Thanks to my partners at Smithfield for sponsoring this post.

We’re a family of snackers. So when my friends at Smithfield asked if I would try their brand new Ready, Snack, Go! products, I said a very fast, “YES!”

6 varieties of Ready Snack Go on ShockinglyDelicious.comWe do eat three meals a day, but there are times when each of us needs a boost.

  • My husband needs a snack when he comes home from work, to bridge him until dinner.
  • My son needs a substantial snack after school (granted, this might look like an entire meal to someone else, but a 14-year-old considers it a snack). Then he needs an additional snack to tide him over from the big snack until dinner.
  • Both of them need a fast, protein-packed snack after they finish a surfing session. They emerge from the waves ravenous.
  • On sports nights, my husband needs a portable snack after work to fuel him through a workout until he gets home late for dinner. This can’t be a cookie or chips…it has to be protein.
  • I get up at 5 a.m. and eat breakfast, so by 10 a.m. I need a protein snack or else I am likely to raid the kitchen seeking carbs.  I just need a little help before lunchtime, so I don’t succumb.

Surfing son and his friend with protein snacks on ShockinglyDelicious.comAll of us have found that a protein snack is one of the most satisfying things you can eat, to get you through the hangry episode and to keep you on the straight and narrow and away from the vending machine or the sweets drawer at home.

Smithfield’s Ready, Snack, Go!, new in stores now, answers all these needs and more. It’s a perfectly flavor-balanced combo of sliced Smithfield lunchmeat wrapped around a hunk of fresh cheese. Each individually-wrapped package has 8-10 grams of protein, 100 or less calories, and is gluten-free and nut-free, which makes it lunchbag-approved for schools that have allergy policies against packing nuts.

On days when I pack my son a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, his favorite, I will throw a Ready, Snack, Go! in as well, so he has something to eat at morning nutrition break.

On my own gym days, I’ll throw one in my purse for afterwards, so I am not tempted to stop at the fro-yo store.

Make a lettuce wrap meat and cheese roll from Smithfield's Ready Snack Go on ShockinglyDelicious.comOr wrap a leaf of lettuce around it and call it a leafy green protein snack!

There are six varieties, so no snacking boredom looms.

  • Smithfield Smoked Ham & American Cheese
  • Smithfield Smoked Ham & Hot Pepper Cheese
  • Smithfield Smoked Ham & Swiss American Cheese
  • Smithfield Roasted Turkey & American Cheese
  • Smithfield Roasted Turkey & Hot Pepper Cheese
  • Smithfield Roasted Turkey & Swiss American Cheese

I eat this quite often for a snack, and I’m glad to see they are in portable packs, for when I need to grab and go!
