GoPicnic Kids Fun Food Care Package Review and Giveaway

I pack lunch for my kids. I’m also often on the go. So, I’m always looking for healthier snack alternative, other than the obvious, but very nutritious and tasty fruits and vegetables. GoPicnic sent me a care package to taste and review and I was more than happy to use my taste buds for a good review.

What’s in the box? I received the GoPicnic Kids Fun Food Care Package which includes:
· Old Wisconsin Turkey Snack Bites, 6 oz
· Original Popchips, 3 oz
· Surf Sweets Gummy Bears, 2-0.9 oz packs
· Mrs. May’s Sunflower Crunch, 5 oz
· Enjoy Life Very Berry Chewy on the go Bars, 5 oz
It usually comes with a box of
· GoPicnic Turkey Pepperoni + Crackers, 2.99 oz
Instead it came with a box of Turkey Stick + Crunch (Turkey stick, B-que flavored Pop Chips, dried apricots, Naja blend snack, and an organic chocolate square) instead.

First impressions: Food! Pop Chips? A large bag of Pop Chips! I’ve always wanted to try Pop Chips. So, I did. What a tasty and crispy bag of chips. My intention was to not share with my husband, but he looked at me with his puppy eyes and I gave in and let him have a few chips. He said, “These are really good!”

He liked them so much he waited until I was distracted and snatched a few more. I agree they were very good. I gave the turkey bites and the gummy bears to my kids and they asked for some more the next day. The sunflower crunch was delicious. I wanted more after I finished it. I’d love to have some of this stuff in bulk. The Berry Chewy Bars was a little dry but other than that had a great flavor and texture to it. I wanted more of this too.

In the TS+C box I enjoyed a turkey stick of my own. I’ve never had a turkey stick before. I would have liked it to be a bit chewier, but other than that it had a very good flavor. The small bag of b-que Pop Chips was tasty. The apricots were not my favorite. Apricots to me should be sweet (naturally). The Naja blend snack had a unique taste. It took my taste buds a little while to get use to it, but then I really enjoyed it. The organic chocolate was also not my favorite, but it wasn’t bad either. I love chocolate.

All the snacks were healthier alternatives to what is on the market today. Many of the snacks came in eco-friendly packaging. They were all convenient to carry and perfect for on the go, kids lunches, or afternoon snacks. The prices are not too bad either.

To buy visit Amazon.com and if you subscribe and save you save 15%. It cost a little bit more to buy GoPicnic from Amazon.com than from the GoPicnic website, but because Amazon offers free shipping with Subscribe and Save and Go Picnic doesn’t (unless you order $99 worth) it actually evens out.
