The Travel Snack - AF

According to An Island Life: 

"In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."

I’ve mentioned in previous posts that my family and I took a drive up to Northern California to visit with family, attend one of my baby showers and to be in a place so completely opposite of the desert.

Now, I don’t know about you all, but from observing my mom over the years, I have learned that over preparing is the way to go when traveling. And when I say over preparing, I mean in the Snack Department. Our car was packed to the gills with snack items, you’d have thought we were a mobile grocery store!

In any case, my number one snack item for road trips (besides beef jerkey) is the humble sunflower seed. Without sunflower seeds, my travels would be incomplete! Oh, and they must be shelled, otherwise, what’s the point? The salt on the shell is what makes the experience of cracking and eating these seeds a meaningful one! If one finishes a bag of seeds and one's lips aren’t white and puckered, then one has not lived!

Um, as you can see, I'm passionate about this snack...

My question today:

What are you favorite snacks on the road?

If you’d like to participate in Aloha Friday, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at today's installation of Aloha Friday at An Island Life. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

Northern California? You live here? I am in Silicon Valley. If your that me! In regards to my snacks on the road, I would have to pick Beef jerky. I just love having something small like that to chew on. My boyfriend and I find packing snacks prevents us from constant stops at the fast food restaurants.

Well, hello there! said...

Sonia! Thank you so much for stopping by! I actually grew up in Northern California, but Hubs and I moved to Las Vegas for work. :-) I agree about the snacks keeping you from fast food - by the time we got finished with all the snacking, there was no room for any of the really bad stuff! LOL! Hope you're having a great Friday!

I love sunflower seeds but the it gets messy when I try to drive. I do however love peanuts and gummy bears when I'm traveling. Why this combo? I don't know. Maybe the sweet and salty combination! Hi! I am your newest follower from MBC. Would love a visit and a follow back: Thanks!

For me it has to be something salty so maybe a snack cracker of some kind.

I'm terrible on the road. Something sweet (like peanut butter nutty buddy bars) and something salty like Munchos.
