I’ve always been a curious adventurer yearning to experience what’s out there. Luckily, I had parents who fostered this desire to see the world. Growing up, we were always traveling. Whether for dance competitions and performances, vacations or to visit friends, we loved hitting the road or hopping on an airplane to see a new place or try something new. Before college, I’d already been to places like Mexico, Hawaii, Europe, New York City, the Grand Canyon and Los Angeles. I am so grateful my parents chose to spend our time and money on living life. To this day, whether it’s near or far, I love an awesome adventure.
As an adult, my restless spirit persists. I start to get the itch if I haven’t been anywhere in a while. If I start feeling this way, I’ll plan a weekend getaway with the boys or Matthew. When we’re traveling by car, we always pack snacks and drinks to avoid spending a small fortune at convenience stores along the route.
My favorite beverage to take on the road (and to drink at home) is DASANI® Sparkling Water. After being in the car for a while, it’s so nice to pull a refreshing sparkling water out of my little cooler and sip on it while zooming down the highway.
DASANI comes in numerous flavors to meet everyone’s taste buds. From Berry and Pear Kiwi to Blood Orange and Black Cherry and more, you can find a flavor that suits every family member. I like all of the flavors but Black Cherry and Kiwi Pear are my two favorites. Nonetheless, I would never turn away any of them. If you’re also a road tripper or someone who often adventures by car, here are a few quick tips to help you save time and money.
4 Quick Snack Tips When Traveling
Plan ahead: Make a list of food and drinks you want to take in the car. Grocery shop at least several days before you leave. This will alleviate a lot of stress. You’ll be packing clothes and loading the car in the days and hours leading up to the trip. If you already have all of your snacks purchased, you’ll have one less thing to worry bout.
Cut or package appropriate items: Cut and slice food items before you get on the road. Pre-package everything in small bags so you aren’t rummaging around the cooler or knapsack trying to find something, and also so you’re not trying to cut fruit or cheese while riding down the road.
Bring utensils, plates and napkins: You may not end up needing all of this, but it’s still wise to bring it. You may need a spoon or knife while on the road. Or someone may need a plate and most everyone will probably need napkins. By already having these items, you can avoid an unnecessary stop or spill.
Chill and pack DASANI Sparkling Water: Purchase your favorite brands of DASANI Sparking Water and put them in the fridge for at least a day before you leave. On the day of the trip, make sure your waters are packed tight and on ice. There’s nothing more refreshing than popping open a can of DASANI while zooming down the highway.
To purchase DASANI Sparkling Water, visit your closest Kroger or Kroger banner store to find all the yummy flavors. You can use the store locator tool to find the store nearest you. Even if you’re traveling, you can use the locator tool and grab some DASANI Sparkling Water while on the road.

I like Dasani water, but I haven’t tried their sparking water yet. The flavours sound really delicious!
It’s perfect when you don’t want regular ol’ water. Enjoy!
I have seen this before and have been curious about it. I love sparkling water and this is definitely a must-try. Also, thank you for inspiring me to take another adventure. I has been a while since I have done that.
Oh my goodness, you’ve got to try DASANI Sparkling Water. It is the best!
