13 Feb 9 Awesome Trader Joe’s Snacks To Help You Fly Like A Pro
These 9 portable products that you can pick up at Trader Joe’s will have you traveling like a pro. Although it might be shocking to some, bringing that full-sized rotisserie chicken to your economy seat might not be the best choice, but these items are how savvy travelers do it.
Trail Mix & Nuts (Obviously)
Pick your favorite – nuts with chocolate, small packs of raw almonds, or Tempting Trail Mix (a mix of chocolate, tart cherries, peanut butter chips, almonds, and cashews). Whatever you choose, you’re getting a healthy hit guaranteed to control your hunger.
Pitted, Salted Manzanilla Olives – “Just a Handful of Olives”
A savory snack that can turn the free pretzels and bar cart selection into a proper in-air happy hour.
Forget the “reduced guilt” tagline on the box– these are wonderfully addicting, lightly salted, crunchy bites. You will eat the whole box in one sitting, so just prepare yourself.
Organic String Cheese
Stash a couple of pieces of organic string cheese for the flight, and you’ll have a protein-packed, portion-controlled snack. These cheese sticks are great paired with salty pretzels or eaten plain. Always a travel pro choice.
Bars. All Of The Bars.
A must-have in every plane bag is your favorite granola bar or energy bar. Most Trader Joe’s locations carry a variety of bars, like the popular Quest and Luna bar brands.
Freeze Dried Fruit
Blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, and more – when you need a shot of antioxidants and a bland airport fruit cup won’t do, Trader Joe’s freeze-dried fruit is the answer. Kids love them! Bring a wet wipe to clean fruit-stained fingers.
These chewy cookies are the perfect finale to an airplane meal, rich with brown sugar, cinnamon, and ginger – you can skip the mousse or plastic-wrapped brownie. You may also like the Triple Ginger Snaps – they are strong enough to settle a queasy stomach and terrific with morning tea or coffee.
Upon Arrival – Fig & Olive Crisps And Meyer Lemon Cookie Thins
If you’re going overseas where Trader Joe’s is virtually unknown, pack these cult favorites in your bag for an inexpensive, but truly delicious, peek into American grocery store behavior. The fig & olive crisps are a cocktail party stand-out (with a variety of cheeses of course), and it is impossible to eat just one lemon thin. If you keep them in the box, they travel well.
