This article, 10 Must-Have Snacks for Your Next Road Trip, originally appeared on Chowhound.

So you've decided to hop on the road and explore the wonders of 'Murica by car. Great! Like your vehicle, you're going to need lots of fuel (in the form of food, of course) to get you from place to place. Since we're pretty much the Stephen Hawking of snacks here at Chowhound, we've rounded up 10 of our favorite energy-boosting, healthy, and easily transportable nibbles to set you on the right path when it comes to mindful eating. In fact, you can kick those fast food and convenience store pit stops to the curb if you prep and buy the following products in advance. Bon voyage!

Buddha Bowl Popcorn with Coconut Oil


Popcorn is binge-friendly and it's inevitable that you'll finish an entire bag. Feel less guilty with this health-conscious brand that cooks kernels in coconut oil and seasons with himalayan salt. We're actually pretty sure that Buddha would have approved. Buy it here.
Biena Ranch Chickpea Snacks


Since hummus spoils, snack on the next best thing: roasted chickpeas. These baked delights will remind you of Cooler Ranch Doritos, which is obviously never a bad thing. Buy it here.
Mary's Gone Crackers Pretzels


It's not a pretzel at all, but that doesn't make it any less delicious. If you can get past the deceptive advertising, you'll love noshing on these crunchy, whole grain rods. Buy it here.
Stevia-Sweetened Lily's Dark Chocolate Bar with Almonds


Chocolate is necessary in any situation, but it's absolutely mandatory during a summer road trip. The only remedy to arguments about radio control and backseat driving is chocolate. It's a proven fact. Buy it here.
Duke's Hot and Spicy Smoked Sausages


It's human nature to have random cravings for meat, but too much fast food and sugar-laden jerkies can take a heavy toll on your body. These flavorful tiny sausages are the perfect alternative to Quarter Pounders. In fact, we eat these almost every single day. Buy it here.
Seapoint Farms Dry-Roasted Spicy Wasabi Edamame


Scared of dozing off behind the wheel? Grab a handful of these wasabi-coated soybeans for an instant energy jolt. You may want to be in park, though. They surely pack a punch! Buy it here.
Nuttzo Mixed Nut Butter


You don't need to be paleo to enjoy your new favorite nut blend butter. Cashews, almonds, brazil nuts…it looks like Julie Andrews' "Favorite Things" is going to need a modernized update. Buy it here.
Rhythm Zesty Nacho Kale Chips


It's no Chalupa Supreme, but this nacho cheese kale chip variety may curb your desire to head to Taco Bell (which will also save you a trip to the bathroom. A true win-win.) Buy it here.
That's It Apple-Strawberry Bar


This isn't going to come close to a real apple or pint of fresh strawberries, but it will surely satisfy a craving for fruit. Plus, you get the added benefits of fiber and immunity-supporting vitamin C. Yay to good health. Buy it here.
  Quest Protein Crisps


These may be bland in taste, but protein is essential when it comes to daytime snacking. And wouldn't you rather crunch into something than drink a boring protein shake? It's all about convenience. here.
