Editor's Choice: Partners

Like many of us, I’m always on the lookout for midday treats that can be stashed away in a desk drawer. That being said, I collected several samples during our recent mission to the Sweets & Snacks Expo. One of the “finds” is the selection of Get Movin’ products ( from Partners. I recently tried several from my stash.

The bite-size Olive Oil and Sea Salt crackers have a nice crunch. They have a full, rich taste, even though they are low in fat. The package says they are all natural, so it’s something you can feel OK about. And the 0.75-oz. bag is the perfect size for a midday snack or maybe even as part of a small meal. They are also available in Honey Wheat, Olive Oil and Sea Salt, Four Cheese Multigrain and Roasted Garlic and Rosemary.

Besides the selection of crackers, the company also has a group of Get Movin’ cookies. The Cinnamon Crisp was the next tasting. Again, the cookies are bite size. The cinnamon is sprinkled on top, so you can have that nice texture and burst of cinnamon flavor, then the rich cookie part. Again, they are all natural and another great midday treat. The cookies come in 1-oz. bags and also are available in Chocolate Vanilla Swirl and Lively Lemon.

As I said, a fine addition to the snack drawer and with the good weather finally here, they are the perfect size for a take-along treat to enjoy outdoors as well.
