Favorite Fall Activities

October 30, 2014

It’s easy to see why Fall is many peoples favorite season. The cooler weather, the football games, and the beautiful foliage beckon you outdoors. You might find yourself more active than ever! We are always looking for the perfect snack for these activities and Grabeez® is an all-star option. Grabeez® is a re-sealable cup that is offered in twelve varieties of nuts, snack mixes and candies. Designed to provide healthier snacking options in on-the-go portable packaging, Grabeez® is the perfect choice to bring along on your adventures this Fall. We’ve listed some of our favorite fall activities and hot spots, along with a recommended Grabeez flavor. Each activity is based in one of Tropical Foods’ six locations:

  • Atlanta, GA
    Atlanta has some beautiful parks downtown, such as Piedmont Park, that are perfect spots to enjoy the fall beauty. If you’re looking to get out of the city for the day, head out about an hour north of Atlanta to the small town of Ellijay, on the edge of the Chattahoochee National Forest. Ellijay is known as the  “Apple Capitol of Georgia,” and there are plenty of apple orchards to choose from. RECOMMENDED GRABEEZ®: Banana Split
  • Charlotte, NC
    In addition to being the home of the Tropical Foods headquarters, Charlotte also houses the U.S. National Whitewater Center. One of the most unique outdoor facilities, the USNWC’s 500+ acres offer a wide variety of outdoor activities for all ages and skill levels. Although whitewater rafting is closed after the summer, you can still enjoy flatwater kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, rock climbing, zip lines, ropes courses, a canopy tour, and mountain biking on the 25+ mile trail system. For those less adventurous, enjoy the views from the on-site restaurant and bar. You can even pick up Grabeez in the gift shop. RECOMMENDED GRABEEZ®: Diet Delight

  • Dallas, TX
    If beer and music is more your scene, head over to the outdoor Untapped festival in downtown Dallas. With over 80 breweries and 300+ beers, there is definitely something for everyone. The annual festival’s music headliner this year is Cake along with a bunch of other great bands and singers. RECOMMENDED GRABEEZ®:Buffalo Nuts (Like there was any other option?)
  • Memphis, TN
    With a city known for barbecue, sometimes you need an outdoor activity to burn off those delicious calories! Luckily, Memphis offers The Shelby Farms Greenline (often referred to as the Memphis Greenline). It’s a 6.7 mile trail that runs from Shelby Farms to Midtown. It’s a beautiful trail that was built over abandoned railway and has nine access points around the city. Walk, run, or bike the trail and be sure to bring your favorite snack along to refuel.  RECOMMENDED GRABEEZ®Sunburst
  • Orlando, FL
    A trip to Orlando isn’t complete without visiting one of the top tourist destinations in the world. Luckily, Fall is one of the best times to visit Disney World with much lower crowds and discounted hotels. Enjoy Halloween decorations, special events, the Food & Wine Festival, and much more during this season. Come in November, and you’ll even get an early taste of the Chritmass festivities without the winter weather and crowds. Tropical products can also be found within Disney World and snacks can be brought into the parks. RECOMMENDED GRABEEZ®: Sour Neon Worms
  • Washington, D.C.
    Although our Nation’s capital is known for the cherry blossoms of Spring, Washington, D.C.  is also exceptionally beautiful in the Fall. Stay in the city and enjoy a walking tour of the monuments and museums that make this city so unique. D.C. also offers some wonderful trails and running paths that jet out from the city to explore a bit of nature. RECOMMENDED GRABEEZ®Wasabi Explosion
