ContentGrocery shopping for camp food should be exciting. After all, when else do you have an excuse to eat sugary, fun foods every day? Everyone has their own camp food favorites, but there are some essentials everyone should have.
First, you have to have graham crackers, chocolate candy bars, and big marshmallows. Sâ€™mores are such a big part of camping that leaving them out almost feels sacrilegious. Be sure to bring extra marshmallows; you never know how many youâ€™ll accidentally burn!
Grilling is a standard camp activity, so take advantage of it by bringing good grilling foods. Hamburgers and hot dogs are musts, as well as the buns and condiments that go with them. However, you should also consider bringing corn on the cob. Cooking corn on a grill gives it a nice, smoky flavor that you just canâ€™t get at home.
Corn can also be cooked in foil. Camp potatoes are also a perfect choice for foil cooking. Bring a potato for each person, cube the potatoes and add salt and pepper. Wrap tightly in foil and place foil packet over coals. Youâ€™ll soon be enjoying delicious, salty camp potatoes that go with breakfast or dinner.
Staying hydrated is important for campers. With how busy the days and nights get, dehydration is a way to end a camping trip early. Bring lots of bottled water. If your group doesnâ€™t care for the taste of water, bring some individual stir-in packets of juice, lemonade, and Kool-Aid. If you have the space in your cooler, bring some soda as well. You may need the caffeine to get through your camping trip!
The food is one of the best parts of camping, so donâ€™t short change it. Bring lots of food thatâ€™s easy and quick to prepare, as well as a large variety of snacks.
