Strawberry Cream Cheese Crostino

Sweet and savory, three ingredient bite sized snack of cream cheese and strawberry jam spread on top of toasted olive oil bruschettini.  Pair with Snapple® Straight Up Tea™ for a quick and satisfying snack.

Tea is a long-time favorite beverage of mine. Snapple® Straight Up Tea™ combines the flavor of fresh brewed tea and real sugar.  It’s easy to try every flavor.

There is nothing as refreshing as ice cold tea.  It’s my favorite iced drink and one I look forward to everyday.  I start my morning with tea while I catch up at the desk and read emails, reply to blog comments and breeze over current local news.  Tea is invigorating and refreshing and I can’t imagine replacing it with anything else.

Snapple Brewed Tea

One of my favorite ways to enjoy tea is to pair it with a light snack.  A snack that doesn’t need any baking or a long list of ingredients.  Strawberry cream cheese crostino is great to enjoy in the late afternoon, for lunch or to serve as an appetizer to friends.

The snack takes just a few minutes to prepare.  Just spread softened cream cheese across the toasted bread and top with a little strawberry jam or whatever jam is in the refrigerator.  Basil and mint both add additional flavor that matches the sweetness of the jam.

Strawberry Cream Cheese Bruschettini

I’ve grown up drinking Snapple® and when I saw that they offered a few options of sweetness, I knew I had to try it!  Snapple® Straight Up Tea™ has a brewed tea taste that I love.  It’s black tea sweetened with a touch of real sugar depending on how you like your tea.

 I like sweet tea but I’ve fallen in love with the Sorta Sweet flavor as it’s super delicious with just a hind of real sugar.  I always find myself picking this flavor from the store.  It’s sweetened to perfection and it’s my beverage of choice.  Not too sweet and not too unsweetened. I really like to pair it with a light snack that is either sweet or savory.  There are three levels of sweetness – Unsweetened with zero calories, Sorta Sweet with 90 calories and Sweet with 180 calories.  All three truly taste like awesome brewed tea.

Snapple Tea

 Stop & Shop has all three sweetened flavors of Snapple® Straight Up Tea™ and it’s on sale until November 8th.  I got 5 Sorta Sweet and 3 Sweet and 2 unsweetened iced teas for everyone in my family to enjoy. Ten for $10 is a great deal!
