I have to travel occasionally for work and have some standard things I pack for air travel, I was curious if anyone else had some favorite go to items.

I always have miniature Tabasco bottles on hand https://www.amazon.c...6B2D61TCKM1J2ZG

and some meat based snacks.  There has been an explosion of jerky, stick and even bar shaped meat snack offerings over the past few years.  They are excellent to travel with as they take up minimum space and are great at craving hunger on the run.

I like the Vermont Smoke and Cure brand of meat stick.  Cracked Pepper beef and pork is very good 


as is the Chipotle beef and pork https://www.amazon.c...csd_al_bw_c_x_4

The only one I would not recommend is the turkey based Uncured Pepperoni, which has an oddly mushy texture https://www.amazon.c...csd_al_bw_c_x_2

I don't really do air travel anymore, my travel is more ground-based.  That said, these are my "go-to" travel edibles.


King Kalibur Black Angus beef sticks.  I discovered them at Blain's Farm & Fleet, not far from where I live.  These make Jack Link's taste like old shoe leather... at least in my humble opinion.  :)


Bear Naked V'nilla Almond Fit granola.  Because you gotta have granola when you travel.  This particular kind has a bit less sugar than others.


Pure Protein chewy bars.  I throw these into my pack when I go on longer hikes and bike rides. 



Disclaimer:  This stuff isn't part of my regular diet, it's just "grab & go" to keep me vertical until I can get a proper meal.

I've been packing Builder Bars for a while. They're dense enough, taste good, and are pretty small, packed.


I've been toying with the idea of something like Soylent 2.0 though.

Honey Stingers and really good and SUPER thin. Like less than half a centimeter thin. Only downside is that they can be a bit crumbly, but if your careful its not an issue. 


Always have some in my car, and they fit great in the exterior pockets of backpacks.

Been using Tiger Milk bars, less than a $1, not thirst inducing and as they are carob coated, somewhat heat resistant and as I have a dog that has figured out how to open bag zippers, dog safe

I have added two regulars to my travel snacks.

Lara Bars, specifically the chocolate peanut butter ones.  http://www.larabar.c...-chocolate-chip

I like the simple list of ingredients, they are not cloyingly sweet and they stave of any hunger you may have if you are on the run and don't have time to grab a meal.  I take them on hikes as well.

The other is Kalahari biltong https://eatbiltong.com/

Its a bit pricey but I like it so much better than a lot of other traditional jerky, many of which have a sweet element to them whereas this is has none.  Also, the fact that it is thinly cut, shaved really, it is not a tough chew like jerky.
