Healthy Travel Snacks That Are Easy to Pack

Thank you for supporting the brands that make Local Adventurer possible.

I reach around my bag blindly grasping for anything that crinkles. I finally wrap my fingers around something and pull it out only to realize that it’s just a mint. As much as I travel, you would think I’d be better about packing snacks. Most of the time, I hate dropping the cash for overpriced airport food. Plus, I turn to unhealthy options when I’m just looking to quickly feed my grumbling stomach.

We were excited when N.B.T.F. (Nothing But The Fruit) reached out to us to check out their brand new Real Fruit Bites. Right when we got them, we couldn’t resist trying them.

I’ve always loved fruit snacks as a kid. It was one of the favorite things that my mom would pack in my school lunch box, but we all know they packed in a lot of sugar and not much fruit. N.B.T.F. are made with 100% real fruit that’s picked, pureed, and pressed. No added sugars, artificial preservatives, artificial flavors, fillers, or waxes.

So far raspberry with chia and strawberry are our favorites. Since getting them, we’ve packed them on day trips, road trips, and take them on the plane with us. We never know what conditions we’ll be in, and in the past, we’ve had a hard time finding the right snacks to pack. Chips get crushed and chocolates and certain candy can melt from the heat. On hiking trips, we’ve also brought gummies thinking they would be a good idea, but the sheer weight of them wore us out.

N.B.T.F. Real Fruit Bites have been great for our adventures. They’re light, healthy, and they don’t take up much space. I’ve started to leave a few in each of my travel bags just to know that I’ll always have them handy.

Interesting Fact: NBTF is owned by the National Grape Cooperative, which is made up of 905 American family farmers. They grow sustainably farmed Concord and Niagara grapes that contain antioxidant plant nutrients. Because of these properties, they’ve put grapes into all the fruit bites.

If you’re interested in trying them out, they are available at Starbucks, Target, Meijer, Winn Dixie, BI-LO and online at Amazon. Also, be sure to follow them on Instagram.

    These look good and I will pick some up. I have to say that my go-to snack on the road is still trail mix. I have a sweet tooth and a few M&M’s in the mix makes for a great snack. Can you get these anywhere else besides Starbucks?

      Trail mix is really good too! :) We just updated the post. They used to only be available at Starbucks, but now you can buy them pretty much anywhere.

      Thank you, Michael. Let me know what you think if you try them next time you’re at a Starbucks. Happy 4th!
