This year the kids are in a new city and new school. While I am normally the mom throwing the new school year celebration as soon as they walk out of the door–in the peace and quiet of my silent house, this year I was sad to see the summer break come to an end.
I admit that I was nervous for them. The school is twice the size of our old school. The teachers are all new to them. We left a little community to a seemingly massive one since the new school is a kindergarten through eighth grade school.
So to mark the new school year, I wanted to celebrate with them. Where we used to live, we’d visit one of two shops. Both had yummy non-dairy treats that weren’t glorified slushies. But we’ve moved 45 minutes away and everything is a bit of a trek from our house. Luckily, it turns out that our local RaceTrac’s Swirl World has several non-dairy options.
My youngest is allergic to dairy. Her friends feel so sorry for her because she has never tasted real ice cream. But normally she has sorbet or alternatives that are just as delicious. (I taste them to make sure!)
I love that frozen yogurt shops have popped up everywhere in recent years but many of them don’t have any decent non-dairy offerings.
We were totally surprised by how big a selection RaceTrac’s Swirl World has to offer. They had three different non-dairy flavors for Pea to try. She liked them all but really loved the Bomb Pop sorbet….because it tasted just like a bomb pop! They had twice as many dairy options for Pork Chop and me. And I am pretty sure Pork Chop put a little of every flavor in his cup then covered it all with chocolate syrup.
Plus, I wanted to try my luck again with the #Wintastic App that I told you about last month.
The app is easy to use and there is a 1 in 3 chance of winning! You simply show the cashier your phone and have her scan the barcode on the app. You’ll find out right away if you win. We lost the first time we tried the app. But this time, not only did we score some awesome fryo and sorbet, I won a free cheeseburger!
It was a lot of fun! If you are in Florida or Georgia check out the Wintastic Rewards App and all the snacks RaceTrac has inside.
How do you celebrate with you kids?
