Half the fun of a summer road trip comes with just being on the road—rolling through scenic landscapes, blasting a feel-good album, counting the miles to go. But even the best drive will take a turn for the worse when one of two necessities runs low: fuel or food.
GPSing the nearest gas station solves one of those problems. For foodies, though, standard convenience store fare just doesn’t hit the spot.
Here’s a solution: Plan ahead and stock up on provisions you’ll actually want to fuel up on. And most importantly, reach for snacks from local brands that bring a punch of flavor—and are totally packable.
