We wanted the answer to be Combos. Mr. P from Waconah Regional H.S. did as well when he phoned Slater and Marjo on Monday morning.

The trivia question was, "What is the most common food consumed on a road trip?"

Answers included potato chips, donuts, beef jerky, candy, Combos, and more. There is just something about Combos and a road trip, right? They're very gas station-y. Would you buy Combos at a regular grocery store? I bet some absolutely do.

BEEF JERKY made the list, but not number one. Have you ever realized how bad your breath can stink after beef jerky, though? It is super salty and good, however.

Of course, trail mix is the go-to! For the most part, it's healthy. Nuts, raisins, seeds, and chocolate. The perfect mix of salt and sweet and not a ton of complex carbohydrates.

I had mentioned to Marjo that I had trail mix in my pantry and she was shocked, is that not a normal thing? Waconah's Mr. P is on team Slater, he also has trail mix in his pantry!
