Summer Road Trip + Twizzlers = Happiness!

Summer time is just around the corner and Twizzlers wants to be a part of your family's road trips this year!

According to family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” families are starting to think past the backyard “staycation” and are rediscovering the freedom of the open road. Kaufman shares the following tips for a fun and safe family road trip:

  • Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers
    Pull ‘n’ Peel
    Candy before snacking on them!
  • Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.
  • Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.
Our family will soon hit the road on our way to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We make sure to pack the car with lots of movies, activities and snacks including some tasty Twizzlers. Yum! I love to see my kids' smiling faces once we reach the sun-filled beaches! While in Myrtle Beach, we always make one additional short road trip to Charleston, South Carolina. There is so many historical sites and fun things to check out while we are there. The kids absolutely love it as do we and I am certainly looking forward to our summer vacation!

Where will you be heading this summer and what are your favorite road trip snacks?
