Planning for a Family Snackation on New England Hiking Trails

My family loves to hike. We are very lucky that there are so many awesome hiking destinations close to home in New England. When we go on long hikes, we need to be prepared with lots of snacks for our Snackation!


Walmart has some great snack supplies from Smucker’s and Jif brands that are just perfect to fit in our day packs and coolers. I love that Walmart has a great selection and always has the best prices around.


Quick and easy snacks are a must in my book. I want to spend time with my family and on the trails, not fuss with snack preparation. The portable snacks like the Jif To Go Dippers are perfect for on the go. I’ll pack some apple slices and pretzels for easy dipping when we take snack breaks along the trail.

I am in LOVE with the Jif Whips. I selected the peanut butter and chocolate flavor. I can’t wait to dip some fresh strawberries for a sweet and satisfying treat! My husband is excited to try this one too!


My daughter is a big fan of PB&J sandwiches, but they can get messy to make and eat on the trail. She’s also not a big fan of the crust. The Smucker’s Uncrustables are ideal for her! I can take a few out of the freezer and they are ready to eat by the time we hit our lunch spot on the hike.


My son is a fan of the Smucker’s Squeeze Grape and Strawberry Jam. He’ll put some on a rice cake or squirt inside a hotdog roll. He’ll often combine both flavors.


I’m excited for our next family hike and glad I am all set with snacking supplies. Stay tuned for my post on what snacks we prepare and maybe a yummy recipe or two.

What are your favorite snacks for family Snackations?

I love the idea of a Snackation!!! The Jif Whips sounds so delish - great for strawberries I need a snackation for that now!

These are awesome products for a picnic! I think the crustables and the peanut butter to go are both amazing ideas! I'll be looking for the pb packs next time I'm at the store!

Th is is right on time! We're taking a trip next week to Disney World. I'll keep a look out for some of these items when I pack my boys lunches for the airplane. Thanks!

We love Smuckers here. We also love those Jif Dippers...I think I like those as much as the kids do.

We love taking individually packed apple sauces, sliced meats and cheeses, and grapes! I'd love to try the peanut butter to go packs!
