You’re standing outside a 7-11 when the aliens land. They can only survive on Earth for 2 minutes and you only have 2 dollars. What snack do you buy to teach them about humanity and provide sustenance for their long journey home?

A peanut butter cup, for sure. Combining peanut butter and chocolate is proof of our civilization’s ingenuity

You’ve been counting for months and finally your baby daughter has enough teeth to chew a chip. Which chip do you choose to start her human snacking experience?

When introducing anyone to anything you need to keep it simple and make sure the experience is first class. In this situation I would go classic. A Cape Cod chip is probably the perfect chip. Three ingredients: potatoes, oil and salt. Kettle-cooked. Perfect crunch.

You’re a rebel and you’ve just won the war. What do you and your comrades munch on together as a free people?

When celebrating anything you need at least one of the following: Cake or Pizza. If we can’t have both, then always pizza.

You’re 10 years old and you mom has asked you to clean your room one too many times so you’re running away. There’s enough change in your piggy bank and enough space in your bindle to bring one snack into your new life. What do you buy down at the general store?

If I am being practical, then a Snickers bar. I’m not sure if it is a product of effective advertising or actual science, but when I find myself needing to push off a meal and I am near a Duane Reade, I’ll pickup a Snickers bar.

You’re up in the club and you’ve just fallen in love. But in the morning, for reasons you’ll never fully understand, he or she will be gone. What snack will you buy at the corner store before you Uber back to your place? What snack will you pair with the the one that gets away?

Hm… I suppose I would go with fruit, maybe a Pineapple? Something that feels cleansing, plus the vitamin c might help out with that hangover.
