Roadside Challenge : Nashville To New Orleans

There are the classic regional foods we set out to try on any 50 Campfires Field Trip. Those are the ones for which we’ve delivered these recipes so you can try them and enjoy them. Then there are the foods that as an outsider, just seem strange, even weird.

To test them out, we came up with the Road Trip $2 Food Challenge. At each gas station or convenience store stop, one member of the team had to select a food item for $2 or less that neither had ever eaten before and give it an on the spot taste test.

The results are delectable … at least as far as watching from afar. For the guys on the road … not always necessarily so much.
