Sweet, then salty, then drink.

Repeat until I get there.

Definitely hitting the Hostess Rack: Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Fruit Pies.
All-American Blackberry Fruit Pies when we can find them. They're like sex, except I'm having it.
Those knee-high Pringles' tubes for sure.
Wildberry Licorice but I get the impression since they were my favorite, it's been discontinued. Haven't been able to find it in a few years now.

I'm not much of a Chocolate person, and it melts and gets gross so very rarely do you see Chocolate on a road trip with me. I might get a hankering for an Eat More bar though. But I do terribly miss the purple, Caramel Eat More bars. Again, anything I like gets discontinued.

For drinks; goto is Cherry Coke. Seconded by RC Cola. Again, neither of which I can find in Canuckistan.

Fast Food stops exclude anything I CAN have at home. So, no A&W, no Mickey D's, no Dairy Queen. Heck yes to Arby's, Wendy's, SONIC (OMG, yes!) Jack-in-the-Box or any of those wonderful, exotic Fast-Food places that don't come north of the 49th.

And yes, I'll be in a pine box before I'm 65. I've come to accept that. Hence, why I'm shoving anything good n' tasty in my mouth while I can. No males in my family born after 1945 have survived to see their golden years. We're cursed. If the drink don't get 'em, then it was either Cancer or Heart failure.

My goal is to be buried in a Steinway casket. laugh2

A new snack for me to have in the car is the chewy Oatmeal-Cranberry cookie from Aldi stores.
Others must like them too, because they are now sold out most of the time.

An Aldi manager told me that to be “first in line” when new stock arrives
I was going to have to use the Aldi app to order the cookies for curb side pick up,
then come in when notified my pre-bagged order was ready.

The end is near when simple Grocery shopping requires the Internet.

Just got done with a 4000+ mile road trip with my Dad. We went through a case of bottled water, 2 large bags of Twizzlers, and 2 large bags of Peanut M&M's. These do not make a mess in the car. Best bang for the buck, to stop and eat is Texas Road House.

One thing I quickly learned not to take on a road trip is Brisk Tea. A friend and I were heading to Tennessee to look at a car. We decided we were thirsty and both of us grabbed a Brisk Iced Tea from the cooler. I think we made it two exits down the road before we pulled off on the exit ramp and stood there like two 6 yrs olds that could not wait any longer. Only problem was we were about 30 at the time....

Cashews, Cheez-Its, and M & M's. Make mine the dark chocolate up
Insider tip: Mix them together. Cashews w/Cheez-Its or M & M's

I like a few grilled pork chops and an ice cold beer for the first 100 miles, then after that its just gas station jerky and Grape crush until I see a fast food sign with anything but Mexican slop.

Gold fish crackers, red licorice , and a must at least once ( sometimes more than 1 ) is a white iced honey bun somewhere along the trip.
