Today my boyfriend and I are hitting the road to spend New Years Eve in Vermont. I sent him the official ski trip packing list a few days ago, and then I started thinking about some of my favorite snacks for a road trip. One of the great pleasures in road tripping is the food. When I visit my friends on the Jersey Shore each summer, I eagerly anticipate a stop on the Jersey Turnpike for some T.C.B.Y. nearly as much as I do the amazing seafood dinners awaiting me in Manasquan. However, the majority of the time you’re better off bringing your own food than relying on drive-throughs, and that’s where the perfect road snack comes in to play. Rather than pack a “balanced meal,” road tripping is a great time to geek out on your favorite snacks, and when I hear “snack,” I automatically think cheese, apples and crackers. Luckily for me, those three components travel pretty well on a long car ride. A few hours outside the fridge, and the cheddar cheese has that perfect sort-of-soft texture that pairs really well with a crunchy apple or cracker. What’s your favorite snack for a road trip?
