When top toques like Daniel Boulud, José Andrés, John Besh and Michael Chiarello get, erm, late night cravings, they don't go scrambling for the pots, pans and sous vide machine.
We asked a slew of our favorite chefs and food celebrities, "Not that you'd have any practical experience with this, but what's the best food for when you've got the munchies?" They theorized as best they could.
Okay. My muchie choice is way different than those stated. Perhaps I would be kicked out of the stoner's union for this, but I love steamed broccoli when I am in that all too common state of mind
Anything that is served by naked alter boys.
Gross. But funny.
Zapps potato chips - all favors. Please send me some. Haven't had any since moving to CO from Louisiana!
Two words: mail order.
Duh! When I'm in NOLA – First stop is Winn Dixie for some Zapp's! Got so addicted to the new smoky BBQ rib flavor during Mardi Gras – when we got back to Denver we ordered a box! About 24$ for 8 medium sized bags. Do it!!!!
Flamin' Hot Lays when I can find them. I usually have to order them online.
French onion dip with Ruffles, but the Sealtest brand French Onion Dip I used to love as a kid isn't sold around here anymore, so I have to make my own.
Andy Capp's Hot Fries are good.
SmartFood White Cheddar Popcorn is awesome.
Herr's Hot Sauce Flavored Chips are really good.
Cool Ranch Doritos are an old favorite.
I really love salty, crunchy snacks most of the time, but I sure could go for some good chocolate ice cream right now.
Cheddar cheese popcorn sprinkled with Creole seasoning. Watch out, you cant stop munching till it's ALL GONE.
Graeters chocolate rasberry ice cream
After I light up a joint I don't care what I eat!
Ben & Jerry Chubby Hubby ice cream – with the pretzels in it. Ahhhh.
I dream for the days when I can find this. I'm out in the boonies on the big island and now I want some, Damn IT!!
Lemon and Gingersnap Ice Cream from Trader Joe's!
Reblogged this on Let's Eat! and commented:

French fries (double fried)
Peanut Butter and Pretzels
Over the top cheesy nachos
KFC sauceless hot wings bone in
Cream cheese and grape jelly on Ritz crackers
.....some sour cream and onion chips with some dip, man, some beef jerky, some peanut butter. Get some Häagen-Dazs ice cream bars, a whole lot, make sure chocolate, gotta have chocolate, man. Some popcorn, red popcorn, graham crackers, graham crackers with marshmallows, the little marshmallows and little chocolate bars and we can make s'mores, man. Also, celery, grape jelly, Cap'n Crunch with the little Crunch berries, pizzas. We need two big pizzas, man, everything on 'em, with water, whole lotta water, and Funyons.
Dang right, man.
is that called the "420" munchies?
lol "That's It?" – half baked has some amazing one liners. "Doctor says i need a backeotomy!"
Oh. my mouth is dry... more water, please.
Can you pick me up a box of....what was that stuff we used to eat all the time back in the day?
if i'm not back in 10 minutes, call the police.
If you're not back in 20 minutes, we're calling Dominoes!
Hehe – I'm more of a Doritos kind of girl myself
To understand what happened to Killer, first you have to know who Killer WAS, man...
Abba Zabba, you my only friend!
By strange coincidence, this article–with the word "munchies" in the title was posted on 4/20. Hmm...
i think the best way to roll depends on the setting. morning after a long night, wake and bake? then i say go for made from scratch falp jacks with butter and honey, maybe some eggs and your fave breakfast meat (or near emat for our veggie/vegan friends) – hard to beat a good sandwich in the middle of the day, and then anything after about 5pm i go comfort food all the way, chicken pot pie, dumpling soup, a hearty stew, anything that will do you right and keep the chill alive.
Ha. Wake 'n' bake.
Slim Jims – need i say more?
Slim Jim's what?
Lay's Lightly Salted potato chips. They are best when the bag is first opened. There is nothing like the first chip out of the chip bag. Cheese and crackers or popcorn are also very satisfying.
Anything salty and crunchy. I love cashews! Either that or Reese's PB cups. Mmmm!
Pork Rinds. For The Win. Hot.
Tea. Earl Grey. Hot.
Actually I like black and orange pekoe.
So mainstream, I know.
fritos lays honey barbeque fritos twists, you cant just eat one bag of thoses mofos
Or the Flamin' Hot ones. MMmmm. Then I found out they're 1000% of my daily fat intake. Immediate cut back.
My bad, I meant Cheetos.
It ain't easy being Cheesey.
fritos lays honey barbeque twists you cant just eat one bag of those motha fukas
Salt and vinegar chips all the way, especially if it's malted vinegar. French fries and ketchup. Pickles. Hot dogs loaded with ketchup and mustard. Fried spring rolls.
...I promise I'm healthy...
Seriously though, I don't snack very often.
Screamin' Yellow Zonkers-at least two boxes.
Is that what you scream before you take that big leap off the deck when you're nekkid grillin'?
Hope he doesn't confuse them with his boxes of little blue pills.
I used to LOVE Zonkers but I didn't think they make those anymore. Do they?
After Conagra purchased Lincoln Foods...they discontinued Screaming Yellow Zonkers--Sorry Bastards.
Oooo. I like that you can vote for more than one. Thank you.
Satisfying munchies for me are salty, crunchy and/or spicy foods.
