Veggie Pirate’s Booty as Easter basket “grass”

Amazon: Pirate's Booty Veggie, 4-Ounce Bags (Pack of 12) (affiliate link)
This brilliant Easter basket hack comes from Magda of Ask Moxie (a site you should ALL visit):

I started using Pirate's Booty Veggie in the bottom of my kids' Easter baskets instead of that icky green plastic grass.

  • It gives the grasslike effect because of the color, but it's totally edible, even for babies.
  • It won't clog your vacuum, and it's a nice savory contrast to all the candy.
  • If it ends up outside, you don't have to pick it up because it'll dissolve in the rain, and your pets can eat it and it won't choke them.

Updated in 2014 to add: Magda and I have been friends and kindred spirits for all these years. She's STILL doing incredible things at Ask Moxie. The community is a testament to what's possible when we're real with each other as parents.

    Target has some bags of “candy grass”. It is pure sugar, I’m sure, but I hate buying a useless plastic product like the plastic grass. I don’t think that is recyclable (someone tell me if I’m wrong) and it’s just a waste. At least the candy grass will be eaten and gone in the end.
