Going on a Road Trip? We’ve Got Car-Friendly Eats, Cooler Packing Tips + More!

Eats, packing tips, and more for your epic barkada trip.



Hotel rooms booked, itinerary finalized, and a playlist with everyone’s favorite jam—you can almost feel the wind blowing in your hair as you picture your annual barkada road trip.

Before you count down the days (or the hours!), make sure you have enough food in the car and a cooler packed with drinks.

Here are a few suggestions for your road trip eats:


Sausage, Peppers and Onions Sub

These hefty subs are perfect for your mid-afternoon snack (or even lunch!) while on the road.



Buko Pandan Jello

Picnic and road trip-friendly: Keep a tub of buko pandan-flavored gelatin in your cooler as a sweet snack (but nix the ice cream!).



Pinwheel Bites

Not just for kids: these bite-sized snacks are fun and easy to make!



Mac n’ Cheese Croquettes

Mac n’ cheese in bite-sized portions? Soo good!
