After School Snack Time with State Fair Corndogs


My son has such a huge appetite for such a little guy. At 7, I’ve seen him eat a whole footlong meatball sub, and then look for more food. And he’s a skinny kid too. It’s incredible. I mean how can a 55 lb kid eat as much as a grown man. And is his appetite going to double? Possibly triple by the time he’s a teenager? Oh my!


At least for now I can satisfy his hunger when it’s at it’s worst: after school. I have to be sure that either I have food ready for him, or something in the freezer that can be heated quickly. His favorite treat is a State Fair® corndog. And I love them too. They’re one kid food that I can never pass up. They make the perfect after school snack because they’re easy for us to microwave quickly and pair well with other fruit and vegetable snacks.


I like to serve these delicious corndogs with a honey mustard dipping sauce and fresh apple slices and grapes. I’ve also served them with celery and carrots and also orange and pear slices. I always make sure to include lots of fruit or vegetables to make sure he’s eating a balanced snack. This gives him the fuel he needs to do homework and for some after school playtime in the backyard.


State Fair® corndogs come in a 22 count package at Walmart where they are always available at an Every Day Low Price in the freezer aisle. My son knows just where they’re located too. Having a large package of corndogs means I always have enough to feed a crowd too, you know just in case friends or teammates come over after school. Kids are always hungry!


State Fair® corndogs are a good source of protein. And did you know that they are the original corndog from the Texas State Fair! Talk about authentic!


I got a great value at Walmart on these State Fair® corndogs. You can also find delicious breakfast solutions from Jimmy Dean® products. We also love Pancakes & Sausage on a Stick, and also the Jimmy Dean® Sausage, Egg & Cheese Croissant Sandwiches for breakfast. They are a great way to start the day, especially when we’re running late, because they’re ready so quick!

Make your morning easier!

    My kids and my husband just love Corn dogs. As you recommend this brand will definitely try it! I try Fosters Farm and Morning Star and I was very disappointed.
