Fuel Up For Family Road Trips 7-Eleven Now Has Fresh Food
You don’t always have to plan exotic trips to make summer vacations fun. Many of us will be hitting the road for a family road trip. We’ve got the kids some car ride entertainment down to keep boredom at bay. You know you’ve put together an awesome road trip play list to sing along to. But, what to eat along the way that doesn’t involve the greasy spoon cafe or typical burger joints?
It’s nice knowing we can fuel up the car and hungry bellies at 7-Eleven with fresh food on the family road trip. And, because we’re all in a hurry to get to where the fun waits, we can do both all in one easy stop.
It was really a nice change when we walked into 7-Eleven and say the Fresh To Go options! Gone are the limited choices of a bag of chips, stale donuts and candy bars. There’s a whole new section filled with some really great options that won’t make you feel the least bit guilty!
They stocked up on fresh made sandwiches, salads with healthy veggies, fresh packed to-go fruits and even bistro snacking packs with pita, cheese cubes, carrots and hummus for dipping. Not what you’re used to in convenience store grab and go foods!
7-Eleven is making great strides to expand their Fresh Foods line to offer a wider variety of better for you on-the-go options. The world’s largest convenience store retailer makes it easy to grab a quick bite with balanced Fresh Food options for today’s health conscious families. This makes it much easier to keep my waistline in check. I didn’t work hard trying to slim down and shape up for summer only to blow it on the family road trip!
While they of course still offer your everyday favorite snack items, they’ve now opened up a whole new choice for us when it comes to family road trip meals. I was quite impressed to know 7-Eleven’s fresh foods are prepared in local kitchens and delivered to stores daily ensuring premium quality products. Who says you can’t have healthy car food while playing ISpy or counting how many state license plates you can find?

There’s plenty of summer fun waiting, go grab it and feel good about what you’re eating on your way!
