Gaming is hungry work, my friends. There’s just something about placing the perfect finesse shot into the top corner in FIFA, or slashing Mongol after Mongol in Ghost of Tsushima that makes me crave basically anything I can get my hands on. My go-to is chips and a Kraken Black Spiced Rum Cola.
But see, I’m no pro. So maybe take my go-to gaming snack with a grain of chicken salt.
The pros, on the other hand, are seasoned — they know what’s up when it comes to creating the ultimate gaming snacks. And so, I did what any self-respecting journalist would do — I consulted the wise ones.
Gather round, friends, for I’ve returned with tales of snacks so ultimate, they’ll blow your beautiful little minds.
The Pringles game-changer
“Slide a paper down the inside of a Pringles can. Trust me it will change your life.”
The cupcake sandwich
“This one’s for if you’re the type of person who always makes a mess eating cupcakes. Once I put two cupcakes on top of each other and made like a cupcake sandwich. No mess! And delicious.”
The perfect cake slice. Every time.
“If you use two spatulas, you can make a perfect cut of a cake and take it right out. I never slice cakes with a knife anymore.”
The ultimate next day pizza
“When I want to reheat my pizza from last night’s dinner, I put my pizza slices in the toaster to get that crispy toast on both sides — unbeatable. Make sure you flip the toaster on its side whilst toasting so there is no spillage.”
No more rock-hard ice cream
“I put my ice cream in a zip lock bag in the freezer. It stops the ice cream from going hard, and will prevent all your spoons from bending!”
To-die-for crispy potato perfection
“Crispy potatoes are the easiest and best trick I’ve learned to impress when cooking dinners. Peel and boil your potatoes, then add some olive oil to the pot, and shake them around with the lid on until the outside of the potatoes takes on a creamy, almost mash-like texture. Then simply place them in the oven for 40-60 minutes at 220 degrees, and you’ll have one of the best sides to pair with any meal!”
Pair any of these hacks with a Kraken Black Spiced Rum Premix and you’re bloody golden.
