GoPicnic Review and Giveaway

I'm really excited about this review, because it's for one of my newest favorite products! I discovered GoPicnic when I was searching for non-gift holiday essentials to include in my holiday guide. After all, despite the holiday season being one that can bring great joy and fun, it's also a hectic time of year that can be fraught with stress and complications. As moms, we need products that can help alleviate the mayhem!

GoPicnic is an amazingly perfect solution for times when the holidays have you so busy you can't stop for a meal. Planning to camp out in a Black Friday early bird line? GoPicnic's got you covered with their GoTrek meal. That was one that the company generously included in a care package they sent my way. The GoTrek meal (and all of the GoPicnic meals) arrived in a box decorated to look like a tablecloth with an easy open lid. Once the lid was peeled back, all the components of a perfect meal on the go were revealed. The GoTrek comes with individual servings sizes of Jack Link's steak bites, Sheffa's zesty snack mix, a packet of dried pineapple and cranberries, a sealed slice of swiss cheese and a good quality chocolate candy (mine was Almond Roca). The package needs no refridgeration, and the box became a perfect plate to hold all the food as I ate it.


The most perfect thing about this meal (aside from how delicious it was!) is how truly portable the package is. I threw this in the backseat of our vehicle, and a few days ago when Bogey and I were stuck waiting around for one of Keep's activities to end, we shared it. You could easily throw one or two of these in your diaper bag, purse, or backpack. If you always had an easy and nutritious meal available, who would need fast food drive through?

Another great use for these would be if you are traveling over the holidays, and need something you can toss in your carryon to eat on the plane or in the terminal. Sending a kiddo off to visit a parent, and don't want them spending a bajillion dollars on giftshop snacks? GoPicnic's got you covered!

They have over 25 meals to choose from, including awesome Hummus and Crackers or Peanut Butter and crackers that are perfect for kids. Ranging in price from $2.99- $4-99, these are WAY cheaper than happy meals, and much better for you and your kiddos!

Got a loved one who is away at college, or who will be traveling by car to get home to you? Why not start their trip off right with a care package that includes plenty of delicious snacks? GoPicnic sent one our way, and we have devoured it all! The Energy Care Package included a GoTrek meal, a bag of Old Wisconsin

turkey sausage bites, a bag of Mrs. May's sunflower crunch, some Snikiddy all natural baked fries, 2 mashups from revolution foods, and a box of Annie's chocolate and vanilla bunnies. All pf the products inside were full sizes, which made sharing easy and fun! There are plenty of options that are gluten free, kosher, and/or vegetarian. I love having all the options at such a fantastic price!

And I loved how the box arrived, looking like a gift!





 GoPicnic is offering one of my readers a gift box as well! I'm tellin' ya, you'll find a great use for this on the go food, I'm positive. Shipping was fast and convenient, and I'm ordering more for our household to use throughout the chaos that comes along with the holiday season (ever try convincing a 7 year old to just. please. wait. till. gramma's. party. to eat? Exactly.

So, for your mandatory entry, visit GoPicnic and tell me which GoPicnic meal is your favorite? Mine's the GoSavory or the Hummus and Crackers. Become a GFC follower so I can contact you if you win!
