Road trips are fun all year long, but summertime is the prime time for road trips. The warm weather makes you want to be outside, and there’s something about spending summer nights with your family and friends that makes this season all the more memorable. During summer travels, most of us make sure to pack our clothes, gear, and basic necessities. But one thing you can’t forget is: food! Especially while on the road, we all get snacky! Having your own vegan road trip snacks helps you avoid stopping too much for processed goods or too much junk. It’ll save you lots of time if you have things you can reach for right in the car.
That’s why we put together 15 vegan road trip snacks available on Amazon to help you prepare for your summer travels!

Andria says, “My sister bought these for me so I’m reviewing from her purchase. I’ve been a vegetarian for 16 years and I’m very picky. I saw soy protein listed and wasn’t sure if I’d like these. They do NOT have a soy flavor like some items do. That was my fear as I hate veg products that taste strongly like soy. The texture of these is really nice too. It isn’t soggy like some jerky, it doesn’t fall apart like others. It has a nice tearing sound to it when you bite into it, like I vaguely remember real jerky having.
There’s more kick in the Sriracha flavor than the Chipotle, but neither are overly spicy. My non-veg niece and nephew loved these too! My nephew can’t handle much spice at all and he was able to eat these without issue. Personal favorite was the smoked black pepper.”

The first bite I went straight into a decent sized piece of mango but found it to be a little hard. A trick to enjoying this product is to put a piece in your mouth for a few seconds and enjoy the flavor between squeezing it between your teeth. I have ordered dried mango from another company but their product had added sugar and felt like I was eating some kind of candy. You can taste a world of difference between the two, one tastes like a fine wine and the other a cheap beer. I am so happy with my purchase that I decided to try out their papaya and ordered a second box just in case they sell out.”
