If you are found at the Huzzah wearing a pair of worn-out, homemade sneakers trying to get off the gravelly landing, you will be in peak St. Louis summer. Drinks are an important part of the experience. Any experienced sailor can tell you this. Balance is the key. A can of booze is essential for any culinary adventure along the river. You should have something more hydrating with it. While chips are essential, sweets and sweets are equally important. These should not be your only source of fuel. Protein is essential, but it shouldn’t be too heavy or difficult to transport.
Cooler packaging goes beyond assembling all of the necessary components. Cooler packaging can help you prioritize. It can also give valuable information. These vittles are good for you if you don’t tip.
Billy Goat Cheats
These delicious, golden-fried delights were first prepared as a side dish at Billy Goat Restaurant & Bar. They became so popular that the owners opened a full-service chip shop. These chips are great snacks that can be enjoyed all day. They are thin, crunchy, and earthy.
Individual-Sized Gooey Louie Redbird Velvet Cake
Gooey Louie’s butter cakes are a St. Louis favorite. You don’t need to worry about losing your dignity if you eat the whole foil pan. The sweet treat can still be enjoyed. You can still enjoy the original flavor, which is great for civic pride. Redbird Velvet, a velvety red Velvet flavor that honors the home team’s spirit, is even more delicious. They will stay dry because they are wrapped in water-resistant cellophane.
Red Hot Riplets
St. Louis would love Old Vienna’s Red Hot Riplets made with the spicy, barbecue-seasoned magic powder. These addictive chips have been a staple on the city’s snack and sandwich menus for decades. Enjoy easy riverside dining with a few crushed chips. Sprinkle it on your favorite sandwich.
The more sophisticated river traveler might long for a picnic-style cheese-and-charcuterie plate, but such a production lacks practicality. Volpi’s Roltini offers the best of both: soft mozzarella wrapped with silken prosciutto, and a simple, one-handed meal that can easily be prepared when the current is flowing.
Vess Grape Soda
Canteen beer is a popular option for floating drinkers. For those who drink, or who wish to stay upright the next day, it is important to have an alternative to alcohol. Vess grape soda is the answer. You can combine this sweet and tart St. Louis beverage with Smirnoff to make a mixture for plastic bottles purchased at Bourbon gas stations.
Imo’s Rope Provel
They are a popular snack option in St. Louis, regardless of their real name or insulting nickname “Provel Worms”. You can add them to salads and make garlic bread. These cheese-adjacent Squiggles cannot be eaten directly from the container.
