I need a snack for preschool kids that starts with "U"

Friday is "U" day at my son's preschool. We got saddled with the task of bringing in a snack that starts with that day's letter. Is there any fairly simple, preschool friendly snack that start with the letter 'u'?

Uncooked anything works, I suppose, but I think preschoolers would only see carrots and think it was 'C' day.

Upside Down Cake--Keep it in the pan and release it in front of them.

that was my first thought as well, but they had pretzles on "P" day already, so this may be a bit confusing as well.

They make potato chips and cheesy poofs and such too, though.

I've found these at the grocery store on occasion:
Ugli Fruit

They are kind of like a sweeter grapefruit/tangerine. They can be a little juicier than you'd expect, but they are delicious. I'm not sure when they are in season though.

Make cookies in the shape of umbrellas. It is April, after all.

Turns out they had potato chips on P day. I think we're going with Utz after all, after looking at what was brought in for some of the other letter days. The bar is, apparently, not set too high.

Now what's the poor fellow who has Z day going to bring in?

Do they still make Zagnut bars? I guess they could work, but I'm not sure if they still exist.

How about Unleavened bread?

If I were drinking 7-Up, it would have come out my nose reading this. Do they still use that tag line in their commercials? I haven't actually heard the phrase in years.

That would get you into trouble with the peanut Nazis, in all likelihood.

Undens klinger is a kind of soft pretzel with caraway seeds. It's not exactly simple unless you happen to have a Latvian bakery in the neighborhood.

Mine wasn't technically a simulpost. I just thought I'd play the "we're not sure what to capitalize" game too.

Really Not All That Bright, mine was a simulpost, but I think I got the caps right.

Unca Cecil might recommend looking for a product that's been certified by Union of Orthodox Jewish Congregations of America, as noted by the circle-U mark.

I saw you eating under there.

Under where?

You were eating underwear!

Ube, a purple yam
Ultra Slim Fast
Umble pie, which dictionary.com helpfully defines as a pie made of umbles.
Umeboshi, a type of pickled plum

Umbles are the guts of an animal: hearts, lungs, stomach, intestines, etc.

I'd recommend this along with uccelletti (an Italian dish made of small roasted birds served whole), ulitka (a Russian dish made from snails), and uni (a Japanese dish made from sea urchins).

This should get you out of any future snack day duties.

I got a Polish one: uszka ("little ears"), which are basically the Polish take on tortellini. If you live in or near a Polish area, you might find them packaged like this or similarly in the frozen section.

I was going to suggest Nabisco's Uneeda Biscuit. The first cracker that Nabisco ever made. This was the brand MAD magazine made fun for so long. In the classic Frank N Stain parody, the doctor's assistant robs the brain from the Uneeda Laboratories.

Sadly that classic saltine was just discontinued last year after more than 100 years in the market.

Personally, like upside-down cake. A pre-schooler will understand that. Also, it's yummy.
