Is there food you take with you on a trip?
 
I don't bring anything with me although I tend to bring food and drink back from faraway places.

I noticed someone posted traveling with Raisin Bran. Mrs BV does the same. She takes Oatmeal Crisp with Almonds and Braggs Apple Cider vinegar. Keeps her regular and heartburn free and she doesn't have to worry about finding a source at her destination.

I take a box of Trader Joe's cereal and some coffee with me to Argentina. I also take a bunch of chocolate and other sweet treats (mostly from TJs) to Argentina, and at my friends' place for dinner, you've never seen people eff up food like this - 3 sisters (in the 50+ category) fighting over the leftovers. Same with the Lindt balls and Ferrero Rocher "Costco-sized" packs that another friend brings.

I start every single day of my life with a half of a TJ's dark chocolate bar. Every single day it's the first thing I do when I wake up. So I always take enough to last me through the trip.

Vegemite. I usually toss a travel tube of it in my suitcase. If I have access to Vegemite then I won't go for the big, full breakfast, and I'll just have toast.

(sigh) we're such clichés :) - I don't take it with me but I always scout the food halls for it.

Now that I am an expat(sea turtle) I do the expat thing of visiting Costco stateside and maxing out our FF Status extra baggage allowance.

Lindt's dark 90%
Olive salad for muffuletta
real New York or Montreal style bagels
real 100% maple syrup
Thick cut ribeyes

When going to my vacation home in California, I always bring tea - you just can't get decent tea in the USA. Otherwise I tend to travel with some GF biscuits in case of emergency.

I always take a bag of almonds in the event I get hungry.

If the hotel has a keurig coffee pot & I have room I bring my own pods because I often don't like those provided.

Coffee beans from a good Seattle (non-Starbucks) coffee shop. Dark chocolate (Bag of Dove pieces) to go with my morning coffee. Protein bars. Sam's Club large containers of mixed nuts.

The only time I have to bring food with me when I travel is when I'm on a road trip. They require a bag of Twizzlers. If I haven't bought it in advance, it's the first stop before we hit the road. It is, somewhat, in memory of my great aunt that took me on my first real road trip in the summer of 1978 as we went from central NJ to Boothbay Harbor ME in her Camaro (she was 66) to visit former neighbors of hers. She was stocked with two types of Twizzlers and since then I have to have them on road trips.

What's your coffee shop of choice in Seattle? it's been a long time since I've lived there but I was always partial to Vivace (and my wife still orders from their for my birthday/Father's day/Xmas)
