Being stuck in traffic sucks. Whether you're inside your car or dying inside a UV Express, bumper-to-bumper situations will make you feel helpless. Sometimes you just want to scream at the driver, talk to your seatmate, or do everything in your power just to make time fly. But you know what’s worse than being stuck in traffic? Being HUNGRY and stuck in traffic.
But really, you don’t have to go hangry (angry + hungry). The best solution to your growling tummy in transit: sandwiches. This ready-to-eat favorite is your best choice for in-car snacking, whether you’re the one driving or you’re just a passenger.
Of course, that doesn’t mean flavor has to suffer just because a sandwich is the most convenient choice. To help you out, FHM listed some of the best sandwiches you can grab before facing those monstrous traffic jams.
