A guide to the perfect "parents night in"

We have two kids under 5. As you can imagine, and as most of you know, we don’t get out as much as we used to. What used to be movie nights, eating out, or fun activities have turned into quiet evenings at home for my husband and I. Kids have bedtimes, busy schedules, and by the end of the day we are all wiped out.

As much as I love a nice relaxing evening, I wanted to create a fun “Parents Night In” to switch things up. This doesn’t need to be glamorous, you just need a few of your favorite things and, voila, PERFECT NIGHT!

First start with a some of your favorite things! I always start a good evening with our perfect movie and popcorn! It’s basically a given. You can choose a show from your own movie collection (we are avid movie collectors and have plenty to choose from) or go rent a new release for something new and exciting!

Next, the SNACKS! The most important part. Honestly, these can make or break your amazing evening! Good treats are CRUCIAL to watching a good show. They can make even the worst movie amazing ha ha. Pick a snack you both like or get each person their own snack. We went for OREO Sandwich Cookies, because lets be real right now…who DOESN’T like an OREO??!! 

I usually purchase an OREO package for the whole family, but this time we weren’t sharing with the kids ha ha. ALL FOR US! They have new (and DELICIOUS flavors) available right now at your local Kroger Stores, and I honestly could hardly choose. I purchased mine at my local Smith’s Food and Drug. You can find your local Kroger/Kroger Family of Stores to get your OREO sandwich cookies HERE.

In the end we each got our own package of OREOS….how could I pick just one!? Ok, and maybe one extra because I couldn’t decide. All you need to do now is add a glass of milk to the occasion, and really who even needs the movie anymore?

I went for the OREO Birthday Cake package. I love regular birthday cake and this flavor just seemed FUN! (and it didn’t disappoint) I then surprised my husband with a package of either the OREO Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies or the OREO Cinnamon Bun package. Can you believe this is even a thing? They can recreate Red Velvet and Cinnamon Bun into an OREO. Still trying to figure it out. And the crazy part is that it’s as amazing as it sounds! He chose the OREO Red Velvet flavor, and we are saving the OREO Cinnamon Bun package for our next fun night in. Don’t worry, its hidden in the top of the pantry where it can’t be found by little hands ha.

Do you want to know more about these amazing new OREO flavors?! Well, you’re in luck! There’s nobody who’s more in the know than a Kroger mom, and in 2017 you’ll be getting inside access to the Kroger OREO Wonder Vault to discover everything OREO. There will be in-store Kroger demos happening 6/15-6/18 in participating Kroger grocers. These awesome demos will present Kroger-exclusive recipes, information on the newest OREO flavors, Limited Edition varieties, the new MILKA OREO Chocolate Candy Bar, fun facts about the history of OREO and Kroger, and much, much more! Don’t miss it!

Now, we couldn’t just stop at the OREO package because, when I saw the new MILKA OREO Chocolate Candy Bar I caved and got that for an after movie treat. I am a seriously chocoholic, and this chocolate candy bar was calling my name. It has crunchy bits of OREO + Crème Filling + Rich MILKA Chocolate Candy. What is MILKA do you ask? Oh, just one of Europe’s leading chocolate brands…NBD. (GIVE ME ALL THE CHOCOLATE!)

The best part of this is that your local Kroger Store is offering BOGO deal with OREO Wonder Vault Flavors. You can purchase one Wonder Vault flavor OREO and get a free MILKA OREO Chocolate Candy Bar at Kroger grocers. This offer valid is 6/14 – 6/20. YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS!

I like a regular ol’ OREO as much as the next guy. Give me a cookie I’ll be happy as can be. But having the option of some different yummy flavors to try, you better believe I went for the new and different! And I am so glad we did. These little treats made our evening in even that much more WONDERFILLED!

After our fun, and yummy, night I’m pretty sure we just found our new weekly tradition. We were able to stay home and relax and also have a lot fun! I can’t wait to hear how your “Parents Night In” goes and what OREO flavor you love!

  1. This sounds like a perfect night in for parents! Our daughters are two and eight so we also don’t get much time out anymore. It’s always fun family nights but sometimes you just need a break from all the kid stuff. OREO it is! #client
