One of the best parts of a road trip is that you get to snack while you drive. Nothing beats being out on the open road with the radio blasting and the crunch of junk food in your mouth. If you want to make the most of your gas station runs, then you have to know which snacks are the most satisfying and will enhance your driving experience the most. So, here are some suggestions.

The Chex Mixes

Chex has a lot to choose from, both sweet and salty. Classic Chex Mix is a great option, as it has lots of different types of snacks for maximum variety and crunch type in one bag. If you ever ate puppy chow as a child, then you’ll enjoy Chex’s Muddy Buddies–Chex cereal coated in peanut butter, chocolate, and powdered sugar.

Snack Cakes

There is something intensely satisfying about biting into a soft, artificially-flavored cake. Enrobed in chocolate or filled with icing, if this is your craving then gas stations have a plethora of options. They also come in single-serving packets, so if you have a tendency to go overboard on snacks then this is a great way to keep them rationed.

Mixed Nuts

For a healthier and more substantial option, roasted and salted nuts are always a good choice. Nuts are full of protein and healthy fats, so they’ll keep you feeling full when you can’t stop for long stretches. Just be sure to have some water on hand to counteract the salt!
