I’m going to need you to try them yourself. In my endless quest for fun after-school snacks and/or desserts, I constantly think about what flavors go well together. I’m really into the cheesecake flavor, but since I’m not a huge cream cheese fan, I try to see what I can do with Farmer’s Cheese or Ricotta. That’s one of the reasons these crescent roll snacks are SO GOOD! Now I have two kids, so of course I buy Welch’s Fruit Rolls. They’re awesome! We get ours at Walmart and Stop & Shop, but you can also get them at a number of locations near you, like Kroger, Publix, Ahold, ShopRite, Albertsons, Safeway, Price Chopper, Delhaize, Foodtown, HyVee, Giant Eagle, Tops, and Stater Bros.
The thing is, we have a BIG vacation week coming up. When I think of spring break, I always smile, because there are such feelings of joy and freedom associated with it. Since we often stay home for spring break, we make a special plan for each day of that week. On one day, we always go to a farm in the Berkshires and have a picnic. We always bake something together. And if we’re lucky, we visit family or maybe see a nice beach. There are always opportunities for adventure, and there are always reasons to buy our go-to snack of choice – Welch’s Fruit Rolls. What can I say? Fruit is the first ingredient!
Why should you make my Berry and Cream Stuffed Crescent Roll Snacks? They’re so delicious. The cheese is just enough sweet/salty but SUBTLE to make the Welch’s Fruit Rolls taste stand out. Also, the Welch’s Fruit Rolls bake wonderfully. Not only do they get soft and tart, but that softness lasts – even if you leave the snacks out for a bit. We learned that the hard way, but I’m really glad we did. Welch’s Fruit Rolls are our go-to choice for spring break vacation. Not only do they have 100% of the daily value of Vitamin C, they have 25% of the daily value of Vitamins A & E! As I said above, fruit is the first ingredient. It’s a delicious taste the whole family loves, and that heartily includes Cassidy and me. We know what to buy.
What’s really fun is the form! When you unroll the Welch’s Fruit Rolls, you unroll the fun. You can’t not smile when eating food by the roll! They’re bright and colorful, and full of flavor. As a mama of two, I love options that are good for two lunch boxes, two school parties, two after school snacks, and spring break for two! Honestly, I am SO excited for fun in the sun.

My love of Welch’s started long ago, before I had kids. Now that I have two grade school kids – for the first time EVER – I get especially connected to brands that make our loves better and brighter. I almost cried when I first bit into one of my crescent rolls. They really are that good! That deep flavor is so fruity and yummy and filled with dough. I’m so excited to share it!
