Favorite food combos…A good number of my guests are coming from out of town and I want to provide an out of town bag with a snack they will actually eat! Something yummy. Something that says I’m happy you are here and I want you to enjoy yourself…here are a couple I thought of. What are your faves?
The milk I’m talking about is Horizon milk boxes, pictured here. They are pasturized and shelf-stable.
If you have a GREAT Universally loved food combo that would be appropriate for out of town bags, please post it~

Honestly I wouldn’t eat any of the combos above 🙁 I only drink non-fat milk, dislike those pre-packaged cheeses, don’t drink soda or wine, and dislike oreos.
If I had to pick one, however, I would probably go for the chocolate chip cookie option since I enjoy the cookies 😀

Here’s the rondele cheese

Mmmmm i picked the first option, I’m a sucker for wine and cheese… BUT this is only a good option if you know they will all drink the wine, I know some of my family members don’t drink alcohol so it wouldn’t work for me. The milk and cookies idea is always good, but be aware of any lactose intolerant guests….
Haha, choosing food for everyone is always difficult isn’t it?

Cheese and wine seems the most celebratory out of them all! I’d love it if I were an Out of Town guest!

I’m lactose intolerant and thus really picky around dairy (it needs to be totally pill-worthy!). I definitely wouldn’t eat anything with the cheese or milk, though getting a mini bottle of wine would be pretty exciting. I think most of the people I know would be more likely to drink wine than soda.

I think the cheese, crackers, and wine idea is great! Otherwise, the homemade cookies and milk. I’d skip oreos because so many people don’t like them and it just doesn’t seem as special as your other ideas. I’d also skip soda, since most hotels have vending machines for that and it’s hard to predict what kind of soda people would like.

I love cheese & wine. I agree w/ the PP about Oreo’s not seeming special and I wouldn’t drink the 2% milk either (picky picky, I know)
Red wine & chocolate maybe?

@Miss Starry Night: i like the wine and chocolate idea…or maybe sparkling wine and chocolate.

Cheese and crackers is one of my favorite snacks! The wine adds a bit to it too, it’s a great way to welcome guests! That’s my pick for sure. =)

I voted for the rondele and wine, but in our oot bags (can’t wait to show pics of them here, just haven’t had the time) we put in bottled waters, some shelf stable beautifully wrapped macarons (bella cucina)and a large packet of Braves’ baseball salted stadium peanuts, do not disturb signs especially made for the weekend, and a city map. They loved them!

I would love the first option cheese w/ the 4th option crackers & wine. The wine & chocolate sounds fantastic too! I don’t know many people who are real fond of milk, especially when it’s not cold.
