To be honest, if I'm really stuck (i.e. really hungry, really short on time, only option is a convenience store or vending machine), I get a candy bar with a lot of nuts (Snickers or PayDay).
If you look at the nutrition, a candy bar isn't a whole lot different than a Cliff Bar or Power Bar or whatever, just has a little more sugar. Almost all typical candy bars are gluten free or close to it (probably no actual gluten-containing ingredients but probably some cross-contamination for the gluten-sensitive), which to me is the most important Paleo-ism.
Nuts are a Paleo cheat, but waaay better than your typical candy which is more sugar, stabilizers, colorings, and bad oils than anything else, so it's all relative. In the spectrum of cheats, I'd rather have a little sugar instead of a big pile of either gluten or hydrogenated fats.
I'd much rather just skip the food and eat some extra steak when I get a chance, but hey life comes at you fast sometimes.
