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.
