When you’re stoned, you get the munchies – or so I’ve heard.
You are chilling with mates, you have just hit peak high and now, the munchies. Even the taste of the blandest of foods is heightened when you’re high, or sometimes creativity takes hold and some, erm, unique food combinations are made under the influence. But what about eating genuinely great food that tastes good at all times?
Whether you’re ready to order or cook up a storm in your kitchen (what stoner doesn’t think they’re Gordon Ramsay every so often) here are some of the BEST – and easiest – stoner munchies ideas:
If you need an immediate sweet fix, get your spoon straight in the jar. If you’ve got a bit more time on your hands, try Nutella on toast, Nutella with cookie dough, on waffles, as a sauce for ice cream or use it as a dip for churros or pretzel sticks! It’s a versatile spread of dreams.
It’s well-known that cereal is a stoner’s number one snack. It’s cheap, quick and tastes even better as the day goes on. Am I right? Granted, the UK’s stoner cereal selection isn’t as good as the US, but our go-to’s are Coco Pops, Krave or Frosties. If you’re across the pond, whip up a bowl of Lucky Charms, Cap’n Crunch or Cinnamon Toast Crunch.
Most people have ramen noodles lying around their kitchen and with very minimal cooking skills; you can take this simple meal and make it something exciting. Let your imagination loose and turn your ramen into something fit a stoned-king by adding hot sauce, chicken, or veggies if need more green.
12. Ice Cream
No introduction necessary. Ice cream is a struggle snack that requires no effort. Ben and Jerry’s is usually the potion of choice, and although this is up to you, you can’t wrong with B & J’s Peanut Butter Cup, Karamel Sutra Core or Half-Baked, when you’re totally baked.
11. A big, hefty sandwich
Take inspiration from Subway on this one. Hefty sandwiches are great because they are interchangeable to your cravings on that specific day, and you can be creative with fillings. Take you preferred roll, baguette or loaf, and fill it with just about anything, chicken, cheese, cold meats, tuna, salad, peanut butter and jam if you want! All we will say is fill it until you can’t fill no more.
10. Mozzarella Sticks
Anybody who’s anybody will know why mozzarella sticks are on the list. The cheesy-treat is an easy snack, yet so, SO delicious. They can be dipped, dunked, shared or made for your indulgence. If you are having a ‘chef’ moment, they are easily made, but if turning an oven on is your level of cooking skill; head to any supermarket.
9. Brownies (with ice cream)
If you need desert to follow your main, there is nothing more indulgent than a brownie. No, not space brownies, but a good old gooey-brownie will solve any sweet cravings you have, have a sugar high with your weed high.
If turning the oven on is a stretch too far today, a Chinese takeaway is the optimum takeaway of choice to satisfy savoury, sweet, sour or salty cravings you have in your stoned-state. Chinese takeaway is zero-fuss, requires very little clean-up, and you will probably have some left for any later highs.
7. Grilled Cheese
Easy enough to make yourself, a good grilled cheese is a substantial snack for the highest of highs. You can add toppings as you wish, or just keep it traditional, stringy, gooey cheese, the options are endless.
6. Crisps – Chips if you’re in America
Crisps are the ultimate snack at any time, especially when you’re stoned. Pringles and Chilli Heatwave Doritos should be the go-to for any UK readers, or if you’re in the US, grab a bag of Cheetos and graze away. If you’re feeling extra fruity, grab yourself a dip!
5. Bacon, Bacon, Bacon
Basically anything involving bacon is highly recommended for a munchies phase. Whether it’s bacon and eggs, bacon sandwich, bacon cheeseburger or a bacon donut, a good crispy piece of bacon ALWAYS hits the spot.
Burritos might be a surprising addition since they require a bit of effort, but every bite is worth the blood, sweat and stoner struggle. They also rank highly because they’re perfect any time of day. Just had a wake and bake session? No problem, have a breakfast burrito! Or are you going later into the night? Great, rustle up a beef brisket burrito!
3. Fried Chicken
Another irresistible finger food is fried chicken. Whether you make your own fried chicken, buy a smokin’ fried chicken burger from a takeaway or a KFC bucket, the crunchy-turned-meaty texture and southern fried tastes will provide the satisfaction you need.
2. Loaded Nachos
Loaded nachos are the perfect mixture of our favourite stoner snack, crisps, but sufficient enough to count as a meal if you load like a pro. You can load nachos with anything, literally, but some classic toppings are: Chilli, chicken, jalapeños, onions, peppers, and cheese, finished with salsa, guac and sour cream dips! Did we also mention how easy it is to load and oven your nachos?
Pizza, in any form. Pizza rolls, pockets, deep pan, stuffed crust or thin and crispy, any pizza is a winner.
The endless combinations of toppings, bases and crusts means the perfect-pizza can be found for everybody; even vegans! Depending on how ‘Jamie Oliver’ you are feeling, you can make a pizza from scratch, shove one in the oven, or have one delivered by a favourite pizza. The list of reasons why pizza is the champion of stoner munchies could go on, so we’ll just leave it there.
