Snack Guilt-Free with Harvest Snaps! {Review + Contest}


This post was created in partnership with Harvest Snaps. I have been compensated for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

  For the longest time I could only find my favorite snacks, Snapea Crisps, at a single grocery store. I would have to make a special trip there every time I had a craving for these little green morsels. There must have been a pea-explosion recently, because I now see these delicious snacks everywhere I go!

  Life in the big city is one big adventure for Arnold. Living with his grandparents, who run the Sunset Arms boarding house, Arnold shares a roof with a diverse and unusual menagerie of characters (including his pet pig!). But as any fourth grader knows, some of the most memorable people you’ll ever meet are in school. With friends like Arnold’s (including storyteller Gerald, class jinx Eugene, sometime-bully Harold, and the tomboy Helga, who harbors a secret crush on our hero), you can be sure that he’s got some funny exploits to share with fans.
