With all the holiday hustle and bustle, hangry outbreaks are not uncommon this time of year, much to the chagrin of our significant others. Hangry happens suddenly, unexpectedly, and it won't go away until you do something about it. Fortunately, you can stave off the worst symptoms by making your own personal hangry kit to stash in your purse, messenger bag, or car.
A perfect hangry kit should have a mix of essential flavors (salty, bitter, and sweet) so you can go to it for any craving. It also should have snacks that are small and portable, yet durable enough to not get crushed when packed in a purse or a bag. Find something that is also heat-tolerant enough to handle being left in the car and you have a formula that solves Hangry.
You can package hangry items in small plastic resealable bags (with an appropriate disclaimer) or in small bento boxes like these. Here are a few recipes that'll get you started on making your own kit to accompany all your holiday errands and travels.
