Kam shares her favorite hiking snacks - via Campfire Chic


One of the awesome things about living in Southern California is that it is hiking season year-round! And, I’m not going to lie, one of my favorite things about hiking is the snacks! I love to eat, you see, and I take my hiking snacks very seriously. In fact, I’ll probably end up forgetting something important like a hat but I won’t forget to bring some snacks.

My favorite hiking snacks:

As you can see, many of these snacks are going to have some inherent waste. Please make sure to pack a trash bag when you go out hiking, even those orange peels need to be tossed into your trash bag! I like to bring either a plastic grocery bag or I pack my snacks in a resealable gallon-sized bag and use that for trash. Another option is to bring your snacks in reusable containers…like putting the Frito Scoops in an empty Pringles container or small Tupperware-like container.

What snacks do you bring with you on the trail?

    I second the honey stingers! delicious, their version of “gu” which is mostly organic honey is also delicious.

    We add KIND bars (gluten free!) and the energy Jelly Beans! And LOTS of water to wash it all down.

    While I treasure Honey Stringers for running I do find they spike my blood sugar and after and hour or so I usually crash which can be a bummer on a hike.

    Homemade trail bars are the best ! Someday I’ll be less lazy and post my recipe too.
