5 Fun And Easy Road Trip Snack Recipes #ad #TwizzlersSummer

It’s summer and you know what that means: travel. So far, Amber has gone to the beach and I have been to New York City. Poor Jay isn’t getting left out, though. He and I are headed to Panama City Beach, Florida in September. We also have a few more trips planned for the rest of the year including the SoFabU On The Road blogger conference in Atlanta, a hotel review on an island in Georgia and a cruise at the end of the year. So, yeah, we love to travel and do it often. Thus, for our fellow travel lovers, we have put together some easy road trip snack recipes that we think you will enjoy.

Easy Road Trip Food Ideas

Cheese & Crackers – We like to buy the pre-cut cheese slices at the store and the packs of crackers that look like little toast that you can find in the deli section. Why? Because it looks all fancy and stuff. There is no need for your road trip to be “cheap” if you don’t want it to be. 🙂

Fruit Balls – Use a melon baller and shape your favorite fruit into balls. Put the fruit into a cup with a lid and put it in a cooler. Then you have something that is cute, easy to handle and a refreshing treat in the heat of the summer.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Twizzlers Twists Twizzlers Twists don’t melt! So when you are in a hot car {or at a hot beach} Twizzlers Twists make a great snack choice. Grab some strawberry Twizzlers Twists and dip them in peanut butter for a quick PB&J that kids {and kids at heart} are sure to love.

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Twizzlers Twists – For the folks of more discriminating tastes, let us offer Chocolate Covered Strawberry Twizzlers Twists . Again, just dip your strawberry Twizzlers Twists into your favorite chocolate sauce or dip and you have a tasty and fun snack that’s easy to manage on a road trip.

Banana Split Twizzlers Twists – If you are feeling really adventurous, peel a banana and cut it into small chunks. Stick the Bite Size Cherry Twizzlers Twists in the middle of the chunks and cover in your favorite chocolate sauce. Enjoy.


Chocolate Covered Strawberry Milk – Pick up a chocolate milk at a convenient station and use a strawberry Twizzlers Twists for a straw. If you leave it in there a few minutes it gets more strawberry flavored. This one is just too fun.

*You can use toothpicks for the Twizzlers Twists treats if you would like to keep a little neater, just be careful of the sharp points.

We found a huge selection of Twizzlers on a display right behind the cash registers at Walmart.

Why We Love These Road Trip Snack Ideas

We like to stop at rest areas as we enter states so that we can get pictures of the state signs when possible. So, a cooler packed with goodies is perfect for snacking. A lot of state rest areas have picnic tables or nice seating areas inside, too, if you don’t want to sit in your car. Also, these types of snacks are quick and don’t cut into much of your time if you are watching the clock.

  1. These all sound like amazing snacks to have at home, too!! Hard to beat mixing up Twizzlers with fun other items! ~ Client

  2. The Strawberry Chocolate Milk is such a fun idea! My daughter would love it!

    Also, I am so envious about your upcoming trip to that island off the Georgia coast. I hope you’ll blog about it!

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      I definitely will be blogging about it. I am going end of October so be sure to keep an eye out. 🙂

  3. The post is really interesting! I love your blog:)

  4. Blueberries and grapes are our favorite snacks on roadtrips! We are never fan of twizzlers though.

  5. Fruit is always great on a road trip. And, of course, a little candy. Especially Twizzlers.

  6. Any time I want to make my husband happy, all I have to do is buy him some Twizzlers. We ALWAYS have a big bag in the car when we hit the road!

  7. Mmm now I really want to buy some Twizzlers. I always forget how much I like them till I start eating one and then I can’t stop!

  8. I love Twizzlers and I am addicted to the Reeses dip. I have not thought to put them together. YUMMY!

  9. The kids love Twizzlers. I’ve never thought to use them as a dip. I’m going to try some of your snack ideas. My husband and I love to travel, too.

  10. These are great snack ideas! I’ve never dipped my Twizzlers in anything but I’m going to have to give it a try!

  11. I think to this day Strawberry Twizzlers are still my favorite fruit candy. I like these Twizzlers snack ideas!

  12. Oh my! Chocolate covered twizzlers? That sounds amazing. The fruit balls are also a great, cheap treat for all ages.

  13. Twizzlers in chocolate or peanut butter? Hmm… I don’t know if we will try that, but we love the strawberry Twizzlers, and are going on a 10 hour car trip with a 5 and 6 year old. :-O We might need to try this!

  14. It’s a great idea to stock up on snacks for a long road trip! You never know when you might get hungry a hundred miles away from the closest place to eat!

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      That is an excellent point. When we went to Cincinnati earlier this year, we had to drive through West Va. I tell you what, that state seems to go on forever and ever with no rest areas or exits, lol.

  15. Twizzlers and Reese’s peanut butter dip – yummy combo! I love peanut butter since I was a kid and this would make it even more enjoyable. Great snack suggestions to take on a road trip! Thanks for sharing.

  16. I do love Twizzlers but I can’t say I would dip them into peanut butter. I usually bring graham crackers for our peanut butter or Nutella.

  17. What a fun and interesting idea! My kids love Twizzlers, but we haven’t tried them with any spreads yet. I’ll have to try it out and see what my kids think of it.

  18. CourtneyLynne says

    What a great list of ideas!!! I just love twizzlers. Might have to add some onto
    This weeks grocery list!

  19. We love to stop at rest stops too. We usually pack snacks and waters as well. It makes for less stops on the road.

  20. Lisa Bristol says

    These are great snack ideas. I will have to try the Peanut Butter & Jelly Twizzlers Twists. I like making trail mix for trips.

  21. Ann Bacciaglia says

    I have never thought to try Peanut Butter & Jelly Twizzlers Twists. I bet my kids would love them. Cheese and crackers is one of my favorite snacks.

  22. I never really got into candy that much, but I have always had a soft spot for Twizzlers for some reason. I haven’t paired Twizzlers with anything else yet. Wonderful ideas, though!

  23. Wow I would of never thought to put Twizzlers and peanut butter together! Kids dont care a snack is a snack and the crazier the combo the better lol!

  24. Twizzlers are my kids’ favorite. Pairing it with spreads sounds like an awesome idea. They will love this, for sure.
