Top 10 Back-to-School Treats

Posted by Joshua Unseth on Aug 11, 2010 6:43:28 AM

  1. Cereal Bars

    This one's a no-brainer. This kids' snack is ridiculously easy to pack, it's way quicker than making your own batch of rice krispie treats or something similar. They come in all sorts of flavors, so the kid who finds them in his or her lunch won't get bored with all the flavors.
  2. Gushers!
    They ultimate in corn syrupy goodness, you'll find these on the pseudo-fruit snacks aisle. Is it solid, liquid, or something in between? Actually, it's all of the above.
  3. Raisins

    If the thought of buying Gushers made you cringe in fear of the next dentist bill, you might want to go with something more natural. Raisins are nutritious, and unlike fresh grapes, they keep for a long time. You can lay in a huge supply and have yummy, healthy snacks for weeks.
  4. Red Bull

    Ok, this one's obviously for the older students. That is, unless you really want to try teacher's patience.
  5. Pigs in a Blanket
    Once the kids are finally back in school, there's nothing a parent wants to do more than spend the afternoon cooking a fun, delicious snack for when the little darlings come home. Or not, so there's always...
  6. Pizza Rolls
    Even a six year old can probably figure these out. Zap, eat, enjoy. They might even manage not to make a mess with these things.
  7. Fresh Fruit
    There's only one main factor that determines what foods kids like to eat. That factor is sugar, and fruits are sweet enough to appeal to kids while being chock-full of vitamins, fiber and other nutrients.
  8. Popcorn Snack Mix

    Microwave Popcorn Lung notwithstanding, popcorn is surprisingly healthy when it's air-popped and not slathered in butter and salt. Add some other ingredients and you've got a great snack. Make it sweet with cinnamon sugar, some M&Ms and graham crackers, or take the salty route with pretzels and nuts.
  9. Chocolate Covered Stealth Health
    If it's got candy on the outside, the kids will love it. So give them chocolate covered healthy things - peanuts, raisins, almonds or even ants. Gross? Insects are actually very nutritious.
  10. Broccoli and Cauliflower
    Hey, maybe your kid is a vegan in the making. You never know. If not, there's probably at least one vegetarian kid at school who wants it, so long as they're not all desperately trying to trade their crunchy lunches for sweets.

Wholesale Week In Review (August 6)

The Psychology of Prices & Percentages in Promotions - August 6th, 2010

[browsershot url="http://www.getelastic.com/the-psychology-of-percentages/" width="150px"]

Which sale headline is more effective in attracting customers: “25%-50% Off” or “Up to 50% Off?” According to the market research of Dr. Flint McGlaughlin of Marketing Experiments, using the language of “Up to…” is more effective in attracting customers than using a range. The reason seems to be that customers focus on the lower number making the offer appear less appealing. Additionally, using the wording “From $50” is more attractive to customers than “$50-$100.” Using market research when crafting sales offers can assist marketers in crafting more effective advertising campaigns.

5 things you're wasting your money on

Posted by Joshua Unseth on Jul 29, 2010 5:52:22 AM

Frugal living is as much about what we spend our money on, as it is how to reduce the amount we spend. Common sense will tell us to clip coupons, shop sales ads, and buy generic brands as much as possible. But because life is hectic, our need for convenience can sometimes get in the way of common sense.
