One memory that stands out from my childhood vacations was the special eatable treats that my parents brought along. I think I remember them because they were only bought for trips - I never got to eat them at home.
Remember Carnation Breakfast Bars?
These were one of my favorite trip foods. I think my mom and dad got these because they were a fast, easy thing to throw at me in the car after dragging me out of bed at 4 in the morning "to get an early start". Carnation no longer makes these but I still wistfully look for them in the grocery store.
The other memorable food item we took on trips were those little individual boxes of cereal. If you carefully cut them open and peel the box back, you can pour in milk and eat them straight of the box. Another item of convenience - no bowls needed!
On our recent road trip, Master Munchkin got to chug some sweet, old-fashioned, ice-cold root beer. This is a special treat for him since we don't usually have pop in the house. He must have downed at least 4 of those bottles over the course of our stay!
Do you have any fond memories of "Trip food" or special treats when you were traveling?
