Binging shows on Netflix is great, no argument here, but binging on snacks while you watch isn’t the best. Especially afterwards when you realize some of the damage you’ve done to the snack cupboard. Check out a few tasty alternatives to chips, cookies, and ice cream.
Snack 1 - Veggies and Beet Hummus
Great to snack on while binging 90s sitcoms like Friends, Seinfeld, Full House, Fresh Prince, Will & Grace.
You’ll be doubled over with these half-hour laughs so make something fresh and crunchy that you can nosh between episodes. Try our recipe here!
Snack 2 - SmartSweets
Great to snack on while binging tear-jerking teen dramas like Dawson’s Creek, One Tree Hill, My SoCalled Life, Party of Five.
You’ll be fighting back the emotions for an hour or so each episode, so go with something a little sweet, but with less sugar so you can feel better about treating your sweet tooth. Learn more about SmartSweets here!
Snack 3 - Popcorn
A classic movie snack, popcorn is great to snack on while binging nerdy sci-fi shows like Firefly, Star Trek The Next Generation, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The X-Files.
You might be rewinding and re-watching certain parts to make sure you catch all the witty dialogue and nerdy plot points, so having a snack that allows you to keep one hand on the remote is highly recommended.
