9. Dried Fruit

There's a full wall of any kind of dried fruit you can think of. It's all homemade and a tasty alternative to a junk food snack.

8. Gummy Candy

They have pretty much any gummy candy you could dream of. For the sugar lovers, this wall is a dream come true, with enough gummy worms and peach rings to get you from Beaumont to Amarillo. 

7. Breakfast Tacos

Who doesn't love a good breakfast taco? Buc-ee's options are solid, particularly the "Hippo" and "Rhino" (variations of egg, cheese, potatoes, and beans).

6. Trail Mix

Because Buc-ee's has tons of flavorful options of everything, that extends to their trail mix display. They have anything from a spicy Southwestern mix to a chocolate lover's dream.

5. Popcorn

Popcorn is such an easy snack to grab on the go and Buc-ees is full of endless flavor options. The regular caramel popcorn is particularly good, but don't be afraid to branch out and try the caramel camo popcorn which is all different camo shades (yes, including green).

4. Fudge Counter

24 varieties of fudge. Need I say more? Plus they have some wacky flavors like birthday cake and watermelon fudge to shake things up. It's definitely worth stopping in even for a small slice.

3. Pastrami Reuben

This sandwich is the real deal. Coming on a pretzel bun full of pastrami, onion strings, and sauerkraut, this is the best option if you're looking for more of a meal. No questions, just try it. You won't regret it.

2. Beaver Nuggets and Buc-ee's Nug-ees

This is the signature snack that everyone needs to try. Almost like an oversized corn pop, these sugary corn puffs are addicting.

The nug-ees came about after the success of the Beaver Nuggets to provide a more savory version. Its cheesy coating is delicious and makes these a perfect snack for the road.

1. Beef Jerky

Buc-ee's doesn't mess around with their jerky bar. With over 20 flavors to choose from, it's impossible to disappoint. Bohemian garlic is their best seller but a classic pepper turkey jerky is also quite delicious.
