- Kathie’s Kitchen SuperSeedz
Love pumpkin seeds, but hate shelling them one at a time? These little pepitas are shell-free and ready to nibble, flavored with sea salt, curry, or cocoa. Pumpkin seeds are a good source of iron and zinc, and they’re rich in magnesium, manganese, and healthy fats. Mix with soft-dried fruits for unbeatable trail mix, or munch directly from your palm or the bag.
- Fairway Epi Bread
Our premises-baked, fresh-as-can-be wheat stalk-shaped bread is as delicious as it is gorgeous. Made for pulling off a knob, passing around, and repeating. Its thin, crackly crust and an airy inside mean it’s great as is; but we use it as a vehicle for chorizo, gooey cheese, or nut butter.
- Cream-Nut Peanut Butter
When we discovered this stupendous stuff, our lives changed for the good. Cream-Nut is made from peanuts and a pinch of salt. No preservatives, no added sugar, and no extra oils (not homogenized). Handcrafted by the Koeze family in Michigan for more than 80 years, this is the word on peanut butter. Spread on your Epi bread, use for pretzel dipping, or just travel with a jar and a spoon.
- Kate’s Real Food Bars
If you’re going to go the protein bar route, it might as well be as delicious as any candy bar, made from pure, wholesome ingredients, and designed to impart plenty of energy to body and soul. Kate’s bars fit the bill. They taste like dense, yummy cookies. We love the Stash flavor, made with peanut butter and dark chocolate and studded with great-for-you flax and hemp, but you really can’t go wrong with any choice.
- D’Rouco Chorizo and Sobrasada
The Rouco family has been making chorizo in North Carolina for 150 years, with lots of care, finesse, and love. From free-range organic pork, with plenty of piquant spices. We can think of no better way to get some protein when you’re on the move — pull or slice off a chunk and enjoy. Also makes a great Epi Bread companion.
- Bovetti Chocolate Bars
These fine chocolates from Perigord are artisanally produced using fair trade chocolate. Flecked with ginger, cocoa nibs, or orange peel. Superlative in quality, and reasonably priced to boot. Stash in your purse, pocket, or glove compartment for an instant and happy lift. Chocolate makes any trip better.
- Fairway Chocolate Brownies
These are serious, extraordinary, insanely chocolaty brownies. Travel blues? These will make even the grumpiest traveler smile.
- Soft-Dried Fruits
If you’re used to shriveled grocery store raisins, figs, and prunes, welcome to a whole new, delicious world! These are juicy, plump, and packed with more flavor than we can wrap our heads around. The pears! The strawberries! The mangos! A home run! Full of nutrients, too, for healthy choices during your trip.
Israeli kids grow up munching on these crunchy, airy, wonderful puffed corn and peanut butter snacks. Fortified with vitamins, and devoid of preservatives and food coloring. If you love peanut butter, you might find the bag mysteriously empty in just a few brief moments.
- Siggi’s Icelandic Yogurt
Skyr is the traditional yogurt of Iceland — thicker, creamier, and more protein-packed than its yogurt siblings. Siggi’s is made by a homesick Icelander in upstate New York, with incredibly pure milk from happy cows, in small batches. Here’s your on-the-run breakfast or satisfying snack.
A perfect travel companion! These cute fruits are easy to peel, seedless, and require no washing or fuss. Clementines are bursting with Vitamin C and fiber, even sweeter than oranges, and completely, utterly delicious.
