Beating boredom on the road with Nestlé® Crunch®


One of the perks of living in Colorado is that there’s so many great places to go when you want to get out of the city. It’s easy to decide to head to the mountains at the drop of a hat and be there an hour later, ready to enjoy all the activities and adventure that the high country can offer.

Last weekend, we headed out of town for our annual trek to Breckenridge for Oktoberfest. One of the crucial things that made it into our suitcase was a supply of Nestlé® Crunch® bars and Nestlé® Buncha Crunch® for snacking on the road and during our mountain weekend. Crunch® is the perfect mix of smooth and creamy milk chocolate and airy and crispy rice so it’s satisfying without that stuffed, sick feeling you get eating rich foods.


But Crunch® isn’t just a great snack. It has so many unconventional uses that can make any getaway – whether it’s to the mountains or to the office every day – a little more interesting. Some simple ways to keep the Crunch® fun going:

  1. Instead of poker chips or money, use Nestlé® Buncha Crunch® as betting currency during your favorite card game.
  2. Replace the pieces in your favorite board game with Nestlé® Crunch® Fun Size bars (just make sure they make it to the end of the board before you eat them!).
  3. Instead of building houses from playing cards, substitute Nestlé® Crunch® and Nestlé® Crunch® Fun Size bars as your building materials.

Because I’m a huge nerd, I decided to make a stop-motion movie starring Crunch® – it was a great way to pass the time, and I got a sweet and crunchy reward for my efforts – I got to eat the cast! It’s definitely not perfect or groundbreaking – Stephen Spielberg won’t be calling anytime soon – but it was fun to make. Check it out:

And now that we’re back home, Nestlé® Crunch® is a great addition to my purse. It’s something I can reach for when I need a little treat to get me through the day.
