So I scoured the earth (actually just a single Facebook group) in search of peoples favorite gaming foods. I figure if we are going to sit on couches, computer chairs, stools, boxes, other people to play a game then we are most likely going to have some type of snack or food, or want some type of snack or food beside us when we fall head first deep into a long gaming session. During my search I came across a lot of different foods and a lot of different people, Our first food how ever was one that stretched across my entire search and kept coming up no matter who I asked.
1. Pizza Rolls
This delicious and easy to make snack is one for every one, If you like pizza and you like that pizza rolled up into bit size pieces then this is the best option for your gamer cravings. There is nothing like that feeling when you bite into a hot pizza roll and the lava hot sauce burns half your tongue and a quarter of your side jaw while your steadily trying to keep your score, kill streak or team above average.
Strengths: cheese, sauce, it’s pizza, it can wipe off your hands or fingers in enough time to grab the controller before the next round or level starts. Microwavable.
Weaknesses: May have to share with friends or girl/boy friend, they run out, can be really hot.
2. Potato Chips
I mean they are light and salty, no salted or Bar b q, sour cream and onion or 546, 000 other flavors, shapes, sizes and anything else you can think of. Of course they are number 2 on the list. Nothing compares to a match starting and having to wipe greasy salt fingers on your jeans or shorts to grab your controller and leave that bit of slick residue on it. Giving us excuses for losing until that slim film of grease wears off the controller.
Strengths: delicious, crunchy, satisfying, conveniently able to sit anywhere due to the container it is in, if it spills most animals can clean it up for you.
Weaknesses: can be super greasy, everyone wants a “couple”, crunchy( I mean sometimes you wanna sneak munch)
I mean, who doesn’t love tons of sugar? Especially when it gets you a sugar high and adrenaline rush that will keep you in the game for hours. Whether it is chocolates like MnMs, or gooey treats like gummi bears or jelly beans. we can all understand that sweet satisfying taste of sugary delight in between rounds of being frozen by Mei or sniped in C.O.D
Strengths: sugar, artificial energy, taste, small and easy to eat, someone always has some type of candy
Weaknesses: chocolate fingers, people offering pocket candy, sugar high wearing off, you being the person who always has some type of candy for people to ask for
4. Soft Drinks
I mean, we have not been able to escape this soft drink. Whether you prefer a Monster energy drink or some other deeply caffeinated beverage, you can rest assured that someone in your match, on your team, trying to steal your flag has a soft drink within their vicinity.Strengths: caffeine, re-hydrates(kinda), tastes pretty good.Weaknesses: caffeine(I mean we have to sleep sometime right), sometimes it doesn’t taste good.
Strengths: caffeine, re-hydrates(kinda), tastes pretty good.
Weaknesses: caffeine(I mean we have to sleep sometime right), sometimes it doesn’t taste good.
5. White Castle Sliders
I mean, this came up a lot upon our investigation into the food of champions(or just regular people playing video games, man). I mean what is better then mini hamburgers that you can toss in a microwave to heat up!!.
Strengths: their hamburgers, cheese, tasty, quick to make, wont make a big mess when you spill it,
Did I say they tasted good?
Weaknesses: small, sometimes comes with onions, they smell good so it could be game distracting,
Doesn’t taste the best when they get cold.
