Public Service Announcement

Road trip snacks clearly fall into 2 separate and distinct categories. There are “Fast Gobble” and “Slow Gobble” snacks.

It is a delicate balance to have sufficient supply of both: too much of the former, and you can hardly drag yourself out of the car into the truck stop for an open face roast beef sandwich. On the other hand, if you have an abundance of the latter, you may find yourself thrusting them on your hostess and eating them every day for the rest of your vacation.

Here is a chart that illustrates these truths. Feel free to adjust it to your own family and circumstances. Ennnnjoy.
