4 Things to Pack for Your Beach TripThe days are longer, the sun is brighter and the kids are done with school…summertime is finally here! Whether you’re headed to a sunny beach vacation or to the neighborhood pool, we’ll give you 4 things to make sure you have in your bag. From that suspenseful novel that everyone’s talking about to your favorite Riceworks flavors, you’ll need these essentials for a day of fun in the sun.

  1. The essentials: Gone are the days of slathering yourself in baby oil and baking in the sun. Take care of your skin and make sure you pack sunscreen with an SPF 30 or greater. If you’re getting in the water, be sure to use sunscreen that’s waterproof.
  2. Pool paraphernalia: Grab the floaties, towels, umbrellas, beach chairs, snorkels and fins for a day of fun in the sun. Remember that safety is  the key, especially for the younger kids just learning how to swim.
  3. An enthralling book: What’s better than a book on the beach? Check out’s list of classics and contemporary favorites for some  inspiration! Lose yourself in Charlotte Brontë’s classic world or discover any of Gillian Flynn’s suspenseful page turners.
  4. Lunchtime snacks: Most public beaches allow you to bring a cooler with snacks and some pools do as well. Bring some of your favorite Riceworks flavors or easy to prepare toppings for a quick snack during pool breaks.

No matter how you choose to enjoy your fun in the sun, be sure to include Riceworks in your summer plans. Our gluten-free, better for you crisps are a perfect, crunchy snack for those lazy days of summer.
