1. Licorice

In BEC's truck it'll be chocolate Twizzlers... and in Tigger's any fruity flavor that catches his eyes. This is a GO-TO for all of us with a sweet tooth! The summers are HOT in North Dakota, with temps nearing 100, a treat that won't melt is a must!

2. Trail Mix

Easy to pack and so many options with Trail Mix!  Just remember... watch out for the chocolate pieces... try to stick to those nuts and berries! Getting the right kind of protein without all the sugar makes for our bodies to be able to handle these crazy weather conditions!

3. Beef Jerky

NO BRAINER here! The low-carb snack that packs anywhere and satisfies that crave for something that's "FOOD". There's a reason why cowboys long ago on the dusty trails packed beef jerky. This meaty treat travels well, keeps, and can be eaten as a meal substitute.

4. Granola Bars

Easy to travel and lack the mess! Kids love granola bars! As we all know, one never knows who's jumping in the work truck to the ranch truck to the running to that next football practice. Keeps everyone from being hangry, while giving a little energy to boot!

5. SUNFLOWER SEEDS

This one is an ABSOLUTE in any pickup, truck, 4x4, tractor... Whether you are heading down the road to the next job and need to stay away or sitting in the stands at the next rodeo waiting for the chute to open. There's something about sunflower seeds that make them a delectable treat that keeps the nerves at bay and is really a guilt-free pleasure. PLUS so many flavors that it's truly mindblowing! So be sure to grab a bag, BEC loves the dill... and get to spitt'n seeds!
