    Besides eating your opponent's pawns, do you have a favorite snack food to eat during chess?

    I favor BBQ pork with hot mustard...chips with Ranch...marinated artichoke hearts...smoked oysters.

    Now I'm hungry.

    Sorry this isn't a serious topic but my serious button is malfunctioing.

    Sounds delicious...

     

    I like to eat whatever chips- especially 'All Dressed' or 'Sour Cream and Onion' 'Ruffles' chips.

    I know this kid who drinks Pepsi ALL the time. It's kinda gross. It's probably his snack food of choice as well.

    When I'm playing chess I usually stick to healthy stuff like carrot sticks but otherwise pizza and chess is great.

    Or cookies:

    Wouldn't it be enjoyable to play with these and actually eat them with each capture? Smile

    Sometimes I eat cheese, but I'm a little dyslexic.

    I love that image!

    Reminds me of the pancake vs. waffle controvery. With waffles, you'd have to decide which square (dimple) to eat first.

    For chess players, waffles would seem to be a good snack. Pancakes would seem more appropriate to checkers players. They are obviously less evolved...pancakes, I mean.

    Poker players might like Pop-tarts. They have an element of uncertainty and surprise.

    I usually don't snack while I play chess (I do often drink soda while playing though), but I would probably just have chips, or ideally, pizza, if it wasn't a serious game. Pizza and chess go well.

    some beer+ some pizza= some kind of chess

    (depends on the potions)

    Depends on the time controls:

    Blitz - Fritos - handful per move

    Rapid - water (preferably chlorinated) and chocolate

    Long - pu-ehr, oolong, or some similar Chinese herbal tea plus a pastrami sandwich if hungry

    Correspondence - pizza and chlorinated water

    If any of the above foods cannot be obtained, substitute with copper.
