Have a Twizzler Summer

Family vacation time is almost here and Twizzler wants to be part of your vacation this year.

According to family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” families are starting to think past the backyard “staycation” and are rediscovering the freedom of the open road. Kaufman shares the following tips for a fun and safe family road trip:

  • Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers
    Pull ‘n’ Peel
    Candy before snacking on them!
  • Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.
  • Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.
One of our favorite family vacations where we were able to visit a great landmark was our trip two years ago to Niagara Falls.  My kids were in absolute awe of the falls. We were able to visit both the US and Canadian side and it was really fun to see the differences between the serene and nature-loving American side as opposed to the touristy Canadian side. As my kids get older, I plan on having them see more and more of our country.  Next year will be Disney and the year following will probably be Washington DC.  Regardless of where we go, we always pack our bags with snacks in order to save time and money and Twizzlers are definitely a great option that the whole family enjoys!
