Ultimate guide to road trip snack essentials

You’ve got your road trip route all planned out, temporary car insurance all sorted, your bags are packed, but let’s not forget the most important thing, snacks! You’re bound to get a bit peckish on your long journey and there’s nothing that can ruin the mood more than being without any snacks. Here’s our ultimate guide on some road trip worthy snacks to keep you well fuelled on your journey:

Healthy snacks

Being on the road doesn’t have to mean that you need to compromise on a healthy diet. Fresh fruit can be kept cool with ice packs and cool bags and when you run out, you can top up again with a trip to the shops along your road trip. There are also lots of other healthy snacks that can be kept at room, or in this case car temperature, including dried fruits, nuts, popcorn or dark chocolate.

Savoury snacks

Before you set off you might think that an abundance of sweet, sugary snacks are going to be the best thing about being on the road, but you’re bound to fancy something more filling at some point, so go prepared to avoid having to succumb to a basic petrol station sandwich! Some ideas could include, breadsticks and dips, cheese and crackers, crisps, sausage rolls, a pasta salad or even different flavoured rice cakes.

Sweet snacks

You’re hours into your road trip and have been good so far and eaten healthy snacks, so now is the time to break out the sweet treats! Chocolate and share bags of sweets are firm road trip favourites that can be shared out and enjoyed, and how about making some homemade traybakes or cookies before your trip?

Where does Jaunt come in?

Fancy going on an epic road trip but don’t have a car? No problem, with Jaunt, you can borrow a friend or family member’s car for your next adventure. This way, you can explore to your hearts content without the hassle of public transport.
