Anyone with experience in bear-populated areas, what's the best way to store food when your on the move with a car? Are some foods better than others? Wondering specifically about black bears in Northern California, but would things be different if you were in say Montana around the grizzlies?

This question came from our site for road warriors and seasoned travelers.
I caution against storing the food in your car. Bears have been known to do serious damage to a car trying to get in. Hence
I have never found any research recommending one food over another for bear territory. Bears are prone to investigate anything that might be food so it's unlikely you can avoid bears purely by food choice.
