5 Snacks for Your Next Road Trip!

Staycations and close-to-home vacations are the new norm, and how a great number of us have spent our summer. With travel and flight restrictions in place, we have witnessed months of limited travel and short, more local vacations. In fact it has been recently reported that over 70% of Americans did not take a summer vacation this year, and of those that did, over 70% opted to travel by car instead of plane. With so many of us taking to the roads instead of the skies this year, let’s have a look at just some of the delicious road-trip worthy snacks available thru Green Bean Delivery.

Stonyfield Organic -Yo Kids Squeezers

Mess free, delicious and nutritious? Yes please! The whole family will be able to enjoy these grab and go snacks while on the road. Filled with Stonyfield’s scrumptious organic strawberry yogurt, these squeezable tubes are easy to pass to kids in the back seat and keep sticky foodie fingers at bay. Coming in packs of 8, and compact enough to fit in smaller coolers, Yo Kids Squeezers are a super road trip snack to please all the family. Not able to finish them all on the way down? Keep them chilled in your mini fridge to enjoy on the way home!

Annie’s Homegrown Organic Cheddar Cheesy Smiles

It’s often hard to find a snack that everyone can enjoy. Mom likes sour candy, Dad likes chips, kids love all this chocolate. But a jumbo pack of Annie’s Homegrown Cheese Smiles is bound to satisfy tummies, big and small. Baked (not fried) to perfection, these puffs are packed with whole grain goodness and tons of flavor, and yes, put a big smile on anyone’s face.

Nature’s Bakery – Fig Bars (assorted)

Got an early start? Hitting the road before dawn? Up with the birds to beat the traffic? Sometimes getting breakfast on the go can be messy and time consuming. When you’ve got a long drive ahead, who wants to add minutes to the journey by queuing for breakfast? So pick up a pack or two of Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars, or pick up a couple of the individual bars (a steal at $0.99). A super sweet way to start your day. Oh, and did we mention – Non-GMO, certified vegan, and kosher.

Vermont Smoke & Cure Realsticks

The team at Vermont Smoke & Cure “uses tried-and-true methods and pure ingredients to give their meats exceptionally good flavor.” And they’re absolutely right! The quality of their Realstick range is incredible, from the sticky sweetness of BBQ to the sting and heat of the Chiptole, these meat sticks aren’t messing around when it comes to flavor. With between 6-10g of protein per stick, these are the perfect snacks to tide you over until the next pitstop, or to get you through those final few miles before you settle down for the night. Available in Chipotle (beef and pork), BBQ (beef), and Pepperoni (turkey).

Farm to Kitchen Foods

Die hard Green Bean fans will be all too familiar with the Farm to Kitchen Food Brand – owned and operated by GB themselves, their aim has always been to curate products that have been “carefully curated to meet our members’ high standards in natural and organic foods.” Handful of must-have ingredients and pantry staples are available in the F2K range, but the hidden gems are the candies and snacks! Large grab packs of yogurt covered pretzels, carob clusters, and peanut butter cups are available alongside a variety of Energy Chunks. Personal faves? Pistachio Honey and Mixed Berry blast. These bite size chunks give you a much needed energy boost thanks to carefully curated ingredient lists, featuring superfoods such as goji berries, cacao, apricots and sunflower seeds.
