I was provided with complimentary Farm Rich products to facilitate this review. The opinions in this post are 100% mine. You can read my full disclosure policy here.
The new school year is just around the bend and I’ve got it in my head that I’m going to be more organized this year. Think positive, think positive. Meal planning and making sure I’ve got all the food I need on hand for dinners, packing lunches, and after school snacks always saves me time and money in the end so that is at the tippy top of my get-your-act together list. I don’t know about you, but we have one BUSY family during the school year. Two kids in soccer, I work in the evenings tutoring, homework, on and on and on. So as much as I love to cook from scratch when I can, it’s not feasible every night. Farm Rich snacks and meals to the rescue! These are delicious, easy to make, and there are so many varieties now your family is sure to find something they love.
I worked with Farm Rich once before and did this review of their mozzarella sticks and bites. They are awesome, perfect for an appetizer or some tasty game day or after school snacking. They reached out to me again lately to share with us that they’ve got 10 new products in stores now. And some of them are dessert. I have your attention now, don’t I? Just wait, we’ll get to that. I grabbed a bag of these Italian-Style meatballs and threw together the easiest meal ever: Pasta with meatballs and spaghetti sauce. My kids DEVOURED this. The loved the meatballs (so did my husband and I!) and did I mention how easy this was to make?
It’s a perfect meal when you’re in a hurry and could just as easily be served on some rolls for meatball sandwiches. Or, put them on a plate with some toothpicks and you’ve got an after snack. When I’m scrounging around for snacks and dinner at the last minute I’m all about versatility. These are the kinds of foods I want in my house!
Some of Farm Rich’s brand new products include Buffalo Blue Mozzarella Sticks, Pretzel Crusted Mozzarella Sticks, Potato Stick Crusted Mozzarella Sticks, Chocolate Cream Brownie Bites and Cinnamon Apple Pie Bites. Mmm…brownies. Actually these all look awesome. I will tell you I had a little trouble finding some of these newer products in my local stores, so keep your eyes peeled and I think Walmart is your best bet.
The other new products are found in the Smokehouse BBQ line which includes Pulled Pork BBQ, Pulled Beef Brisket, Pulled Chicken BBQ, Dry Rub Smoked Chicken, and Dry Rub Smoked Pork. This is the solution when your pressed for time to get dinner on the table. You can pop these in the oven or even microwave them for super fast prep. They look great, don’t they?
Look for Farm Rich in the freezer section at your grocery store. I would suggest, if you have certain varieties in mind that you want, checking their product finder. Walmart seems to be a safe bet if you’ve got one near you. These snacks and meals are delicious and EASY. I love having something quick that’s not fast-food to serve to the family on those busy nights when you barely have time to breathe.
