Why I Always Visit Local Supermarkets When I Travel

When I visited France earlier this summer, I didn't intend to eat so many potato chips. Leading up to the trip, I imagined the croissants, the choux à la crème, the jambon-beurre sandwiches, let alone the dishes I'd never heard of and had yet to discover. And boy, did I enjoy all of those delicacies. But as I sat in Charles de Gaulle airport on my way back to the U.S., a bag of Lay's Poulet Rôti caught my eye in a Relay! convenience store, and I couldn't help but think, why not? What's one more bag? With that, I happily purchased the roast chicken-flavored chips and crunched away while waiting to board my flight back to New York.

Nevada's 'Extraterrestrial Highway' Takes You As Close As You Can Get to Area 51

Photography duo Allie Leepson and Jesse McClary find wide-open spaces — and plenty of roadside kitsch — in the tiny towns along State Route 375.

Last June, Allie Leepson and Jesse McClary drove the 98-mile corridor, documenting alien attractions in small communities like Rachel — the closest town to Area 51.

This Iconic Flight Snack Has Been Around Since the 1980s — and It's Still the Best Treat in the Sky

The Biscoff is a small rectangular cookie with a satisfying, caramelized crunch. But it's more than mere confection. It's actually a reliable predictor of how often you park yourself on a plane. If you're seldom to be seen in the sky, you'd be forgiven for your unfamiliarity with the Belgian snack food. If you're a frequent flier, however, it's more ubiquitous than an Oreo. So, here's some food for thought: How did this one sweet biscuit so successfully associate itself with air travel?
