Snack Hand­fuel, which is what you’ll want to take at a time (Get it? “Hand full”?), is a line of munchies aimed at what your body might need in the mo­ment, whether a brain boost for that 3 p.m. slump or to beat hunger from air­plane-food avoid­ance. Va­ri­eties in­clude the An­tiox­i­dizer: an omega-3 fatty acid­packed mix of fruits, wal­nuts and pecans; and En­er­gizer: a vi­ta­min E- and min­er­al­rich mix of dried fruits and al­monds. All are sources of fi­bre, con­tain zero trans fat and are gluten-free. www.hand­fuel.ca

Soothe Not a fan of chew­ing gum? Van­cou­ver’s Saje Nat­u­ral Well­ness has just the thing: dou­ble-duty mints that go be­yond fresh­en­ing breath. Gin­ger-Aide Sooth­ing Lemon Gin­ger Drops soothe a sore throat (we found they helped calm the tummy after a wind­ing road trip, too), while Foodie Com­fort­ing Li­corice Pep­per­mint Drops cleanse the palate and aid in di­ges­tion. www.saje.com —Vi­vian Vas­sos
