GoPicnic~ My Review and Giveaway Event

 I recently had the opportunity to review 2 of the ready-to-go meals from GoPicnic. They sent us two free meals to review. We didn't get to go on a real picnic, but we had a fun meal at home! 
GoPicnic meals come prepackaged and ready to eat. No Cooling needed. No Heating needed. Grab it and go! For our meal it was Grab it and eat. The Booper was quite excited just because I told him we were having a picnic. We shared each of the two meals that we tried, and we both had our favorites. 

The first meal we opened was the Turkey Stick + Crunch: Classic Deli Meal. A Gluten-free choice
This meal included:
  • Old Wisconsin ~Turkey Snack Stick
  •  Sweet Perry Orchards~ Baja Blend Fruit & Nut Mix 
  •  Popchips~ Barbeque Potato Chips
  •  Niagara Natural~ Tropical Fruit Bites
  •  Enjoy Life ~Double Chocolate Cookie
As you can see from the picture, the Booper loved the Popchips. We had never tried these, but oh my, they were so tasty! I sort of wished we weren't did the Booper. I reached onto his tray to sneak a popchip, and he screamed at me, "no mommy, my chip!" Hands off his chips.
If you like jerky, the Old Wisconsin Turkey stick will not disappoint. I liked it, the Booper wouldn't even try it, but that's typical for him. The Turkey stick was spicy, but not hot. Now the Baja Blend Fruit and Nut mix on the other hand, it had some kick. I had to refill my drink a couple times, but I couldn't stop eating the mix. Very good, if you like sweet and spicy mixes. Which I do. Tropical fruit bites were also good. Now we get to the cookie...yeah it was a Double Chocolate Cookie..need I say more? I broke the cookie in half, and Mr. Boop thought that I was cheating him, so I had to give him more of my part of the cookie. It was gone in seconds! Very crunchy not a soft cookie, but we aren't picky when it comes to chocolate cookies.
We are not a gluten free family, though I try to make gluten free choices when I see them. This handy, ready-to-eat meal, was very delicious, and something I would eat again. If I had to say our three favorites from this meal. They would be the PopChips, Baja Blend, and the Cookie. It was all good, and very filling. Gopicnic offers lots of different dietary options, not all of their meals are Gluten free, so be sure to check thoroughly when ordering. 

The next ready-to-go meal we tried was the Peanut Butter + Crackers: All-Natural Meal
This meal includes: 
  • Peanut Butter & Co.~ Smooth Operator Natural Peanut Butter
  • Partners~ Get Movin' Honey Wheat Crackers
  • Sweet Perry Orchards~ Unsweetened Applesauce
  • Annie's Homegrown~ Cheddar Bunnies
  • Professor Zim Zam's ~All-Natural Jelly Jets

We had our favorites from both meals, and this one had to be the Peanut Butter. We are a peanut butter loving family, and this was no exception. The booper just wanted to suck the peanut butter right out of the sqeeze pack(which I let him do when I was finished lathering the crackers) The crackers were thick and crunchy with a great whole grain flavor. The applesauce was sort of bitter, but I'm not used to eating regular unsweetened, we eat cinnamon most of the time. The Annie's cheddar bunnies were a hit, we've had these before, and love them. The jelly jets were good if you like gummy candy. Booper has never had gummy candy before, and he wasn't sure about them. He liked the flavor, because he kept putting it back in his mouth, but when he would bite down on the gummy he would spit it out! I couldn't stop laughing. He kept trying, but he just didn't know what to think about those gummies.  We didn't eat all of this in one setting, we were really full. We actually ate the cheddar bunnies later in the day for  a snack. That's the great part of all of this being individually wrapped and  not needing cooling or heated. Eat it when you want, save it for later if you want.
