Twizzlers Landmark Summer – With Giveaway

Twizzlers Logo

Are you a licorice lover? There are lots of licorice lovers in my family, especially my parents, who can’t go to a movie without it. Twizzlers has been around for as long as I remember. In celebration of the Twizzlers Landmark Summer™ promotion, Twizzlers is giving consumers the chance to win a trip to a well-known U.S. landmark destination plus daily, road trip-themed prizes throughout the summer, just by visiting www.twizzlers.com.

Family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” is a part of this promotion and is sharing her tips for making your family road trip a sweet and memorable experience. Emily emphasizes the importance of making the road trip a part of the journey. Take advantage of these tips for a fun and safe family road trip:

Be realistic. No matter how old your kids are (or even the adults) leaving before dawn isn’t a good idea. Drivers need plenty of rest before getting behind the wheel. Consider departing after breakfast once rush hour traffic has eased.

Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Fill each pocket with age-appropriate activities that will keep them occupied and organized.
Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare. Also, there are a wide variety of portable DVD players, gaming systems and phone games to keep the kids happy.
Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops or lids that can be tightly sealed for drinks.

  1. Most memorable was when my mom and I tried to take a vacation when I was about six. We were going to Lake Schaefer and it should have been about an hour and half drive. My mom got lost, which she still does today, and it took about 5 hours.

  2. My most memorable was my sr yr and taking a trip with my best friend and her family. It was a two week road trip to Oregon, saw lots on that trip that I never would have at the opportunity to see

  3. On one of my most memorable road trips, I saw a river running backwards. I’m from the deep south–Louisiana and southeast Texas, and we all know the rivers run south, towards the Gulf. Sometimes they run eastward to hook up with the Mississippi to head south. About 5 years ago I moved to Colorado to be with my new husband, and he took me on a trip across the state. We stopped at a roadside park and walked to a riverbank, where I became completely disoriented–the water was running westward! Yes, we had crossed the continental divide. I know this is kind of silly, and, of course I knew about this. But it was my first time to see it.

  4. Kept packing simple and light, igt helped make the miles go pleasantly along wigth good company and good conversation. Thanks for the suggestions.

  5. My past road trips were iffy lol I would mind going cross country this time to make a few stops like the Hoover Dam and Yellowstone Park.

  6. I took a “West Coast Extravaganza” trip with my husband before we had kids. No plans, no reservations, lots of fun and a few arguements along the way!

  7. Road trip to San Antonio Texas.. was a blast, with just Hubby and I, no kids! Our rodeo club won state finals and we were heading down to compete in the nationals, went on the river walk, visited the Alamo and more.

  8. My husband and I have only taken ONE road trip – to Santa Fe – and we had so much fun. Ate at local restaurants (no chains) and went to antique stores, museums, art galleries, outdoor markets – can’t wait to do it again!!!

  9. Most memorable road trip was with my Mom…the year after HS we went to pick up my little brother from a summer camp in Maine.
    We drove thru to the coast and ate lobster everyday up to Maine where we picked up my brother.
    Then the three of us traveled west thru Canada and when we were above Illinois we headed south.
    We traveled and laughed our way thru beautiful countryside and ate and stayed in small towns. It was a blast…I miss her…

  10. My most memorable road trip was with my sister. We drove from Florida to Arizona with lots of stops in between. We went to New Orleans, The grand canyon, Garden of the gods and got stuck in a blizzard on top of a mountain in Colorado. It was crazy, but fun. thanks for the chance!
