RVers need delicious, easy-to-eat, mess-free snacks that are compact enough to pack along or fit in a tiny kitchen. Here are some of our favourites.

Something nutty

Forget about the peanuts, because before you know it airlines will be charging outrageous fees for those too. Instead bring your own nutty snack from Betty Lou’s—an organic and delicious line whose treats are sure to please any palate. Betty Lou’s Nut Butter Balls are a favourite of travellers. Whether you want almonds, cashews, peanuts or even coconut macadamia, Betty Lou’s has the perfect high protein snack for the travelling warrior.

Something chewy

Now that we’ve covered the nutty craving, let’s explore that need to eat something chewy. We’ve all heard an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Well, how about apple cinnamon, strawberry, cherry, blueberry or apricot all-natural fruit bars from Betty Lou’s. Each treat brings with it the taste of a homemade baked cobbler. Plus, all sugars come from natural fruit and fruit juice so it’s a favorite for kids and adults alike.
