So my husband went grocery shopping and bought a ridiculous amount of celery. What to do with celery I thought to myself as I'm not too fond of the bitter aftertaste. Then I remembered a quick snack my cousin from England forced, yes forced, me to eat lol and I thought to improve it to my liking, since I had Nutella in the pantry.

Here are four quick snacks that he and your kids may find surprisingly delicious!
1. Celery and peanut butter 
2. Celery, peanut butter and cranberries (called Ants on a log)
3. Celery and Nutella
4. Celery, Nutella and bananas

Simply butter each celery stalk with your choice of nut butter.
Cut each stalk into bite-size blocks
Add cranberry or banana slices.

The surprising delight in this quick snack is the sweetness of the nut butter and cranberry or banana, with the refreshing thirst quenching water that sprouts from the celery.

Celery is good for you. it has been demonstrated to lower blood pressure in rats. Celery is used in weight-loss diets, where it provides low-calorie dietary fiber bulk.

I think celery with peanut butter and raisins was referred to as "Ants on a log," at one time. I love dried cranberries, and have them in my steel cut oats all the time!

Putting peanut butter on celery was always one way to get my kids to eat a snack that wasn't a cookie, etc. My mom used to take those tiny salad shrimp and mix with a little mayo and put on celery, too.

When I was a kid, the routine quick snack for us was celery and Cheese Whiz.

Hello, ladanams! My 27 year old son loves celery and eats it every day. He likes to dip the celery in ranch dressing. Ants on a log for our family were raisins and peanut butter.
