Snacktime! is a children's-themed studio album by Canadian band B-Ladies released on May 6, 2008 by Desperation Records.

He was subsequently quoted, saying of the album, "[i]t was a lot of fun to do, but it wasn't my idea. I was along for the ride."

Snacktime! reached number 10 on the Canadian charts and peaked at No. 61 on the Billboard 200. It also won a 2009 Juno Award for the Children's Album of the Year.
