What Is a Snackle Box?
A snackle box is exactly what it sounds like - a mini tackle box filled with snacks. In other words, a charcuterie board in a perfectly organized box! Each compartment houses a different treat, which gives the user the ultimate snacking system.
These can be easily made by purchasing tackle box or bead organizers. Looking for individual portions? Bento boxes are also a great choice!
Is Using a Tackle or Bead Box Safe for Food?
Food is safe to store in tackle and bead boxes when you select containers made from PETE / PET, HDPE, LDPE, and PP plastics. These are all the same materials that make up your milk jugs, yogurt containers, bottle caps, and Ziploc bags! Just make sure to read the fine print on the bottom of these containers and hand wash them before use.
What Other Attributes Should I Look For?
When looking for the ideal snack box, other attributes to consider are adjustable dividers. This allows you to customize your snack options completely. Also, tackle boxes with secure latches and a watertight seal are optimal for preventing spills and leaks.
When Would a Snackle Box Benefit Me?
For the folks who like to skip big meals and prefer to graze all day, snackle boxes are made just for you! However, for the rest of society who doesn't like to munch on mini morsels for their meals, snackle boxes can still bring big benefits when you head off on a road trip, go to an outdoor concert or play, have to spend all day at your kid's swim meet, or are planning to spend a day at the lake.
For those couples looking to go on a romantic hike, planning to watch a drive-in movie, or simply have a picnic in the park, snackle boxes are also a great way to transport your meal items on fun dates!
How Do I Keep My Snackle Box Cold?
If your fare features items that need to stay on ice, then invest in a PackIt Freezable Grocery Tote. This is a simple solution that will keep your snackle box cold for hours, and it requires no ice packs. Best of all, there's room to throw in drinks to pair with your snack spread!
Snackle Boxes Are Completely Customizable
For the parents with picky eaters, it's important to remember that snackle boxes are completely customizable, so take the food options you like best and make the box your own! This is the best way to ensure that everyone stays happy and full!
