 Go Picnic Review & Giveaway

 

Their Story


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.
If I order GoPicnic meals for my organization, can I include my organization's branding on the box?
GoPicnic boxes are designed to include a customized label for your organization if desired, or you can use our standard GoPicnic boxes without customized labeling. For orders over a minimum quantity requirement, you can customize the whole box, including the products inside. Contact us for more information.
Can GoPicnic develop customized or private-label meal combinations for my organization? Yes! Besides offering the featured GoPicnic branded meals that are appropriate for any market size, GoPicnic also specializes in designing customized product lines to suit most dietary preferences, with the ability to incorporate client artwork and branding on the packaging. Minimum orders apply; please contact us for more information.
How does GoPicnic find single-serving versions of all of these products?
GoPicnic works directly with manufacturers to develop single-serving sizes of interesting and nutritious products. We continually investigate new packaging technologies that will allow more types and varieties of food to be preserved at room temperature without heavy doses of preservatives or refrigeration. If you have a product that you believe belongs in a GoPicnic meal, please contact us.
Do you make meals that fit particular nutritional requirements or avoid specific allergens?
We currently have Kosher meals, Gluten-Free meals, Vegetarian meals, and Halal meals available. GoPicnic can also produce custom meal combinations that meet most dietary and nutritional requirements, including meals that meet school district nutrition standards. Many GoPicnic meals are peanut-free, and we can also produce meals that avoid common allergens including soy, tree nuts, and wheat gluten. Minimum order quantities apply, please contact us for more information.
Can GoPicnic include products other than food products in the picnic boxes?
Yes. GoPicnic can also create custom promotional boxes that include amenities (beauty/hygiene, health products, etc.) and other product samples. Please contact us for more information.

Go Picnic was nice enough to send me two meals, they are offering a giveaway of two meals to a winner on my blog too.

I chose the

Salami + Cheese: Classic Deli Meal

A balanced meal featuring beef salami slices, organic crackers, Asiago cheese spread, fruit & nut mix and an organic dark chocolate sandwich cookie.10g Protein • 2g Fiber • 370 Calories
and the

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.
