Juicy Gel Bar

On Saturday, we had a birthday party for Mr. 7 Year Old.  He actually turned 7 on December 28th, but when he was born right after Christmas, we made a decision that we would celebrate his birthday in June!  Not that we don’t acknowledge his birthday at all on his actual birthday, we do.  We buy him on small gift, and we have cupcakes and sing happy birthday.  But in June, he gets to have a birthday party for all of his friends to come and celebrate with him.  This works out great for all involved because at Christmas time, everyone is feeling stretched to the limit with their budgets, and their time.  So, to some people it may seem strange, but to us it makes perfect sense, and Mr. 7 Year Old loves celebrating his birthday twice!

We kept the party fairly simple by serving pizza, cake and ice cream, but we had a little fun with Snack Pack Juicy Gels by creating a little Mix in bar, and kids could choose fresh berries or fruit snacks to mix in with their juicy gel cups, and then add some Reddi Whip Cream and Sprinkles on top, for an easy to make dessert.  It was a hit, and fun was had by all!  I also purchased a couple of boxes of the new Snack Pack Pudding bars for the kids to throw into their treat bags to take home.

The kids had a lot of fun choosing their fresh berry mix ins.  

Here is what you will need to create a Snack Pack Juicy gel mix-in bar of your own:

Snack Pack Juicy Gel cups (I chose to use the Strawberry Flavor)
Fruit snacks
Reddi Whip

Create a Juicy Gel mix-in bar:

I just scooped the top layer of juicy gel from the cup and temporarily places it into a small bowl.  Add whatever fresh fruit you choose, and then place the juicy gel I removed back on top of the fruit.  Spray some Reddi Whip on top, add Sprinkles, and voila!  A fun treat that all of the kiddos enjoyed!

Snackpack Juicy Gels can be found at your local Walmart in the baking aisle, along with a gazillion other Snackpack products!  I also bought the wonderful ripe berries we used at Walmart.  They had a lovely selection to choose from.
