The “snacklebox” is all the rage on TikTok these days. But what is a snacklebox you may ask? Simply put: it’s a snack box using a tackle box. Think of it as charcuterie on-the-go! You can customize it any way you like — cheeses, meats, fruits, veggies, nuts, candies, etc. The dividers in the tackle box make it the perfect container. Hint: if adding juicy foods like olives or strawberries, add a layer of plastic wrap to keep the liquid at bay.

Supplies You’ll Need:

  • A tackle box – any size you like!
  • Cheeses of your choice – cracker cuts, chunks, cubes, string cheese and more
  • Choice of deli meats – pepperoni, salami, ham, turkey – really any meat you love!
  • Toasted English muffins, crackers, breadsticks, toasted bagel pieces, pretzels or pita triangles
  • Fresh cut veggies – tomatoes, broccoli, carrots, celery, etc.
  • Vegetable dip
  • Fresh cut fruits – grapes, orange slices, strawberries, blueberries work great!
  • Yogurt – any flavor, will be used as a fruit dip
  • Mini-chocolate chips (optional)
  • Pickles and Olives (if you wish)
  • Nuts
  • Candies such as licorice, gummy bears, jelly beans or any kind of sweet treats you desire!
  • Feel free to add your favorite snacks, too!

Prepping the Container:

  • Make sure your tackle box is thoroughly washed and dried before filling.
  • Before adding “juicy” items like pickles and olives, make sure you add a layer of plastic wrap to keep the liquid from leaking under the dividers and soaking your crackers or other soft foods.

Prepping the Food:

  • If needed, dice cheeses into smaller, bite-sized pieces to fit in the compartments of the tackle box.
  • Slice meat into chunks, or fold over to fit in the tackle box.
  • Toast English muffins or bagels and slice into bite-sized pieces.
  • Wash and cut fresh fruits and veggies into small chunks, if needed. Remove grapes from the vine.
  • Drain pickles and olives to remove as much liquid as possible.

Assembling the Snacklebox:

  • Add the veggie dip and yogurt to their compartments.
  • Next, carefully add pickles or olives to their plastic-wrapped areas.
  • Add the remainder of the ingredients to the tackle box
  • For an added touch to the yogurt fruit dip, sprinkle mini-chocolate chips on top.


If you are not planning to eat the snacklebox right away – it’s best to put only the refrigerated items in the tackle box. Keep the box refrigerated or in a cooler until you are ready to dive in and snack. Add the non-refrigerated items, like crackers, candy or nuts right before you serve.
