What are the best road trip snacks?

I want to get some snacks for a 15-hour road trip from St. Louis to Tampa. I'm not too worried about being unhealthy, but I also want a mix of healthy snacks and pure indulgence. What are the best road trip snacks?

“Road trip snacks are one of the many road trip essentials.
If you want traditional road trip snacks and aren’t worried about calories, sugar, or fat, try these:
  • Beef jerky (great for protein but high in sodium)
  • Twizzlers (candy that doesn’t melt)
  • Pringles (not as messy as regular chips)
  • Cans of soda that fit in the cup holder
If you want something healthier, opt for these:
  • Black coffee (iced or hot)
  • Veggies
  • Fresh fruit
  • String cheese
  • Granola bars
  • Nuts
  • Water
When you’re ready for your road trip, there are ways to have peace of mind in your car. Adding roadside assistance to your car insurance policy is a good way to protect you and your family should anything happen on the road. Try Urgently, Jerry’s roadside assistant partner. You get industry-leading roadside assistance for only $50 a year.”
