Road trips, I love them! To me, there is nothing better than setting off, exploring back roads and little towns. Finding the local only markets and tiny bakeries that make the best sourdough olive loaf and enjoying it picnic style with shoeless feet and sun-kissed shoulders. When we think of road trip snacks, it is often chips and lollies that make it into the front seat, however, these bars are delicious and help to keep you full in between pit stops and bush walks.
