When you are going on a road trip, perhaps the most important aspect of any successful road trip is the snacks. Sure, you need a car that seats all your companions with room for your belongings, a full tank of gas, and some great tunes. But, the right snacks can take a road trip from great to legendary. In today’s blog here at Fuelco, we talk about five great junk-food snacks to make your road trip great. Stay tuned for blog part two where we talk about healthy snack alternatives!
Before you head out, hit up the gas pump here at Fuelco in White Plains. We have amazing snack options — both healthy and unhealthy — America’s cleanest gasoline, and more!
Delicious, Less Nutritious Snacks
While these snacks may not be the most healthy snacks money can buy, they are great for overall morale and help to feed your soul. For a truly memorable road trip, these snacks are a must. Plus, you can always work it off when you get out of the car to run around, sight see, or enjoy the local entertainment!
Bears, worms, and sharks — oh my! Gummies come in hundreds of different shapes, sizes, and flavors. They are a great-tasting, gelatinous treat that everyone loves. The only flaw they have is being so delicious that your road trip companions will likely try to snag some for themselves!
With candy, there are hundreds of options to choose from. Whether you are a peanut butter, coconut, dark chocolate, or caramel kind of person, there is a candy out there for you. Unless you have a hatred for sugar, it’s impossible not to find something you love. Some of our personal favorites here at Fuelco in White plains are:
Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups
There are too many candies out there in the world to tell you all of our favorites, but the above list can serve as a springboard to help you decide what treats you are going to bring with you on your road trip.
Chips are a versatile snack that are great in practically every situation. Relaxing after a long day on the couch? Have your favorite potato chips. Looking for a great side for the burger you just whipped up? Kettle cooked chips or Doritos will do the trick. Embarking on a road trip endeavor with two close friends? Grab a bag of Cheetos (and napkins) while at the gas pump and be on your merry way. While Cheetos may not be a chip strictly speaking, for the purpose of this blog, Cheetos are going in the chip category along with crackers like Cheez-Its.
Snack mixes can actually fit in either the healthy snack or unhealthy snack category. It all depends on the contents of your snack mix. The reason we decided to plop it in the unhealthy section is because most mixes you buy have quite a bit of salt and throw in tasty candies to give you a salty and sweet flavor. We aren’t complaining by any means — this is a delicious tactic. Most mixes have pretzels, crackers of some sort, almonds, peanuts, cashews, dried fruit, and more! When you are going on a road trip, you can’t go wrong with snack mix. It is arguably the longest lasting snack because of the quantities you can buy it in.
Cookies are arguably one of the best sweet treats ever invented. They are simple, classic, and timeless. You can whip up a batch of chocolate chip cookies before you set off for your road trip if you are dedicated, or you can pick some up here at Fuelco in White Plains. We’ve got cookies and other dessert snacks like Twinkies, Ho-Hos, and more!
