Review: Remember when you were young and peanut butter and jelly was one of life's most perfect foods? Well, it still is for many of today's kids. Yet they're bombarded with snacks that offer frosting, sprinkles, faux-fruit bits and all kinds of other not-very-nutritious ingredients. Into the fray comes Dippin' Snax, a single-serving tray of peanut butter, jelly and tiny rounds of a tortilla-like "fun bread." My girls, ages 4 and 23 months, loved it. There was more than enough peanut butter and strawberry jelly. When the bread was consumed, my oldest asked for crackers. The little one just used her fingers. Dippin' Snax, which comes with grape jelly as well, makes a great lunch-box, carpool or after-school treat.
