Have you ever been on the road, stopped for a bite to eat, ordered some fries, some onion rings, or pretty much anything that is a receptacle for your favorite condiment only to discover that you don’t have Tabasco sauce?
Worst day EVER!
It’s gotten so ridiculous that I’ve decided to travel with my own condiments. Now, I’m not talking about your run of the mill Heinz ketchup and French’s yellow mustard. I’m talking real mayonnaise, Siracha, and Chipotle Tabasco.
The key to traveling with your own condiments is the travelling case. Some of you may have your own spare suitcase that you travel with.
I think that’s a strong play. Sadly though, my own condiment suitcase is too big for carry-on with most airlines so I’ve had to get creative. A backpack is a good carry-on size container but not too conducive to bringing into a nicer restaurant.
It’s discreet and small enough you can tuck underneath a blazer like you’re going to the movie theatre with that 1 lb. bag of snickers you didn’t buy at concessions.
There are plenty of options out there and I hope that you’ll comment with your own solutions to this very serious issue. In the meantime, make the best of your tour by bringing the comforts of home with you.
