Heading to Niagara Falls on a #RoadTripChip @CapeCodChips (and you can win a gift package)

Disclosure- I have received the below in order to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own and honest. For more info, please see “I Disclose”.

Niagara Falls

Recently, my son and I decided to head north for a visit to one of the natural wonders of the world, Niagara Falls.

We packed up the car, and headed out. It took us about 10 hours to get there, but that’s nothing that can’t be done in a (very long) day.  Of course, when taking a road trip, especially with kids, you can’t forget the snacks.

Always bring the drinks, a few things to play with, and stuff to eat- because no one likes a cranky kid. We took all sorts of things, including Cape Cod Chips, which are having a fun summer road trip hashtag this year to encourage you to get out and see some cool places.  It’s a fun way to see what your fellow Cape Cod Chip lovers are up to, as well.


While visiting Niagara Falls, we made sure to visit some of the most famous places. The falls themselves, of course, as well as taking a White Water Walk and a Journey Behind the Walls.

We also took the newly-turned-100 Whirlpool Aero Car 3,500 feet across and over the rapids and gorge. We had to take a Hornblower boat cruise into the falls to really experience the power they possess- and how beautiful they are. That was really a highlight for us all.

We visited the Butterfly Conservatory at Niagara Parks, which was spectacular and honestly so much fun and very much a special experience, with butterflies of all colors and species floating about and landing on each of us.

While Niagara Falls is amazing ad stunning during the day, we had to stop by and see it at night, when it was all lit up. Did you know that they light up the falls every evening? You can also take a night boat cruise- you won’t get as wet, but the photos are beautiful.


During our time in Niagara, we of course kept our Cape Cod Chips handy- we had to keep the “hangry” monster away.
One of you can win a box of your own Cape Cod Chips- feel free to enter using the RC form below.

John Wm. Macy’s CheeseSticks

Warning, this post is not for the lactose intolerant.  Read further upon your own discretion.  I am not to be held responsible for drooling on the keyboard either. 😛


There are many addictive items in life.  These come in many different forms, most of which can destroy a person body adn soul.  But there is one addictive substance which never lasts long in our house, delicious snacks.  Delicious snacks are usualy crunchy and either salty or sweet.  One of the most recent cases of, “oh my I think i ate the whole box.”  Have been CheeseSticks by John Wm Macy.  These delightful snacks are crunchy cheesey or sweet treats in the form of triested sticks or bite size portions.  both of which seem to disappear soon after the box is opened.  These treats come in three forms and many flavors.

delicious party snacks

Great Snacks for the Whole Family

The first is the original form: CheeseSticks.   These started out with original in 1985 but are now available in a variety of flavors including Cheddar and Scallion, Garlic Romano, Dijon Swiss and Melting Parmesan.  All have a wonderful real cheese flavor which you can smell and taste.  When twisted with the sourdough these snacks are unique in their simple yet robust flavors.  All flavors are good and it is very difficult to picka  favorite although as of now we lean toward Cheddar Scallion.
