The Best Foods to Eat While Driving

Wavebreak Media/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- It’s against the law in many states to talk on a cellphone or text while driving, but there are no laws against eating a candy bar or french fries while behind the wheel.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defines a driving distraction as “anything that diverts the driver's attention from the primary tasks of navigating the vehicle and responding to critical events.” 

But is a Snickers candy bar a distraction?

The website Insure.com recently surveyed 1,500 licensed drivers aged 25 and older to find the foods that were the easiest to consume while driving.

Here’s Insure.com’s ranking of the most convenient foods to eat while driving:

  1. Candy bar, 16%
  2. French fries, 15%
  3. Potato chips, 9%
  4. Chicken nuggets, 8%
  5. Doughnut, 8%
  6. Fresh fruit, 8%
  7. Hamburger, 7%
