Homemade snacks are the best when traveling. They’re a little reminder of home and they beat anything you could find at the airport or gas station to tide you over for your next meal. The best kinds of snacks are the ones that you can just throw in your bag and not worry about keeping cold in the refrigerator.

We’ve rounded up a few of our favorites, from a classic chewy granola bar, to protein-heavy jerky, to some sweet treats like Nutella puppy chow!

Another option besides homemade snacks, of course, is some fresh fruit or vegetables. Especially during the summer months when everything is in season, produce is a great snack idea as long as it doesn’t smell and you don’t need a knife to cut it up or any kind of utensil to enjoy the snack.
