3 New Products I’m Loving

Target Made to Matter

We’ve been picnicking up a storm this summer. The kids love eating outside at the park, and I love not having to clean my kitchen every 5 minutes. A win-win!

Of course, I don’t always have time to prepare traditional picnic food. So we often end up bringing a variety of fresh fruits & veggies plus some packaged snacks. When put together, these finger foods and snacks equal a pretty balanced meal.

One of the things that’s kept our picnic food more exciting lately is Target’s new Made to Matter line – a collection of natural, organic and sustainable products from more than 16 great brands. I’ve always loved treasure-hunting at Target (who doesn’t?), but it’s even more fun now, as I keep an eye out for new and exclusive goodies from many of my favorite companies.

Here are a few of the Made to Matter items we’ve been loving in our picnics lately:

Stonyfield grains and seeds yogurt

Stonyfield Super Grains and Super Seeds. Flavored Greek yogurt mixed with hearty whole grains and/or seeds, these are so good. No need to add granola, nuts or other mix-ins since these already have fiber and protein-rich “crunchies” right in the yogurt.

Cascadian Farm granola bark

Cascadian Farm Granola Bark. I’m a little bummed I didn’t invent this myself. It’s a genius idea and of course, ridiculously delicious. Just don’t open a bag of this stuff when you’re starving and/or picnicking alone.

Justin's nut butter and pretzels

Justin’s Pretzel and Nut Butter Snack Packs. We’ve all been dunking pretzels into nut butter for years, right? Now Justin’s has made it official, AND they’re making portion control easier with their new snack packs. I usually bring the Classic Almond Butter flavor for the kids (then eat the Chocolate Hazelnut packs after they’ve gone to bed!).


What are your own favorite Target buys? Any Made to Matter products you can’t live without?

This post is part of my ongoing partnership with Stonyfield. As always, thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. Thank you for reading and supporting my blog!

    I’m not sure if it’s part of the Made to Matter collection, but I swear by the Simply Balanced Organic Crunchy peanut butter from Target. It has ONE ingredient: organic roasted peanuts! No GMOs, no added sugar, salt, etc. It’s only $5.99 for 16 ounces, so it’s also a bargain!

    I’ve seen a product similar to that yogurt from Yoplait, but not Stonyfield yet (and a bummer because Stonyfield is my favorite brand). I was hesitant to buy it because I thought the grains might be soggy and/or chewy. But there’s really a crunch?!?

    Sounds like a good find! I’ll try it next time I’m there.

    It’s not crunchy like granola, but the buckwheat groats & seeds remain firm, which is what provides the crunch. The Stonyfield Grains yogurts are rolling out at Targets (only, nowhere else) nationwide so keep an eye peeled. I’d recommend the Maple or Vanilla ones if you like grains with texture!

    I’ve tried the Stonyfield Maple Quinoa & Buckwheat yogurt and it was awesome! I’ll definitely keep an eye for the other products, they all look great!
