How I’m Kicking Off My Year with My Walmart+ Membership (+ Strawberry Shortcake Recipe)

Walmart Plus Membership

For over a year now, I have been using my Walmart+ membership and it has made my life at home so super easy. As a working mom, I need all the working mom hacks that I can get, and this membership from Walmart has been one that I have relied on and one that has helped me to not only save time when we need essentials at home, but it has also helped me with eating healthier by meal prepping as well as making it super easy to grab gifts that my friends and family love for birthday and the holiday season. And now as we enter the new year, I’m using my Walmart+ membership to not only grab things that our family needs, but also to try new recipes and snack ideas. My husband is a gamer and has an extremely sweet tooth and his passing both of those traits down to my son. 

For me, that means that I need to find healthy sweet snacks that both of them will love and that they can hold while hanging out on the couch playing with whatever they decide to play with that day. At the start of the year, I made it a goal to try out new recipes to try to see what works for our family, and when I get inspired, my Walmart+ membership allows me to go online quickly, put the necessary ingredients I need in my cart, and have it delivered to me as soon as same day for free ($35 order minimum – restrictions apply). I’ve landed up one that has been a hit, so I am going to share with the recent sweet snack I’ve been giving my gamers along with some other gamer snack tips. 

Walmart Plus Membership


With my husband and son being gamers who also have sweet tooths, we are both a family that has a lot of snacks that we stock up on monthly as well as a family that typically wants to have the latest and greatest. Our Walmart+ membership allows us to both always stay stocked up on our snacks and get the technology we need for the house at everyday low prices which helps me to keep our household on a budget. With great deals on the Playstation 5 and on kitchen gadgets such as an air fryer, my husband and I both get what we want. And with the Walmart+ membership only being $98/year (or $12.95/month), it’s a membership that gives you the best return on investment. (P.S. You can also take advantage of a FREE 30-day trial so you can see the benefits for yourself).

Snack Options FOR GAMERS

I’ve lived with gamers my entire life. My brother was a gamer and still is and my husband is now one too and I’m pretty sure he is set on making our son one as well. So I’ve always had an idea of what snacks work for gamers since they want something they can quickly eat and, for me, something that doesn’t make a mess and is not super easy to spill. My husband has never been much of a chip person other than chips and salsa, but he’s always loved trying new things so I love creating different snacks for him. There are so many snack options that you can get delivered for free using your Walmart+ membership and with the fresh ingredients found at Walmart, there are even more options for snacks if you’re up for getting creative and making some snacks yourself. Some of the favorites that have been a huge hit for my gamer husband have been: charcuterie jars, pretzel bites with beer cheese dip, taco cups, french dip croissants, and stuffed cheesy bread bites.

Mason Jar Strawberry Shortcake


With both my husband and son having a sweet tooth, I wanted to make a healthy-ish sweet snack that can easily be eaten without it making too much of a mess – especially when my husband wants to sit on the couch and enjoy it. This mason jar strawberry shortcake recipe is simple to make and the mason jar contains the mess. If you’re looking to make it healthier, you can alter the ingredients in the box cake such as switching out the whole eggs for egg whites and the vegetable oil for sunflower oil, or you can make the cake from scratch and use alternate flour options.
