Yes it’s that time of year! Time for road trips! Because of that, I’ve partnered with FLIPZ pretzels to share some easy road trip hacks. Wherever your road trip takes you, whether it be the beach, family reunion, or your favorite National park, i’ve got you covered.
Road trips can be long and we all know it’s safer to pull over for a pit stop than push through when you are drowsy. I saw this cozy, shady lounge idea on Pinterest and knew I had to give it a try. It was such a fun way to enjoy some shade and R&R after driving for so long. I lied back and enjoyed reading my favorite magazines, eating sweet watermelon slices and snacking on the irresistible FLIPZ® Pretzels as I watched group after group of people walking past in their Pokemon conquests. All you need are a few big sheets, some comfy pillows and a low hanging branch and you are ready to enjoy a peaceful summers afternoon. What really completes this though are the snacks and treats. To me good times always include a good snack and I’ve always loved FLIPZ® Pretzels so it only made sense to bring them along.
Another way to break up the monotony of long hours on the road involves my favorite subject; food! My kids always get so excited when I say I’m packing up a picnic to take with us on the road and they get even more excited once they’ve realized I’ve included FLIPZ® in our picnic lunch! They are the perfect snack to take on the go and they’re the perfect treat for a cool summers day. My family has always loved every flavor of FLIPZ® we’ve tried and recently we spotted the Birthday Cake FLIPZ® at target and of course we were all instantly hooked! I think if I had to pick a favorite I’d probably pick White Fudge and I must say the White Fudge goes perfectly with strawberries! It’s a match meant to be.
Summer is all about fun and we decided not to let it stop there. A few days later, after arriving at our destination, we headed over to the beach and let the kids have a beach day! It was a well-needed break from the heat and the kids loved snacking, building sand castles and swimming in the refreshingly Caribbean-like blue water. And of course I brought along some FLIPZ® pretzels because summer mini trips need a good, easy treat!
A cup holder and plastic cup is an easy way to make sure every one in the car isn’t fighting over a bag. :)
FLIPZ® are perfect for taking on the road, at the beach, in the park or wherever this summer takes you. We’ve had so much fun on our close to home summer getaways and can’t wait to see what the rest of the summer holds for us!
