Travel Trip Snacks
The summer season means traveling to fun destinations. Whether you are taking a camping trip, a hiking trip, or a lakeside getaway, you may be hopping in a car, plane, or train to get to all of your summertime destinations. Summer is usually packed with beachside vacas, family reunions, and road trips with friends, so while you are packing, do not forget the most important thing, travel snacks. Here are some of the best travel snacks for your next trip.
#1 Energy Balls, Bites, or Bars
Recharge your batteries after a long drive or flight with a batch of handcrafted energy balls like these Chocolate Peanut Butter Protein Energy Balls.

#2 GranolaThe best granola to travel with is It's Nola granola snack bites because they chewy, compact, and mess free. Additionally, they're healthy and full of flavor. They are packed in resealable bags that keep them fresh and allow you to eat them where ever and whenever you want, making them the best travel snacks. Did we mention delicious? Choose from fun flavors like Dark Decadent Chewy Chocolate, Luscious Cranberry Coconut, Sassy Mango Salsa, and Scrumptious Strawberry and Banana.
Cannot decide? Try one of our mini-pack bundles where you can get four flavors all in one package. You can even pair your favorite flavors of granola with your best beverage of choice to make a complete snack on the go. Photo Credit: Audrey Tapper
#3 Homemade Trail Mix
Store-bought trail mix may not always have your favorite combinations of flavors and foods, which is why you should create your own custom travel trail mix for your summer travels. Need some ideas? Check it out:
If you prefer savory and spicy, try a combination of chili, maple, and cheddar cracker trail mix. Grab a box of your favorite cheddar cheese-flavored crackers and your favorite nuts or seeds then drizzle them with maple syrup and a sprinkle of chili powder for the ultimate savory and spicy snack mix.
Prefer something a little more salty and sweet? Grab some classic trail mix staples like gluten-free pretzels, peanuts, and naturally dyed chocolate candies. Be sure to make enough to share with your entire travel crew because you will definitely want a handful or two of this travel snack. Photo credit: superjoseph
#4 Plant-Based Cheese and Crackers
If you practice a dairy-free lifestyle, grab a few slices of your favorite plant-based cheese paired with a box of classic crackers or grain-free crackers and you have a complete snack. You can even pack mini travel-size packets of black bean dip, crackers, guacamole, hummus, and olives to put together your very own plant-based charcuterie board. Who says you cannot travel in style?

#5 Snack Packs
Clean out the fridge or hit up the community farmers market and grab all of the vegetables you can. Think of things like baby carrots, bell peppers, and celery sticks. Then grab a box of crackers and a single-serving packer of your favorite nut or seed butter. Think of things like almond butter, peanut butter, or even sesame seed butter (tahini) and you have a more mindful travel snack that is the complete satisfying snack pack. You can even place all of the ingredients in travel-size mason jars, perfect for a car cooler. Photo credit: Olga Kurbatova
