What We’re Loving: Baked by Melissa’s Back-to-School Snack Pack

Because some days an apple isn’t going to cut it

We’re in full back-to-school swing here at The Daily Meal. We are rolling out healthy menus, a guide to what you need to pack for college, and lunchboxes like you’ve never seen before.
And while we are pushing for healthy snacks and balanced lunches for the school year, your kids deserve a special treat once in a while. 

Cue Baked by Melissa, known for their adorable mini bites that come in an array of colors and flavors. The miniature cupcake company is debuting something new for August — a three-pack of cupcakes, perfect for on-the-go snacking or a lunchbox treat. They're ideal for those moments when the kids deserve a treat — for getting a gold star, 100 on their quiz, or even when they’re nervous about giving a speech or presentation. 

Available online or in any of Baked by Melissa’s nine New York City stores, the three pack can be filled with any combination of Baked by Melissa’s signature flavors. Unlike regular-sized cupcakes, which clock in at around 500 calories, Baked by Melissa cupcakes are each less than 45 calories, making this already packaged three-pack an easy way to keep kids from overdoing it on the sugar.
