What do you snack on, on the way home from grocery shopping?

Most times , when I go food shopping, I like to snack on something on the way home.

In the past, I used to buy an Italian bread ( right out of the oven at the bakery) to snack on. Problem was , I would eat a significant amount of it by the timeI got home ( 2 mile trip).

Now I find myself buying a few olives ( multiple varieties) to hold me over. On occasion, and if available, Ill also snack on some fresh peas.

Just curious of anyone else gets a quick nosh for the ride home.

I used to stop at a bulk food store and grab dates for the ride home. It was one of the last stores on the outside of the town I shopped in..I don't live near it anymore. Now, I buy my dates in packets at the supermarket. I rarely eat them at home...

My wife used to complain that I never brought home a baguette or Italian bread without the end bitten off.

So now I bite off the end, then turn tbe bread around in the bag so it looks whole when I get home from food shopping.

Lol!!! I really just did laugh out loud, Rock.

Well, you know, it's easier to carry with one missing.

I usually grab an everything roll or egg rolls out of the deli at my market for the 17 mile ride home, and a bottle of sweet tea to drink.

Reminds me of a story of when I was a youngster. My parents were gone and left us money to go and get some KFC. I was elected to go on my bike and get a bucket of chicken. I put the bag of chicken and sides on the handlebars. I was so hungry, by the time I got home I had picked most of the crispy skin off of all of the chicken. My sister chased me around the house trying to knock my head off...good times...

Same here. I usually try to eat before I go shopping so I don't buy as much.

Was just going to say that, Steve. I know me, and shopping when I'm hungry always leads to more impulse buying.
