Fun in The Sun 🌞

I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for summer. The days of sleeping in a little later (if young children permit), days lounging by the kiddie pool, and of course having friends over for some summer fun. We live in a neighborhood filled with kids and now that summer vacation is so close, every day my kids ask what day each of their friends can come over. And you know when you have a kid or two over you need snacks on snacks to keep them happy.

So, I have stocked up on TRISCUIT Crackers and GOOD THiNS Snacks to help me have something for friends and parents! I even started looking up fun snacks for those days we are playing out back all day. I want something that is easy to snack on and will please both kids and parents. When I started my research, I found the normal cheese and crackers, but I wanted something with a little more pizazz. Low and behold- I found it. Enter: Fun in The Sun Board!

Fun in the Sun Board

Prep Time: 15 min Total Time: 15 min Makes 10 servings


  • SABRA Supremely Spicy Hummus
  • Sargento® Extra Sharp Cheddar Natural Cheese Block, sliced
  • Sargento® Sharp Cheddar-Jack Natural Cheese Block, sliced
  • Pineapple slices
  • Watermelon wedges
  • Cucumbers, cut into sticks
  • TRISCUIT Thin Crisps Crackers
  • GOOD THiNS Sea Salt Corn Snacks

Place hummus and cheeses on large board or platter. Fill in empty spaces with pineapple, watermelon, cucumbers, crackers, and snacks. Add lime wedges and a small bowl of chili-lime seasoning for more color and flavor. This Fun in the Sun Board can be tailored to fit any number of servings, depending on the size of your gathering. Use a guideline of 2 Tbsp. hummus and 1 oz. EACH cheese, and crackers or snacks per serving. For a well-balanced board, fill in empty spaces with fresh fruit. For the 10 servings shown here, figure on purchasing a 10- oz. container of hummus and 10 oz. of cheese (total weight of both cheeses). Be sure to have plenty of crackers, snacks, fruit, and cucumbers on hand.



Prepare using your favorite fresh fruits. You should plan on having a total of 4 cups cutup fruit on hand to arrange on the board.


The chili-lime seasoning is the perfect flavor compliment to the pineapple.

We love to customize our boards with whichever fruits the kids want that day, and it always turns out to be a big hit. This board can be transformed to please anyone that you are entertaining with the various food combinations you can try. So be sure to stock up on your favorite TRISCUIT Crackers and GOOD THiNS Snacks and be ready for all your summer entertaining needs!
