I don’t know about you guys but traveling (especially long car trips!) brings out my snacking side. I blame it on boredom and monotony but I can rationalize eating all kinds of snacks when I’m traveling that I would never eat in a typical day. I have developed several strategies to deal with this including making sure I have a good meal before I take off, packing snacks from home and stopping at places that I know have healthy options. I’ve also found that having good entertainment prevents me from getting bored so I rely on things like magazines, books and crosswords when I’m flying and audiobooks when I’m on car trips.
My dad and I went to Walmart on my last night in Georgia to pick up a few things for dinner. While I was there, I spotted these new Orchard Valley Harvest snacks in the produce section and added a few to my cart to take in the car with me the next day as a healthy snack option for my trip home.
I love, love, love that the Orchard Valley Harvest snacks are available in portioned out into grab and go sizes. I often pick up trail mix type of snacks when I’m traveling but they can be a major calorie bomb if you are mindlessly eating. A multi-serving bag can be gone in a matter minutes!
I especially loved these dark chocolate almonds. I think almonds are a great snack in general but dip them in dark chocolate and I’m one happy girl!
My favorite flavor is the Chocolate Raisin Nut. It’s a blend of chocolate covered raisins (<- one of my ALL TIME favorites!), almonds and peanuts. The nuts are perfectly seasoned with sea salt.
All of the Orchard Valley Harvest snacks are minimally processed and have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. They are also non-GMO project verified.
Each snack pack has around 150 calories and less than 10 grams of sugar (even the chocolate covered almonds). I think they’re great to have on hand for a quick desk, purse or holiday travel snack.
