This is right around the time I have to admit that summer is winding down. Sob.

It’s truly my favorite season and August doesn’t disappoint. Generally July is a mixed bag of birthday celebrations and full camp schedules, and all of that tapers off in August. This year, we got a puppy in late May, so our June and July have been pretty puppy-centric. We did pile the two dogs into the van for our annual trip to Cape Cod, and now we look to August for some excitement. August is your chance, people! This is your time to shine. This is your time to break out the last minute, late summer bucket list. Or it’s time to write one. And make sure, as always, that there are plenty of snacks along the way.

Our August Bucket List:

1 – DO something with all those berries we picked earlier this summer. I’m thinking galettes, pies, giving them away, canning, jamming, and my true favorite – putting fruit on a cracker with accompanying cheese, dip, peanut butter, etc.

2 – Go to a local amusement park. We have so many! Bonus points for an amusement park with a water park too. The road trip is part of the fun, so we’ll make sure to have plenty of snacks to share during the ride, and also while at the park.

3 – Go to the town or county fair. We have quite a few of them in August and they’re always a special occasion. School bus demo derby, ferris wheel, games and prizes. Plus, road trips and picnic opportunities to share snacks!

4 – Go to a children’s museum. There are really good ones in New England in Boston, Connecticut, and even in Vermont. We used to go to them as kids! I remember the long mountainous road trips, and the awesome snacks that my mom packed us.

5 – Go to a drive-in movie. There is one somewhat near here and one near our beach house. I’ve never been!

As you can see, snacks are pretty much what it’s all about. And we get incredible NABISCO snack options from Walmart. These snacks help us to make summertime memories with each other. You can’t forget yumminess for August nights.

And my kids are always there to make sure I get the good ones.

5 Reasons OLOMOMO Nuts are the the Perfect Snack

This post has been sponsored by OLOMOMO. All opinions are my own!

OLOMOMO Nuts are the perfect snack for daily life and road trips. They are made sustainably and have unique and delicious varieties. #ad

Sometimes. Often. I really love work. Like when I get to taste test some delicious snacks!

Olomomo is pronounced O-LO – MO- MO. Of course! Basically they create healthier nut snacks and try to have a low impact on the environment as well! The founder set out to start a company that could leverage market forces and help make a positive impact on society. This is the first nut snack company to clear the bar for B Corp Certification. And OLOMOMO is committed to developing a fair and healthy work place, as well as a supply chain and operations that are healthy for the environment, AND, for all of the people involved at every part of the process. And now, let’s talk about the nut snacks!

I’m currently munching on the Sea Salt Vinegar and I had a blast tasting all of the varieties. I love Applewood Smoked. Cassidy likes the Cherry Vanilla. That’s a new one! Cashews. Almonds. Pecans. YUM. I have 5 reasons to love them!

1 – They are perfect for road trips, and we take lot of those in the spring, summer, and fall.

2 – They have a wide variety of nuts and flavors – from sweet to spicy to savory – and you’ll find one to love.

3 – These nut snacks fuel our many adventures, and give us the boost we need to do 13 hours at theme parks.

4 – OLOMOMO Nuts are protein-packed, gluten-free, healthy fats, non-GMO, and use organic ingredients when possible. They have low or no sugar, low or no salt, and simple, whole food ingredients. No artificial flavoring or preservatives.

5 – They have big plans for the future. Fair trade sources for nuts are quite limited, but OLOMOMO will be working on developing more fair trader partnerships, and using other fair trade and organic ingredients whenever possible.

They strive to find the best raw nuts in the world. They buy Almonds from trusted co-ops in California, Cashews from Ecuador, Viet Nam or India, and Pecans from various producers in the US. Pecans are the United States’ only native nut!

So, which flavor do you most want to try?
