I have to admit that I do this ALL the time. Honestly, it is some kind of weird compulsion. My commute is only 15-20 minutes: Jersey highway and local roads. But I generally am eating something on my way to and from the office. I know that it is supposedly unsafe, but I think that it improves my driving etiquette.... I would flip off twice as many people per unit time if both of my hands were free!
Here is a list, by no means complete, of things that I can recall eating while I was driving recently: almonds, apples, french fries, sesame cold noodles, an omelette, a pickle, hard-boiled eggs which I peeled at 80 mph, raw kale, greek yogurt, carrots, garlic knots, a veggie burger, broccoli rabe, bagels, ice cream cone, sweet potato chips, cheddar cheese, walnuts, popcorn, dark chocolate, pepitas, Munchos, oatmeal, celery sticks, Girl Scout cookies, cacao nibs.... That's all I can think of right now.
I got to thinking about it today while I was peeling a blood orange at 75 mph. Maybe I have a problem. ??????????
So what do you eat while you're driving?
