Ready to Eat Meals on the Go: GoPicnic – REVIEW and GIVEAWAY – Ends 9/29

I’m big on convenience foods. I don’t like cooking. At all. If I can find food that tastes great without spending more than five minutes, I’m happy. However, finding delicious and quick food isn’t always so easy. With GoPicnic, you can get the convenience and taste that you oh so desire! (:
About GoPicnic
Founder and CEO Julia Stamberger first launched GoPicnic in November 2006, serving up a shelf-stable meal box solution to the costly fresh food service available for purchase onboard major U.S. airlines. Stamberger’s ready-to-eat box lunch concept enabled airlines to offer quality, in-flight food options that reduced waste and required zero prep time. The airlines were also able to increase efficiency and improve customer satisfaction with GoPicnic boxed meals.

The success of the ready-to-eat boxed lunches and meals with onboard airline clients led the way for GoPicnic’s growth into new markets. In addition to airlines, GoPicnic has created meal boxes for hotels, tourism, corporate events, and college and camp food service programs. GoPicnic’s Care Packages debuted in May 2010, which allowed consumers to send flavorful food boxes to faraway family and friends. In January 2011, GoPicnic introduced eight new ready-to-eat boxed lunches for the retail market, which are available at nationwide grocery, specialty, and mass merchandise stores, as well as online.

GoPicnic kindly sent me one of their All-Natural Meals and one of their Classic Deli Meals for me to review. The first one I tried out was the Peanut Butter and Crackers meal. In this meal, I got:
  • Peanut Butter&Co Smooth Operator Natural Peanut Butter – 0.5oz
  • Late July Organic Classic Rich Crackers – 0.7oz
  • Sweet Perry Orchards Unsweetened Applesauce – 3oz
  • Annie’s Homegrown Cheddar Bunnies – 1oz
  • Surf Sweets Gummy Bears – 0.9oz

My daughter and I shared this delicious meal. It was everything I expected it to be, plus a whole lot more. I’m a huge fan of peanut butter and crackers, however…they weren’t natural or organic! I loved it! I was expecting a weird taste that usually accompanies natural/organic food, but that did not happen! My daughter had the applesauce and cheddar bunnies. She consumed the applesauce in seconds! Definitely gets two thumbs up from my little princess! 

The other meal I tried out was the Turkey Pepperoni and Cheese. In this, I got:

  • Bridgford Turkey Pepperoni – 0.8oz
  • Crunchmaster Multi-Seed Crackers – 0.5oz
  • Copper Cowbell Asiago Gourmet Cheese Spread – 0.75oz
  • Mariani Dried Cranberries&Pineapples – 0.5oz
  • Brown&Haley Almond Roca Buttercrunch Toffee – 0.42oz

Although I don’t care for Turkey Pepperoni, I thought this was pretty good. This was ALL mine! It was alive with flavor that I couldn’t believe! The Almond Roca Buttercrunch Toffee was so yummy!
All of the food in GoPicnic meals contains NO trans fat, NO high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and NO added monosodium glutamate (MSG). I love that there was no refrigeration required! You can whip these meals out whenever you’re on the go and your tummy grumbles – at the park, on a plane, in between classes or meetings!
