Road Trip Snack Ideas

We haven’t been on a road trip in over three years! We drove to Cali for my sister-in-laws wedding over the weekend. I enjoyed the drive more than I thought I would.
We stopped 5 times which was nice; my butt wasn’t numb by the end of the trip. It took way longer than flying, but we made some good memories. What a nice, extended weekend; just before I start working. EEEk!
After putting much thought into our road trip menu, this is what we came up with. Since it’s the season for traveling, I thought this might be helpful to you. Now what the heck do I pack for the road home?
How To Plan Road Trip Snacks:
This flavored water warrants it’s own post, but since we are having way too much fun to be stuck in front of a computer screen all day, I tossed it in with this one. I’ve been crazy about this stuff for months. It’s so simple! There’s no sugar in it but somehow it’s just perfect and incredibly refreshing.
We transferred this to our Nalgene bottles and chugged them down, except we should have taken some water bottles with us. (Ran out and drank Gatorade the rest of the way).
The awesome thing is, you can refill them with just a bottle of plain water which will be flavored by your mix-ins and be just as amazing (do the same thing at home; just refill your pitcher all week long). Being the geniuses that we are, we didn’t take any water bottles along. 🙁 Boo
Bring on the JUNK FOOD!! The salt and vinegar chips gave me some heartburn but I couldn’t stop! Those of you who love these will understand.
For the record, I hate cold cut sandwiches, but I loved these! It’s amazing how good deli meat makes the difference. I used a Boars Head turkey meat from Fred Meyer (it’s kinda pricey $9-$10/lb), but half a pound makes 2 bursting with meat sandwiches (the only way I like ’em). Oh and this Boars Head Gourmaise is delicious; it really makes the sandwich quite tasty!
We also packed some fruit (and hoped we wouldn’t get arrested at the border)
This was the miscellaneous pile. In case a certain toddler wanted choices.
So that’s it! We ate probably 2/3 of this loot. Thankfully it was semi-healthy.
Hope this gave you some ideas for your next road trip. Happy traveling!
