GoPicnic Review

GoPicnic's founders developed the concept of the shelf-stable picnic meal in 2004 for a major US airline whose existing buy-on-board fresh food service program was costing it millions of dollars annually due to high levels of waste from unused meals as well as incremental personnel expenses stemming from the need for in-flight food preparation. The shelf-stable snackbox solution that the GoPicnic founders created to address these issues generated profit for the airline for the first time in its food service history and provided customers with a reliable quality product at a good value. Recognizing the many benefits such shelf-stable "picnic" meal programs could bring to a wide array of other industries, the GoPicnic founders expanded on the original concept, making nutritious high-quality shelf-stable meal solutions available to new markets and clients.

They currently have Kosher meals, Gluten-Free meals, Vegetarian meals, and Halal meals available. GoPicnic can also produce custom meal combinations that meet most dietary and nutritional requirements, including meals that meet school district nutrition standards. Many GoPicnic meals are peanut-free, and we can also produce meals that avoid common allergens including soy, tree nuts, and wheat gluten.

The gamete of products range from gluten-free to items even the pickiest eaters will enjoy. Best of all, GoPicnic products contain no trans fats, high fructose corn syrup or added MSG, and no artificial colors or flavors. Kids can enjoy foods from high-quality big and specialty and parents can feel good about their kids eating nutritious, better-for-you foods from brands they recognize and trust when they snack.

My Opinion
I graciously received the GoPicnic Pack Kids Lunchtime Favorites Care Package. It features eight products total. It includes seven full family-size packages of GoPicnic’s favorite foods from kids of all ages - Revolution Foods Organic Jammy Sammy Sandwich Bars, Late July Organic Mini Chocolate Sandwich Cookies, Clif Kids Organic Twisted Fruit Snacks, Annie's Cheddar Bunnies and Calbee Snapea Crisps. Plus one of GoPicnic’s most popular meals, GoDeli. It was delicious and so easy to eat on the go!

I absolutely love the idea of GoPicnic! It made it so easy to grab the GoPicnic box and go! It was a whole meal in one small box! I love it!

However, my favorite part is what is in the snacks..actually, what ISN'T in them! They contain no trans fats, high fructose corn syrup or added MSG, and no artificial colors or flavors! Plus, a lot of the choices are organic or natural products! I can feel great giving it to my child!

I definitely recommend GoPicnic snacks and meals! They are healthy, easy to eat on the run, and a whole meal in a box! These are great for busy families who still want to eat healthy! There are so many great options and you are sure to find a GoPicnic that fits your needs and tastes!

Buy It: You can purchase all GoPicnic meals and snacks on the GoPicnic website.
