Best beach/cooler snacks?

What keeps your family happy (and somewhat happy), I'm thinking frozen yogurt, string cheese, fruit, water, juice....any other ideas?

  • Grapes, cut up fruit, watermelon, lemonade or make sun tea there on the beach. (a few gallons of frozen water for drinking). cucumbers, radishes, hummus, lettuce wraps, caprese salad, pretzels.

  • I think what you mentioned is great. You could get the gogurts and freeze them.

  • chips, cookies, Little Debbies.

    LMAO. JK, JK. :-D

    You could make sandwiches, cut them into fourths and put them in a ziplock so the water doesn't get soggy. I would do that (without the cutting) for my husband because he needs more than snacks. LOL

  • fruit snacks? granola bars?

    Answer by MommyH2 at 3:00 PM on Jul. 21, 2010

  • A lot of water. Nothing with a ton of salt or that is going to make you more thirsty. You are already out in the sun which makes you thirsty wnough. Apples, carrots and celery keep great in the cooler. Now of course, if you have a house right there at the beach you can keep all that yummy frozen stuff there. But a cooler isn't going to keep everything fresh and frozen and cool for a long time. Granola bars are good also. Have fun!!

  • Granola bars, bottles of plain or flavored water, carrots packed well with ice.
