What snacks do you bring along on Road Trips?

Got any ideas for shelf stable or portable cooler type snacks to pack for Road Trips?

If I have a cooler, we do salami or pepperoni slices, cheese, hard boiled eggs, olives, and pickles.

Without refrigeration, we take nuts, beef jerky, Quest protein bars, peanut butter, parmesan crisps.

in the car keep a can of peanuts and a sack of m&m's. when we go to Branson we take a can of chips, usually bake some cookies up before we go, but really don't take that much, just more to unpack and pack back up.

Same here Ms_Terese. Also dried fruit (or trail mix) if we can't pack fresh. We try to avoid the lure of junk when we travel. Also have to have the coffee and waters. A minty gum or hard candy might be useful to the driver to keep them awake, or to aid in car-sickness in some.

"On the road" just whatever I am in the mood for I get at a GS/CS when I make a fuel or potty stop.
When "there", wherever there might be I just pick up something locally.
One thing I do get often in Branson is boiled peanuts from Whiskers Country Corner.
That's for my road trips. If the wife is along she wants to pack three weeks of groceries for a three day trip!
Reminds me of once seeing a long list, at least three pages a young lady was working on. She said it was for an upcoming float trip. I wrote down a guy's list for the same trip, and showed it to her.
1. Cooler
2. Ice
3. Beer
DONE!!!

I always have chips, nuts, crackers or trail mix. We usually make a stop at Osceola Cheese when we are heading south or home so I pick up meat sticks and smoked string cheese. M&M's are always a staple as well.

Nuts, cheese sticks/wedges, beef jerky, BACON jerky, tuna salad pouches, shelf stable BACON strips
AND, if I have a cooler, I can add boiled eggs, lunch meat/cheese, and BACON.

Since I am the driver as well as the eater, I only take items that I can sit in the passenger seat and get to easily without taking my eyes off the road. More often than not it is a can of cashews, maybe some Russell Stover chocolates and a couple of Diet Cokes. (No comments about how bad Coke is for you, please)

Since I leave for Branson at 4 am each trip, most of the time I will not eat anything in the car and wait until I get to Branson Center Stage for some of their delicious Pecan Praline French Toast. It is worth waiting for.

Roadtrip snack idea

Saw this after the original thread on this topic was closed. Pretty cool idea. The plastic divided boxes can be found in all sorts of sizes in the fishing tackle aisle in Wally World, BPS, etc.

I think it's important to get enough salt now we are in the middle of Summer. I like raw cashews with added sea salt....and its also important to stay hydrated, even if that means more frequent stops along the journey.

Kids especially would like that idea!
Individual tackle boxes or craft boxes, like the ones that hold beads, would work well.

Such good advice Suse.

Summer creeps upon us without much warning and we sometimes forget about striving to stay hydrated as that temperature climbs. I really have to force myself to drink the water that I know I need and eating salty items helps.

Yes, proper hydration is very important in the Summer. I force myself to drink a six pack or so. Especially during ball games!

My DH needs more substantial food, so I oven fry chicken breasts, debone them and put in a baggy so he can have when he wants. Packed on ice in small cooler.
