Important Question: Share Your Favorite Candy!

What's Your Favorite Road Trip Candy

Over the next few months I am going to stop in from time to time with some questions for my next book. Since this book is all about curating the best go-to recipes for parents for all occasions throughout the calendar year I want your voices to be included! One of the chapters is going to cover road trip snacks, spring break travel treats, and generally portable food for kids. My editor and I thought it would be fun to include a pole of everyone’s favorite travel candy. So, here is my question for you all:

What is your favorite candy to eat when you travel by land, air, or sea? I’d love to know the name of that special sweet nibble you can’t live without when you are on the go. Is there a certain thing you only pick up in the airport? Or, maybe before a road trip you go hog wild at the candy shop and treat yourself to something especially unusual and fun? I’ll tell you my favorite car snack: Twizzlers. It is practically the only time I eat them and I LOVE them. I think this love is a holdover from my childhood. When we were little my mother used to bring them to Mexico when we visited our cousins because they, worryingly, never melted despite the intense heat. Since we were usually down there for Easter it was often the only candy the bunny would bring us!

Remember, there is no wrong answer and I won’t tell anyone your little candy secret. Promise!
