23. Pork Rinds
Your go-to snack if you want to gross everyone else in the car out. We’ll look the other way while you wipe your greasy hands all over the upholstery in the back seat.
22. Corn Nuts
Always a great idea until you get one stuck in one of your back teeth and get to know what true suffering is.
21. The Cheeseburger/Hot Dog Hybrid
It’ll fill you up, and let you down. If it’s been sitting under a heat lamp for a few hours, trust us, you’re gonna regret this.
20. Apple Slices
Might seem like a good idea, but two hours into the trip these things will have turned as brown as the pits of your favorite gym shirt, yuck.
19. Sunflower Seeds
These little treats are totally awesome, especially if you’re interested in redecorating the floor of your car with the empty shells.
18. Convenience Store Nachos
Do you love plastic cheese and the lingering sadness of indigestion? These were made for you, in that case.
17. Trail Mix
I have one question for you, trail mix: WHO INVITED THE RAISINS? Buh-bye.
16. Kettle Chips
Chips of all kinds are a road trip staple, really, but kettle chips are the only chip that will provide you with the illusion of refinement you truly seek while snacking in a moving vehicle.
Sure, they smell great when you’re in the store, but not only will the inside definitely burn the living hell out of your mouth, but you wont be able to shake that greasy feeling from your hands for hours. Evil.
14. Gummy Worms
Remember that kid in kindergarten who would eat dirt? That’s basically you, but with a sugar high.
13. Sour Gummy Worms
See above, but now you have a sugar high AND you’re making a weird sour face. Proceed with caution.
12. Icing Cookies
Cookies are great, especially of someone else makes them and you’re a fan of finding crumbs in your shirt when you change out of your clothes later in the day.
11. Pretzel Sticks
Yes, they will make you thirsty.
10. Chocolate Covered Pretzels
Pretzels are great and chocolate is great, so chocolate covered pretzels are great, as long as you eat them quickly so you don’t get melted chocolate all over your entire existence.
Though you’re never too old to build your own cheese/ham/cracker tower, beware of warm lunchables, nothing will ruin your day more than sweaty cheese and glistening lunch meats.
A delicious corn chips packed with 300% mouth-cutting power than its 2-D brethren.
7. Animal Crackers
These little suckers may fill you with the warm fuzzy feeling of childhood nostalgia but don’t be fooled, they will also make you thirstier than all of the pretzels in the world.
6. Chocolate Covered Espresso Beans
Nothing like getting hyped up and listening to some T. Swift on the open road. These little guys with carry you miles further than gross gas station coffee.
5. Red Licorice Ropes
Listen. Red Vines, Twizzlers, whatever. This is a perfect sweet snack because a) no crumbs and b) no melting. Have a ball.
4. Hot Fries
Crunch, spice, and a dash of mystery - hot fries basically have it all when it comes to being a snack. But go easy on these or they will come back to haunt you, if you know what we mean.
Yes, they still exist and yes, you need them now (and yes, you’ll be hungry 15 minutes later.)
Because no road trip is complete without a couple brain freezes and a tongue dyed bright red.
