Taco Bell Best Fast Food For Cars

IRVINE, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Chew on this: When it comes to eating fast food in your car, Taco Bell drives away with top honors.

That’s according to Kelton Research, which has created something called the “Dashboard Dining Index” that rates fast food chain items on a 10-point scale based on messiness, convenience and portability.

The No. 1 item is the Taco Bell “Crunchwrap Supreme” which scored 8.4 points because its hexagon-shaped tortilla shell helped prevent spills and made for easy one-hand eating.

Meanwhile, Burger King’s Chicken Tenders are the worst food to eat in a car, earning only 6.7 points for portability.

Finally, Wendy’s Junior Bacon Cheeseburger is the fast food item requiring the least amount of napkins – only one per burger – while people who chowed down on McDonalds Chicken McNuggets needed nearly two napkins per order.
