When heading out on a road trip, there are certain items that must be included when you start packing the rig to head out on the highway.  Sure, there are the main staples of your vehicle; oil changes, filling up with gas, cleaning mirrors and windows.  Packing things like an extra blanket or pillow, dog toys, people toys and don't forget to make a cooler up of your favorite beverages to make that trip enjoyable.  And of course, there are the snacks that must accompany any road trip, regardless of distance.

A new survey by the company Hi-Chew says that really, snacks make or break a trip.  66% of people said so.  They also indicate that road trips are a hall pass to eat as many snacks as you want.  Folks even considered snacks the best part of the trip.  Even over the company joining you or any of the stops along the way.  According to responders, chips and chocolate rate the highest across the nation.  Surprisingly, those weren't on the top of our list.
