Sweet version of puffed lotus seeds are great to carry wherever you go, yes they are seriously prefect to pack for travel. If i plan a trip, i dont carry oily foods with us, i do pack quick snacks like oven roasted almonds, cashews or else quick and oil free rice flakes mixture/chivdas or else baked goodies.
