The campaign trail is a long, tough slog over the course of many months. There's a lot of flying back and forth between Washington, D.C., where Joe Biden serves as Vice President, and every swing state in the union. And over those trips, like anyone on a road trip, the VP built up a hefty list of food consumed. To his credit, he still looks as slim as ever. But thanks to press pool reports, there's great opportunity to keep track of these sorts of thing. Which is what the Washington Examiner did by compiling a list of foods that Biden consumed on the trail, a list that showed the VP has a weakness for ice cream.

June 26, Dubuque, Iowa: Three quarts of ice cream and several dozen cookies at Hy-Vee grocery (note: Biden did not eat all of this himself)

June 26, Manchester, Iowa: Strawberry ice cream on a sugar cone at Widner Drug and Gift Shop

Aug. 14, Stuart, Va.: Hot dog and Coke at The Coffee Break Cafe

Aug. 14, Floyd, Va.: Vanilla milkshake at Floyd Country Store

Here's to four more years of milkshakes and trucker lap sits for Biden.
