Summer just screams road trips, doesn’t it? The last few weeks have been full of time in the car. We still have a few more escapades on the horizon this summer yet. I’m a huge fan of getting in the car with friends and family, but you can imagine I don’t love a lot of the eating options along the way. Besides In n Out, I don’t really like fast food restaurants. But I travel on my stomach, so you can bet I always have a bag of a store-bought and homemade road trip snacks, water, and usually my iced coffee in hand whenever the day gets started. I have a number of store-bought snacks that I love to bring (maybe I should do a roundup on those soon), but here are some homemade road trip snacks that are delicious and make road trips that much better…
Homemade Road Trip Snacks
The major perk to homemade road trip snacks is that you have total control of ingredients and the healthy factor and you know you’ll love the snack. I find snacks to be what does me in when traveling. I don’t mind indulging a bit on meals, but the in-between will be my achilles heel and if I’m traveling with friends it’s even worse since we all seem to fuel each other’s weaknesses! These snacks usually last past our time in the car and then are a great option once we arrive at our fun destination!
These little glass containers with lids are perfect for all of these homemade road trip snacks!!
