The Best Pocket-Friendly Packaged Snacks for Skiing and Snowboarding
Dark Chocolate Chunk KIND Healthy Grain Granola Bar
Made with 18 grams of healthy whole grains, like oats, brown rice, millet, oat flour, buckwheat, amaranth, and quinoa, this bar will provide lasting energy that stays with you all afternoon. Not to mention that it's easy to eat on the ski lift.
Honey Stinger Waffles
Honey Stinger is known for using honey in their products to provide natural fuel for athletes. These waffles are exactly that: honey between two thin waffles. Often eaten by cyclists, these are the perfect packaged sporting snack to provide quick fuel when you feel like your energy tank is empty.
KRAVE Jerky Sticks
The KRAVE Stick can fit perfectly into your pocket to provide a quick protein boost—you don't even need to take off your gloves. Just open the wrapper and enjoy 7 grams of protein for just 100 calories.
Justin's Peanut Butter Packet
Justin's Peanut Butter Packets are another perfectly portioned snack that only requires one step—opening the packet. Each 1.15-ounce squeeze pack is made with just dry roasted peanuts and palm oil and has 190 calories and 8 grams of protein. These are a great midmorning snack if you want to get a few more runs in before breaking for lunch. Just make sure you have some water with you, or you'll be stuck with peanut butter mouth all afternoon.
Cabot Cheese Seriously Sharp Snack Bars
Technically these Cabot Cheese Snacks should be refrigerated, but that doesn't really matter since you'll be out in the cold all day. At only 80 calories each with 5 grams of protein, these tangy snacks are perfect for keeping in an outer pocket. If you're feeling really adventurous, eat them with some apple slices for fast-acting fuel.
The Good Bean Crunchy Chickpeas
The Good Bean uses all natural foods with minimally processed ingredients to make their crunchy chickpea snacks. The Smoky Chili and Lime flavor is absolutely delicious and comes in a handy 2.5-ounce package. Crunchy chickpeas may take a little more maneuvering to eat while on the slopes, but they're worth it for their high protein and carbohydrate content. A 1-ounce serving contains 7 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber.
