    Default Top Ten Items to Stock?

    A store in Lake City e-mailed me about top ten items to stock for CT hikers.


    This would be for a grocery / general store. So limited gear items and mainly hiker-type food.

    I really don't know the top ten, so I figured I'd ask everyone.

    Off hand, my first few thoughts are

    1. HEET
    2. Fuel canisters
    3. Ramen
    4. Cous Cous
    5. Starbucks Via (hey..a little luxury that's light and easy to pack)
    6. Jerky -protein can be hard to get in a packable form
    7. Snickers
    ?????

    Other suggestions welcome!

    Ditto tortillas and peanut butter. Cheese would be good. Fig Newtons. Cashews. Muffins/Little Debbies. Those peanut butter and cheese cracker things. If they want to get into selling alcohol by the ounce, cool. Is there a hiker box anywhere in Lake City?

    Pop Tarts, granola
    small jars of peanut butter and other nut butters - mmmm, nutella
    tuna packets, jerky
    flour tortillas
    nuts and dried fruit: cashews, peanuts, raisins, apricots, craisins, almonds
    Via packets, but especially the Iced Via. Love those things.
    smaller packages of crackers, like the Ritz tubes
    dried instant hummus and refried beans
    hard cheese
    candy - M&Ms, Snickers, etc.
    If I'm really dreaming, smaller packets of powdered milk
    and yes, fuel canisters would be great, along with alcohol and white gas

    (some people might not think it's funny.)
    There's a very popular restaurant in Bangkok called "Cabbages and Condoms

    I would tell them those "NO Bake Desserts" (cheese cake) are important.
    Bread, Bologna, Spices, dehydrated fruits, Ritz crackers, Potato chips, and Iboprofen plus what's been suggested above.
