hey bees, next saturday, my fiance and I are headed out from Washington to Tennessee to get married October 15th. Very excited. so just for fun thought I would check in with everyone and get some ideas for make ahead snacks for 37 hours of driving. Healthy, unhealthy, no worries about food allergies. What gets you thru a long road trip. So really excited to finally be married. Congrats to all the other October Brides

Yeah! Congrats! Umm, I haven’t done a road trip in a long time but here is what I can think of: (some require a cooler)
celery/carrots with peanut butter/hummus/dip
lunchmeat &/or sandwiches
homemade chocolate chip cookies
candy bars of any sort
pretty much anything can be a road trip food, just depends on if you want to eat while driving or if you want to pull over and eat. Then you have many more options.

Salt water taffy
Popcorn (those big bags from grocery stores, kettle corn etc)
Something you loved from childhood. This treat always makes things more fun.
Load up on podcasts!

Dried fruit/berries-my favorites are pineapple, cranberries, and fig.
Fresh fruit-like oranges, tangerines, apples

We have a road trip coming up too lol. 🙂
We’ll probably pack:
Dried Squid – Spicy
Roasted Green Peas
Fruit/veggies (apple/pears/grapes/carrots/slices bell peppers/or so on)
A thermos of hot tea
A thermos of iced coffee
Other than those, we’ll probably just eat meals on the road by stopping for fast food. Ours is only 16 hours driving. Although, might be nice to make some onigiri because they’re easy to make and simple to eat in the car.

I haven’t really done road trips as an adult…but as a kid it was ESSENTIAL for me to have pepermint candy. I don’t know why :-p

I love road trips and road trip food! My #1 must have is redvines. I don’t know why, but it really does not feel like a road trip without them. Trail mix, pretzels, orange slices, grapes, cheese sticks, dried cranberries or apricots, fruit snacks are some of my go-tos. Bring a few extra water bottles to help you not feel like death after all that sodium…I recommend trying to squeeze in at least some fresh produce every once in a while to help with that as well. 🙂
