Picnic Food You Need For A Fully Stocked Hamper
The sun is shining, the birds are chirping… and you think you might need to whack on some SPF? Then it’s time to get your picnic hamper stocked and enjoy alfresco dining in the great outdoors. Kids, friends, grandparents (and everyone in between) love a grand ol’ picnic – so get the gang together and enjoy a summer’s day to the fullest.
Your number one priority always has to be the snacks. What is a picnic without delicious snacks? A disaster. Luckily on FabFinds, we have a huge range of your favourite crisps, biscuits, cereal bars and sweets to fuel you whilst you walk, play, and snooze in the summer sun.
The No.1 Picnic Food: Sandwiches
The main meal and centre piece which everyone looks forward to. Sandwiches are a very important part of any picnic. Make sure to prepare a delicious mix of white and brown bread to offer a choice for everyone. It’s also important to offer healthy picnic food options for meat-eaters, vegetarians, and vegans – depending on who is embarking on this picnic with you. Cold food sandwiches don't have to be boring - just make sure you check out our handy food storage containers to make your life that much easier.
For meat-eaters, classic fillings include ham and tomato, tuna mayonnaise, and chicken and avocado. For the veggies, egg mayonnaise is always popular fave, as well as mozzarella cheese, pesto and tomato. Vegan options are not difficult to whip up either; has there ever been a more magical pairing than falafel and houmous? Just make sure to store your scrumptious sandwiches in a sturdy cooler box so they remain fresh throughout your fun-packed day!
Fresh Fruit & Salad For Your Hamper
For a zingy side to accompany your sandwiches, salads cannot be beat. They don’t have to be complicated recipes either. Try roasting a tray of your favourite vegetables like potatoes, peppers, and mushrooms and mix these in with fresh lettuce, crisp onions and tangy tomatoes. Finish off with a drizzle of your favourite salad dressing – i.e. French dressing, Caesar, or Ranch. And bonne appetite! You have a fresh and simple salad that no one will turn their nose up at.
For healthy sweet snacks, then juicy berry fruit salads are also irresistible. Simply chop up your favourite fruits like strawberries, pineapple, melon and apples. The combine them in a big salad bowl with a squeeze of lemon juice and a few teaspoons of sugar or honey to taste.
Biscuits For The Sweet Tooth
Who can say no to one more biscuit? Biscuits and cookies are a great crowd pleaser (and are very easy to transport from place to place with no mess). On FabFinds, you can choose between Maryland chocolate chip cookies, classic Hob Nobs, Fox’s Party Rings, irresistible McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes and much more! Legendary chocolate bars like Daim and KitKats are also available – just make sure to add an ice pack to your cooler box so they don’t melt!
Crisps For A Savoury Snacker
If crunchy crisps have your heart, then the FabFinds food cupboard is made for all your picnic snack needs. With sublime cheddar flavours from Cathedral City Baked Bites and Kettle, to zingy Salt & Vinegar and tangy Thai Sweet Chilli – these savoury snacks are not to be missed from your hamper. As crisps are already individual packaged and not prone to melting, they make the perfect mess-free picnic snack.
Stay Sanitised To Enjoy Your Picnic Food
With all of us being able to get outside again, it’s always best to take some extra precautions. It doesn’t have to be a major operation. Before laying out your hamper, why not wipe down the picnic table beforehand with an anti-bacterial wipe to ensure that your meal doesn’t have any nasty germs. Another great way to keep safe from viruses and bacteria when outdoors is to carry a little hand sanitiser with you.
