Twizzlers Landmark Summer Sweepstakes and Our Favorite Family Road Trip Destination

Twizzlers Candy, the perfect on-the-go treat, is helping to sweeten family travel this summer with the Twizzlers Landmark Summer Sweepstakes, where Twizzlers fans could win a trip to a well-known United States destination and win road trip-themed prizes instantly every day from now through September 4, 2011! Please visit for your chance to win.
Our favorite family road trip destination is Washington D.C. It's the city to see lots of U.S. landmarks all in one place and to visit some of the best museums in the country completely free! I look forward to winning one of the great prizes from Twizzlers Landmark Summer promotion and use it on our road trip this summer.

Family travel expert Emily Kaufman, “The Travel Mom,” has offered some tips for a fun and safe family road trip and I'd like to share them with you:

*Create a boredom bag. Convert a hanging travel cosmetic case into a case full of fun and hang it from the seat back in front of the kids’ seats. Consider creating fun works of art with Twizzlers. Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy before snacking on them!

*Take your trip “online.” From GPS systems to phone applications, trips are no longer a navigation nightmare.

*Think through the snacks you pack. Avoid packing snacks that are easy to spill like juice boxes or snacks that melt. Try plastic bottles with sports tops and bring along Twizzlers Candy or Twizzlers Nibs Candy – they are easy to share and don’t melt, making them the perfect car ride treat.
