  1. Dessert Delights: No picnic is complete without a delicious dessert. Treat yourself to Mariani Fruit Chips dipped in melted dark chocolate or dip them in a creamy yogurt dip with a dash of maple syrup and vanilla. The crispy texture of the chips combined with the lusciousness of chocolate or yogurt creates a heavenly sweet indulgence.
