My wife is digging into the snacks within 10 minutes of every road trip (8-12 hours+) I look at her and say “already??” She’s like “this is the whole point of road trips!”

u/ScrubCuckoo Jun 29 '22

I agree with your wife. The first half hour of any trip is usually stuff you see all the time. It's not much different than driving to work or to see a friend because you're driving familiar paths. It's when you start getting further from your own turf that things get more interesting outside of the car. Snacks make the inside of the car exciting. And since you've already given yourself the permission to be a little food piggie (because it's a special event), you might as well embrace it and get to eating.

I do think there are some snacks that're better for the start of the trip than others, though. Jerky sits heavy in your stomach so save that either for later or as a nice little savory bite every now and then. Chocolates can melt when you stop for rest breaks, so get to that early. Sodas are tough because you want them when they're cold, but you don't want to make your bladder full early on. Trail mixes are a late snack for when the other good stuff is gone. Fruity flavored snacks are good anytime, but I personally think they can be a good thing if you are feeling snacky, but also a little car sick, so have then sparingly.

u/cumberbatchcav1 Jun 29 '22

The soda conundrum is why I always bring a cooler on road trips. Also, you can put chocolate or melty things in a ziploc bag and keep them cool throughout. Also, also, if you clean the drinks and the cooler before you go, and everyone has spill proof cups, you can put ice in the cups with the sodas or water to keep them cool, let the condensation get on your skin to cool off, or use them as a cold compress if somebody easily gets carsick.

Spent a lot of my youth going between Michigan and North Carolina, so we usually learned the hard way, but man were those some great trips!!!

2

u/craigmontHunter Jun 29 '22

I have the answer to the soda situation - I can prop a can of pop up on the shifter and stabilized by the vent and then I max the AC - it takes about 10 minutes for a left-in-car hot can to cool down to a pleasant temperature.

u/lucymcgoosen Jun 29 '22

I love the experience speaking here haha! I'm about to do a 6 hour road trip with my husband and kids (2.5 and 5) and I absolutely love assembling the road trip snacks and activities. I made a bingo sheet with words and little pictures so they can put a sticker on things as we see them (and I know we will see almost all of them!). I bought sour candies that I know my husband likes and I'll make lunches the morning of. I bought us each a small bag of chips in our preferred flavour and I'll cut up some apples and peppers to go with sandwiches or something. Road trips really are an art. I'm going to download a movie on the tablet for later on too if we need it. Neither one of my kids knows how to play games on a phone or tablet so we're doing old fashioned colouring, stickers, tracing, etc.

u/FallingLikeSilver Jun 29 '22

Hello, English person here. What is a combo?

7

u/MarilynMansonsRib Jun 29 '22

They're little tubes made out of pretzel or cracker that have various flavored " cheesy spreads" stuffed inside. It sounds weird, but they're tasty.

Imagine having something like toast with marmite on it, but rolled up so you can just grab a few from the bag without getting your hands all messy.

Always. Last road trip was a few days ago and aside from a bagful of snacks we got from a convenience store, we ate twice on the road for lunch (seafoods) and early dinner (steak and BBQ). All for a 125mi trip. 🫣

I'm from the Midwest and my first trip to Texas was about 5 or 6 years ago.

We had late lunch 45mins after we set off.

We went to a car dealer during the middle of the trip for my cousin to get her new car. We spent more than an hour at the car dealership for signing of documents and with the car dealer person explaining the important functions and demo’ed a few important details.

Then early dinner at 5pm because listening to all the stuff had us famished 😬

Truer words have never been spoken. Especially if there is a cooler of healthy snacks and sandwiches. Sometimes the healthy snacks and sandwiches are a nice break from the junk food on a long trip, but if there is no junk food, is it even really a road trip?

I am pretty sure having at least 1 parcel of candy that you haven't eaten regularly since you were 10 is required for it to legally be called a road trip.

No there’s an actual strategy to it. If all you get is salty foods like crackers and jerky with Gatorade and soda you won’t feel very good. Have a spread of different kinds of snacks, some light stuff, some fatty, a few chips and maybe candy. But the light stuff, like water or veggies, really helps on long trips cause you can eat a lot of it and you won’t get full as fast, great for when you’re bored eating

Nothing but hot Cheetos, palentas, Squirt soda and so much more.

Go for a ride, gotta get a coffee at least or on the way!

Combos for me at some point became a road trip snack. I don’t look at them unless I’m in a gas station 100 miles away from my house waiting to piss.

Unfortunately I take this advice way too much to heart, I'm a truck driver and put on weight like I get a bonus for it🤣

Sounds like that unsupervised 9 year old is also going to need to rob someone for that 100...

Sounds fun. I’m allergic to gluten, dairy, soy, oat, and sugar. You know those gas station unshelled hard-boiled eggs? Yeah. You can only eat so many of those 😩

Except now it costs $100 to buy road snacks

I’m on a road trip right now. My car smells of beef jerky, licorice, and spicy chicharrones.

That’s right because diabetes and heart failure don’t exist!

I’m 62 and that is EXACTLY what my road trip supply box looks like.

$25 bag of jerky, always gone in the first hour. Yet I refuse to buy it any time other than a road trip

And the passenger has the bag o' snacks at their feet for easy access for the driver!

Did a 3k road-trip back in November/ December. Ate more Pringles and Baby Bellas (and jerky, of course) than I’d like to admit! Seven national parks notched!

u/peneloperobinson Jun 29 '22

Yes! We're embarking on a 2.5 hour road trip in a couple weeks and there will be tons of snacks!

Strongly disagree --- it turns out the reason our parents told us to eat real food was because eating nothing but sweets and potato chip grease tends to lead to an upset stomach. And you know where isn't the place you want to be dealing with an upset tum-tum. A god damn road trip.

Child me had no interest in flavored almonds. I would have just eaten gushers until I threw up.

Sometimes is has to be like that, cause I ain't seen nobody buy them protein bars. What I buy is some chocolates, gummy bears, funyuns, a big gulp of root beer and a hot dog with nachos....
