13 Foods to Avoid On a Road Trip

When I saw this list, I was hoping it was going to be foods to avoid because they aren't safe to eat for one reason or another, a peak behind the curtain of things are made at convenience stores. Some of these things on the list are like that, but a lot of them are foods that will either dehydrate you, upset your stomach or increase the number of pitstops you'll need to make on your road trip. Of course, I eat all of these when I'm on a drive to the beach or upstate New York to visit my in-laws, namely beef jerky and soda.
