Road trip food. You know—cheap, convenient food that won’t make a huge mess if you're eating it in a moving vehicle.
Fast food, chewy bars, gushers, soda pop, and trail mix were my car-food options growing up, and things stayed on this course through college and beyond. I’m still haunted by the 30-hour drive to Mexico from Ann Arbor, Michigan, in a van full of college students, stopping only for fast food. Eating well on the road has never been a forte of mine, but my most recent adventure forced me to change my ways.
