Travel season is upon us, which means hanging out in the sun all day with the cutest bikini on, sipping on a little bev, and taking the cutest photos with your besties. But before you can get to all your fun spring break plans, you have to experience the journey there. What’s that cheesy saying, “Life is about the journey, not the destination”? Well, it’s true in this case — especially when the journey consists of spending $50 to load the car up with every chocolate snack known to man and a Coke ICEE for a road trip.

I don’t know about you, but my favorite part of any road trip is running into the gas station and stocking up on all the best treats. It’s a proven fact that any car ride is better with a large Dr. Pepper and Cheddar Ruffles.

I’m the type of person to consult the stars for anything and everything, and this situation is no different. I mean, c’mon, deciding which snack you’ll be munching on during your car ride is serious stuff. Luckily, the stars are here to help. Before walking into the gas station, grocery store, or corner market, look to the cosmos for the perfect road trip snack based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Flamin’ Hot Cheetos

Arians are known for being fiery and passionate. They can sometimes be pretty direct. They know what they want and aren’t afraid to step out of the traditional rules of society to get it. So, what better snack to munch on than the Flamin’ Hot Cheetos? They’re spicy and untraditional in the best way. 

Taurus: Cosmic Brownies 

A Taurus is very dependable and hardworking, but also very sensual. A Cosmic Brownie is the perfect treat for them. The rich brownie is a reliable choice, and the colorful candy pieces on top add that extra flair that Taureans are always striving for.

Gemini: Sour Patch Kids

Geminis get a bad rep, and so do Sour Patch Kids. I mean, they’re always being menaces in the Sour Patch commercials. But I love the mix of sour and sweet with the candy (and with Geminis — whoops). Everyone has multiple sides to them. Geminis just let theirs out more freely, and that’s iconic, IMHO.

Cancer: Honeybuns

Cancers are known for being very emotional and moody; they’re literally ruled by the moon. So, think of their emotions coming and going like the moon’s phases. Cancers need a snack as soft and layered as them. Honey Buns are packed with flavors of cinnamon, honey, and sweet glaze. A rich-in-flavor dessert to match the emotionally-rich Cancer. 

Leo: Chocolate Chip Cookies

When I think of a Leo, I think of the ultimate star of the show. Someone who is welcoming, confident, charming, and looks amazing — just like a chocolate chip cookie! Leos have a magnetic energy. They have the same effect as when you say you’ll have just one more cookie and end up eating 10. Leos pull people in that way, too.

Virgo: Trail Mix

Ah, Virgo. Sweet, reliable, trustworthy Virgo. Trail mix is a classic (and so yummy), which is perfect for you! I’ll admit, Trail mix does have a lot going on, which might drive your perfectionist side a little crazy, but it’s a good reminder to just let things happen naturally. 

Libra: Frosted Animal Crackers 

Libra is ruled by Venus, which is the planet of all things beauty and aesthetics. Frosted Animal Crackers are almost too cute to eat. Libras love to maintain balance (their symbol is the scales, after all), and this sweet snack is the perfect blend of a light shortbread cookie and luxurious pink icing and sprinkles. 

Scorpio: Twizzlers

Twizzlers are one of those snacks that when people love them, they really love them. I feel like people feel that way about Scorpios, too, including me. (I am a Scorpio enthusiast, always.) Twizzlers have a subtle sweet side and are kind of addicting, just like Scorpios, which makes this a perfect snack for all my scorpion friends. 

Sagittarius: Pop-Tarts

Sagittarians are optimistic, spontaneous, and open-minded. They need a fun treat to match their energy. Sagittarians get bored very easily, which is why Pop-Tarts are perfect because there are endless flavors to keep them occupied. Might I suggest Hot Fudge Sundae, S’Mores, or Cookies & Crème?

Capricorn: Almond Joy

Capricorns are known as the responsible, successful, and overachieving sign, but they can sometimes come across as a little uptight. Capricorn, grab an Almond Joy — it’ll allow you to stick to your roots but remind you it’s OK to let loose sometimes. An Almond Joy has a rich, reliable, chocolate flavor, but once you bite in, you get all the coconut and almond goodness. A sweet treat hidden on the inside! Kind of like you, Capricorn. 

Aquarius: Skittles

Aquarius, IMHO, is the most unique of the zodiac signs. Aquarians value their freedom, creativity, and relationships, which means Skittles are the perfect road trip snack. An Aquarius will love the multicolors and endless fruit flavors. And come on, “Taste The Rainbow” just sounds like an Aquarius saying. 

Pisces: Rice KrispieS Treat

Pisces is one of the softest signs of the zodiac — a water sign ruled by Neptune, the planet of creativity and dreams. Rice Krispies Treats were made for a Pisces. A little dreamland of gooeyness to represent Pisceans’ sensitive, emotional side.
