10 No-Fuss Essentials for Happy Camping

camping snacks

Whether you’re “glamping” or roughing it, camping is a great way to unplug, unwind and enjoy the great outdoors. From trail mix to tin foil, Swanson has the essentials to make your next camping trip a breeze.

1Boom Chicka Pop Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn

I’m going camping next weekend, and this is 100% coming with me. Nice and light, not too sweet and zero prep… or cleanup, because let’s be honest, I’m just going to eat it right out of the bag.

2Swanson Organic Cranberry Trail Mix

The sweetness of the cashews and the tartness of the cranberries are perfect together. I love that there’s no chocolate or candy pieces in here so it supplies natural energy and not a sugar rush.

3True Lemon

I love ice water with lemon, but this is way easier than carting around fresh fruit, knives and cutting boards. True Lemon is 100% natural crystallized lemon juice. One little packet is equal to a large lemon wedge.

4Pancakes

Remember how we told you that you can use your blender bottle for everything? Yeah. Prepare pancake mix and add to blender bottle. At the campsite, pour onto your favorite pan or pie iron. Viola!

5Coffee

You may be roughing it, but there’s no reason to go without the essentials. Don’t have (don’t want to pack, don’t want to clean) a percolator? Grind up some coffee beans, put a couple spoonfuls in the center of a coffee filter, bundle it up and tie it closed with dental floss or cooking twine. At the campsite, drop the bundle in a pot of water, boil and steep.

6Jerky

For you, for your dog, for everybody! At least everybody who eats meat. Jerky is my husband’s go-to portable snack. Swanson carries a wide variety of types and flavors, and even some for Fido!

7Firestarters

This isn’t Survivorman or Castaway. No need for a nest of tinder or a spindle stick. Dip cotton rounds in melted wax and let dry. Toss in with kindling to get your fire going faster.

8Foil

Use it to make endlessly inventive campfire-friendly foil packet meals or to line your pie iron when making sandwiches. This Jalapeno-Tomato-Grilled Cheese was delicious, but a pain to clean up.

9Plates, Silverware, Cups and More

We have everything you need to serve your delicious meals and store the leftovers! Preserve brand kitchenware is made from 100% recycled plastics, is environmentally friendly and made in the USA.

10Bug Sprays and Bite Relief

Because nature is annoying. Swanson offers a variety of natural insect repellents to keep bugs at bay and anti-itch products if the persistent pests do manage to get to you.
