15 ‘Gilmore Girls’-Inspired Snacks And Drinks To Binge On While You Binge-Watch The Revival

Gilmore fans, we’re in the homestretch. By the end of this week, Gilmore Girls: A Year In The Life will finally be on Netflix and we’ll all be bleary-eyed from binge-watching the entire revival in one long sitting. We’ll finally know if Luke and Lorelai get married and if Rory is #TeamLogan or #TeamJess. But, as any true Gilmore loyalist knows, the really important part of a good movie or TV marathon is the food.

Luckily, throughout the show’s 7 seasons, Rory and Lorelai gave us tons of snacking inspiration to help make our revival viewings a success. (Look, there’s even a Gilmore Girls cookbook!) If you’re planning a watch party, or even if you’ll just be hanging out alone in your pajamas with lots and lots of junk, you’ll want to channel their snack wisdom to make sure you’ve got the best possible spread.

Here, 15 Gilmore Girls snacks and drinks that would definitely get the Rory and Lorelai stamp of approval.

1. High Brew’s Double Espresso drinkScreen Shot 2016-11-21 at 10.21.20 AM.png

You could guzzle hot coffee all night, or you can grab a 12-pack of these. It’s a Lorelai-worthy caffeine boost to help you stay alert through your all-night revival binge-watching sesh.

Are you more of a Twizzlers girl? Well, not if you’re spending the evening with Lorelai. If you’re on Team Gilmore, it’s Red Vines all the way.

Is there anything Rory and Lorelai eat more often than Chinese food? You can order out like they would, or you can whip up this at-home version of orange chicken. Don’t forget the chopsticks and takeout containers to make it look and feel like “authentic” Gilmore takeout.

If there’s one thing we learned from the Gilmore women, it’s that boys come and go, but pie is forever. Try this amazing treat that combines three of their favorite things in one dessert: coffee, ice cream, and pie.

You can’t pull a Lorelai and steal a donut from Luke’s, but you can order a big bag and have them sent to your front door, and that’s almost better, right? Right. Lorelai would’ve loved Amazon grocery.

12. Cheese fries

Fries, cheese, bacon—it’s basically an entire dish made of Gilmore Girls food groups. Mrs. Kim once referred to French fries as “the devil’s starchy fingers.” That just makes them even more appealing TBH.

13. Beanitos Mac N’ Cheese chips

These aren’t just cheese puffs. These are mac n’ cheese puffs, and they’re the perfect addition to a Gilmore snack spread. Plus, they’re baked and say they’re a good source of fiber, so even a health nut like Luke would approve of you eating the entire bag.

14. Edible cookie dough

It’s cookie dough you can eat by the spoonful without getting sick! It’s the perfect accompaniment to all of your anxiety about Rory’s love life—and an ode to that scene where Rory lets little sister Gigi lick the beater while baking Christmas cookies with Christopher.

15. Smashmallow snackable marshmallows

These marshmallows come in yummy flavors like espresso bean, root beer float, and strawberries and cream. You could even cover them in chocolate to make your own Lorelai-inspired Mallomars if you want to get really crazy.
