Trail Chef: Premium On-the-Go Fuel

Fill the tanks with these 5 new trail snacks.

by: BACKPACKER Editors



KIND Blueberry Pecan + Fiber Bar
Odwalla Blueberry Swirl Superfood Bar
Blue is the new black, at least when it comes to berries. A host of new snacks include this fruit once confined to the muffin realm. One of our favorites is KIND’s Blueberry Pecan + Fiber bar ($2; kindsnacks.com), which delivers a sweet-nutty crunch of almonds, blueberries, raisins, pecans, cashews, and honey. Biting into it, you feel like you’re eating real food, rather than an amalgam of inscrutable ingredients you can’t pronounce but that will most likely give you gas later that the day. Caveat: These bars aren’t suited for most winter hiking, since a frozen almond is apt to chip a tooth. For chilly days (or to get back to your muffin-y roots), opt for Odwalla’s new Blueberry Swirl Superfood Bar ($1.39, odwalla.com), which is equally delicious and has oats, so it stays soft in cold temps.
