Travel meals

When you're on a long car trip, what do you like to take for snacks and in-car meals?

We take sub sandwiches for the meals and we usually have a variety of snacks. Some are things we don't normally have at home so they are special for the trip.

Peanut M&M's, Oreos, pretzel nuggets, cheese cubes, grapes, Pringles.

Mods- if this would be better in another forum, please move it.

We don't usually eat meals in the car, we stop somewhere.

For snacks I like beef jerky or Utz thin pretzels.

I like air-popped popcorn with curry powder on it; carrot and celery sticks. Cheese and apples. I like to keep the "petal to the metal" and only stop when I must stop.

ever since i was young, i loved to see (and sample, like a cafone) the road snacks that travelling companions have brought along, especially long trips to vermont, pennsylvania, and maryland.

my family almost can't make a long car trip without pretzel rods or nuggets, some kind of cheese (string mozzarella, sharp cheddar, smoked gouda, etc.), trail mix or just gorp, beef jerky, and dried fruit such as mango or apricots

some of the best others offered were: cubes of lebanon balogna and swiss cheese, hot cappicola bread, prosciutto wrapped melon, apple slices and cheddar, dried garlic crostinis, sesame breadsticks and hummus, and scones with honey.

Pretzels and trail mix are also things I often take along on the road trip to MN.

We usually have pizza the night before a roadtrip since we are busy prepping. We bring the leftovers. We also do Salumi,cheese,nuts,dried fruits and jerky. Blueberry poppers,dried coconut,individual almond butter foil packs from Justin's and some crackers.

The same things are used when we go hiking.

We don't bring snacks on trips. We also rarely snack at home. We'll stop for lunch and try to find something light. As we get older, a long car ride with a lot of food sitting in our stomachs, is very uncomfortable. Also goes directly to the hips.
