Road Trip Snacks: Top 5 DO’s

Going on a road trip this summer/fall? Instead of committing any snack DON'TS, follow these top 5 Snack DO's for a great family trip #ad #BetterSnacks #clvr

Hey, you! Going on a road trip this summer? We’re packing for ours TODAY!

That’s right – tomorrow, the sands and sails of Cape Cod will welcome us with open arms. And we shall make the kinds of summer memories that my kids will one day tell their grandkids – “When I was your age, I had to sit in a car for FIVE hours to get to the beach house!” And yes, it’s true. Even though we’re traveling within the same state, it can take up to five hours when you factor in Mass Pike traffic, Cape Cod traffic, and bathroom stops. Luckily, we don’t have to stop for snacks! We have that covered in true fashion. As one can only have covered on such long trips and with such hungry family members!


This is where summertime memories are built – around campfires, in beach houses, in the sand, (unfortunately) in the car, and around yummy crunches of road trip snacks. We pack them for the car ride AND the beach house, which is especially helpful for snack breaks at the beach and roaming the beach towns. Now first, I introduce our favorites – delicious new Snyder’s-Lance snack packs. These are perfect for our home on-to-go lifestyle, and our travel on-the-go lifestyle too!

It’s rewarding to have the whole family snacking better with great-tasting, high-quality ingredients.

They are the perfect on-the-go snack for any occasions, including summer road trips, beach weekends, picnics, outdoor concerts, team sports, study breaks, and so much more! It’s so hard to pick a favorite but mine is the Late July® Nacho Chipotle Tortilla Chips from the Non-GMO Variety. Scarlet and Des favor the Cape Cod® Original Potato Chips from the Gluten Free Variety. And of course, when traveling to Cape Cod, that makes sense! The single-serve size allows for portion control and travel convenience. These are flavorful snacks for the whole family – with something for everyone.

And now, of course, my top 5 DO’s for road trip snacks:

1 – Bring simple items that don’t require refrigeration.

2 – Bring spill-proof cups for young children, as well as wet wipes.

3 – Enlist your kids’ help to pack and label their snacks/lunches. It makes them feel important and inspired!

4 – Bring fruits and vegetables in different shapes, colors, and textures.

5 – DO skip the sugary, messy snacks!

Snyder’s-Lance are available in-store at major retailers and at their online store, HERE.
