Sinful Snacks: For the Love of Africa & Mermaids, Visit Kalahari Resorts (Poconos)

Kalahari Resorts & Conventions in Pocono Mountains is a huge indoor and outdoor waterpark. It has beautiful views of the mountains and some damn good eats! 

From custom-crafted artwork on the convention center walls to furniture in guest rooms, recorded music from the streets of Cape Town and original crafts for guest souvenirs, Kalahari has a passion for sharing the beauty of Africa with resort guests. Kalahari Resorts and Conventions is committed to giving back to the people, places and cultures that inspire us through fostering entrepreneurship and collaborating with a variety of business and philanthropic partners.

Main Meal

For a super quick and tasty lunch, Gina of Mermaid Eats grabbed a classic chicken sandwich and healthy salad option at the B-Lux Grill & Bar located in the resort’s lobby. The other side of the “Burgers, Shakes, and Fries” menu highlights a list of impressively large and layered milk shakes. Adults can add a kick to their iced beverage by ordering a “Hard Shake” like the Lost Weekend (pictured below).

Only 15 minutes away from Kalahari Resorts, snuggled among The Crossings Premium Outlets stores is a wonderland of Jerky. From beef to salmon jerky, and crunchy critters like crickets, the Beef Jerky Experience offers dried snacks of all kinds. Gina of Mermaid Eats dropped in and was amazed by the varieties. She recommends the Teriyaki Unisoy Vegan Jerky made with all Non-GMO Plant-Based Ingredients.

“Who doesn’t love fresh beef jerky!? They even had vegan jerky!”

Of course our resident mermaid picked up the Mermaid Cupcake at the Great Karoo Marketplace buffet for dessert. Her day was complete after a few more fresh treats from the Java Manjaro, paired with a Starbucks latte. Ah the life of a mermaid!

Take it one step further and become a mermaid!
