Travel Chocolate Perfect for Your Winter Vacations

Whether you’re headed to the mountains for an awesome winter ski trip or you’re off to warmer climates to escape the winter blues, one thing is true: snacks are the most important part of travel. If you’ve ever found yourself low on cash and surrounded by pricey airport food, or in a car on the middle of the highway at least 50 miles from the nearest town sans food, you know what we mean — hungry turns into hangry and all the fun of travel is quickly gone. Avoid this common travel pitfall by stocking up on snacks before you take off on your trip. Since this is Delysia afterall, by snacks we mean chocolate. Certain types of chocolate were made with travel in mind and chocolate bark is one of them. We’ve showcased our most travel-friendly, fair-trade, and artisanal chocolate barks below. Read on, stock up, and travel safe!




Cranberry Pistachio Bark

These decadent flavors come together to create what is essentially trail mix (the quintessential travel companion) in chocolate bark form. The pistachios lend themselves to just the right bit of crunch and salt while the California-grown cranberries provide a balancing textural experience. While this bark is perfect for keeping your energy up on the road, it also pairs perfectly with fruit-forward wine flavors, making it a wind-down treat at the end of the day too.




Coffee White Chocolate Bark

There’s no worry about falling asleep at the wheel if you’ve got our White Chocolate Coffee Bark. This chocolate bark strikes the perfect balance between sugar and caffeine that will keep your energy up without all the jitters that might come from a cup of coffee. Is white chocolate not your thing? Then give our dark chocolate version a try — there’s always something for everyone!




Peanut Butter Bark

The classic combination of peanut butter and chocolate is the perfect flavor to take with you on far flung trips. If you’re venturing to places around the world and need a little taste of home, this chocolate bark delivers. Our Peanut Butter Bark is the perfect combination of silky milk chocolate and extra crunchy peanut butter — a deliciously nostalgic flavor combination.
