I partnered with this brand in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
One of the coolest collaborations I have ever seen is between Sensible Portions and DreamWorks’ Trolls. Both brands are unique and make people happy. Just like Sensible Portions Garden Veggie Straws help families fill their bellies with happy snacks, DreamWorks’ Trolls help families find their happy places!
Two weeks ago I headed with my family down to Lincoln Park Zoo to check out the Sensible Portions Chicago Snacking Station Event and we had a blast. Bags of Sensible Portions Veggie Straws featuring DreamWorks’ Trolls were given out in all three flavors: Sea Salt, Zesty Ranch and Cheddar. We had never tried Cheddar before and that is my kid’s new favorite flavor! These straws, are made with veggies, have 30% less fat than a regular potato chip, are non GMO and gluten free.
With all the talk about Trolls, my kids were so excited that it finally arrived at theaters for us to go see it. Luckily my kids had a teacher institute day at school so we headed to our local movie theater for matinee showing. I ended up taking a few extra kids as well.
What did we think of the movie Trolls?
We all absolutely loved it! The movie is amazing and I’d actually pay to see it again. From the amazing animation to all the songs sung, yes, there is a lot of singing, the movie had us entertained. There are so many memorable moments too in the movie that my kids have started imitating the characters. I honestly couldn’t pick a favorite Troll either, as there are so many awesome ones. I wish I would have kept all my troll dolls from back in the 90’s as I now want to collect them all again!
I will say too sometimes animated movies don’t have a good storyline, but this is not the case with Trolls. It is a great story of friendship, adventure, working together and happiness. I really liked the happiness theme as it showed that you don’t need things to be happy but rather it is within you – something especially important with the upcoming holiday season.
While we didn’t get to enjoy our Sensible Portions Veggie Straws during the movie, my kids did ask for them as a snack when we got home! I think the movie reminded them of Veggie Straws (and now probably vice versa!)
