I first saw the¬†Go Picnic products¬†at Expo West this Spring and with life about to get even more hectic, I thought they would be the perfect thing to try out. I wasn’t sure how I would do with little “snacks” but thought it would be easy enough to add an easy salad for a well-rounded meal.

The little package of food is adorable, don’t you think?


  • Vegan, Gluten Free, All Natural
  • “Grown up” flavors – hummus and crackers, dark chocolate, edamame, etc.
  • Doesn’t require any refrigeration
  • Hummus! I am super picky about hummus (I prefer my own) and I wasn’t really expecting to like it but I was pleasantly surprised!
  • Convenience factor – obviously!


  • There was less packaging – BUT getting take out typically still has more and using plastic baggies for everything in your lunch is essentially the same thing
  • It is great for snackers, but doesn’t necessarily feel like a real meal
  • There were more crackers. :)

They also have a few different varieties – salami + cheese, tuna + crackers, peanut butter + crackers, etc. that I’m tempted to try out next. I haven’t seen these in stores, but I ordered them online from amazon – super easy and delivered right to my door, along with a few books. :)

    I need to check these out. Chicago has so many events in the summer that can involve a picnic and these would be good for that!

    Those look so cute! I’ll definitely check those out next time I’m shopping on amazon- I can never go too long without a snack, so those sound good! :)

    I am a snacker at heart, and would love to have Go Picnic products on hand! This would be a perfect box to carry on the airplane!

    What a fabulous idea this is! The no refrigeration is a real perk for sure.
