You may want to check out Costco or Sam's Club. Might be a little cheaper...

I've made small packs using my sealer-mealer machine. It doesn't care where you make a seal - take a bag and divide into smaller sizes. Not cheap and can be a pain to fill but works well and they are tough/durable.

Justin's chocolate hazelnut butter blend isn't too bad tasting either, a 1.15 oz squeeze pack for 78 cents at Walmart. 180 calories per packet (fat cal 130) , 4g of protein. It's thick and squeezes out like a little turd, but tasty. I put a packet in the freezer for 30 min to see how hard it would be to squeeze out the contents, it was a little difficult but it warms up fast in your hands. I guess a field test will follow this up tomorrow.

The Honey PB packet is 46 cents @ 1.15 oz.

What is the advantage of these versus everyday ziplocs you can buy in the local grocery store?
I use freezer bags for cooking in (e.g., couscous & ramen) and they work great. Note: I do keep an empty mtn house (or something similar) to put the ziploc of hot water/food into to help keep it hot.
I put peanut butter in my oriental ramen all the time too.

Dex, personally I would put peanut butter into a snack bag zippy. Wouldn't be too hard to add chocolate, and it wouldn't be that hard to lick out the contents.


I have found small ziplock bags hard to find in stores. A larger ziplock bag would mean a lot of peanut butter!

You can find small ziploc baggies (several different sizes) at a craft store, such as Hobby Lobby or Michael's. They are usually located in the bead section/aisle. I have some that are about 2.5" x 4", there are some that are smaller too.
