Finger foods that don't require additional preparation when you’re ready to eat are perfect for snacking on in the car or munching around the campsite before the big meal.
- Whole-grain breads, pita bread, all-natural snack crackers and chips are simple snack solutions.
- Look for dips and spreads in the prepared food section of the store or make a few of our favorites: Baba Ghanouj, Black Bean Hummus, Cream Cheese and Cashew Nut Dip, or Guacamole. Pack them with corn chips, sliced cucumbers, baby carrots or sticks of jicama for dipping.
- Assorted roasted nuts — honey roasted, tamari roasted, chile roasted or plain — are always a hit.
- Cut your favorite hard or semi-hard cheeses into cubes and pack in an airtight container for snacking.
- Look for prepared trail mix, or throw together your favorite dried fruits, nuts and seeds from our bulk section to make your own.
- You can’t go wrong with getting your fruits and veggies. Think grapes, carrots, cherry tomatoes, apples and celery sticks. Prefer apple slices to whole apple? Keep a cut apple from browning by putting the slices into its original shape and securing with a rubber band.
- Marinated olives, mushrooms and roasted peppers from our olive bar are perfect for chilled picnic appetizers. Homemade pickles are simple and add zip to snacking.
- One word: popcorn. Pop up a variety of flavors and pack them in airtight bags or jars to keep it fresh.
Chocolate Chip Granola Bars with dried fruit and nuts will become a fast favorite for snacking on the road or while camping, since they’re easy to throw in your backpack and eat when your stomach starts to grumble.
