What are your must-have items when traveling?

Hudson News, the ubiquitous airport convenience store, has shared the top 10 items travelers buy from their stores in airports around the world.

The list, while unsurprising, is a testament to the health-concious priorities of jetsetters—as well as their apparent fear of dehydration.

Did any of your travel essentials make the list?

  1. Dasani bottled water (20 oz)
  2. Glaceau Smartwater (20 oz)
  3. Large Dasani (one liter)
  4. Glaceau Smartwater (one liter)
  5. Glaceau Smartwater (23.8 oz)
  6. Diet Coke (20 oz)
  7. Coca-Cola (20 oz)
  8. M&M Peanut (king-size)
  9. Coca-Cola Zero (20 oz)
  10. The Wall Street Journal

Hydration needs aside, Hudson News also shared the magazines and books of choice: US Weekly, In Touch, The Economist, Life & Star, Star, Vanity Fair, Ok, Tina Fey's “Bossypants,” Chris Kyle's “American Sniper,” and Malcolm Gladwell's “David and Goliath.”

Another thing it proves: The TSA is a marketing mastermind. Restrictions on liquids have shaped airport consumerism.
