@cpierce Yeah I guess I hadn’t thought of grapes. I guess I was thinking about stuff like oranges and plums and peaches. I always have to wash my hands after eating bananas too because they feel weird, and I have to peel off those gross stringy things to be able to enjoy it, and that gets banana mush all over.
When we were kids my favorite part of the 6 hour car trip to our grandmom’s (most holidays and for a couple weeks each summer) was my Mom always did a “grocery store meal” where we stopped about 2 hours into the trip and got to get “whatever” (within reason) we wanted like goldfish crackers and a candy bar and drink and … Then we’d munch those for the rest of the trip, with a rest stop around hour 4. My favorite was a pack of Laughing Cow cheese wedges. I didn’t even know what kind of cheese it was, I just loved the silky creaminess to counter the chips or other things.
Now my favorite is yogurt covered raisins, but it’s a lot of calories, so I try not to have them often.
@looseneck Plus, if you’re Harry in the first scene of When Harry Met Sally, you can spit the seeds against the rolled-up window in order to cleverly illustrate how gross and careless you are in your youth.
Early flights I will pretty often have a bagel and coffee. Road trips, fast food, or vending machine garbage. A poptart can allow you to survive for several hours in the morning, in a desperation scenario.
i don’t really “travel” but on days where i don’t have a chance to eat anything before picking my partner up from work i’ll grab something extra at the grocery store to eat in the car. watermelon chunks are a favorite if the season is right, or grapes, or justin’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups.
if i’m drunk after a club, string cheese or potato salad or tacquitos.
when i was little we used to drive about six hours for a family reunion each year and my gramma would make finger sandwiches- chicken salad was my fave.
@JaredParker Yeah, wasabi peas are awesome. Tried soy wasabi almonds one time because a co-worker had bought a can and decided they were gross and didn’t want them anymore, and those were really good too. Maybe meh should sell those.
I don’t travel a lot but I do go on long bike rides. I have a favorite 60 mile ride where at the half way point I’ll soak my feet in the river and eat trail mix with travel box of wine, usually Bandit.
