Holiday Party Essentials from CVS

I love to entertain guests, especially for the holidays, but I don’t always have the time to prepare homemade snacks for us. Instead, I opt for delicious ready made goodies like the ones CVS sent me to try from their Gold Emblem snack line. Not spending a lot of time in the kitchen means that I get to spend more quality time with my guests this holiday season.

Check out these great party essentials from CVS!

All of the Gold Emblem snacks were delicious, including: Select Habanero BBQ Almonds (they pack just the right amount of heat), Peanut Butter Filled Pretzel Nuggets, Gold Emblem Air Popped Butter Flavored Popcorn, and Gold Emblem Ginger Snap Cookies. CVS also has Total Home Premium Dinner Napkins and Decorated Paper Plates to take care of all your party needs.

The best thing about trying these Gold Emblem snacks from CVS, is knowing that all I have to do is pop into my neighborhood CVS Pharmacy to recreate this for my next party.

disclosure: CVS sent me these products to try. All opinions are my own.
