You might think that you have it all figured out when it comes to what to eat on your road trip from Grandma’s house home to your parents’ place, but think again! Food like asap science: fresh vs. frozen food you grab at the grocery store isn’t necessarily the best choice for your long-haul journey. This post will teach you about a few food items that are especially perfect for long journeys — and some of them might just surprise you!

To start, if there is one item in particular that should be at the top of your list, it would be granola bars. These crunchy and delicious snacks are ready to eat anytime, anywhere.

1. Granola Bars

Granola bars are not only tasty snacks, but also easy to eat, so they don’t get stuck in your teeth or leave a mess on your hands. They are also compact and lightweight, which makes them perfect for tossing into the glove compartment or an overnight bag. Another great thing about granola bars is that they aren’t messy — you can take them anywhere, even on airplanes! Some people even like boiling water when they need a hot drink while traveling, but granola bars make a great alternative to tea and coffee when you have no access to heating appliances.

2. Breadsticks

You don’t need to stop by that Italian restaurant in town and order an enormous plate of their delicious breadsticks. For that reason, breadsticks should also be at the top of your list. They are a tasty and healthy alternative to chips, plus they can act as a vehicle for your favorite toppings such as cheese, hummus or peanut butter.

3. Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies can be the ultimate traveling food, although they are very sweet and it’s easy to overdo them (especially if you have a sweet tooth like me). However, if you are going on a long journey, then by all means enjoy your favorite chocolate chip cookie. And just think — all those cookie crumbs can add color and texture to your surroundings; it doesn’t get much better than that!

4. Chips/Nachos

I’m sure everyone has had the misfortune of eating stale bread and vegetables with soggy cheese and burned chips for dinner on their long journeys. However, chips and nachos are a tasty and portable alternative to these dinner disasters. They are also great for sampling on a road trip, as you can always choose the fresh salsa and guacamole options at the gas station for dinner.

5. Cereal Bars

Cereal bars work well for breakfast or a snack on the go, and are available in many different varieties. It’s also a lot easier to find a selection of cereal bars than cereal, because people tend to hoard them in their pantries like little treasures.

Cereal bars are another great option for travel. They are high in protein and carbohydrates, plus they taste delicious! (So you won’t even notice that they’re packed with tons of sodium.)

6. Pop-Tarts 

Pop-Tarts are easily packed, so they are great for road trips. They also have lots of small bites, which allows you to try all your favorite flavors. Another benefit of pop-tarts is that they are portable and you can carry them anywhere, even on airplanes. Pop-Tarts can be eaten any time of the day or night, while they’re delicious and can be easily carried in a shoulder bag. Plus, they’re easy to eat while you’re driving and they taste like you baked them yourself!

7. Pretzels

Pretzels are another easy-to-eat snack that can be safely enjoyed driving. They are crunchy and salty, and they come in many different flavors. Of course, you should go for the healthy low-fat options when you’re on the road.

Pretzels are another tasty snack that doesn’t take up a lot of room in your bag. You can carry one in the glove compartment or an overnight bag and it will taste just as good cold as it does warm. Plus, pretzels are low in fat and calories, so don’t worry about those extra pounds from all of the junk food you eat on your road trip.

8. Nuts

Nuts are a nutritious and low-calorie snack, especially perfect for the road trip portion of your journey when you have to take the wheel. Sometimes it’s hard to get enough protein that’s easy to eat while driving — nuts are just the thing! Nuts are a great snack because they’re high in protein, fiber and fat, which will help you stay energized. They come in their own container with a handy lid, so feel free to eat them on the go.

Conclusion:

You might think that you have it all figured out when it comes to what to eat on your road trip, but think again! The food you grab at the grocery store isn’t necessarily the best choice for your long-haul journey.
