I mix it up.
One bottle of instant breakfast liquid for every 100 km of distance plus one. Eg. A 300 km brevet gets 4bottles, a 400 gets 5, etc.
Same formula for sandwiches...usually ham and cheese with mustard, no mayo.
And stuff to munch in the bento bag...mostly chocolate covered espresso beans and large wintergreen lifesaver.
At lunch and dinner stops its usually a salty soup...French onion, chicken noodle, etc. And a hot sandwich.
I often order more sandwich than I can eat and take the remainder with me in a plastic bag. ( i carry these bags with me for just such occasions).
At convenience stores I'll most often get Dr.Pepper and V8.
