Summer Snackation Series No. 2: It’s A Picnic!

The second in our "Snackation" series of favorite summer mini-getaways and the tastiest snacks to pair with ‘em.

Time to grab that pic-a-nic basket, Boo-Boo. This snackation’s a walk in the park* with mouth-watering indie picks: 

1. Stemless Wine Glasses

Kick things off with something to drink - we vote for a good bottle of indie red! Break out Govino’s stemless glasses, earth friendly, reusable and totally lightweight. Perfect for picnics.

2. Kettle Corn Pipcorn

Now, some nosh. Light and airy kettle corn? Pipcorn does it! They pop mini-kernel corn gets by hand in small batches, with just a little olive oil, plus light brown sugar and a hint of salt. We’re obsessed.

 3. Mini Salami

Olli Salumeria’s cute salamis are made from high-quality heritage breed pork. The thin, natural casing means there’s no need to peel – just slice or gobble by the Mouth-full!

 4. Hunter Cheddar

This nibble-worthy, no-frills, sharp Cheddar from Plymouth is super-smooth and sliceable. Or, it’s easy to break off into bite-size chunks if you’re starving.

 5. Apple Caramelized Onion Spread

Savory-sweet and kissed with cardamom, The Gracious Gourmet’s caramelized onion and apple spread is a delicious topper.

 6. Horseradish Mustard

A. Bauer's classic mustard recipe gets a spicy boost from fresh horseradish, with a perfect texture somewhere between smooth and grainy. A dab of this is excellent with cheese.

 7. Organic Cranberry Hazelnut Crisps

Pile and spread it all on thin and crispy crackers from Potter’s, baked with sweet-tart cranberries and crunchy hazelnut, plus a sprinkle of nutty seeds and oats.

 8. Chocolate Gingersnap Cookies

Every outing needs dessert. Go for Whimsy & Spice’s thin, excellently crunchy snaps balancing deep cocoa, sweet molasses and bright ginger.
