Chess snack food?

  • #1

    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.

    ;) Just be sure not to choke on those pawns, now that would be tragic ;)

    OH YEAH-- Can't forget tea... the stuff keeps me awake and improves my playing a lot... also I love the taste of tea with milk and sugar :D

    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

    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.

    chicken! nothing beats chicken.. besides maybe a quhweeeeen

    to the grobe : nice pic, looks delish, I wanna tastle those pieces!!

    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.

    Rum-filled chocolates with an almond latte! (That's what I'm having right nowSmile)

    I just sit by the computer with my big block of butter and eat it.., sometimes i try to put it on lets say... a pencil and eat the pencil with it.. great stuff!

    some beer+ some pizza= some kind of chess

    (depends on the potions)

  • #20

    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.
