Spices in tiny (repurposed tic-tac) containers for backpacking and camping!

Originally posted in 2015 - updated in May, 2021

Back in 2015 I made this post about reusing small candy/mint containers to store your spices and similar items for camping.  At the time I put it on my site as a reminder to myself that I 'wanted' to get around to doing this.

And I did!  

Using old Tic-Tac containers (which I went and bought a multi-pack at Sam's Club for this purpose) I refilled them with not only the obvious salt and black pepper, but other spices I often use in my cooking.  

I keep some permanently in the camping 'gear' food bin along with our freeze dried pouches, etc.; but also have some in our bug-out bags.   I went to grab some out quickly and because I knew I wouldn't be camping any time soon after the last time I used them, I had used our food sealer to seal them air-tight for longer term storage.  When it's in season and I'm going on a camping trip or road trip, obviously I take them out of the food sealer bag to save room and make them easy to pack and use.

These particular spices have been on a couple overnight camping trip but also on two cross-country roadtrips of two-weeks each.  They are quick and easy to refill when you get home and travel well as they are so light and small.
