The Best Snacks to Eat While Watching Anime
The Best Snacks to Eat While Watching Anime
I don’t know about you, but getting ready for a binge watching session is one of the best feelings on the planet.
Maybe it’s a rainy day, or you just don’t feel like socializing. You plop yourself down with a nice warm blanket. Close the curtains… and now you’re ready.
You still have to pick some food! Nothing goes together better than anime and snacks. I’m pretty sure that was written in history books across the globe.
But what are you in the mood for? There’s just so many damn options. And having too many options, is kind of like having no options at all.
But don’t worry, I got your back. Here are some of the best foods to eat while getting ready for your favorite anime!
Why Pringles you may ask! Shut up that’s why.
Just kidding lol.
Pringles are the best because they aren’t super greasy like other chips. This means you won’t get your remote all slimy and disgusting. Plus they’re a lot less messy because they don’t really crumble as much as regular potato chips. And if they do, they at least won’t get grease everywhere.
19: Pizza Rolls
They’re cheap as shit and easy to make. And who doesn’t like pizza? Just pop a plate of these bad boys in the microwave and you’re good to go in 2 minutes. No hassle. No Fuss. Anything more is just figure skating.
If you haven’t had Pocky yet you’re missing out BIG time. You can sometimes find them in the regular grocery store, but if not they are DEFINITELY at any “Asian” grocery store you can find. And if not, they’ll be on amazon.
The reason Pocky is so great is because they’re not super filling. Which means you get the nice “sweet tooth” kind of snack without feeling bloated and disgusting.
Which of course means you can eat like 200 of them and feel fine….
17: Microwave Popcorn
I have been on a HUGE popcorn kick lately. I found these little flavor shakers in the popcorn isle. They make your popcorn taste like white chedder cheese, or ranch… or pretty much every other good flavor you can think of.
Popcorn is awesome because if you get the “light butter” version and ENTIRE BAG is only 200 calories. And a giant bag too, not those worthless mini bags that have like one handful.
Oh yeah, those flavor shakers are 0 calories as well. So go to town.
16: YAN YAN
This is another snack you can grab at an Asian grocery store. Remember Dunkaroos?
It’s basically that but WAY BETTER.
They’re biscuits are basically the same taste as Dunkaroos, but in stick form. Meaning you don’t get the cream all over your fingers. Highly recommend.
15: Jalapeno Poppers
A personal favorite of mine. Think a mozzarella stick but with spicy goodness inside. They come in either cream cheese filled or nacho cheese filled. I HIGHLY recommend the nacho cheese. But that’s probably cuz I hate cream cheese.
14: Kasugai Roaster Green Peas
Same thing as Wasabi Peas ( you can get regular wasabi peas from most grocery stores).
I know what you’re thinking. “Ew Peas??? GROSS”.
They don’t taste like peas and they’re also not soft and mooshy. Its more like real spicy miniature potato chips. They’re crunchy and slightly sweet, with a wonderful salty taste mixed in.
Why? Theyre salty AF. I love pretzels. They’re super cheap, low in calories and really salty. Plus you can do the weird thing where you try to eat around the outside of the pretzel without breaking it in half. Don’t lie to me… I know you do it.
13: Dino Nuggets
Enough said. Just get them
12: Nutter Butters
I freakin love peanut butter. Honestly I just threw this in here because I have a box in my cabinet and I’ve been thinking about eating them since I woke up.
11: Jelly Beans
JELLY BELLY ONLY!!! Why?
Because there are a bunch of flavors and if you eat them one at a time and try to “guess the flavor” it will extend how long you get to eat them for. If you get regular jellybeans I know you’re just gonna shovel them into your mouth like a gremlin. And then they’re gone in like 6 seconds.
10: Hello Panda!
Another great Asian store treat. Also if there are any “Five Below” stores near you they always have them for some reason.
These are also similar to Dunkaroos, but instead of dipping them in the cream, the’yre prefilled. Like gushers.
That means no mess!
I mean you can stick them on your fingers… Do I really need to explain further?
This is about as “anime” as you can get. Now I know that “cup of ramen” for $0.30 isn’t the same as “real” ramen. But who gives a shit. You can eat like 3 of them for less than a dollar and it taste fine. Who doesn’t want to slurp noodles.
7: Arizona Ice Tea
Okay this one isn’t a food. But Arizona tea is the best beverage to wash away those salty snacks. There are so many flavors, and the cans are HUGE. So while you’re picking out your snacks make sure you grab a couple.
Okay I know I promised I wouldn’t include stuff that makes your hands messy. I lied. But I promise this is the only one I’ll include.
Taki’s are so damn good because theyre hard and crunchy, and don’t make a mess like most chips. Plus they’re really spicy no matter which flavor you get. Most underrated “chip” by far.
I haven’t discovered these until like a year ago. Its kind of like eating a freshly baked waffle cone. You know the kind you get from a homemade ice cream shop?
Plus they have some kind of cream filling that’s delicious.
4: Cookie Crisp Cereal
Not any cereal. SPECIFICIALLY cookie crisp. Why?
Because it’s delicious. Don’t question the cookie crisp. Just bring the whole box to your room with ONE bowl of milk and keep refilling it till its gone. Then you get the added bonus of chocolate milk when you’re done.
3: Chex Mix
This is an easy one. It’s like having a little bit of everything in one bowl. Pretzels, Bagel chips, those weird cracker thingies that don’t have a name, and chex.
2: Smiley Face French Fries
All the deliciousness of French fries without being super greasy. Can you really ask for anything more? Perfect to pair with chicken nuggets.
1: Hardboiled eggs
Honestly I ran out of snacks to list. But I just had hardboiled eggs for lunch and I forgot how awesome they are. Also I lied about saying nothing else that’s messy. Because I have dried egg yolk all over my shirt.
I’m not gonna clean it either. I’m just gonna stand up after finishing writing this and do that weird dance thing to shake all the yolk off. Then I’m gonna leave it there and let my dog eat it.
