What’s in your ultimate road trip snack pack? I’m going to share with you some of our favorite snacks and I hope you share with us your favorites too!
The Ultimate Road Trip Snack Pack
We love taking small road trips and big one when time allows as well. I know the school year is sneaking up fast, and has already begun for some. It’s time to take one final road and of course to make this road trip a success we’ll need an ultimate road trip snack pack loaded with snacks like M&M’s Peanut, Doritos, Cheetos and everyone’s favorite mouth watering candy – Starburst! Wash it all down with some Pepsi-Cola and clean it up with Orbitz gum. Even Scooby wants to come for a car ride with us!
Do you like to take short day trips or long cross country trips? We enjoy short day trips on the weekends and when we can find the time to take a couple days off, we head out for longer adventures. The longer road trips is where our ultimate snack pack really comes in handy! Either way, you’re going to get a little snacky and need something to munch on while you’re out on the road and M&M’s will always do the trick.
We find it to be most budget friendly to pick up our snacks at Shaw’s (our local supermarket). Shaw’s is one of our favorite supermarkets to shop – the staff is always friendly and the prices are always great, especially compared to road side convenience stores. For those of you who don’t know what Shaw’s is, it’s a banner store of Albertsons supermarket.

- Triscuit Crackers
- M&M’s Peanuts
- Doritos & Cheetos

- New Aspartame Free Diet Pepsi

Pro road trip tips:
Keep some snacks in your door storage area – this way when everyone is snoozing and you’re driving – a snack is right there for you, no need to wake any one up to hand you a snack or a drink!
Don’t forget your phone charger! There’s nothing worse than needing to stop to buy a charger when your phone battery goes dead. Bring your car charger with you!
Pack a roll of paper towels. You’ll need them.
Bring a paper map. Don’t rely on your GPS technology, it can be wrong – and often is – especially on those back roads out in the middle of nowhere.
Don’t over-plan. Having a plan is nice, but sometimes you’ll find something to do along the way that is better than your best laid plan! Don’t be afraid to wing-it and see where the road takes you!
