Turn a tackle box into the perfect snackle box to take on road trips, to the beach, or to eat while lounging at the pool!

Snack time on the go just got a little more fun!

Consider creating a compartmentalized snack food tackle box or “snackle box” the next time your family goes on a road trip, flight, or beach trip! I love this viral trend that’s popular on social media because it’s such a smart way to take snacks on the go.

See this snackle box in action on YouTube!

The best part is you can choose to include the snacks your family would prefer without taking along a bunch of extra packaging for each item! Opening an organized box with all your favorite small snacks is super satisfying!

Who wouldn’t love a tackle box charcuterie board?

These are actually pretty quick to make and you can use up any little odds and ends in the fridge you may already have on hand! I put together one for myself in about ten minutes using things I already had on hand such as cheese, crackers, pickles, pumpkin seeds, and fruit. Turns out that coming up with yummy snackle box ideas is very fun.

Just pop this in your cooler or cooler bag to take on the go! Check out our suggestions on the best Yeti cooler bag alternatives!

What snackle box container is the best?

I already had this inexpensive Tambeau Tuff Tainer from on hand to organize crafts and repurposed it in my examples shown. I like the size of it and the adjustable dividers. If you are more particular about plastic, this 2-pack smaller tackle box is made with durable PP (Polypropylene) plastic may be another option to consider!

You can also check out the dollar store or any other big box retailer for various size options.

Is there a downside to this popular snackle box idea?

Honesty I don’t think so! I do think it’s best to compile it and eat it the same day though. I noticed any crunchy foods like crackers can get soggy the next day.

    Please check the grade of plastic on these before you store food in them. I don’t believe the linked box is made of a food safe plastic grade. Plastics non manufactured for food stored can have non-safe chemical application of leech BPA.

      Thanks, Stacy! 💕 There is a 2 pack, smaller box linked above as another option if concerned about the plastic. 🤗

    I love charcuterie boards for home and snackle boxes for on the go. My friend group took a tour of Charleston last year and I surprised them all with a personalized snackle box for the bus ride.

      Oh yay love that idea! Thanks for sharing Michelle! ❤️
