Charcuterie is having a moment. The grazing board of meats, cheeses, dried fruits, and honeycombs is taking its place among the big players of the Texas State Fair. 

Tami Nevins-Mayes and Josey Mayes’ “Fried Charcuterie Board” made its debut at the State Fair of Texas as a Big Tex Choice Awards semi-finalist this year. And while Alice Laussade described it as “more like a Fried Lunchable in practice,” the dish won the Best Taste – Savory to the delight of bougie snackers everywhere. 

But while the wonton-wrapped mozzarella, salami, and apple treat makes a great snack for walking and munching, it doesn’t quite capture the full cornucopia of tastes from a traditional board. A proper picnic, dinner party, tailgate, what-have-you, needs a full spread, after all. Luckily, one local company is ready with the perfect (and portable) solution. 

Dallas-based charcuterie company Grazed and Confused has you covered for a playful, portable entertaining solution: the Snacklebox. This expandable, Caboodle-style snack container comes filled with three tiers of meats, cheeses, and the like, folding up securely for easy on-the-go carrying. And with a 24-hour turnaround, you can be party-ready in no time.
