Skip to comments.5 Worst Drive-Thru Foods(suggestions for Dinner)
Posted on 04/13/2011 7:19:05 AM PDT by US Navy Vet
How much time did you spend in your car last week? Ten hours? Fifteen maybe? Wow, that sounds like a lot. But it's still probably an underestimate: As it turns out, the average American now spends 21 hours per week stuck inside a mobile metal box.

21 hours...avg 40 mph = 840 miles x 52 weeks = 43,680 miles per year. I don’t think so....
Its probably an average of 10 mph, stuck in traffic trying to get to work or home.
Fried egg rolls from Dodge’s Store in Basset, Va
Not sure if the number in the article is accurate, but I am guessing most people are also sitting a traffic lights or going very slow on the highway during a good portion of their commute. My wife works maybe 6 miles from home, but has a 30+ minute commute most days.
Ah, US Navy vet.....
that’s why it’s SO great being retired...
from the Navy!
A tuna sandwich made the list?
""3. WORST BURGER
Hardees 2/3 lb. Monster Thickburger
95 g fat (36 g saturated)
3,020 mg sodium
At one-third pound of beef, the original Thickburger offers plenty by way of gluttony, but compared to this thing it appears positively conservative. Mashed between beef and bun are 4 strips of bacon, 3 slices of cheese, and a big gob of mayonnaise. That's how it earns nearly twice the saturated fat you should consume in an entire day!""
We've called Quizno's out for this sandwich before, and we'll keep at it until they decide trim back on the excesses.
OK Mommy pants.
When road tripping, my personal preference is Sonic. They serve their burgers in those neat foil envelopes which are perhaps the most sanitary way to eat while driving without getting ketchup and mustard up and down your shirt, or juggling wrappers, boxes, etc. The McDonald breakfast bagels are served in a similar paper envelope as well. Wish they’d do something simliar with their burgers...
Looks good,but I’m not sure if only one will be enough for dinner.
That looks good, but probably not what you would actually get.
The estimate is a crap figure
Lets say you commute, the national average in cities is about 25 minutes.. but lets make it an even thirty to make the math easier.
30 minute commute each way to work... 1 hour per day 5 days a week = 5 hours
Lets say you go to the gym, and that adds 15 minutes each way... another 1/2 hour and you do that 3 days a week.. you’re pretty dedicated... so 1.5 hours per week.
Lets say you do typical shopping or errands during the week.. maybe 30 minutes per trip 2-3 trips a week... another 1 to 1.5 hours per week
And lets say on weekends you are running around like crazy and like to hit the open road and go places... another say 4 hours per day for 2 days.. 8 hours
So all that tallied up adds up to 15.5 hours on the top side. and I really don’t think folks spend 4 hours a day on the weekends in their car.. but giving that as an outrageous example. you still don’t get to 21 hours per week.
10-15 would be my guess for the typical person in their car.
I know a lot of people who spend more than that in their car.
In my area a 45 minute to 1 hour commute is average. Going anywhere to shop is a 30 minute to 1 drive each way.
I’d say the 15-20 hour range for total car time is realistic.
He should just list the food and keep his whining nancy-boy face shut.
It all looks very good.
Thats insane. and we wonder why . . .
Such a scold!
C’mon, I’ve NEVER had fast food that didn’t look EXACTLY like the pretty adverts!
