When it comes to road trips, good planning is a must. With just a few weeks of summer left before the start of a new school year, there’s never been a better time to head out on the road and see a new place. Planning tasty and delicious road trip snacks makes a trip run a lot smoother but for families with food allergies, that can be harder than it seems. Luckily, Enjoy Life Foods, a company whose delicious gluten-free and allergen-free baking mixes I’ve featured in the past, also has a line of snack foods perfect for taking on the road!
What I love about Enjoy Life Foods is that not only are the products certified gluten-free, they’re also free of dairy, eggs, nuts, soy and fish/shellfish. Yet even so, the cookies, chocolate and trail mix are full of flavour that even kids without food sensitivities will love. On our recent two-day road trip to central Ontario, I took a few of the snacks along to keep us fuelled up on the road.
Personally, what I enjoyed most was the Enjoy Life Not Nuts! Seed and Fruit Mix. I am a huge fan of nuts so I was a little bit sceptical about a mix that didn’t include nuts in the ingredients. But I also love seeds and the blend of pumpkin and sunflower seeds mixed with dried fruit was just as delicious as any trail mix I’d had before. I especially loved the Beach Bash variety; putting dried pineapple in a trail mix was new to me and it added such a fun and exotic flavour!
But for my chocolate-loving boys, the BoomChocoBoom Bar was the top choice. Since the entire family adores milk chocolate, I wasn’t sure what they would think about dairy-free chocolate, but there was no dairy needed to make this treat tasty! I let the boys share a bar after lunch on the road and the two squares each made the perfect sweet snack after a meal.
