Top Ten: Stoner Foods

Page 2 of 2

10. Chinese Take-out

Crab Rangoon, anyone? There is something about the way Chinese take-out combines sweet, savory, and salty that makes stoners swoon. Plus it's cheap, so you have enough left over for more weed.

9. Macaroni & Cheese

For some, a box of Kraft will do; others prefer the homemade version. I suppose your preference depends on a variety of factors, from your ability to stay motivated and productive while high, to the number of ingredients -- including weed, to keep you busy while you cook -- on hand.

8. Chips

No fuss, little muss. Doritos, salt-and-vinegar potato chips, and Harvest Cheddar Sun Chips lend themselves to satisfying over-consumption. Dip optional -- but delicious.

7. Ice cream

My survey cited Ben & Jerry's as the most popular brand, although I suspect native Texans will vote Blue Bell. For my money, I prefer to find Sweet Cream flavored ice cream (not vanilla!) and decorate it pretty with things like peanut butter, Nutella, fresh fruit. I mean, when I'm in the mood for ice cream, that is.

6. Cookies

I was shocked to find that Oreos crushed chocolate chip as the most-cited stoner cookie. One responder with a love for Oreos cited the addition of Nutella to put it over the top; another told me Oreos crushed over ice cream (#7) is the only way to go.
