Must-Have Munchies For Your Next Summer Road Trip

Admit it — one of your favorite parts of a road trip is the anticipation of all of the snacks you are going to consume. Because calories just don’t count on the open road. But inhaling a bunch of junk that you purchased at your local gas station or fast food joint can leave you feeling so blah once you arrive at your destination. To adequately prepare you for your next summer road trip, we’ve compiled a list of better-for-you snacks that will satisfy you and properly fuel you for the road ahead.

 

CORE Hydration

To help stave off that inevitable headache that comes along with staring at the open road for too many hours, hydration is key. Available at most gas stations and convenience stores, CORE Hydration offers perfectly ph-balanced water that will keep you hydrated until you reach your final destination.

 

 

 

 

 Simply 7 Snacks

It’s not a road trip without some salty chips to crunch on, but you may be hesitant to chow down on a bag of potato snacks with a plethora of preservatives and trans fat. Simply 7 offers better-for-you (but equally addicting) chips and snacks that follow 7 standards: Non-GMO, no preservatives, 0g trans fat, no artificial colors or flavors, gluten-free, simple ingredients and delicious flavors like Salt & Vinegar Quinoa Chips, Jalapeno Lentil Chips or Mesquite BBQ Quinoa Curls.

 

 

 EPIC Snack Strips

There’s something about a road trip that just makes jerky taste infinitely better. EPIC Provisions, best known for its EPIC Bar (the original meat, fruit, and nut bar), offers four Snack Strips to address your craving for this beloved meat snack. EPIC’s snack sticks are created using high-quality animal protein, clean seasonings, and simple dehydration. The end product is a tender and flavorful snack that you can enjoy in flavors like Wagyu Beef, Salmon Fillet, Turkey and Venison Steak

 

 

 GoMacro

If you don’t want to waste time (or calories) hitting drive-thru after drive-thru, grab some GoMacro bars to have on hand. GoMacro is a family-owned, vegan nutrition bar company whose mission is to make wholesome, healthy snacks that are certified organic, Kosher, vegan, Non-GMO, C.L.E.A.N and R.A.W. Keep an eye out for the three newest flavors: Blueberry + Cashew Butter, Dark Chocolate + Almond and Mocha Chocolate Chip.

 

 

 TCHO

No road trip list is complete without something sweet. Known for great flavor and high-quality chocolate, TCHO offers creative flavors that every road tripper can get behind including Strawberry Cream + Nib, Banana Nut, Cinnamon Spice, Mint Chip Gelato and Coconut Crisp. Want to feel even less guilty about this sweet treat? TCHO always treats growers fairly and sources ethically (because it’s the right thing to do).
