Giblet on Gerber Graduates Lil' Crunchies (Mild Cheddar)
There is one member of the Mr. Dave household who does not often get to partake in any of my culinary machinations due to a somewhat underdeveloped gastrointestinal tract. She is my lovely wee 'un, young Giblet (most beauteous of all young humans). She has hardily endorsed a certain product with loud munching and smiles, so I thought I would share for any of my babied readers. I have noticed a fickle streak in my daughter at the very tender age of 8 months, there are certain jars of baby mush that she will turn her darling button nose up at. She prefers Beechnut (to me a sure sign of a budding locavore)in the jars, I think she is old fashioned. However, she will suffer certain items from the massive Gerber Co., one of them being "Lil' Crunchies."
These are, in effect, baby cheese doodles (I know because I ate a bunch of them and got thoroughly chastised by Mrs. Dave). My young Giblet could be right in the middle of a thunderous hissy-fit, but throw some of these bad boys in front of her and she smiles and is pleased as punch. She will sit happily crunching away until you stop her. I feel a little guilty giving them to her, but she loves them so. I am hoping that her unadulterated love of these things is evidence of a budding appreciation for cheeses, and not a budding appreciation for junk food.
Her comments are as follows- "Bah, mmmmm, mamamamamamaa, ahhhhhhhhh, phbbhbhbhbhtttt!"
