LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – NOVEMBER 11: Snack items are displayed for sale in a grocery store on November 11, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. U.S. consumer prices have increased solidly in the past few months on items such as food, rent, cars and other goods as inflation has risen to a level not seen in 30 years.

AAA reports that projects 50.7 million Americans will travel 50 miles or more from home this Independence Day weekend, setting a new record for the holiday, and it should be a new record for the number of Americans traveling by car for the holiday. AAA expects 43.2 million people will drive to their destinations, an increase of 2.4% over 2022 and 4% higher than 2019.

With that in mind a new survey by Hi-Chew reveals that 66% of people say snacks can make or break a road trip, and 71% of people say road trips give them a hall pass to eat as many snacks as they like.

The best parts of a road trip survey respondents say, are the snacks (38%) followed by the company (34%) and the stops along the way (30%) 

Here are top road trip snacks:

Chips – 47%

Chocolate – 47%

Cookies – 44% 

Nuts/seeds – 43%

Candy – 42%

Fresh/processed fruit – 40%

Granola bars – 38%

We’re not sure about getting a hall pass to eat what and how much you like, but in moderation everything is ok, right?
