Any time you head out on a long hike, it’s important for you to be fully prepared. There are a lot of things that go into this preparation. You should, for example, make sure you wear the right clothes, and have layers that you can easily shed or add if the weather changes at all while you’re out on your hike. You should always be prepared for any type of weather shift, including precipitation. You should have plenty of water with you, some basic first aid supplies and, of course, some snacks to keep you fueled on your journey.
There are a lot of types of snacks that are great for specific purposes. Jerky, for example, gives you some quick protein. Nuts and trail mix can also give you a good combination of some important minerals and nutrients, and you don’t need to worry about them going bad while you’re out on the trail.
We have some specific products we like to recommend to hiking enthusiasts to bring along when they need to be able to quell their hunger. One example is the line of Grab the Gold® Bars, which come in a pair of flavors: chocolate peanut butter and peanut butter and jelly.
Here is a quick overview of some examples of the benefits of these bars, which should give you an indication of why we so frequently recommend them to hikers.
Great health properties
These are not your old-fashioned, overly synthetic protein bars. Instead, these bars are made with completely real food, including organic oats, natural peanut butter and non-GMO soy flour. The whole idea behind the Grab the Gold® bars was to have food made with simple ingredients that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating. They still provide you with enough energy to last you for hours on your hike, and will fill you up quickly.
The chocolate peanut butter bar has rich, organic semi-sweet chocolate, and contains 195 calories, 18 grams of carbs, 11 grams of protein and seven grams of fiber. This is the company’s original snack bar, developed in 1990. It features a smooth, tasty peanut butter base, and has organic chocolate chips and thick-cut organic oats mixed into it. Then it’s all topped with a bit of golden brown rice syrup. It tastes like a cookie, but it hasn’t been baked, and it’s way better for you!
The peanut butter and jelly bar, meanwhile, is made with soft cranberries infused with apple juice. It contains 195 calories, 18 grams of carbohydrates, 11 grams of protein and seven grams of fiber. This flavor just came out this year—it took 28 years, but Grab the Gold® decided to introduce a new flavor, and it has been a huge success. In addition to the peanut butter and thick-cut oats, it mixes in the soft cranberries for a flavor that tastes just like peanut butter and jelly, but without the high calorie count.
