Go Picnic Review & Giveaway
GoPicnic's founders developed the concept of the shelf-stable picnic meal in 2004 for a major US airline whose existing buy-on-board fresh food service program was costing it millions of dollars annually due to high levels of waste from unused meals as well as incremental personnel expenses stemming from the need for in-flight food preparation. The shelf-stable snackbox solution that the GoPicnic founders created to address these issues generated profit for the airline for the first time in its food service history and provided customers with a reliable quality product at a good value. Recognizing the many benefits such shelf-stable "picnic" meal programs could bring to a wide array of other industries, the GoPicnic founders expanded on the original concept, making nutritious high-quality shelf-stable meal solutions available to new markets and clients.

Turkey Pepperoni + Cheese: Picnic Meal A balanced meal featuring turkey pepperoni, asiago cheese spread, multi-seed crackers, potato chips, fruit & nut mix, unsweetened applesauce and an organic dark chocolate square.
420 Calories • 14g Protein • 6g Fiber
I took the salami + cheese to work one day last week for lunch. I really enjoyed it. The salami was nice and fresh tasting. The cheese was amazing. The crackers were crispy and tasty. The fruit and nut mix was absolutely my favorite part. The mixture was amazing.
The next day I took the turkey pepperoni + cheese picnic meal with me for lunch. I really enjoyed this one too. I ate everything but the applesauce for lunch and then had the applesauce later on for a snack. It was really good not too sweet. The potato chips were so good. I have not ever had that brand before and I really did like it.
GoPicnic is really good. They are so convenient and wonderful to eat.
