Jetting off for weekend getaway or planning and end of summer road trip? Hit your local CVS Pharmacy before you go and pack some no-mess and no-fuss travel snacks to curb your hunger, and keep you energized! Lucky for me, a box of travel snacks from CVS arrived for me to review just before our beach road trip last month.
When you are on the road and it hits you – the powerful hunger of a snack attack – you want to be prepared. When I travel by plane, I seem to always be cutting it close. There is never time to stop for a (over-priced) bite to eat at the airport, so I always keep a bag of trail mix or dried fruit in my purse. There is nothing worse than arriving to a hotel at 9pm feeling jet lagged AND hungry.
Packing for a family vacation or weekend getaway can be such a chore. I am always worried that I have packed too much or not enough. God forbid should I forget to pack a cell phone charger or somebody’s tablet. I even had to pack for the dogs for our beach trip. I think the dogs had more gear in the car than the humans. So, being able to grab some no-fuss snacks is a real time saver and one less thing to worry about.
For our beach road trip we had a delicious variety of CVS Gold Emblem Snacks, including:
Gold Emblem Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers (a favorite of our 2 traveling dogs!)
Gold Emblem Cheese Sandwich Crackers
Gold Emblem Mountain Blend Trail Mix (Becca’s favorite!)
Gold Emblem Asian Blend Trail Mix
Gold Emblem Greek-Style Yogurt Coated Cranberries (deee-lish!)
Gold Emblem Wasabi Peas (Grandma Laura’s favorite!)
Gold Emblem Banana Chips
Gold Emblem Virginia Stadium Peanuts
Gold Emblem California Raisins
Our 3.5 hour road trip with kids and dogs might have felt more like 10 hours, if it hadn’t been for these delicious snacks that kept everyone happy. My best tip for packing travel snacks is to keep it simple. Stop into CVS for some delicious and filling snacks such as trail mix, cracker and dried fruit then place them in a small plastic bin for easy access on the road.

I know the contest is over but I have to comment on these dogs. I had 2 bichons. I just lost one a few months ago. I have one still. They are adorable. I am partial to little white dogs. Great picture!!!!
I’m so sorry for the loss of your dog, Rita. Bichons are wonderful dogs.
