Kelly Fitzpatrick, publisher of Macaroni KID Armonk - Chappaqua - Mount Kisco - Pleasantville, N.Y., enjoyed a snack of Bamba with her daughter Fiona during a break in their busy day. She liked the simplicity of this tasty, oven-baked peanut butter puff, which is made with just four simple ingredients.

"It's hard to find snacks that are both kid-approved and nutritious. Bamba checks both boxes, which is a huge win!" she told us.

Dip, Dip, Hooray!
Why settle for just the puff? Dip Bamba in chocolate, Nutella, caramel, or jelly for an extra layer of deliciousness.
It's yummm to the max!

Laura McElwain Colquhoun, publisher of Macaroni KID Pasadena-Severna Park-Glen Burnie, Md.shared Bamba's goodness at a winter fest. "Parents were thrilled about the low sugar content, and many likened them to peanut buttery cheese puffs," she shared. One guest was so impressed she went bulk shopping for Bamba!

It's not just the 1 gram of sugar per bag that parents love: Bamba is also gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, has no artificial flavors or colors, and includes 5g protein per serving.

Nicole Torretti, publisher of Macaroni KID Enfield, Conn., is all about the natural ingredients in Bamba. "Bamba is simplicity at its best!" she says, confessing to keeping a secret stash for herself. Shhh!

Kelly Kerr, publisher of Macaroni KID Owens Cross Roads - Scottsboro, AL, introduced Bamba to her daughter, who declared it "so so so super yummy!" That's high praise from this 3-year-old connoisseur!

Cookie Suarez, publisher of Macaroni KID Buckhead - Midtown - Brookhaven, Ga., passed out bags of Bamba at a Jewish Community Center event in her town. The visitors to her table were enthusiastic about the beloved product, which originated in Israel in 1964 and is the leading snack food produced and sold there. They told her how glad they are that Bamba is now available in American stores. You can find Bamba in the Baby Aisle at Walmart, Walgreens and Target ... but if you're like us, you'll love this easy, on-the-go snack no matter your age!
