Are you tired of eating fast food when you need to eat on the go? I know I am, which is why I was thrilled when GoPicnic.com offered me the chance to review their products, as well as host a giveaway for them on my blog. I first heard of GoPicnic when I was vacationing in Chicago, and had wanted to try their meals, which my hotel offered as a to-go lunch option. Now that I’ve finally had the chance to taste their meals, I’m bummed out that I didn’t go with my instincts in Chicago, as I loved, loved, loved the products I tasted.
I received the Salami + Cheese: Classic Deli Meal, which includes Old Wisconsin Beef Salami Slices, Late July Organic Crackers, Copper Cowbell Asiago Cheese Spread, Sweet Perry Orchards Cashew Medley Fruit & Nut Mix and a Late July Organic Dark Chocolate Sandwich Cookie. This meal had 10g protein, 2g fiber, had 370 calories, and was utterly delicious, and sells for $4.99. I absolutely loved the Asiago cheese spread and was surprised at how good the cookie was, too. As you can see from my pictures, I added a pretzel roll to my meal, making it utterly filling.
I also received the Hummus + Crackers: All-Natural Meal, a balanced meal featuring Wild Garden Hummus Dip, Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers, Seapoint Farms Dry Roasted Edamame, Sweet Perry Orchards Baja Blend Fruit & Nut Mix and a Terra Nostra Organic Dark Chocolate Square. 24g protein and 12g fiber, 410 calories, and was also mouth-watering good. The Wild Garden Hummus Dip was the best store-bought Hummus I’ve ever had, and the crackers were out of this world good. It is a steal at the price of $4.99.
Lastly, I received the Parmesan Peppercorn Cheese Spread: 8 Pack (8 – 0.75 oz. cups), a delicious gourmet cheese spread that blends the flavors of Parmesan cheese and peppercorns together. While I enjoyed this cheese very much, GoPicnic is limiting me to offer only 2 meals for my giveaway, so I’m going with the other meals rather than this cheese. You may purchase this cheese is currently on sale for $3.99.
GoPicnic offers a variety of meals, ones that are all-natural, gluten-free, vegan, kosher, GMO free, and have no artificial flavors. Actually, all of their meals are made with no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup, no added MSG, and have no artificial flavors or colors. Who wouldn’t want to eat something so healthy and tasty while traveling, or even on a picnic or as an alternative to fast food on any occasion? I know I would.
You may purchase GoPicnic meals on Amazon.com or at GoPicnic.com. If you aren’t into the whole online shopping thing, you may also purchase them at Costco, Cost Plus World Market and Wegman’s nationwide.
