With the Summer in full swing and the 4th of July on Thursday, a lot of people will be hopping in their cars and taking road trips and family vacations.  So when you and your family pack up do you pack snacks?  Here's a list of the perfect snacks to take on your road trips.

  • Sunflower Seeds

    These come in handy especially if you are driving, because you get really bored and it keeps you busy on something.

    My preference for sunflower seeds is the Bigs Dill Pickle.

    Make sure you have your seed cup for all the hulls.

  • Beef Jerky

    Let's face it this is a road trip staple.

  • Goldfish Crackers

    If you have kids, then you know how awesome these things are for the kids.

    Just make sure you get the individual packages or else you will have Goldfish every where in the car.

    That big giant milk carton container has the habit of spilling over.

  • Applesauce

    You may be thinking Lori you are crazy, but I'm really not.  It is a healthy snack and they now come individual squeeze packets.

    So pop the cap and the kids and suck the applesauce right from the pouch.

  • Chips

    They are crunchy, salty and yummy!  You can get them in individuals bags so everyone can pick their favorite.


  • Gummies

    Whether it is gummy bears, gummy worms, gummy fruit, gummies are perfect little snacks that kids and adults love.

  • 100 Calorie Packs

    You can buy a big box of these and you can get sweet and salty snacks all in nice, neat, little pouches all 100 calories each.

  • Snack Mix

    This ranks right up there with the sunflower seeds.  It's crunchy and yummy and available in tons of flavors.  For me personally, I like the Cajun mix.
