Trailfoody Food Kits for Day Adventurers

Having trailfood ready to go, you get out the door faster and get to the trailhead sooner. Wouldn’t you rather be there already instead of futzing around for food?

Trail food has to get you to those special places, sure. But Trailfoody believes that taste is part of the adventure too. Each month, Trailfoody selects premium foods that are healthy, have the right nutrient mix for outdoor activities, and also have great taste.

Trailfoody is a monthly subscription service that sends you packages containing atisan crackers, dried fruits, energy bars, energy drinks, jerky, meal bars, nuts mix, trail mix, and summer sausage. There are three subscription levels including enough goodies for 1-2, 3, or 4 adventure outings.

Different each time and packaged in a stuff sack, each delivery includes 7 to 8 trailfood items, including your meal-on-the-go and the energy bars to power your journey. Trailfoody selects foods that are made especially for physical activity. The majority of their foods avoid artificial preservatives and genetically modified ingredients, and they are organic whenever possible.

Disclosure: Trailfoody contacted me with an offer to try one of their trail food kits. It was provided at no cost to me. My only responsibility was an agreement to complete this review after trying the items. I was not pressured in any way to make a positive endorsement.

What Did I Think?

 

Delivery of the food kits is timely. The one that came to me was sent by USPS Priority Mail and arrived two days after shipment. They ship to subscribers around the middle of each month, and to new customers nearly immediately.

It’s hard to talk about the food products themselves. I might love date bars and you may hate them. My regular hiking companion really likes jerky, but I never have been a fan. As they say, what’s good for the goose may not be good for the gander.

What I can say is that Trailfoody has chosen wisely among the food products they ship. All items appear to be healthy for you, with limits on preservatives and other chemicals. Each is individually packaged for freshness and quality. The choices are built for instant energy, truly important when you’re climbing that 20% grade.

The nylon stuff sack is a nice touch, enabling you to keep all the snacks tucked away together in a corner of your backpack. For later use it would be great for holding your first aid items, or maybe a wet shirt or socks.

Trailfoody executes this niche marketing well. Their packaging is clean and appealing, and the products they ship are of good quality and variety. If you’re a hiker or adventurer who doesn’t think about supplies until the last minute, subscribing to a service like Trailfoody may save you a few trips to the store. If you’re obsessed with outdoors preparation and organization, Trailfoody can help you achieve your goals.

 

How to Get One

 

There are many companies focusing on overnight dehydrated meals for backpacking, but really, a lot more people enjoy day hiking. Trailfoody saw a need to help people get outdoors quicker and easier by offering trail food that was ready to go.

There are three subscription plans at Trailfoody. The Wanderer is good for 1 trail lunch and 4 energy bars each month and sells for US$21.95. The Pathfinder, usually enough for three outings, costs US$43.95 and includes 3 trail lunches and 6 energy bars each month. Finally, The Intrepid includes 4 trail lunches and 8 energy bars each month, and goes for US$53.95.

You can skip a month whenever you need, or change or cancel your plan at any time.
