Gorton's Smart and Crunchy #Review and #Giveaway



So, after losing and gaining back 30 lbs over the last year, I am back on the healthy eating bandwagon. I am feeling really great about getting back to a routine, especially because I have gotten back to meal planning.The only real struggle I am facing is finding foods that are both parent and child approved. Enter Gorton's Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks and Fillets! 

I recently had the opportunity to review Gorton's Smart & Crunchy products. We were sent 5 full-value product coupons to purchase the products, an adult sized Gorton's apron, a child sized Gorton's apron, and an adorable plush toy of the Smart & Crunchy mascot, Smarty Crunchman.

We Were Pretty Excited to Get This Box!

If you are anything like me,  hearing the name Gorton's has you singing "♪♪ Trust the Gorton's fishermen ♪♪". Chances are that you have been enjoying Gorton's for years and you already know that their products are a delicious way to incorporate seafood into your diet. What you might not know is that with Gorton's new Smart and Crunchy Fish Sticks, you can enjoy the great taste that you expect, but with 50% less fat than their regular fish sticks and at just 180 calories per serving! 
Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks and Fillets are made with 100% wild-caught Alaska Pollock and are breaded with panko (YUM). Like their other products, there are no artificial flavors or MSG added to Gorton's Smart & Crunchy products and all of Gorton's seafood products provide a natural source of lean protein, vitamins, and minerals including iron, zinc, and vitamins A, B, and D. This is a huge score for parents everywhere; not only can you feed your children something healthy, but they will also enjoy it!


Now, if you follow the blog regularly, you've probably seen me mention how picky my kids are when it comes to eating. I try as much as possible to introduce new foods, but in addition to being picky, they can be as stubborn as their father I am. I can't tell you how many times I've heard little tummies rumbling while putting them to bed and it breaks my heart. 

I was pretty anxious (because of previous fish stick experiences with Drew) to see how the girls would react, and while they were baking it seemed like Drew might give me a hard time when it came time to serve them. However, both girls tried the fish sticks no problem and both girls actually ATE the fish sticks without tears, without drama, and even ended up asking for more! Cue the "it's a miracle" music. 

Drew Loves Gorton's


Reese Loves Gorton's Too! 


We enjoyed our fish sticks and fish fillets the old fashioned way, baked in the oven and served with veggies (at least for Matt and I). The next time we enjoy our Gorton's Smart and Crunchy products, we will be trying one of the recipes we found on the website. 

These 'Smart Lettuce Wraps' Are at the Top of My To Try List!
