Whenever we'd go on a road trip - my Mum would always pack snacks - not just for me because of my having diabetes - but for all of us.  Often it saved stopping off - wasting time to get to our final destination (usually to the coast for a holiday).  Also, it saved money by not stopping off at a restaurant.  Eating a road side park was always abit of fun - to run around - let some steam off (so my brother wouldn't contemplate more ways to kill me in the back seat of the car as I kept on bugging him - I mean what are siblings for?).

I've always carried on that tradition (not bugging my passenger(s)) - when we go on a road / air trip - I pack our own food (with air travel I'm abit limited - but still do it - food at the airport is tres cher).  When it comes to a road trip tho' - it's a great time to fill up bags with nibbles that I don't usually keep at home - you know - for those boring highway periods - and you get that snack attack (provided that your BG's are in a good zone - since sometimes being inactive can make my BG go up abit).

So, I'm heading off to Boston for the Canadian long w/e with my DH - and one of my treats I've just bagged up - is 15 gram of pure carb delight - Garden Veggie Straws.  I'll also cut up some healthy veggies - diced up cheese - and a few cans of diet pop.  Oh and who can forget the "sweets" for the road trip!  My fav are sour lemon drops made by Sorbee - only 3 of them have 15 grams of carbs (about 50% of what regular sugar candies have).  Now of course, this doesn't mean I'll be sucking on these sugar free candies every nanosecond.  You have to remember - sugar free does not mean - CALORIE FREE - it all adds up in the end!

What nibbles do you like to pack for the road trip?  I'm curious to know what teases your pallet when you're winding through country roads to your destination!
