Seriously, if I have to eat one more PB&J sandwich from the bottom of my "always-with-me" messenger bag, I might diiiiiieeeeeeeee. Okay, so that's dramatic, but if you're like me and plan on spending your holiday out amongst the masses, packable snacks are a must.

The hardest part about on-the-go snacking is satisfying all your cravings while also not pulverizing your snacks to sand in the bottom of your bag. If you plan on being out and about for multiple meals or rounds of snacking, a little preparation and thought is required.

Here are a few of my favorite snacks that not only pack and keep well, but also vary up tastes, textures, and will keep everyone's tummies satisfied while we all complain that the fireworks are never, EVER going to start!
