From the time my boys were old enough to eat real food, Pepperidge Farm® Goldfish® crackers have been a staple in my house. Starting from the days where we doled out handfuls, through to becoming a regular part of what we called "trail mix" (a mix of Goldfish crackers, toasted o's and puffs) and now, as an everyday part of their lunch at school that they have come to expect. Goldfish crackers are a happy childhood element in our home.
Goldfish crackers have accompanied us on many a park adventure, walks around the block, road trips, field trips, trips to Grandma's house, egg hunts, stockings stuffed and beyond. I have found Goldfish crackers and their crumbs in every crevice of my car, our strollers and life because they are a constant. I remember creating quiet shopping trips by handing a container full of Goldfish crackers to one of my toddlers in a stroller and being able to shop in peace as a result. Or being able to bribe a child into obedience with one of those little containers you can buy at most checkouts. Outside of diapers and bottles, I would say they are the most constant of memories in this household.
A regularly requested snack... Goldfish crackers. A real treat? Any variety outside of our usual "whole grain". My kids get the biggest kick out of buying any of the sweet variety or the special colored ones. It really wasn't until this campaign opportunity that I realized that Goldfish crackers really are a big part of my kids' childhood and definitely the most often purchased snack item. Just thinking about writing this post I realized all the memories tied to this snack food. I recall watching Goldfish crackers lined up for parades across the table, sorted into color groups, being used to learn counting and so much more.
