It’s that time of year. Time when we load the family up in the SUV or Minivan, or in our case, our little black Mazda 3, and head out to our vacation destination, whether it be for a week or two, or just a weekend.
And everybody knows you’re inevitably going to hear at least three different things somewhere along the way (not usually very far down the road):
#1 – How much longer until we get there?
#2 – I need to use the bathroom.
# 3- I’m hungry or I’m thirsty.
So, for #3, if you’re really organized and thrifty, you’ve brought snacks along as well as drinks in the cooler. And in that case, you should pat yourself on the back! If not, (or if you don’t have room in the trunk because of everything else you stuffed in there), you will be looking forward to those stops to get gas or use the restroom because you know that you can probably talk dad into a snack and a drink.
That brings me to the subject of this post. When you stop at the gas station to grab a snack and drink, what do you reach for?
For me, without a doubt, my drink is most definitely a cool bottle of Diet Mountain Dew.
When it comes to the snack, my first choice (and very favorite) is probably a little stranger than most. At least, I haven’t met that many folks that are crazy about these things (except my daddy)………..
Love those things!
My next choice is usually these….another odd choice I suppose……Boston Baked Beans.
And if I’m in the mood for a candy bar instead, it’s either:
Or an Almond Joy.
Oh and when they’re in season, I can eat WAY too many of these little sugary things:
Are you hungry yet?
What about you? What’s your favorite snack for the road?
