Words: Crush

Nothing says ‘family time’ quite like a road trip. The holiday season is the perfect time for you and your family to get away from it all – pack up the kids, take a few snacks and hit the open road, it’s as much about the journey as it is the destination. Make this year’s road trip a more enjoyable experience by simply packing smart and eating better. Yes, all of this is possible thanks to Tuffy – say goodbye to those fast food road stops where you end up spending unnecessary money on food that’s unhealthy and doesn’t hit the spot.

Tuffy’s Durable Range of Plastic Bags

Tuffy’s plastic sandwich and freezer bags are produced using freshMAX technology – an additive that strengthens plastic at a molecular level and stops bacteria from growing. They also have a durable Tufflock double seal, guaranteeing that they keep food fresher. They are the perfect bags to store pre-made meals and snacks for on the road to avoid mess and keep food tasting great. Healthy, homemade snacks are in, fast food is out.

Keep Things Clean

When we’re travelling on the road with our families it’s inevitable that we produce a lot of garbage. Used up napkins, food scraps, tissues, water bottles, you name it – the car always seems to fill up with them. Instead of making multiple stops to throw away your garbage, keep one of Tuffy’s Green Bags with you in the car. Not only are they perforated and recyclable, but they are also made from 100% certified recycled items – now that’s good news for the earth!

Now that we’ve outlined how Tuffy bags are perfect for all of your road trip needs, let’s get to the next important point, the tasty food you put in them. We’ve partnered with Tuffy to bring you some road trip snack ideas that are delicious and convenient for the whole family.

Mature Cheddar with Tomato & Red Onion Relish Sourdough Sarmie


Tomatoes are notorious for making sandwiches soggy; we solve that problem by making them into a delish tomato and red onion relish instead. We’ve added some mature cheddar, fresh rocket and zingy pickles to give you the perfect road trip sarmie.

Store your sourdough sarmies in Tuffy’s flip-top or zipper sandwich bags, either way, your sarmies will be as fresh as when they were made.

Chickpea Pecan Brownies


Travelling on the road with kids can be difficult and usually involves a constant demand for snacks, especially sugary snacks. The last thing you want on a road trip is hyperactive kids bouncing off the car walls and not being able to sit still. Make the smart choice and make some healthy, sweet treats for the whole family! These tasty brownies are great for road trip snacks; with the added benefit of chickpeas for protein and no refined sugar, your kids will love them.

Store these in any of Tuffy’s sealable bags for freshness and maximum flavour.

Hot tip – these brownies can also be frozen in Tuffy’s freezer bags, when you are ready to enjoy, simply remove and allow to defrost at room temperature. If you can’t wait, remove from the bag and microwave on low in 10-second increments until warmed through. Even better served with a dollop of your favourite vanilla ice cream.
