On the road again

On the road again

With the kids home from school for upwards of 10 days, now is as good a time as any to take that vacation you’ve been putting off. Whether you’re flying to Walt Disney World, driving down to the beach or up into the mountains, you and your family are going to need some travel-friendly treats to munch on during your journey. Mother Rucker’s Sweets offers boxed and individually wrapped cookies, brittle and brownies to help make the trip a tasty one. Here are some of our tried and true travel faves:

Trail Mix. A bowl or bag of trail mix can go a long way on a long trip. And when you make it yourself, you can choose what—and how much—goes into the mix. Popular items include mixed nuts, pretzels, dried fruit, seeds and chocolate candy. Add some crumbled Mother Rucker’s cookies or Cookie Brittle to get the vacation started right!

Chippies. You need not alter these classic chocolate chip cookies for a train, plane or automobile. Made from scratch, these cake-like cookies are bursting with chocolate in every bite. They arrive individually wrapped, which makes them easy to pack—and an easy snack when you’re on the go.

Cocoa Cookie Brittle and peanut butter. A peanut butter and jelly sandwich is a great road-trip lunch, but what about dessert? Spread some creamy PB (or almond butter) on our scratch-baked Cocoa Cookie Brittle cookies. Made with natural cocoa powder, real butter and a touch of vanilla, these little cookies will make you wish every day was a family vacation.

Cherry Almond Sugar Gems and yogurt. If you’re traveling with an ice chest, throw in a few single-serve containers of vanilla yogurt and a box of our Cherry Almond Sugar Gems. These cookies combine almond and cherry in a delightful buttery sugar cookie, which is further enhanced with the rich and creamy taste of yogurt. Ideal for a breakfast treat or an afternoon pick-me up, this is one dessert that kids and adults can appreciate.

Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies and bananas. A kitchen isn’t necessary to make a tasty meal. Our soft, chewy and decadent Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies pair perfectly with a banana to create that sweet, salty and hearty taste made famous by the King himself.

Make your spring break one to remember with sweet snacks no one will want to forget.
