The Snackle Box will become your new best friend for creating an on-the-go charcuterie/snack board. The perfect traveling snack solution for both kids and adults!
The snackle box has been quite the rage on social media this summer. You know I am all about food boards, so this trend was a must for our beach vacation! It came together in a snap and did not disappoint!
What is a Snackle Box?
As you may have guessed, a snackle box is a tackle box used for snacks instead of fishing do-dads! Genius idea for picnics, a day at the lake/beach, or tailgating! The possibilities are endless.
A few years ago, we went to an outdoor concert with friends and everyone brought items to make a charcuterie board. I even brought my huge board. Assembling it with everyone standing around waiting was a little stressful and cleanup was a bit of a pain.
Snackle box to the rescue! It eliminates assembling at the destination and using several individual containers for transporting and serving. It travels well, and makes cleanup a breeze.
What Should I Use For A Snackle Box Container?
I purchased a three-layer tackle box on Amazon. It is 13 inches, food-grade, and comes in a variety of colors. I chose blue because I had beach on the brain. LOL! Be sure to wash your box with hot soapy water before using it.
You could also use a single-layer organizer with adjustable dividers which would be perfect for traveling with kids. Click here for some Amazon ideas. Just be sure to check and make sure whatever you choose is food-grade.
What Snacks Should I Include In My Snackle Box?
I chose the items I typically include on a charcuterie board:
- Cured Meat – I used capicola and salami. I don’t eat processed meat very often. When I do, I look for high-quality meat without nitrates.
- Assortmant of Olives
- Crackers – Mary’s Gone Super Seed Crackers are my favorite. They are organic and only contain whole grains, seeds, herbs, salt, pepper, and seaweed. I also love Simple Mills Organic Seed Flour Crackers.
- Nuts and Seeds
- Spreads – Mustard, honey, jams, hummus, and preserves are all excellent choices. I chose Trader Joe’s Hot and Sweet Pepper Jelly. We also had hummus, but I just left that in its container and served it on the side of the box.
- Herbs for Garnish
You can include just about anything you’d like. Just be sure not to pack anything that will melt if it’s going to be hot outside. I like to make sure I add fruits and vegetables that have plenty of colors. Great for your health and makes everything look amazing.
What Other Supplies Do I Need To Include In My Snackle Box?
I packed a few little bowls, cheese knives, and a small serving spoon. I also added a few napkins and a wine opener. Silicon muffin cups would also work well to separate things and to use in place of little bowls.
Tammy’s Additional Tips
We packed our box in a cooler with ice packs underneath it. We had beverages at the bottom of the cooler with ice. None of the contents shifted and everything stayed cold.
Since we were on vacay, I kept the leftovers in the box and just popped it in the fridge until the next day. I did remove the crackers and nuts so they wouldn’t get soggy. Everything stayed fresh, and the box was easy to clean.
I’m definitely a fan of this new traveling snack storage solution! I hope I’ve inspired you to create your own snackle box! If you do, please let me know. You can leave a comment and/or a rating below, and be sure to tag me on Instagram. I love hearing from you and seeing your creations!
