Burst into Spring With Shoppers Drug Mart (Giveaway - CLOSED)




Whenever I'm preparing for a road trip, one of the items at the top of my packing list is always snacks. Ever since my daughter was a toddler she has required a constant stream of snacks. And heaven help me if I don't bring snacks in the car! (Not to mention I'm pretty "snacky" myself.)

Before a recent road trip to Kingston for my son's end-of-season basketball tournament, I headed to Shoppers Drug Mart to look for fun yet healthy snacks for the whole family. With the arrival of spring, there are sure to be lots more road trips on our calendar. I find that Shoppers Drug Mart is handy not only for snacks, but for whatever products we need for our trips - like shampoo, sunscreen, medicines - all that good stuff we constantly need to replenish.



For our weekend away in Kingston, I picked up a can of PC Whole Cashews. They proved to be the perfect tasty and nutrient-dense snack for those moments when we felt peckish in between meals. Cashews are lower in fat than many other nuts and their fat is mainly the heart-healthy monounsaturated fat that's also in olive oil. Cashews are high in mineral content too - copper most of all. Plus, a small serving of cashews provides you with 10 per cent of your daily recommended vitamin K (necessary for blood clotting).


I also picked up some PC Kettle Corn Sweet & Salty for a slightly more decadent snack that would satisfy our cravings for salty...and sweet. This kettle corn has no added colours or artificial flavours. You can feel good indulging in this snack knowing that three cups of popped popcorn provides one of your needed daily servings of whole grains. This kettle corn has a delicious flavour that satisfied my evening snack craving on our road trip weekend. Be sure to share with your friends and family to avoid eating it all by yourself though - it's addictive!

My Favourite Burst Into Spring Products



Now that spring has sprung (sort of!), Shoppers Drug Mart has plenty of new items on the shelves, as well as your old favourites. From daily necessities to exclusive and unique products for the season, you can get it all easily at your local Shoppers Drug Mart. We have a location just around the corner from us - and it's open late - so it's handy for us to pick up what we need on the run. While I was shopping for snacks for our road trip, I also spotted other products that we needed.



Klorane Dry Shampoo with Oat Milk is great for getting an extra good hair day without the need for a wet shampoo and all the styling that entails. It has plant-based active ingredients, plus it's free of sodium lauryl sulfate, cruelty free and vegan! I love the idea behind these KT Tape Pro Synthetic Strips. Any time we're heading out to a sports or dance activity I like to make sure I have a first aid kit and some items to help out with those inevitable bumps and bruises. KT Tape is a revolutionary new elastic sports tape that delivers pain relief and support for everyday injuries. Okay, this last favourite pick is looking ahead to summer (or at least a warmer spring!) - but who doesn't love to get a new sand toy set? You are never too old for this Licensed Sand Toy Set based on the movie Cars. Seriously, I would use it!

Earn Shoppers Optimum Points


One of my favourite reasons to make my household purchases at Shoppers Drug Mart is, of course, Shoppers Optimum Points. You get them on almost every purchase in-store. Shop on bonus points days and the points will add up even more quickly. Then you get to use them up to shop for FREE. I have earned hundreds of dollars of free products this way.
