Thank you Hippeas for sponsoring this post. All opinions, content, and thoughts are my own.

Road Trip EssentialsI love a good road trip! Whether it’s driving cross-country with friends or driving 3-hours to your favorite campground, there’s something about being on the open road and getting away from the city. When I’m on the road, I love having good tunes, snacks, and other essentials. Here are my top road trip Essentials that you will need on the road.

Hippeas is the ultimate road trip snack. They are made with organic chickpeas and have 3g of fiber and 4g of protein per 1oz serving!

I get super snacky on the road and crave things with a crunch. That’s why I love Hippeas!

My favorite flavor has to be Bohemian Barbeque. It has the perfect smoky flavor and the perfect crunch that satisfies my cravings

You can find Hippeas at 30,000+ locations and of course good ol’ Amazon.com
