Many of us are self-isolating at home and trying to limit or completely eliminating trips to the grocery store. Luckily, there are ways to get great snacks during quarantine without having to put on a face mask and venturing out to the local grocery store. You can easily order non-perishable snack options online or have it delivered by contactless delivery via Instacart or another similar service.
Nuts are always a good choice for a quick, healthy snack during quarantine or otherwise. Try a trail mix with chocolate to entice the picky eaters in your life. Get a box of individual packs for easier rationing.
Pretzels are a great, low-fat snack for the whole family. You can serve them with lunch or put them in a little bowl for snacking. Chocolate-covered pretzels might be an even bigger hit!
3. Potato Chips
Potato chips are a snack staple in many households even without being under quarantine. Flavors have become more and more diverse over the years. So, if you are adventurous try a new flavor or go with a traditional option if you are not: wavy, sour cream and onion, or barbecue.
Cheetos are a fan favorite. What’s not to like about it? What you may not know about Cheetos is that there are actually a variety of flavors on the market for you to try! My family is happy with original. However, if you would like a change from the norm, their flavors include Flamin’ Hot Chipolte Ranch, Jalapeno Cheddar and White Cheddar Jalepeno Cheese.
5. Chex Mix
Another family-favorite is Chex Mix. You can settle for the original blend or go with something different. Their flavors include, but are not limited to, Turtle Snack Mix, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Muddy Buddies and Bold Party Blend.
You are not being a bad parent when you give your kids candy while you are all staying safe at home. If you wish, indulge in some yourself as well. A piece or two is fine. Just don’t overdo it! Get a large variety pack to have on hand, one with different options to satisfy everyone in the family.
7. Fruit Snacks
Fruit snacks are both great to have in the house. Organic ones are the preference, as they are much healthier for you.
It’s a snack and a fun activity rolled into one! Although you hear stories of how these are made over an open campfire, they are unnecessary! You can also just put the bottom graham cracker, piece of chocolate, and marshmallow on a tray in the toaster oven at 400 degrees for three minutes, take it out and put a graham cracker on top.
9. Graham Crackers
Graham Crackers make a great snack on their own, not just to make S’mores. What is there not to like? It has my favorite texture, crunchy!
10. Veggie Straws
Here’s a great snack to have on hand. You can just mindlessly crunch thru a bunch without the guilt. I happen to love these, so we always have some in the house. They come in different flavors. There is something for everyone’s taste buds. The Sour Cream and Onion flavor is just incredible.
11. Tortilla Chips and Salsa
Tortilla chips and salsa go hand-in-hand and are a must-have when staying at home for any length of time, nevermind just during a quarantine. You just can’t go wrong with some chips and salsa. Try different flavors and brands if you find that your go-to is unavailable.
12. Celery with Peanut Butter
A healthier but still tasty option for snacks during quarantine is celery stalks dipped in peanut butter. It is a childhood favorite for snacking in the grade school classroom.
These snacks during quarantine are just options which you might like to have in-house as staples in-house. Do you have favorites which we have missed? Let us know within the Comments section.
