Top 5 Pop Culture Snacks at Comic-Con 2012
Because it's like Wimbledon for weird shit, because man cannot subsist on breakfast burritos alone, because there's three months allowance burning holes in pockets, and because shuffling laps around the San Diego convention center in an homemade Iron Man suit will work up a mighty appetite (even if it is made out of leftover paper towel rolls), San Diego Comic-Con showcased a new batch of nerd snacks to feed the light-sabered masses this past weekend. Here are our Top 5 Pop Culture Snacks from SDCC 2012.
Joe Peeler Tentacle Grape Soda
5. True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps:
Emma Courtland True Blood Cookbook
Available now for pre-order, the official True Blood cookbook includes 85 recipes inspired by the show. Learn to fix up summuh Gran's fried chicken, Terry's chili and Arlene's bloody marys. There's no recipe for Sookie's Cookies though, which seems like a missed opportunity. Wouldn't True Blood parties be better if fans had an occasion to yell "Cookeh is mahn!"?
4. Stay Puft Marshmallows:
Emma Courtland Stay Puft Marshmallows
Should one eat licensed movie collectables? If every box purchased brings us closer to Ghostbusters III -- even in a roundabout way -- one should. Each 5 ounce box of Stay Puft Marshmallows contains about 45 caffeinated mini-marshmallows. CAFFEINATED. MARSHMALLOWS.
3. D & D roller, sucker:
Emma Courtland D & D lollipop
This D20 lollipop -- icosahedron, in l33t -- is critical hit at any RPG gathering. A full 2 inches of cherry-flavored dungeon sucker for +1 Nerd Envy. [Disclaimer: D&D spells do not extend to the real world, will not make you popular.]
