Candy Bars, Fries Ranked Best Driving Foods
Drivers score candy bars and french fries as the best foods to eat while driving, according to a survey by Insure.com. While American motorists are widely divided in their top picks for car food, 16 percent would choose a candy bar. The go-to snack food scored well on a number of attributes: It can be eaten with one hand, it doesn’t drip and it’s tasty. Out of 15 foods included in the survey, candy bars also rated highest for not leaving a smell in the car.
French fries were a very close second for best car food, with 15 percent choosing the hot potato sticks. As with candy bars, fries made it to the top of list due to high scores for being a one-handed food, non-drippy and tasty.
French fries would have ranked No. 1 if they left less odor in the car. Only tacos rated worse for lingering smell. Here’s how drivers rate the top five foods to eat while driving: 1) Candy bar; 2) French fries; 3) Potato chips; 4) Chicken nuggets; 5) Doughnut. Talk about indulging behind the wheel!
