Summer is packed with lots of fun things to do and places to go! For us, that means lots of family road trips, museum visits, beach days, movie nights, and everything in between. I know I have to pack the kinds of snacks that keep everyone happy during all these adventures, so I stopped by Walmart to buy snacks for an upcoming picnic at one of my daughters’ favorite places in DC – Roosevelt Island! There are beautiful monuments to see and lots of trails to explore, and the best part? It’s just minutes away from home.
My picnic menu is pretty simple – sandwiches, fruit, veggies, cheese, a crunchy snack, and something to wash it all down with. Walmart is my “SNACKATION” destination because I can stock up on all of this, and more, without breaking the bank.
Smucker’s Squeeze grape jelly is a family favorite! Combined with the fluffy new Jif Whips creamy whipped peanut butter, it’ll make a sweet sandwich. Another one of our favorite sandwich ingredients is Jif chocolate-flavored hazelnut spread. Combined with Smucker’s strawberry jam, it makes for a tasty flavor combination that my girls just love! Both Jif Whips and the hazelnut spread are also great for dipping fruit!
We have a big basket that I fill with everything we need, from plates to napkins, cups, and the food, of course! Instead of ice packs, I freeze bottles of water that will keep the food cool and serve as refreshment. If space permits, I’ll throw in a game, like cards or a Frisbee. And I can’t forget something to sit on! While there are benches all around Roosevelt Island, it’s nice to take a blanket so we have the option to stretch out in the grass if we’d like.
Stop by Walmart, your “SNACKATION” destination, to stock up on go-to summer snacks! And stay tuned for an upcoming post where I tell you all about our visit to Roosevelt Island (and our yummy picnic!)
