In the past I have done a review for Go Picnic, so when I was offered the opportunity to do it again I jumped at it because I remembered from before how much I, and my daughter, enjoyed the product.
For this opportunity we were given breakfast packs to try out. (retail for about $2.99 each). We received two full size samples, one was the “Creamy Vegetable Spread…” and the other was “Maple Turkey Sausage…”. I LOVE the breakfast idea. This is something you can really take on a picnic or when you need a snack, or in this case a grab n go breakfast. You know what it’s like being a parent – sometimes you wake up a bit late, or things just go wrong in the morning and you forget breakfast or you feel you "don’t have time to waste on breakfast" (you really, really should though!) or your child hasn’t decided what they want to eat by the time you need to get out the door. This is a great little box of yummy food that you can keep in your car glove box or pantry and just nibble as you go or toss at your child in the backseat on the way to school! (Don’t judge! It happens).
Both flavors we tried are gluten free, although they do have regular varieties too. My daughter (who has celiac, hence the gluten free choices) really loved the maple turkey. I tried the vegetable cream cheese spread with the crackers that came with it and was pleasantly surprised at how good it tasted! They had an applesauce in one box and fruit and nuts in both, so I know she (and I!) are getting balanced nutrition. They are also MSG free, contain no high fructose corn syrup, no trans-fats, and no artificial colors or flavors.
The boxes always have a fun Sudoku puzzle inside, so if you do get a quiet moment (while waiting in the car, etc) you can do a little brain puzzle! And if you get stuck, you can look up the answers on the website provided on the box!
While looking up info for this review I also saw that there is a Groupon for GoPicnic! You can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be taking advantage of that! You can also buy them at most mass retail stores, such as Target, Walgreens, 7-Eleven or online at amazon.com or their own website gopicnic.com.
I know I’ll be needed them especially now as school is just around the corner. And afterschool activities!
