10 Great Snack Ideas for the Beach

Granola Bars

By now you've noted that individually packed snacks are the way to go if you're beach bound. Two of our favorites in this category are prepackaged granola and breakfast bars. All you have to do is buy a box or two, pack them, dole the bars out and throw away the wrappers. These tasty energy boosters don't need to be chilled. And if you pay close attention to the nutrition information on the box, they're good for you, too.

Of course, for those of you who prefer homemade to store-bought treats, you can make your own granola bars. Try this tasty recipe from Emeril Lagasse, for example.
