Ralph Waldo Emerson would likely be horrified by our appropriation of the phrase, but we'd argue that his oft-cited saying "life is a journey, not a destination" is tailor-made to describe the key difference between a road trip and a mind-bogglingly long drive. While you'll get to your destination regardless of outlook, why not enjoy the ride? In this spirit, we asked around our office and rounded up our editors' recommendations for road-trip snacks to transform your next grueling drive from dull to delicious.
No car trip is complete without plenty of snacks to keep you fueled and awake on the open road. If you're feeling ambitious, we've got homemade versions of snack favorites, but if time isn't on your side, we've also included store-bought options from brands we know and love.
