Summer beach days are the BEST! There is something truly special about packing up for a day at the beach, ready to enjoy the sunshine, surf and sand. The feeling of the warm sand between your toes, sun-kissed skin and salty ocean air- it all just gives me such warm nostalgic feels.
The other best part of a beach day, the snacks! Jess and I are big fans of loading up our coolers and beach bags with tons of tasty snacks and cold drinks. If you’re a Trader Joe’s fan, check out our favorite snacks and drinks for the beach. Who’s ready for a beach day?! Don’t miss our round up of summer essentials from Trader Joe’s.
Trader Joe’s Snacks To Bring To The Beach
We love a good candy to snack on at the beach and it seems as though TJ’s read our minds, because the Beach Day Gummy Candy is exactly what we needed! These gummies were crafted with fruit juice, veggie juice and spirulina so you don’t have to worry about any synthetic food dye or animal gelatin which also makes them vegan friendly! If you’re looking for something a little sour check out Tangy Turtles & Super Sour Scandinavian Swimmers.
Blueberry Lemonade Sparkling Water
The sweetness of the blueberry and tangy, tartness of the lemon in this Blueberry Lemonade Sparkling Water makes for the perfect pairing. The most refreshing beverage to pour over ice and bring along in your Yeti or tumbler. You can sip sans worries as it’s a sodium, sugar and calorie-free beverage. Want to spice things up a bit? Add a splash of the spirits of your choice or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Organic Dried Mango Unsulfured and Unsweetened
We are obsessed with the Organic Dried Mango Unsulfured and Unsweetened from TJ’s in our house and can not buy enough to ever keep it stocked in our pantry. This makes a perfect beach snack that is both sweet and tropical, fun to munch on and an easy low-calorie snack that everyone will enjoy. Get your sweet kick without eating candy and enjoy these yummy dried mango!
Organic Chunky Homestyle Guacamole
We can’t have summer without guac and the beach is no different. TJ’s Organic Chunky Homestyle Guacamole is the perfect addition to your beach cooler. As a huge guacamole fan myself I have been perfecting my own homemade recipe for a long time. Store bought guacamole simply cannot compete, but I must say TJ’s guacamole is one of my favorites! This savory snack pairs perfectly with the Organic Blue Corn Tortilla Chips or the Quinoa and Black Bean infused Tortilla Chips.
Let Petite Carrots and Hummus
These carrots are so yummy and perfectly peeled for snacking. Dip them in any one of Trader Joe’s delicious dips. We really love them with Trader Joe’s hummus or the new Buttermilk Ranch dressing!
Sweet & Salty Granola Bars
The Sweet & Salty Granola Bars from TJ’s are the perfect beach snack for any age. Feeling hungry and need a quick fix? There is nothing better than a granola bar and the combination of sweet and salty flavors gives you a little bit of everything your heart desires. This nutty granola bar dipped in almond butter and greek yogurt is a great healthy snack to bring along to the beach! Love a protein bar? Try the Chewy Chocolate & Peanut Butter Protein Bars.
Patio Potato Chips
The popular Patio Potato Chips are back again with their incredible mixture of all your favorite chip flavors. Now it may seem like too much, but honestly, the combination of salt & vinegar, barbecue, dill and ketchup make for one tasty, crunchy snack. These are excellent on their own or dipped in one of your favorite TJ’s dips!
Garlic and Onion Pistachios
It’s always nice to have a delicious nut to chew on at the beach. The Garlic and Onion Pistachios from Trader Joe’s have the most delicious flavor and will keep you snacking all day long. Pistachios are already a favorite nut as is, so add in some garlic and onion flavor and they become simply irresistible.
Organic Sparkling Apple Cider Vinegar
Another favorite deliciously refreshing beverage from TJ’s for summer is the Organic Sparkling Apple Cider Vinegar in Lemon and Strawberry or Blueberry and Pomegranate. So yummy served ice cold and super versatile as they can served be with spirits, over ice, or a mocktail. Are you more of an iced tea and lemonade kind of gal? Try the Cold Brew Iced Tea Black Tea + Lemon.
Fig & Olive Crisps
The Fig & Olive Crisps are another favorite of ours from TJ’s. These crisps are the best because they not only can be paired with jam, soft cheese spread or nut butter but also just as delicious eaten plain. We love the distinct flavor and crunch of these chips, yet how versatile they are. Bring them to the beach but be warned, they will be gone before you know it!
Oven Baked Cheese Bites
Watch out, because the Oven Baked Cheese Bites are addicting and you will find yourself putting them on top of everything. From salads to sandwiches to soups, they make everything better! They are made with semi-aged cheese, are practically carb-free and packed with protein! Does it get any better than that!? Bring this to the beach to add to a sandwich or salad or enjoy plain for the most delicious cheesy crunch ever!
