It’s hard keeping things consistent as a parent—if I’m not letting the kids break rules at times, there’re rules I’m breaking myself. Don’t talk while you’re eating. Say “please” when you ask for something. Don’t talk to strangers. Eat your cauliflower. It must be confusing as a kid, trying to make sense of the world, but little is ever black and white.
But sometimes you have times where you don’t have to overthink the rules, and you have something that’s fun for the sake of it! And that’s exactly what Whippet wants us to remember with their new Whippet Sticks—that sometimes it’s okay to play with your food!
When is a Snack Not Just a Snack? When it’s a Whippet!
The newest entry in the Whippet product lineup, Whippet Sticks take the chocolatey goodness of Whippet Originals and add delicious chewy centres for a brand-new treat! Currently available in coconut and brownie, they aim to put the fun back in food culture without adding too much of the stuff that makes us feel guilty as adults. There’re no trans fats in each serving. They’re made with real chocolate. The coconut sticks use real coconut, and they all have no artificial colours! And if you’re like me with a little one weeks away from starting school, you’ll be happy to know they’re peanut-free! All in all, they’re wonderful little snacks if you’re looking for something quick to nibble on.
Whippet dares us to play with our food, asking “How Do You Whippet?” across their line of Whippet foods. With moves like the Sumo Squish, Marshmallow Twister, and the Brownie Tug of War, they show the silly side of snacking with various ways to mould and shape your Whippets into entirely new creations!
Win Some Whippet Sticks of Your Own!
We had a little fun with it in Casa de Palmer, creating everything from Whippet moustaches to little Whippet rock piles—we even added a couple to some Dutch chocolate ice cream to create a killer dessert! They can be a lot of fun, and hey—you could try them too! One lucky Canadian’s winning themselves some Whippet Sticks so they can figure out how they Whippet—and it doesn’t take much to make it happen! As with all Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad contests, it only takes a click and a valid email address to enter, but your chances improve dramatically if you explore the additional entry options! Many will enter, but one will win—why not do what you can to make sure that “one” will be you? Good luck! (Contest open to Canadians aged 18+. Contest ends 9/15 @ 11:59 PM ET.)
Whippet Sticks — Because You Deserve to be Able to Break a Rule or Two!
Some would say that rules are meant to be broken. You can totally wear white after Labour Day. And no, you don’t have to use I before E except after C. That’s right, even when it’s not sounded as “ay”—weird, right??? What I’m saying is this—as kids, we learn plenty of rules, but we don’t need to follow them all forever and a day! Whippet wants us to rediscover the fun we had in our childhoods through their whimsical Whippet Sticks, and hopefully, you too get the chance to whip up some creations of your own!
And at the very least, if you don’t come up with anything mind-blowing, you could always make what my toddler did—a mess.
Good luck to all who enter, and until the next, I remain,
