Road trip with Twizzlers

Summer is fast approaching and I admit my family will most likely be making a few road trips during those hot months. The kiddos are gonna be out of school and my husband is soon to be a stay at home dad. That means open scheduling and we can finally get some family trips in.
With that of course comes planning. I like to have everything plotted out ahead of time including our snacks! One awesome snack to have on hand are Twizzlers. They are easy to pass around, keep the kids quiet and they are not sticky and messy like other candy that seems to NOT stay in my little ones mouth, lol.
Travel expert Emily Kaufman, suggests the following tips for a fun and safe family road trip:

■Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers
Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy before snacking on them!
■Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.
■Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.

If you have a really talented kiddo, perhaps they can recreate this:
Or I bet they could recreate this, lol :

Whatever you decide, make sure to snag a bag of Twizzlers(I prefer the black licorice but my family prefers the red)
