Hormel Rev Wraps for busy families plus SWEEPSTAKES

August 4, 2015

My family and I recently discovered HORMEL® REV® Wraps at the grocery store. I am always on the hunt for easy snacks. I already have to make 3 meals a day. I don’t want complicated snacks! Plus, with all the activities we have and my on-the-go job as the editor of a newspaper, I want snacks that won’t get my car messy. And of course, I want something that actually provides enough food that the kids aren’t hungry again in 5 seconds. So, we bought a handful of the REV® Wraps. They are each in their own package, which makes grabbing them and throwing them in a bag super easy. Each REV® Wrap has at least 12 grams of protein so they are filling and help give kids (and mom) energy to head out to the next activity. The boys like theirs cold, but I like to warm mine up a little bit before I eat it. We found 4 different varieties at our local store, but there are 14 varieties of HORMEL® REV® Wraps total and there are REV® AM wraps for breakfast on the go. I have requested our local store start carrying the REV® AM wraps because I eat breakfast on the go every day! Check out all the different varieties here.

I appreciate the fact the HORMEL® REV® Wraps are made with real meat, real cheese, and are full of protein so it’s not just empty calories. As a diabetic, I have to be careful about the types of foods I consume. REV® Wraps fit into my daily balance for snacks. I also don’t want my kids to just eat junk for snacks because it’s easier. REV® Wraps allow me to give my kids an easy and nutritious snack. My kids snack all the time, especially during the summer. They are using a ton of energy to play outside all day jumping on the trampoline, playing zombie tag, swimming, and riding scooters. When it’s time to head out for karate, they need something to replenish all that energy they have spent. So we grab a REV® Wrap.

91% of moms and 85% of teens say it is important that a snack can be consumed “on-the-go” with no preparation needed. Also, nearly 8 in 10 teens who participate in extracurricular activities say having a snack before their activities or athletic practices is an important part of their routine* (*according to the global polling firm Penn Schoen Berland). My work schedule isn’t anywhere close to traditional. I often end up missing mealtimes because there is a new story to cover (an accident, fire, robbery, etc). When I need to rush out and be on scene as quickly as possible, I can just grab a REV® Wrap and it will hold me over until I can have a meal.

HORMEL® REV® Wraps just make our busy, on-the-go lifestyle easier to handle. About the power of protein: “Protein is responsible for more than we may realize. While it often gets credit for helping during periods of growth—childhood, adolescence, and pregnancy—it also plays key roles in metabolism, immune function, and tissue repair. It is found in every cell of the human body, so it is in our best interest to consume protein on a daily basis” (Jennifer Lintz, RD, LD).
