Go picnic great travel treats Review (and a giveaway)


 Are you looking for the perfect snack on the run, or for travel. Well I have a great suggestion for you all Go Picnic, the best travel food around. Here is a little more information about this great company from the website:

  GoPicnic's founders developed the concept of the shelf-stable picnic meal in 2004 for a major US airline whose existing buy-on-board fresh food service program was costing it millions of dollars annually due to high levels of waste from unused meals as well as incremental personnel expenses stemming from the need for in-flight food preparation.

The shelf-stable snackbox solution that the GoPicnic founders created to address these issues generated profit for the airline for the first time in its food service history and provided customers with a reliable quality product at a good value. Recognizing the many benefits such shelf-stable "picnic" meal programs could bring to a wide array of other industries, the GoPicnic founders expanded on the original concept, making nutritious high-quality shelf-stable meal solutions available to new markets and clients.

   I just recently got back from a trip to Mexico and thankfully I thought ahead. My husband asked me what snacks did you get on the plane? My answer to him was NONE. We weren't even given a bag of peanuts. It's lame that you charge an arm and a leg for bags and you can't even give me a bag of peanuts!
No worries I was prepared. I had packed with me a few boxes of of Go Picnic  ready to eat meals and let me tell you I'm glad I brought them with me. I was the envy of the people around me who also were astonished that we weren't offered any kind of snack on this 4 hour flight. My mother and I were all set and we ate like Queens thanks to our Go Picnic snack.

With the ready to eat meals you really are taken care of and will be full when all is said and done. I had the salami and cheese meal that had salami and cheese (duh!) with olive oil & sea salt crackers and a cashew medley fruit & nut mix along with a dark chocolate rice crisp. This was delicious and I was very satisfied after eating my meal. Go Picnic meals are now a staple of our traveling bag there will always be a few of them packed along with other essential items to make sure we always have something to eat.  The Go Picnic meals also make great treats for kids lunches. 

My daughter recently brought the turkey and cheddar Go Picnic meal into school. She was the envy of her lunch table. I love that Go Picnic is not like the other ready to eat kids meals that are not exactly healthy. Sure the other guys seem cool, but they have to be refrigerated and what school has that? With Go Picnic I know I am giving my daughter high quality food for lunch and snack. She loves it, and I know I will be purchasing Go Picnic meals again in the future. My family loves them, and I am sure yours will too.

 The generous folks at Go Picnic are giving one of Susan's Disney Family reader a chance to win two Go Picnic boxed meals. Would you like to win?
