Go Picnic meals have got to be the best gluten-free on-the-go meal out there! They are nutritious, delicious and so easy. We recently took a trip to Disneyworld and knowing that we would be in airports, hotels & rental cars, I literally packed an entire bag (40 to be exact) worth of gluten-free Go Picnic meals for myself, hubby and two boys. I really wanted us to have yummy food to eat wherever we were and for myself, I needed it to be safe. I also knew that while Disney dining gluten-free rocks, I wanted to ease our food budget with at least one meal a day being a much cheaper (and delicious) Go Picnic box option. I got a voucher when I purchased $40 worth of product for $20 on Groupon then bought meals that were on sale. In total, I ended up paying under $3 per box…lot’s cheaper than a $7-$14 quick service meal at Disneyworld.
We have always loved the turkey stick and crunch meal that comes with bbq Popchips and the turkey pepperoni meal as well. Both are ones that all of us enjoy eating, especially my boys. I also adore the hummus meal as I think the hummus is great on the Crunchmaster crackers and topped with the crunchy edamame. Recently I got to try out some of the new flavors available in the gluten-free line and I was quite impressed! Here are my thoughts.
Edamame Kale Dip with Plantain Chips Meal- I thought this was a fun meal with unique ingredients that you couldn’t normally get in a quick box lunch. I liked that it was a little more sophisticated in flavor and thought the dip and plantain chips went very well together. The fruit strip it came with was SO good! I also really like the little trail mix.
Black Bean Dip with Plantain Chips Meal- I was a big fan of this bean dip. I thought the Caribbean inspired flavors of black beans and plantains was a great idea. I loved the fruit and nut packet as it included one of my favorite things, sweetened banana chips. 😉 I also really enjoyed the little candies and so did my boys. They kept trying to take them from me…
Sunbutter and Crackers Meal- This meal was wonderful for both my boys and myself. It was simple enough for their little tastebuds but also flavorful enough for mine. We loved the fruit leather and thought it’s flavor was the best we’ve had before. The boys also loved that it came with a chocolate chip cookie.
Yep, that’s my bag with cases of Go Picnic goodness on it’s way to the most magical place on Earth.
