Road Trip Essentials

Push Pops, Button Candy, Pop Rocks, Nerds, Airheads, Chub Chubs, Salt Water Taffy…such were the contents of the absolutely overflowing goodie bags our Mom used to pack Danielle and I for the five-hour bus ride to sleep-away camp. This year, we went to visit our cousin at the camp we attended years ago, and stayed at The White Barn Inn in Kennebunkport, Maine (which we’ll be giving you an exclusive tour through tomorrow).

To kick off the trip, we of course had to pack a goodie bag to occupy ourselves on the drive up. Rather than just refreshing our email and surfing Spotify, we consumed the sugar equivalent of Thanksgiving dinner. By the time we arrived we dipped into a kind of sugar coma – just as we’d done every summer ten years ago. Hey candy, thanks for bringing us back…
