Do you carry snacks in your wallet? Why not!?! If your wallet travels everywhere with you, shouldn’t you be prepared just in case? What happens if you decide to go on a hike, or if you’re stuck waiting for a table at a busy restaurant and you need a little something to tie you over? Chances are pretty good that you’re going to have your wallet with you in these types of scenarios, so keep an ultralight snack stored for just in case situations. These are Adventure Dining Guide’s top 5 ultralight snacks that are so light they can be stored inside a wallet.

If you come across 0.6 oz packages of Almond Butter, stock up! Eating one pouch is about the same as eating a handful of almonds. Barney Butters Vanilla and Espresso
Snack Packs are a great pick-me-up and most stores sell them for around 99 cents each. One tip, do not fold the almond butter in half when you store it in your wallet. Folding will add extra tension to the packaging, making it more likely to burst open. Instead let the almond butter packaging form to the natural bend in the wallet.

This final snack is a little unique, but with proper testing you will be able to perfect your very own personalized powdered smoothie. Simply start with a small bag that has a zip seal closure, like the one that holds extra buttons when you purchase a new shirt. Then add your favorite powders to the bag, seal and store. When you are ready to use, dump powder into a bottle containing water or milk, shake, and viola, you have a smoothie from your wallet. The flavor combinations are endless, but here are some ADG creations for inspiration:
Mexican Hot Chocolate: Coconut Powder, Cacoa, Cayenne Pepper, Powdered Sugar
