Enjoy Your Favorite Meals On The Road

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Ellio’s Pizza. All opinions are 100% mine.

Summer vacation is here, and so are family vacations. We recently traveled down to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for a fun family trip, and had a great time. We traveled via railroad, a 12 hour ride, and because I was the good mom and stocked great snacks to take along, the time flew by without whining or hunger pangs…just good times!

A favorite food in our family is always Ellio’s Pizza, so I knew I had to find a way to take it on the road and make it travel well with us. Luckily, Ellio’s Products are perfectly shaped for packing and traveling because these delicious snacks are rectangle-shaped, making it easier to cut them into squares and rectangles without any waste.

I bought travel packs in multiple sizes that were safe for children, air-tight, BPA free and even included fitted, reusable ice packs, but since we were only traveling for half a day (and would probably gobble these up quickly) we didn’t use those. I bought mini-lunch bags for each of our children, and cut Ellio’s Pizza in both original and pepperoni (for some variety- my boys love pepperoni) into small rectangles that fit into the multiple travel containers, and made sure each had exactly the same thing- no fighting!

Ellio’s Pizza is a perfect toaster oven snack, and cooks in just minutes. When we are on the road at a hotel with a kitchenette, I can pop it into the microwave or toaster oven for a from-home meal, making our kids feel better during any home-sick moments as well. I grew up with Ellio’s Pizza, and now my children think of it as their familiar favorite home snack too. Plus, it’s convenient and saves us money on the road that we’d rather spend having fun!

Ellio’s Pizza launched in my hometown over 50 years ago and has consistently provided delicious, convenient snack ever since. It’s made with real ingredients like 100% mozzarella cheese. It has a zesty sauce and crispy crust that is full of flavor and is still value-priced. When it comes out of the oven, I can’t wait to bite into it!

    This must be an east coast brand? I haven’t heard of it and when checking the locator they don’t have any stores that sell it within 50 miles. It does look delicious, and what kid wouldn’t want to snack on pizza while on the train?! :)ReplyCancel
