My 7 Favorite 420 Munchies, Ranked
Remember the first time you got the munchies? I was taken completely by surprise and thought it was a mistake, but all I knew was I suddenly felt like a dry bowl of Fruity Pebbles mixed with Ramen Noodles was the invention of the century. Over the years my tastes evolved, and I started pre planning my snacks based on the atmosphere and experience I wanted. So in honor of this 420, let’s get into one of the best, but most underrated parts of being a stoner: the food. There are reasons its so underrated: until recently, pop culture has portrayed stoners as people unsophisticated palates. We’re known for going to White Castle, not Nobu. Indeed no doubt, White Castle is the shit when you’re high A.F. However, with a little forethought, you can leverage your enhanced senses to maximize your munchie experience this smoke season. Read on for my favorite 420 munchies, ranked.
7. Sliced Mango
Biting into a sweet juicy mango is one of the great pleasures in life. The fact that it satisfies my sweet tooth and enhances the high only makes it that much better.
6. Kung Pao Shrimp
You might have heard that broccoli and nuts enhance and extend your high. It’s absolutely true. So why not take advantage of that by ordering a Chinese takeout staple? Kung Pao Shrimp, at least from my local place, has both. If you want to extend your high, and satisfy your hunger, it’s a combo that can’t be beat.
5. Pizza Bagels
Pizza Bagels are the perfect snack when the munchie wave hits. It’s a delicious mess, and somehow it’s even made better by microwaving. How is it? Thats a mystery. However, if you don’t want to wait for a delivery or get too fussy, it’s perfect.
Ok, hear me out before you say “again?” because pizza is one of the best inventions known to man, and it’s a classic for a reason. Bread, cheese, and tomato sauce is an undefeated combination. Now to make it even better, you have to get creative. I love to get a frozen pizza from the grocery store and top it with spinach, shrimp, and crispy bacon, plus some arugula and Chili oil. It makes for an incredibly satisfying. Experience
3. Brownie Sundae
Want to confuse your body? Eat and get high at the same time. Once I put it together that I don’t get hungry when I eat weed brownies (because duh, I’m already full and high) hit me like a ton of bricks. Since then, I make a brownie sundae when I want to have a side of desert with my grass.
2. Mozarella Sticks
Mozzarella sticks are far and away the best appetizer on any menu and I’ll die on that hill. There’s nothing like a crispy on the outside, cheesy on the inside stick dipped in sweet marinara sauce to satisfy your cravings.
1. Eggs Benedict and Bacon
Breakfast for dinner is undefeated, and Eggs Benedict while you are lifted is fucking unbelievable. If you’re a texture person like I am, the hot buttered toast, perfectly poached eggs, and warm, creamy hollandaise sauce is like going to space. Top it off with an abundant portion of crispy bacon and you have the breakfast of champions any time of day. The shit is epic, and versatile. Crab, tofu, chicken, whatever your choice, it all works with the brunch staple.
