Your Childhood Favorites Reimagined: Lucky Charms Bars, Birthday Cake Pop-Tart Bites & More

Nov 20 2020
On a recent trip to Walmart, we found a whole bunch of eye-catching products: food finds that are fun twists on treats we loved as kids. Um, yes, please! We grabbed a bunch and flipped over these four…

General Mills Soft Baked Bars in Lucky Charms and Cinnamon Toast Crunch

1 bar: 90 - 100 calories, 3.5g total fat (1.5g sat fat), 70 - 75mg sodium, 16g carbs, 1g fiber, 8g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 4*

These bars are like blondies that took inspiration from your favorite sugary cereals. The Cinnamon Toast Crunch flavor is good, but the Lucky Charms one is GREAT! And we love that they're individually wrapped servings... much less tempting than having an entire open box of cereal around!

ICEE Freeze Tubes

1 tube: 60 calories, 0g total fat (0g sat fat), 0mg sodium, 15g carbs, 0g fiber, 12g sugars, 0g protein -- SmartPoints® value 3*

YES, that's right: These frozen pops are inspired by the slushie drinks you can find at movie theaters, convenience stores, and fast-food shops. This box features both Cola and Cherry Cola flavors. In a random twist, our box mysteriously had a bonus regular Cherry flavor as well! These are totally reminiscent of the classic slushes. If you miss your favorite frozen movie concession, this is a great at-home swap.

Pop-Tarts Bites in Frosted Confetti Cake

1 pouch: 150 calories, 4g total fat (2g sat fat), 160mg sodium, 29g carbs, <1g fiber, 16g sugars, 1g protein -- SmartPoints® value 7*

Anyone that loves birthday cake will LOVE these -- they're mini pastry bites filled with frosting! The flavor kind of reminds us of old-school Dunkaroos. And once again, we SO appreciate the portion-controlled packaging. This is a totally fun sweet snack or li'l dessert. P.S. You can order them on Amazon!

Cap’n Crunch’s Berrytastic Pancake Mix

1/3 cup mix (approx. two 4-in. pancakes): 160 calories, 1.5g total fat (0.5g sat fat), 460mg sodium, 33g carbs, <1g fiber, 9g sugars, 4g protein -- SmartPoints® value 6*

PEOPLE. These pancakes are so good, they earned Lisa’s “I wish I could eat these every day” seal of approval! They taste just like Cap’n Crunch and are totally delicious with or without syrup. Are you a Crunch Berries fan? Grab a box of this mix ASAP. No additional ingredients needed -- just add water!
