Disclosure: I received Go Picnic boxed meals to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.
School is back in session, sports are starting back up and schedules are super busy! Packing lunches for work and school, grabbing quick meals on the go and finding snacks that are healthy and satisfying for everyone can be quite the challenge. Let’s just say that I recently was introduced to a product that really makes all of the above a cinch and best of all they are healthy and delicious!
Introducing Go Picnic Ready-To-Eat Meals…
If you haven’t already tried them, you have no idea what you are missing!
Go Picnic Ready-to-Eat Meals are a complete, shelf stable meal packed in a box (Yay! No refrigeration needed) and ready to take with you anywhere you go. Most of the meals are under 400 calories and each of the contents inside are individually wrapped so you can eat them as you please. There is no preparation required, which makes them an easy on-the-go option. You can split them up as snacks to share or eat some now and save some for later. Eating them all at once, they make a quick, easy and balanced meal and I was pleased to find that they are as delicious as they are satisfying. Some of the Go Picnic meals are also vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and/or kosher. Meals in these categories will have boxes which are clearly labeled, so you should be sure to check products for specific categories and/or allergens if needed.
There are a variety of Go Picnic Meals to choose from including:
- Almond Butter & Crackers
- BBQ Beef Stick & Cheese Crackers
- Edamame Kale Dip & Plaintain Chips
- Hickory Farms Beef, Cheese & Crackers
- Hummus + Crackers
- Salami & Cheese
- Three Bean Dip & Rice Chips
- Turkey Slices & Cheddar
- Tuna & Crackers
- Turkey Stick & Crunch
- Black Bean Dip & Plantain Chips
- Peanut Butter & Crackers
- Turkey Pepperoni & Cheese
- Sunbutter & Crackers
Each individual box contains a variety of 5 different products which round out the complete meal. I love that each box has items that are savory and also something sweet like a piece of dark chocolate, dried fruits or other sweet treat.
I have had the pleasure of trying the Turkey Pepperoni & Cheese, Hummus & Crackers, Salami & Cheese and Turkey Stick & Crunch. I have enjoyed them all so much that I cannot choose one favorite. They are all just so yummy! Each item in each box is perfectly portion controlled and a wonderful compliment to the other items in the box. The hummus in the Hummus & Crackers meal is so smooth and creamy and the flavor plays perfectly with the multi seed crackers. The dry roasted edamame was a delight to the taste buds and the Baja Blend Fruit and Nut Mix was the perfect sweet and salty combo that I am forever craving. Since I LOVE Chocolate, I couldn’t think of a better way to end the meal than to savor the rich, heavenly flavor of the 72% Smooth Dark Chocolate Square. YUMMMMM! You really shouldn’t take my word for it – better yet – you really should try these for yourself! They truly are my family’s new favorite. My children and husband are enjoying them as much as I do!
So far, I have enjoyed Go Picnic meals at the beach, in my car and for lunch at work. I am going to pack a few in our travel bags for our trip next month too. They will be perfect for a quick and easy meal on the airplane when we head away on vacation. These will also be great for an easy snack or meal at my son’s long upcoming swim meets. They are so much healthier than other kid meals on the market, so I am thrilled that my kids like them enough to take along to school for a lunch on occasion too!
