Next to the coffee in many convenience stores there is a selection of pastries and large cookies ... those are all favorites of mine.
I also enjoy the little $0.99 packettes of salted almonds (sodium and potassium), and occasionally the beef jerky. I used to eat potato chips quite often, and still will once in a while, but now I prefer the salted almonds.
Sometimes the convenience stores go so far as to sell pizza by the slice, or hot dogs, or something ... and if I'm ready for a "meal" when I reach a convenience store, I'll go for something like that. It's a lot faster than sitting down in a restaurant.
For beverages, I mentioned these in another post:
- 100% pure orange juice
- Nestea Iced Tea
- Orange pop
Normally, while sitting at home in an evening, I love my chocolate ... but oddly, when I am on a brevet, I do not like chocolate and will not purchase a chocolate bar along the way. I can't explain why ... but when I'm cycling, chocolate just has little or no appeal to me at all.
