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?

Sustenance? That’s hard. That’s not part of my snack routine. So definitely a donut. Preferably with creamfilling. That’s a buck, so another dollar for those jerky sticks in a glass jar.

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?

Salt & vinegar chips obviously. I grew up with vinegary foods so naturally my daughter will have similar experiences.

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

I assume I spent a lot of time fighting and training and eating shitty food in high protein but low in taste so i’m thinking steak ribs dripping with korean BBQ sauce, ramen noodles with the PERFECT poached egg, chirashi bowl, a ton of uni, okonomiyaki, ok pretty much everything japanese.

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?

A ton of Doritos, the 3d kind, because I was 10 and 3d Doritos was the shit

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?

Ice cream sandwich. HANDS DOWN – perfect snack for me to weep quietly into the cold, soft, deep, crunchy textures and emotions.
