Snacking Smart on a Road Trip

If you’re craving a snack when you’re on the road, it is important to opt for something healthier instead a sweet treat. After years and years of travelling for fun and for work, one of the most important things that I have learnt is the importance of eating well while you’re on the go. This is also great to have as an option to avoid the unhealthy and expensive options while eating on the road, in the airport or on the touring around your vacation destination.

Do you ever find yourself on a road trip, miles from the nearest rest stop with hunger pangs creeping up on you? During your next summer trip, instead of snacking on something sugary,  KRAVE Gourmet Jerky is the perfect elevated snack. Straight from California’s wine country, KRAVE is gourmet jerky exploding with delicious flavour, made using only simple and familiar, high-quality ingredients. It’s about to become your new favourite snack.

What hooked me on my first bite of KRAVE Gourmet Jerky was the flavour. Double marinated and then baked to lock in moisture, KRAVE is made with roasted meats, with flavours ranging from sweet to spicy. This gluten-free snack is also a good source of protein and made with 30% less sodium than other jerky, making it the perfect on-the-go snack. Sold in a handy resealable pouch, let KRAVE help you feel full in between meals without the guilt.

KRAVE Gourmet Jerky is available at Shopper’s Drug Mart, Loblaws, Sobeys, London Drugs, Jean Coutu, Overwaitea Food, Federated Coop or online.
