I’m not a wine expert, although I am a “whine” expert. As the mom of two young kiddos, becoming a master sommelier is not really in the cards for me. I drink what tastes good and I have no idea how to pair anything with anything. In the evenings, I often find myself sipping a glass of wine and munching on kid’s food leftovers like Goldfish crackers or PB&J.
I wrote a post this morning on Babble’s Family Style blog about a terrific Wine Moms Series giveaway event. You can enter to win a free one-month shipment which includes lots of savvy wine goodies as well as the vino itself. (Enter to win here!) I made a joke about what wine to pair with peanut butter & jelly or Goldfish crackers, because that’s my sophistication level. That’s when I found a few awesome articles on Real Simple and other sites, so I just had to share:
7 Surprising Wine Pairings for Parents Who Eat Kid’s Food:
1.) Peanut butter & jelly – Argentine Torrontes
2.) Cheerios – Nigori Sake
3.) Goldfish crackers – Riesling
4.) Fruit leather – Rosé
5.) Classic Cheetos – Verdicchio Di Metallica
6.) Slim Jim – Lambrusco
7.) Cracker Jacks – 10 year or older St-Joseph Blanc
Ah, now this is information you can use. Do you have any pairing ideas to share with us? Please do! Thirsty, snacking moms need to know.
