Summer Fun


Everyone loves summertime – so much to do and so little time. As a kid, my family really enjoyed going to the drive-in theatre at night to watch the latest movie. We would pack the car full of blankets, pillows and snacks. (I am sure that the friends that follow my weekly blog know how much I love snacks!) What better place to stock up on snacking essentials than your local SHOP ‘n SAVE? They have a wide variety of options to make your summer snacks delicious and affordable.

We all know what pairs perfectly with a movie… popcorn! My Nut & Honey “PoppyCorn” is easy and unique. It’s also made with wholesome ingredients that are good for you, too!

Nuts about you,
Chef Lisa
