Our family is about to head out on, what we hope will be an epic road trip, to Winnipeg. We are all so excited to see family, play with cousins, see new sights and make memories!

But, I’m not going to lie and say that I’m not anxious at all. Haha no. This will be our very first major trip since our youngest daughter was born. That was more than three years ago! She was a terrible sleeper for the first 3 years of her life so the thought of sleeping anywhere but home would practically make me sweat.

But here we are, just days away from our road trip and I have been in planner mode all week trying to calm my nerves. I have multiple lists going on for car activities, packing essentials and, my favourite, snacks. No road trip is complete without snacks!

Thanks to FreshCo, our snacking has been taken care of. I popped in the other day and grabbed our must-haves as well as some fun new things to try. Because the in-season produce selection at FreshCo is amazing, we will have a great selection of fresh fruit added to our dry goods. Not only is the quality of products noteworthy, the prices are the best in town – you can’t beat that!

And guess what? There are two new FreshCo stores in Winnipeg that opened this spring! I’ll be making a pit stop to restock on food for the car ride back.

Since I always like to see what other families bring along on road trips, I thought you would like that as well. So today I’m excited to share a list of our snacks! I also have a fun way that I have packed some snacks for the girls that I think you might enjoy or find helpful too.

First of all, here’s a list of the fresh produce we will bring along this time:

  • Watermelon (cut up into sticks)
  • Grapes
  • Blueberries
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Carrot sticks
  • Apples

This will all be kept in a cooler that we will bring out when we make stops to stretch and get gas.

Now for the fun surprise for the girls. I picked up a couple of divided organizers from the dollar store that I filled with a variety of healthy and not so healthy snacks (but always a crowd favourite!) from FreshCo. I think they are going to love the smorgasbord of choices. The organizers aren’t that big so when they finish the tray, I’ll refill them during one of our stops.

Here is a list of what’s in the divided organizers:

  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Chocolate Coconut Chips
  • Dried pineapple
  • Beef jerky
  • Dried mango
  • a Sucker
  • Pretzels
  • Fruit snacks
  • Goldfish crackers

Here is a complete list of our road trip snacks (Find a printable version here):

  • Watermelon
  • Blueberries
  • Grapes
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Carrot sticks
  • Apples
  • Potato chips
  • Juice boxes
  • Water
  • Pretzels
  • Goldfish crackers
  • Chocolate Coconut Chips
  • Dried mango and pineapple
  • Suckers
  • Fruit snacks
  • Seaweed (My girls love seaweed!)
  • Raisins
  • Beef jerky
  • Oreos
  • Apple sauce squeeze pouches
  • Homemade Banana Spelt Muffins

Nuts would also be a great choice, but we’re trying to avoid them with my youngest. However, I think that list above will be plenty to get us there! We’ll stock up again on our way home.

Now I’m wondering. What sort of snacks do you like to bring along on road trips?

Next week, I’m going to have a list of all the car activities I have planned so be sure to watch for that post! #Sponsored
