Being a mom is like being a superhero. You’re always running around, doing a multitude of things, all while trying to be a good protector and inspiration for everyone, in this case, your kids. Motherhood is a full-time job and a lifetime responsibility, which means that while it can be fulfilling, there are certain moments when having a little trusty sidekick can help. This extra hand doesn’t need to come from a caped crusader though. Sometimes, they come in pocket-sized sizes—case in point: The Gardenia Pocket Sandwich.
Every on-the-go modern mom knows how important snacks are for kids. Unfortunately, preparing them can also be time-consuming and stressful, and that’s not even counting the worries about how healthy these are. Thankfully, the Gardenia Pocket Sandwich solves dilemma and offers so much more. This merienda-friendly, freshly-sealed sandwich developed by one of the leading homegrown bread brands in the country is the perfect best friend and partner-in-crime of parents who need the extra help when it comes to managing their children’s snack time.
Gardenia, which has always been an innovator in the industry, is the first to come up with this easy-to-bring, no-mess, and delicious bite that both kids and parents will love. The Pocket Sandwich comes in delicious flavors–made to appeal to every kid’s palate–and is always freshly made for ready consumption, hence saving busy moms the time they usually spend when preparing snacks.
Each Pocket Sandwich contains yummy fillings between loaves of creamy white bread. The local brand first made everyone excited after their range of kid-friendly flavours like Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Strawberry Pastillas, and Cheese. Being the industry’s innovator, however, Gardenia is upping the ante by adding two new variants with DOUBLE the flavors, no less!
Now, moms can also choose from the combo of White Chocolate and Blueberry—a sweet, luscious mix of blueberries and milky white chocolate— or the Raspberry and Peanut Butter duo, which mixes the sweetness of raspberry jam with the creaminess of peanut butter. These double flavors make snacking more exciting as kids can choose to combine both flavors by simply folding Pocket Sandwich or just eat one flavor after the other.
Another thing that makes these double-flavored snacks wonderful is that it gives mothers more options for picky eaters (we all know the struggle of having our kids get bored with just one snack in particular, right?) all while delivering healthy alternatives to other sugar-laden snacks that crowd the kids’ aisle of supermarkets nowadays. Similar to its first variants, Gardenia’s new double flavors are also laden with vitamins and minerals that are actually good for children.
Isn’t it good to know that Gardeniaconsidered the parents when coming up with Pocket Sandwich? Moms nowadays are busier than ever and Pocket Sandwich can make parenting a little more manageable. Besides being filling, tasty treats, the Pocket Sandwich also inspires a dynamic of discovery between parent and child. “When you save a few minutes of your time by skipping meal prep, you get more time to bond with your kids. You can discover more things about them, all without having to worry whether you’re really giving them good food. These snacks have vitamins A, B1, and B2 which are good for the eyes, and they are also high in iron which helps release energy,” said Mommy Kristine who made Pocket Sandwich a staple in her kids’ baon.
Being a parent can be a daunting task, which is why it is never wrong to have a little help every now and then. Said help can come in many forms and shapes, in Gardenia’s case, in square pieces of yummy sandwich bread that are convenient, healthy, and yummy. You can grab a pack (or twelve) of the new flavors of Gardenia’s Pocket Sandwich in leading groceries nationwide. Want to keep updated on all the exciting products of Gardenia?
