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.
For more information and to enter the Twizzlers Landmark Summer promotion, visit www.twizzlers.com. You can also visit the Twizzlers Facebook page to create fun photo mash-ups and map your own road trip.
ONE winner will receive a National Geographic Guide to the National Parks and some Twizzlers Candy to enjoy on their next road trip.
