We’ve rounded up 22 of our favorite gourmet treats, catering to both sweet and savory tastes. We also took health into consideration. Let us know which ones you love and what else you’d like us to feature on Groom+Style.

Savory Snacks

EPIC Bison Bacon Cranberry Bars, Grass-Fed, 12 Count Box 1.3oz bars

1) Epic All-Natural Bison Meat Bar – Bison, Bacon, Cranberry: Check Price on Amazon

Like beef jerky, but even more American. Epic has taken the great American roaming beast and turned it into a bar.

2) Cornitos Nacho Chips – Sizzling Jalapeno Flavor: Check Price on Amazon

We’ll take corn chips over potato chips any day of the week. These hot and spicy Jalapeno chips from Cornitos are made from non-GMO ground corn.

3) GimMe Organic Seaweed Snacks – Sea Salted: Check Price on Amazon

You might have shunned seaweed snacks when you breezed past them in the supermarket, but give them a chance and we’re sure you’ll love them. They’re actually really high in protein!

4) Blue Diamond Almonds – Bold Habanero BBQ: Check Price on Amazon

Blue Diamond is nothing new, right? Sure, but have you tried some of their more adventurous flavors? We love these spicy habanero BBQ almonds. They are fruity and complex.

Sweet Snacks

Godiva Chocolatier Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels, 16 Ounce Gift Canister

5) Godiva Dark Chocolate Covered Pretzels: Check Price on Amazon

Fancy meets functional in these high-quality chocolate-covered mini pretzels. The finest Godiva chocolate is wrapped around crispy bite-sized pretzels. Some of the best dark chocolate we’ve ever tasted.

6) KIND Bars – Peanut Butter, Dark Chocolate: Check Price on Amazon

KIND bars have kind of been all over social media in recent months. They’ve scored some pretty big wins and for good reason — the KIND guys and girls donate a portion of their profits to various charities. It doesn’t hurt that their bars are absolutely delicious.

7) Raw Superfoods Trail Mix: Check Price on Amazon

Plain and simple, but so far from dull, this awesome natural trail mix is packed with goji berries, golden berries, mulberries, raisins, brazil nuts, cashews, walnuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

8) Daelmans Caramel Wafers: Check Price of Amazon

If you’re unfamiliar with how to eat these weird-looking wafers, let us enlighten you. In the middle is a delicious mixture of cream and caramel. You’re supposed to melt it by resting the wafer on top of your hot cup of coffee or tea!

Gourmet Breakfast Foods

KIND Breakfast Bars, Peanut Butter, Healthy Snacks, Gluten Free, 32 Count

9) KIND Breakfast Bars – Peanut Butter: Check Price on Amazon

A little more substantial than the regular KIND bars, and with a bit more protein, these peanut butter breakfast bars are as good as any homemade bar you might be thinking of making.

10) Bear Naked Granola – Maple Pecan: Check Price on Amazon

Who doesn’t love maple pecan flavored anything? Bear Naked Granola is simple, well-made, and totally delicious with milk or yogurt.

11) Soylent Meal Replacement Drink – Cacao: Check Price on Amazon

Soylent is not people! Soylent is a lot of fun, though. For those on the lookout for something a little different, Soylent meal replacement drinks are a nutritionally complete package, offering 20 percent of your daily nutrition per bottle.

12) CLIF KID ZBAR, Organic Energy Bar – Chocolate Chip: Check Price on Amazon

One for the kids, these perfectly-sized bars are just right for the mid-afternoon or before practice.

For something more savory, give these gourmet olives a try. Simply seasoned and incredibly high-quality.

14) RXBar, Variety Pack: Check Price on Amazon

The most no-nonsense bar in the world as far as we’re concerned, the RXBar lists its ingredients on the front! Madness!

15) Hoosier Hill Farm Wasabi Peas: Check Price on Amazon

Perfect with a beer or two, Hoosier Hill Farm’s Wasabi Peas are crunchy, spicy and impossibly moreish.

Sophisticated Beverages (Plus Coffee)

A super-sophisticated orange drink from the makers of everyone’s favorite sparkling water, Chinotto is a tangy, complex citrus drink made to be enjoyed out in the sunshine.

Deli and Meats

Snack Sticks by Vermont Smoke & Cure – Uncured Pepperoni – Turkey – Healthy Meat Protein – 1oz Jerky Sticks – 24 count carton

20) Vermont Smoke and Cure Meat Sticks, Pepperoni Turkey: Check Price on Amazon

Uncured pepperoni sticks made from turkey. Not your average Slim Jims, these are a real delicacy you’ll have a hard time keeping hold of for too long.

21) Anthony’s Cheddar Cheese Powder: Check Price on Amazon

We could do an article on 1001 things to do with Anthony’s powders, but we’ll stick to this short intro and their awesome cheddar cheese powder — Fantastic on mac and cheese or popcorn.

22) Oloves Olives, Basil and Garlic: Check Price on Amazon

Of all the olives we’ve ever tried, there’s something about the simple combo of basil and garlic on these ones from Oloves that we definitely love. Give them a try and see what you think.
