Travel Snacks

With weeks of back-to-back travel ahead of me, I have made sure that I am well-stocked with snacks. These are my favorite reliable snacks to bridge the gap between the time that you had dinner and the time that your plane lands, or the snack that lets your skip a fast-food joint on the road, saving you time/money/nutrition. What is your number one go to snack while traveling? (I knew a family who always bought gas station corn nuts while on the road. Admittedly, I will usually stop just for an Arizona tea.)

In-shell Pistachios, if you are not driving. (Out-of-shell if you are!)

Mix almonds and craisins for THE BEST salty/sweet flavor combination

My favorite pre-made trail mix is Target’s Sweet Cajun

I like to hide emergency Clif bars in my purse or backpack or that middle console in the car so that they are there if I really need them. I especially love these caffeinated mint-chocolate bars.
