[msg. 21+] This is a sponsored post and may contain affiliate links. All opinions are mine. In my family, summertime is synonymous with firing up the grill. We have a system when it comes to cooking during the summer. My husband mans the grill and I make the sides and dessert. When I saw the current Garden & Grill BabbleBoxx, it was like it was made for the two of us! Here is my unboxing video with the help of my daughter Caitlin.
New RITZ Crisp & Thins
Caitlin’s favorite were the New RITZ Crisp & Thins. We received the Bacon, Sea Salt, Salt and Vinegar and Cream Cheese & Onion. We took them to the water park. They were the perfect snack! They have the same richness of RITZ Crackers, but are a thin and crispy, oven-baked chip. I love that they have half the fat of the leading potato chip. These new Ritz are my New snack! The 7.1 ounce bags retail for a suggested retail price of $3.69. Single serve packs are also available at convenience stores for a suggested retail price of $1.49.

Mario Camacho Snack Olives
Next are the incredibly tasty Mario Camacho Snack Olives. They make the perfect healthy snack on the go! I love them on their own, in a salad or in a very dry vodka martini! You can choose from four delicious flavors; Garlic, Savory Pepper, Sea Salt Green, and Sea Salt Ripe Olives. These easy to grab and eat snacks are low carb and have zero cholesterol. They are individually packed without the brine, so there is no liquid mess! Each snack pouch has only 60 calories! Print a money saving coupon on their website or Facebook page!

Green Giant® Baked Beans
I was so excited to see this new product! We love to serve baked beans when we grill out. To know a brand I trust now makes them makes me very happy! The Green Giant® Baked Beans are slow-baked to perfection and just in time for summer! The new products are available at your local Food Lion, Schnucks and Giant Eagle. These Green Giant Baked Beans are cooked in iron pots and brick ovens to capture their rich flavor. You can find them in Original, Maple, Vegetarian and Country Style varieties.

Newman’s Own Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Sauce
I have been a huge fan of the Newman’s Own brand for years. I love that 100% of the profits go to charity. It makes you feel good about purchasing their delicious dressings and now their Sweet & Spicy Barbecue Sauce. My husband could not wait to get his hands on this new sauce to baste on our chicken tenders. We had it last night for dinner and it was absolutely delicious! It has no high fructose corn syrup and is made with only the highest quality ingredients like cane sugar and back strap molasses. It retails for $2.99 and is perfect for grilling, dipping and marinating. Not sure where to buy your favorite Newman’s Own products? Just use this store locator for the retailer nearest you!
Newman’s Own Citrus Splash Dressing
I cannot tell you how much I love this Newman’s Own Citrus Splash Dressing! I used it in my Strawberry Chicken Salad Sandwich Wraps this week. The kids just loved them! The refreshing flavor is a fruity blend of citrus flavors. It is perfect for your summer recipes. You can use it as a dressing, dip or marinade. It is really great as a chicken or pork marinade! You will get a myriad of flavors in the dressing from lemon and lime to tangerine. You won’t find any artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives and it is Kosher certified.

SVEDKA: Limited-Edition Party Bottle
And finally! The star of my Vodka Infused Watermelon Granita; SVEDKA Vodka! I am a vodka girl, so this was a huge treat for me! I was super happy to let my husband man the grill while I had a nice cold vodka martini with a packet of the Mario Camacho Snack Olives! Don’t you love the festive bottle with it’s colorful stars and stripes BOOM on the packaging? If that doesn’t say summertime and Fourth of July, I don’t know what does! It is perfect for your summertime entertaining and my Vodka Infused Watermelon Granita! Or you can make your own SVEDKA’s signature cocktail. If you aren’t familiar, SVEDKA is the #1 Imported Vodka in the US. Ask your local wine and spirits store if they have theirs in stock! Stay connected with SVEDKA Vodka on Facebook and Instagram.
