Top Ten: Stoner Foods

So the word on the street is that food tastes better when you're stoned. I'm just guessin' though -- I would never engage in anything illegal like smoking The Pot! Swearsies. I hit up the Internet -- and a few of my favorite potheads -- to bring you this list of Top Ten Stoner Foods. Some of my old smoking buddies research subjects were even high when I interviewed them, which I think lends this blog post a lot of authenticity. Man.

One thing I learned about the topic of stoner foods: People really care about it. There are entire blogs dedicated to stoner foods. And a cookbook, too. There are scads of articles and forums dedicated to the discussion of what foods are the best to eat after marijuana consumption. I even found an article in which the cast of The Big Lebowski talks turkey about the best stoner grub.

The results? A list that includes sweet and salty, healthy and decidedly-less-healthy, hot and cold, fast and slow foods. My stoner buds did share two universal truths with me: 1. Munchies are great, but eating kills your buzz, so catching another in the post-munchie frenzy is always in order. 2. To quote a friend: "Oh man. The thing is ... everything tastes good when you're stoned! Just eat."

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.

It's all about grocery shopping---Raspberries, blackberries, straweberries, pistachios, wasabi peanuts, and dark dark chocolate.  All healthy and will have your taste buds lit up!  I'm salivating now (and packing a bowl)

My most memorable meal when I used to be a stoner was a flour tortilla coated with butter warmed in the microwave and then stuffed with crunchy La Choy Chow Mein noodles. Pure ganja induced bliss at the time.TA

Cold fried chicken, lasagna, red beans and rice, and last-but-not-least, anything, and I mean anything off of a taco truck.

"Dirty" anything from Zilla Street Eats. What doesn't taste better topped with crushed cheetos or cheesy fries?

The Taco Bell meat issue has been laid to rest.  It is seasoned beef.

Bruce, it's a lighthearted joke in a lighthearted article. Get a grip.

I think that's why JItB tacos exist in the first place ^_^

This. Cottonmouth + peanut butter = terrible decision. I mean, unless you enjoy flailing around, tongue out and desperate like a dog that's been fed peanut butter.

Which do you prefer, smoking weed before or after yoga?
