Poor Choice of Road Trip Snacks

As I was cleaning Cornelius (my car) today, I realized I made some poor choices for road snacks late in my trip across the country. Junior mints and powdered donuts are examples of such bad choices. If the junior mints get loose (which one may have in my car), they melt into a puddle of chocolate, mint goo. And powdered donuts, well, that speaks for itself. Mind you, those were my poor choices in Wyoming. By that point in the road trip, I was tired of the trip and wasn't thinking clearly. Up until then, my packed at home chex mix, apples, granola bars, water, and cherry tomatoes had served me very well (oh, and diet coke...well! I traveled over 2,000 miles after all!). I had cheerfully weathered the rain of West Virginia and Pennsylvania, and the miles of nothingness of Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, and Kansas. I got to spend some quality time thinking about my life. But by Wyoming, for some reason I thought, "Hey, powdered donuts! That is an excellent idea!" Ha. Not quite.

Well I'm glad you had something to see you through Wyoming... after all!

It's true... something's got to get you through. The great news is that this means you are home. Me too. Let's catch up sometime. I'll call you.

Seriously, what is it about being in the car that makes you think you can eat junk and get away with it? My favorites are twix and bottle caps. Every time we drive to Utah and back, I have to have them! And compared to what you have driven, that's nothing! I do recommend swedish fish. At least if they fall they're not made of chocolate. Well let me know when you're up the Boise way. I would love to see you! And we have an extra bedroom if you want to come hang out for a day or two.

I hear you! I always travel with hot tamales- which also leave a gooey mess in your car if they melt...sad. BUT- you are in UT! Yeah! I'll be there in just a couple of weeks. We'll have to get together!

Powdered Donuts? I think they are worth the mess if you ask me...yum!

I am a big fan of peanut M&M's, but they are definitely not a car snack. How long are you going to be around? I would love to see you!
