We're headed on an 8 day road trip this October, from NJ to FL with stops

along
the way. I'm looking for some snack ideas, since I don't have a fridge in

the
car (!), cheese and anything perishable is a no-no. I'm thinking nuts,

maybe
some peanut butter, and my usual frankensnack per day, any other

suggestions?




you can pick up pork rinds along the way at convenience stores and gas
station quickie-marts.

i would bring a cooler - is that possible? then you could bring cheese
sticks, and a bunch of other things. I would buy things as you go- you
aren't locked into the car! you should bring some non-perishables then stop
along the way.

i like to make my own beef jerky - you can bring jerky if you make/buy it

Stop at places to get real food!

Of course I intend to stop to eat!!! I'm planning on pitstops at 3 - 4 hours,
that's why I asked about snacks.

That's probably the best idea, with all my trip planning, it never occured to
me that I didn't have to bring it all with me duh!
My concern is that I'll have no place to refreeze the ice packs for the cooler
and I'm not too crazy about having real ice in the car. Hmmm...maybe ice in zip
lock bags could work - does anyone have any experience with that? I want to
avoid leaks in my brandy-new car!

if you don't want to get your new car all dirty inside, don't snack, or if
you must, snack at a pit stop.

If you're planning on pit stops and eating every 3-4 hours, then you
won't need car snacks.

Do you eat more than every 3 hours when you're not in the car?
