Review: GoPicnic Ready-to-Eat Meals

Do you have a stash of food in a drawer at work? Oh, I hope so. I know I'm not the only one. Most of my coworkers have a drawer that is dedicated to snacks and non-perishable meals. Obviously, we don't go out to lunch very often.

If you do have a food drawer and are looking for something new to add to it, you should try these ready-to-eat meals from GoPicnic. GoPicnic has a variety of breakfast, lunch, and snacks that come in convenient packages. You can get them as complete meals or buy single products. Here are just a few of the varieties they have to offer:

  • Breakfast Meals - Chocolate Almond Butter and Croissant, Cinnamon Spread and Multi-grain Bagel Chips, Maple Turkey Sausage and Fruit-Nut Mix
  • Lunch/Dinner Meals - Beef Cheese & Pita Chips, Blackbean Dip and Plantain Chips, Red Pepper Hummus and Pita Chips, Almond Butter & Crackers, and Salami and Cheese
  • Snacks - Almond Butter with Multigrain Crackers, Flexible Fruit, Cheese Spreads, Black Bean Dip and Tortilla Chips
In addition to a large variety of products, these products are also healthy and delicious. As stated on the GoPicnic web site: GoPicnic®’s palate-pleasing breakfasts, lunches and snacks are also available for a wide range of food diet restrictions including gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan, non-GMO and kosher options. All GoPicnic meals contain no artificial colors, flavors, trans fats, high-fructose corn syrup or added MSG.

You may order these ready-to-eat meals and snacks directly from GoPicnic or you may purchase them at a retailer near you such as Target, Walgreens, Costco, Kroger, Whole Foods, Cost-Plus World Market, Albertsons, Sprouts, K-Mart, Hy-Vee, Giant Eagle, Paradies & Hudson News airport store.

Contents of the Almond Butter and Crackers Ready-to-Eat Meal

As described on the GoPicnic site: Get ready for creamy almond butter, crunchy multigrain crackers, a tutti-fruit-i fruit & seed blend, an organic strawberry flexible fruit strip, & a vanilla chewy rice crisp bar for dessert!

I thoroughly enjoyed the almond butter meal. The almond butter is all-natural so had to be stirred with the wooden spoon that is included in the box. I spread it on the Flatbed Crackers. These crackers had a hint of sesame flavor which I'm always a fan of and the sesame flavor worked well with the almond butter. I finished the meal off with the vanilla rice crisp bar and the strawberry fruit strip - both were fun, delicious treats. This meal is definitely drawer-worthy and I'm definitely going to search for more of these meals to bring to work.

 Contents of the Salami and Cheese Ready-to-Eat Meal

Per the GoPicnic site: Get ready for hardwood-smoked beef salami slices, creamy Asiago cheese spread, crunchy olive oil & sea salt cracker, Cashew Medley fruit & nut mix (with yogurt chips!), and chocolate pillows for dessert.

Since my husband is a fan of salami and cheese, I've saved this meal for him. However, I did sneak in and eat the chocolate pillows. This sweet treat was delicious! I hope he doesn't miss it...

Again, these are the perfect meals to keep in your food drawer at work, for your child's lunchbox, to take on road trips and to have available for camping and hunting trips. I'm looking forward to trying some of the other varieties that the company has to offer.
