In honor of National Ants on a Log Day, I’ve created six fun new ways to enjoy the childhood classic snack that everyone loves to eat!
Snacks are life. Whether you’re trying to reach a weight loss goal, fuel a workout routine or keep up with your hungry kiddos, I think we can all agree: snacks. are. life.
In honor of National Ants on a Log Day (yes, it’s a holiday!!), I’m sharing six fun new ideas for the classic childhood snack. With a variety of savory and sweet options, there’s something for everyone:
- Tuna Salad
- Peanut Butter and Raspberries
- Guacamole and Pickled Jalapeños
- Herbed Goat Cheese and Salami
- Peanut Butter and Dried Cherries
- Hummus and Cherry Tomatoes
Jacob’s favorite was the peanut butter with dried cherries but my oldest son loved the tuna salad ants on a log! Either way, one thing is for sure: they make the ideal after school snack or lunchbox treat.
Feel free to get creative and mix and match with your own favorite toppings. Celery is the perfect low-calorie, high-fiber vessel to fill with protein-packed ingredients (hello hummus!) to create a healthy snack that won’t cause a sugar spike.
What are your favorite ants on a log toppings? I’d love to hear your creative ideas! No forks required.

Wow, these ALL look amazing! I’d pick the tuna and guac versions first, then work my way through them all!
