What's the most important part of a road trip? Making a budget? Calculating the gas mileage? Packing extra underwear? No! It's making sure you have the best snacks. This is key to avoiding everyone getting hangry when you're not even halfway there yet, and if you stop at Buc-ee's in Temple, Texas, there are some essential snacks you'll need to stock up on.

People literally drive to Texas just to experience the magic of the Buc-ee's gas station. I know that sounds dramatic but, I am telling God's honest truth. I should know - my family from out of town does it all the time.

If you’ve never been to Buc-ee’s, your Life in Texas BINGO card is definitely short one important stamp. Going to Buc-ee's is like a right of passage. With all the delicious varieties of snacks there (along with the only reliably clean bathrooms on the road in Texas), I don’t understand why people want to even leave the building.


Buc-ee's is the perfect gas station that has literally everything you’re looking for, plus things you probably never even knew you needed.

Because their wall-to-wall snacks can be overwhelming for newcomers and veterans alike, I thought I'd put together a handy list of the absolute essentials that have always kept my family happy during long Texas road trips (or late night snack runs).
