The Best Trail Snacks for Stock and Home Food – Mash Viral

The Best Trail Snacks for Stock and Home Food

If I asked you last month, I would say that I was part of a low-skilled workforce that works at home all day, metaphorically tied to a laptop and a desk. But today, it could be argued that they are one of the masses who now call home and work the same place.

And, not only are we all staying in our homes in our homes, but grocery stores have literally run out of food. It’s a strange world here, folks. I’m not sure I can do much of anything for the global pandemic (other than the social detachment thing), but I can help you out on the home front. Okay, like lawyer shirts and backpackers, my husband and I have a perma-stash of trail snacks popping up in our garage. From time to time, I’ve been known to wander out of here and consume one or two (or 12) trail snacks instead of a standard snack. #SorryNotSorry

What does this mean to you? I can help you figure out which trail snacks are worth your time and calories while beating on your laptop. Below, I have included my six beautiful hiking favorites that taste just as good in your kitchen as they do in the wild. You’re welcome.

Organic Honey Stinger Candy – Candy

If there was a trail snack as a rule, I voted for these waffles. Packed with candy-infused ooey-gooey honey and sandwiched between two thin waffles, these are easily my go-to snack option every day of the week (which is why my husband has to hide in front of me). Pro Tip: Sit at your desk with a cup of coffee and a waffle. Then, let the waffle sit on top of the hot cup for a few minutes so that the steamy heat will soften the sweetness. Hmmmmm, okay.

Skratch Labs Sport Energy Chews

We have a child whose fruit tastes are abundant “around these parts”. But, if you’re looking for the adult version, take a look at these chews from Skratch. The brand qualifies as a “gumdrop candy” that is perfectly accurate. They are also free of everything (gluten free, dairy free, and vegan) so they fit most dietary preferences. And finally, the main event: it doesn’t stop its teeth like so many other chews. YES.

Munk Pac Keto Granola Bar

I don’t follow a keto diet, but I feel like most of the planet. If you like that demographic, three cheers for you … now go eat all those Munk Pack bars. Basically, these taste exactly like those delicious cabbage granola chocolates you ate in elementary school but can’t really go away as an adult. Only now, they are healthy with only one gram of sugar, two grams of net carbohydrates and five grams of protein. Total acceptable.

ProBar Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Meal Bar

On those days when you need a quick lunch before jumping into a conference call, grab a ProBar Meal Bar. Packed with 400 calories and 11 grams of protein, these bars are easy to replace when you feel like a mega breakout time. (Bonus: not even for cleaning.) I mean, I wouldn’t suggest eating one for lunch every day because you need some vegetables in the mix, but you do.

Luna Bar Lemonzest + Blueberry Mashup

Ooooh male. I have tried this flavor recently and they are amazing how tasty they are! If you love fruity desserts like lemon meringue or lemon-blueberry cake, die for this Moon Bar Mashup combo. Impregnated with flavors of lemon, blueberry, and vanilla flavored with organic rolled oats, it’s like a delicious explosion in the mouth.

Clif Bar Nut Butter Filling – Chocolate Hazelnut

Time of Truth: Thanks to my unknown college years, I’ve sworn in the Clif Bars for thirty years. I ate so many of them that I could just look at another Clif bar without turning green. But, Clif created these buttermilk bags full of nuts and my life has changed. The outside of the bar is like a traditional Clif conjunction, but the interior is filled with a wonderful chocolate hazelnut that reminds me of a Gusher, only better. Try it, then report.
