Save Your Spoons By Packing Mott’s Snack & Go Portable Applesauce Pouches


My kids are pretty picky eaters. And I’m going out on a big limb here but I’m betting a lot of other parents feel the same way. It’s crazy how food-focused we are as a society where every meal can be super stressful. The worst, though, has to be going on vacation or road trips with the family.

Allie always seems to pack a duffle-bag or two full of snacks for the kids no matter where we’re going. It’s a little tougher than normal for us because of Jason’s nut and seed allergies, so we definitely want to have something safe on hand for him. Yeah, no granola bars or trail mix for these kids. But you’ll find plenty of cookies, pretzels and chips in that bag to quiet the constant “I’m hungry!” whines from the backseat. (Okay, fine, and from my seat too…)

While we’d love to bring all sorts of fresh cheese or yogurt with us for the kids, it’s tough to do, even if we bring a cooler with us. If it’s a long trip, that’d never work. And most hotels we stay at don’t have mini refrigerators. So finding a healthy, portable, non-refrigeratable snack for them is not as easy as you’d think.

Thankfully, we’ve got the Mott’s! (Any of you guys remember those awesome commercials from the ’80s?) The king of applesauce has done it again with the new line of Mott’s® Snack & Go applesauce. These portable applesauce pouches come in a variety of flavors (I was sent Natural and Strawberry-flavored applesauce pouches to try out) and best of all are completely portable!

Each pouch is soft and small enough to easily carry with you on a short trip to the mall or a longer trek to grandma’s house for a sleepover! The neat thing about them is the big yellow cap on the top of each pouch. Simply twist it to open and then squeeze the pouch to enjoy. If for some reason you don’t finish all that appley goodness in one shot, you can put the cap back on and toss it in the fridge for later.

From a health perspective, applesauce is loads better than a handful of chocolate chip cookies or even pretzels. These Mott’s snacks have no sugar added and I was shocked to see that the first ingredient in these Snack & Go applesauce pouches is… apples! It sounds ridiculous but with so many processed foods on the market, it’s not too common to see a natural main ingredient like that being listed first.

While these Mott’s® Snack & Go applesauce pouches are perfect for kids, I have to admit that they’re great for adults too. Allie tried one and loved them so much she’s snacking on them regularly herself!  Considering how everything needs to be portable these days (DVD players, video game systems, etc.), snacks that are easy to bring with you are a total necessity if you have children.

Obviously portable snack pouches are also the perfect thing to pack in your kids’ lunch bags. You just know they’re going to drop a spoon on the floor if you pack one. (And if you haven’t had your second cup of coffee yet, you may’ve even forgotten to pack one!) Yep, a completely self-contained portable applesauce snack is the perfect solution for an easy, healthy snack on the go.

What portable snacks do you pack for your kids?


Mott’s® Snack & Go is the nutritious applesauce kids love in a squeezable pouch they can take with them wherever they go. Mott’s is also the only applesauce brand with Box Tops for Education®, helping to support kids’ schools. Visit to learn more.

    I bet my children would love these.
    We tend to eat a lot of goldfish crackers. Not too healthy.

    Coolers work in hotels with ice machines if there are no mini fridges, you just have to change the ice and dump water!!!^_^ I grab lots of plastic silver and recycle when done with them!!!^_^

    Love the idea, but my kid’s school insists on garbage free lunches… good for the car though.

    I like that you don’t need a spoon because I do not even know how many spoons my girls have lost. The school grounds must be covered in lost spoons , coats, shoes etc. my girls don’t go to school anymore so at least my spoons are safe lol. I can see that they must be good your kids seem to like them:). Thank you for sharing with us:)

    Back when I was a kid…we ate applesauce with a spoon and we liked it!! 😉 As an adult, I think these are just weird. I’m grossed out by eating applesauce from a pouch. Kids sure do love it! And I’m sure it can be a lifesaver with little ones. Mine are grown now and feel the same way I do as far as being grossed out by eating applesauce from a pouch. That being said, I do have a pack of Gogurts in the freezer right now to see how they end up. I’m thinking a “push-up” type frozen yogurt? I’ll see how it works. 🙂

    Wow, I have been totally out of the loop. I did not know that they make applesauce in different flavors. I need to try the other flavors and I love the idea of these little pouches. You’re absolutely right, these snack pouches are not just for kids. Thank you for this review.

    These pouches are such great ideas. They didn’t have them when my monster, I mean child, was younger. Mott’s has always been the only brand of applesauce we ever bought.

    I like this, can’t say how many spoons have never made it back home!

    I was always really grossed out by the concept of Gogurt, but I do hate dealing with spoons in packed lunches…

    That is a great idea. And I think it is something most kids, no matter how picky they are, would like

    I don’t know who invented these little pouches but they are tops in my book! I love being able to keep these in the diaper bag for when one of my kids get hungry and want a snack.
