What is a Snackle Box?

A snackle box is essentially a compartmentalized box filled with snacks, and oftentimes a tackle box (otherwise used for fishing) is used. These snack boxes are perfect for taking on the go and can be used as an alternative to bringing a large bag of snacks along with you. These are perfect for a variety of summer and winter activities with no need for any sort of recipe to follow.

The term Snackle Box is a play on words between the words Snack and Tackle coining the term Snackle.

Fruits like grapes and strawberries can easily be frozen beforehand in ziplock bags. Other items like cheese sticks and vegetables can also be kept cold by putting an ice pack on the top or the bottom of the tackle box inside a cooler.
