At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

Granola and hikers go together as well as—well, granola and milk. The benefits of this snack on the trail are straightforward: it’s a highly-caloric, lightweight, energy-boosting snack that just tastes good. Granola has become the ubiquitous hiker’s snack, but many hikers will tell you that enjoying a package of small batch granola and milk on the trail is a joy worth any hassle. Our team at this year’s Outdoor Retailer showcase checked out a company that might be making out of the bar granola more accessible.

This Brand Makes Easy-to-Eat Small Batch Granola For The Trail or the Table

Avalanche Swiss Granola wants to give adventurers the option to enjoy granola at its finest. The brand specializes in grab-and-go packages of Swiss-style (not just a label, the granola is actually made in Switzerland!) granola. The company’s small batch granola comes certified as GMO free, vegetarian, and kosher—labels that come from the all-natural ingredients used.

Beyond the company’s commitment to offering good-for-you granola, our team also saw how these packages can perform on your next adventure. The bags of granola use 3-ply packaging that is waterproof and nitrogen-filled to lock in freshness. They’re so tough, you can pour milk directly into the bag and eat a refreshing bowl of granola on the go.

Avalanche sells their five different flavors of granola in packages of six individual bags, but if you’re looking to buy in bulk for your next thru-hike, the company offers 32-packs deals as well.
