Eighty-five years ago today, Spam was first introduced to the market. You know – the canned cook pork that rose in popularity during World War II. Say what you will about Spam, it has been around for almost a century and will probably outlive us all. You might be wondering what Spam has to do with a video game and entertainment website, but if there is one thing that goes well with marathon video game sessions or watching your favorite movie or TV show, it is eating a delicious snack. Which begs the question – what is your go-to video game snack?
I’m a bit of a neat freak, so if I am going to sit down for a couple of hours and play video games, my snack of choice has to be something that won’t get my controller dirty. Growing up, I would go to Blockbuster or Hollywood Video every Friday night, rent a new game, and get a pack of Twizzlers to fuel my gaming session. Though I haven’t had Twizzlers in almost twenty years, I still have a craving for their waxy goodness on a few summer Friday nights.
These days, I’ll pour myself a rum and coke and maybe some chips, but I’ll always save the chips for a cut scene and wipe my hands thoroughly before playing some more. Don’t I sound like a delight?
