to run off to the store all of the time to find something good, Dippin’ Stix have a special edge. They combine the classic flavors you grew up loving with something to nibble on that doesn’t have to be eaten in a day or two. Matter of fact, you can buy them in packs of five and they’ll be ready when and where you are.

It’s a convenient thing when you consider how many of the choices you find down at the local mini mart are stale or wilting within a day and on a heavy discount, if they can still be sold at all. Not so with Dippin’ Stix, where big flavors and perfect freshness are preserved in small packages and the snack you crave is ready when you are.

It’s a good thing if you find you’re spending a lot more time at home these days and stopping by the refrigerator for you or the kids more often than you care to admit. Make it your opportunity to try all five flavor varieties of Dippin’ Stix. Do you like apples with caramel, peanut butter or fruit dip? We’re also betting you can’t refuse the classic combination of baby carrots and ranch dressing.

Enjoy the Dippin’ Stix flavor you like the best or mix and match for even more variety. You know that extra daily servings of fruits and veggies are good for you, and we make it easy to satisfy your cravings and tempt your taste buds! Dippin’ Stix; just dip and enjoy!
