Pack a Healthy (and Easy) Picnic with Hickory Farms’ GoPicnic Meal

Did you know that picnics originated in medieval England? They were once elaborate outdoor feasts that were enjoyed by the wealthiest members of society (Dine & Cook). According to the Oxford English Dictionary, these early picnics were “a fashionable social entertainment in which each person present contributed a share of the provisions.”

Today, picnics are more about spending time outdoors. Picnics offer an opportunity to step away from our busy lifestyles to spend much-needed quality time with Mother Nature. So when it comes to food for picnics, the less elaborate the production, the better. But while pre-packaged mini meals offer convenience, they don’t offer much else. Most quick-fix lunches are filled with sugar and over-processed ingredients that lack real flavor and nutrition.

Fortunately, there’s a healthier solution that is also convenient – Hickory Farms’ GoPicnic Meal. This ready-to-eat meal contains all of the Hickory Farms favorites, so it’s not only well-balanced and satisfying but full of flavor, too. Our Original Beef Sausage Snack, White Cheddar Cheese Spread, and Sesame, Caraway & Sea Salt Crackers are great for making mini sandwiches. To achieve the perfect salty and sweet combo, our ready-to-eat meal also includes our delicious Dried Fruit Medley and Cinnamon Roasted Almonds!



All you need are some beverages, and you’re all set for a healthy and delicious picnic lunch. Busy families also love our GoPicnic Meals which make life on-the-go much easier. They make a wonderful packed lunch for school or work.

In addition to providing you with some of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients your body needs, eating a healthier lunch offers some of the following benefits:
