We Call Bullshirt on Texas’ Favorite Road Trip Snack
While on the road in Texas, you're bound to get hungry. After all, you'll probably be sitting in the car for quite a while - hours at a time - if you're traveling from one city to another because our state is ridiculously huge. Some of us stop and eat a full meal if we have the time, but others? Well, most of us stop at a convenience store (fingers crossed for a Buc-ee's) to grab something and go.
Thankfully, there's a lot of choices for a snack for any Texan driver to enjoy while cruising down the road.
With so many choices, what snack has been selected most by drivers in Texas? Thankfully, there is data to reveal it. However, I take major issue with it.
The Number One Snack For Road Trips In Texas
The data collected comes to us from Upgraded Points. With help from Google Trends, the company was able to deduce which snacks were munched on the most in every state. Which, let's be honest - for Texas it has to be something like jerky or Beaver Nuggets, right?
That or something that has BBQ flavoring at least. Regardless, what does the data show?
Texas favorite road trip snack is none other than...rice cakes?
Wait Hold On, Rice Cakes?
Is the data off? I mean we don't speak for all Texans here, but Buc-ee's Beaver Nuggets exist right? Also, with everything that H-E-B sells, there has to be something Texans buy while on the road too?
Regardless, we don't think the data is right here. Who are these rice cake eaters, and how are they tricking Google? Is the data thrown off by people Googling where to even find rice cakes among all the actually tasty snacks?
