The Perfect Travel Snack


Before we took off to Mexico, I carefully planned out everything we would need. Since Scarlett was born, we have travelled a lot and I have come to find that the most important factor of travelling as family is snacks, snacks, and more snacks! Seriously, every time we go somewhere the first thing I do is load up on everyone's favourite snacks to make our travelling more enjoyable.

Before we left, I was introduced to barkTHINS® and immediately fell in love with the smooth, rich taste of them. Anyone who knows me personally know that I am obsessed with good quality chocolate and I was so happy to find this brand! I love barkTHINS certified Fair Trade dark chocolate because not only is it delicious, but it is made with real and non-GMO ingredients. I strongly feel that real and simple ingredients in food without anything artificial added is very important and can be surprisingly hard to find. This is why barkTHINS won my heart! They are now available in Canada in four delicious flavours (coconut and almond, almond with sea salt, pumpkin seed with sea salt, and pretzel with sea salt).

I decided that I needed to bring barkTHINS with me to Mexico. I packed all four flavours of them into my suitcase and put a bag of almond with sea salt barkTHINS into my carry on. They became my best friend on the flight because they offered the perfect pick-me-up to get through the long flight with a squirmy toddler. Chris (who does not have a sweet tooth at all) even fell in love with them. We will never travel without our barkTHINS again!

While we were in Mexico, Chris and I enjoyed all four flavours and took them to the beach with us each day to snack on. Scarlett even got to try the coconut and almond barkTHINS and was so delighted by her special treat (she loves all things coconut). Most days we would leave the beach around 10:30 am so that Scarlett could have her nap. After she was down I got to sneak away a few times to read my book on the beach and enjoy some barkTHINS. It was so nice to find some me-time while we were away and I am so grateful Chris would watch her so I could relax in the sun.

It's obvious I am obsessed with barkTHINS as they make for the perfect travel snack and the whole family loves them. They are a brand I would highly recommend to anyone and I am happy to have the opportunity to share with you why they are my favourite!
