smelled like syrup and there made with whole grain

By 

from Undisclosed

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

I always bought little snacks for my son as he got older, I remember buying these Gerber graduates maple cinnamon little crunchies. I would only give them to him when he would finish all his food. This was more like a treat for him, these little snacks are light and they resemble a puff. There made with whole grain so they were healthy for him to eat. They smell like syrup to me, they are a little sweet but there great because my son learned how to pick up these finger snacks on his own. I sometimes took these on the go for him, I think there safe for any child especially if there already grabbing things. There easy on the teeth so there not hard for him to chew. They were easy for him to swallow and digest without choking. I would definitely recommend these to any mother out there to try if your looking for something different. These are inexpensive to buy so there affordable to purchase. I always found these at most drugstores and grocery stores.

Gerber Graduates cinnamon twists are great!

By 

from Sneads Ferry, NC

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

When my son started solid foods, I really enjoyed letting him experiment and try different snack foods! I love the Gerber Graduates line of snack foods because they're made especially for kids in his age group so I know they will be easy for him to eat and digest. One of my sons favorite snacks was Gerber Graduates maple cinnamon lil crunchies! He would eat these like they were candy which was fine because they are healthier then a lot of other snack foods offered and I know they are made with high quality ingredients. My son loved the taste of these, they taste like a healthier less spiced version of the cinnamon twists from Taco Bell. They were easy for my son to chew and swallow and they never gave him any tummy troubles. These are also great when we were on the go because they don't make a huge mess like Cheetos and there's no preparation required! I would highly recommend these for young kids, they're delicious and healthy!

Great for toddlers

By 

from USA

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

A good crunchy snack, these are easy for little fingers to grip and hold. Toddlers love to munch on these. Very helpful with learning your little one to feed themselves and taste that they want more of. I alway bought these for my boys when they were that age. This was there favorite mid-morning snack and afternoon munchie.

Smells so good

By 

from USA

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

The first thing I noticed when I opened these, were how incredibly good they smell! Baby food has a tendency to not smell appetizing whatsoever, but these have a great smell. Maybe that isn't a big deal, but considering I have to smell what my baby eats around me, it is a bonus for me. The texture is really light and fluffy, it dissolves super easy which I like since my daughter doesn't have a ton of teeth yet! They are a bit messy, and can make crumbs, so maybe not the best for traveling. My daughter seems to really like them though and enjoys eating them. It probably isn't the healthiest baby food or the most organic brand, but it's easy to buy and/or access so sometimes that is what happens to moms. They are very affordable, come in a nice "tin" shape which I really like, and as always Gerber usually has coupons available which helps stretch your budget. Recommended for babies ages 7 months +. Maybe earlier if your baby has an interest in food at a younger age.

Great SNACK

By 

from Lancaster, OH

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

These have been my kids best friends when they wanted a snack.. My son ate these all the way up until he was 3 and then he would have rather had cheese puffs. My daughter liked them while we were out shopping or traveling. The flavors were great and the puffs were great because they melt in your mouth. These don't seem to have a choking hazard to them and made me feel ok giving them to my kids. My kids loved the other flavors more then this one but would eat all the flavors just the same. I had to stop buying these because the last couple of times the kids have let them go stale and refused to eat them. I wish I could have bought these for my kids a little longer because they felt good to give to my kids.

Quality of Ingredients
I really liked the idea that these had whole grains in them because I didn't need to worry if they kids weren't getting grain from something else.

Safety
These were great and I didn't have any concerns with safety with them. These basically melt in your mouth and do not pose a choking hazard.

Not as good as the other crunchies

By 

from Bellingham, WA

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

When I discovered all these different flavors of crunchies, I couldn't wait for my son to try all of the different flavors. He was fond of almost every single flavor he tried, but when it came to these ones, he wasn't as crazy about them as he was of all the other ones. 

I think because they're a little sweet for his liking. All the other flavors are more savory and not sweet like these ones. 

All in all though, I like how small these are and yet still big enough to hold for a few bites, also, I like that there are so many in one pack that we can barely finish a pack before they start to feel stale. Some people complain that they are not a good value for money, but when they make your child happy, what is spending a few cents more on a brand that will make him happy for a while, and on top of that, provide some added nutrition into their snacks without them even knowing?! This is really a no brainer!

Little Crunchie delights!

By 

from Federal Way, WA

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

Once my son was on solids, me and my husband went on a snack food shopping spree to see which ones my son would like. I was quite apprehensive about cinnamon flavor (especially since I associate it with cinnamon pretzels from Auntie Anne's which have tons of sugar!), but we gave it a shot since they were on sale and there were only 2 flavors to choose from! Well, needless to say, our son loved them. I think his favorite foods are the ones that are the messiest! These really do get everywhere but they are easy for him to eat, fun for him to hold and give me and his dad more to do when he's done with them because it takes us twice as long to get him cleaned up! I think he likes it because after he eats them, he always gets to play with water for a bit!

As a snack I don't find that these are particularly nutritious so I try not to let him have these too often, but as a treat they aren't bad!

Not worth the price

By 

from Rexburg, ID

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

I thought these would be a great snack and alternative to Cheetos without all the orange sticky mess. Plus they use whole grains and less sodium and less sugar. My toddler didn't seem to like to do much with them except make messes. The cinnamon gets everywhere, even messier than Cheetos. They smell so terrible it made me gag. I tried one and I could see why my daughter wasn't interested in eating them- basically they taste like styrofoam peanuts. They dissolve so quickly that they make huge messes once the kid has wet fingers. If they had been good, I would have been dissapointed about the tiny package they come in for such a high price. My favorite thing to get instead is the all natural white cheddar Cheetoes. Much better taste, lower cost, bigger bags, way less mess (they are not orange or covered in cinnamon), and the smell doens't make me want to vomit. Bottom line: don't waste your money.

Wonderful for babies who have a hard time eating finger foods

By 

from Chesnee, SC

Comments about Gerber Graduates Maple Cinnamon Lil' Crunchies:

Graduates lil' crunchies are a great way to start off feeding finger foods/snacks. They are available in two different flavors (that i know of). One is the cinnamon maple and then there is the cheese. My daughter loves both of them! She has a hard time eating many finger foods and/or snacks and these are really easy for her to chew up with 4 teeth and swallow them without gagging or choking. She has always had a hard time learning to chew, then swallow and ever since I gave her these, she seems to have progressed a lot in learning to chew first before swallowing. She is now able to eat bites of banana and apple without gagging on them.
