The best camping snacks for your next trip to the woods


Planning a camping trip to the woods? Yes! Camping gear is packed, campfire meals prepped, and on-the-go meals ready, but what about snacks?

Camping snacks are fuel to keep you going on your active days out. They can be foods that take a little preparation and can be enjoyed as a communal activity, such as those that are ready to eat like crisps. But what foods are easy for camping? What snacks to take to camp? Choosing the best camping snacks can be challenging. Storage space is a factor, so ready-to-eat foods that are quick and easy to eat are best.

Easy snacks for camping

What is the most common camping food? Easy snacks.

What are the best camping snacks to buy? The easiest snacks are ones that are portable, don’t need refrigeration, and keep well. So, for that reason, crisps like the Hardbite handcrafted-style chips 150g for $2.97 from the new Giant Tiger flyer starting tomorrow are ideal. You can eat them as is or even make them into a meal by adding beef chilli and grated cheddar cheese to the bag (Yes! It’s fewer plates). It’s like having a bag of nachos. Once you have all the snacks and drinks ready, use our handy tips to keep your drinks and camping snacks cool.
