One of my favorite parts of Summer are the trips, more specifically road trips! I’ve been taking road trips with my family since a little girl and now that we have our own family, nothing has changed!
One of my most memorable road trips when I was little was driving from Memphis to Las Vegas. Yes, a THREE day road trip… during an ice storm! I remember ‘ice skating’ in a parking lot in Oklahoma and soaking in the snowy Grand Canyon. It’s funny, I actually remember more about my road trip than I do our actual time in Las Vegas.
Life’s about the journey, right?! One thing is for sure, each road trip starts the same way.. with snacks and fuel!
My first mission for road trips is loading up on snacks, healthy-ish snacks that is! I am a serial snacker in the car but don’t want to feel gross when we get to our destination. I love running in Kroger to grab snacks. They have a great selection of healthy treats + all my purchases help me earn more fuel points!
A few of my favorite things to grab are
- Pop Chips, especially a spicy flavor!
- Jack Links Jerky
- Planter’s Healthy Nut Mix
- Precut Fruit
- Mini Reese’s for my chocolate fix 😉
- Diet Peach Snapple
- Lots of Bottled Water
After we’re stocked up, it’s time to fuel up!
We’ve been fueling up at Kroger for as long as I can remember. When I was young, my mom would almost run out of gas before stopping at a different gas station! Their fuel rewards are insanely great. This Summer they’ve somehow made their fuel program even more amazing!
