Snacks are one of the most exciting parts of a road trip. No matter whether you’re an adult or a kid – no road trip is complete without great snacks! Sometimes, it can be dangerous to eat certain snacks while you’re driving; however, there are some that don’t require you to take your eyes off the road before you. Here’s a list of road trip snacks you can eat safely while you’re on the road!

1. Beef Jerky

Beef jerky is perhaps one of the most classic and well-loved road trip snacks. Regardless of if you’re more of a Jack Links fan or a Slim Jim fan, beef jerky is a consistent winner. Plus, with little to no crumbs or anything to clean up, you can eat them in the car without any qualms!

2. Cheez-its

Cheez-its are one of the most popular snacks of all. They come in so many different types – Parmesan, Grooves, Hot & Spicy, Whole Grain…the list goes on forever. Additionally, they’re bite-sized, so they’re very easy to grab without taking your eyes off the road. 

3. Pretzels

There’s a reason pretzels are one of America’s best-loved snacks because they’re so versatile. Pretzels are a great option to take on the road! One of our favorite varieties is peanut butter filled pretzel nuggets; the crunch and saltiness can help keep you awake, and the peanut butter is a sweet surprise! 

4. Trail Mix

Trail mix is one of the most versatile snacks because there’s no limit to what you can put in it! Granola, chocolate, raisins, m&ms, dried fruit, and so many other delicious things can be in a trail mix. Therefore, this is a snack that anyone can enjoy! Besides, since the pieces are so small, it’s easy to reach into the bag and grab a handful without taking your attention off the road.

5. Red Vines

Who doesn’t love a good piece of licorice? Red Vines are a great snack for the road – they’re chewy, they’re sweet, and they’re downright delicious. They tend to get a bit sticky if you hold them for a while, so make sure to keep some Clorox wipes nearby to wipe your hands. Alternatively, Twizzlers also make red licorice bites! Either way, this chewy snack can keep you awake and keep you busy while you’re on the road.

No matter what you’re snacking on, make sure your main focus is the road. Let snacking help you stay awake, not distract you. Here at Wave Express, our priority is making sure our drivers are safe. We wish you safe travels, and happy snacking!
