10 Snacks + TV Shows Pairings for Your Netflix + Hulu Binge Sessions

Oh, streaming services. What did we ever do without them? Not only can we watch all of our favorite shows at once, but we can also revisit those that aren’t on the air anymore and it is glorious.

Variety recently released a survey that stated the average Netflix user watches about “two hours and 10 minutes” of a show per sitting. The real question is, what are you eating with those binge-worthy shows?

We’ve compiled a list of our favorite shows available for streaming to binge and the snacks that just seem the most fitting to go with them. Enjoy!

1. Friends + Sandwiches

If you love Friends, this selection is no surprise. Joey’s love for sandwiches is one of his few character traits that we get to see, rivaled only by “How you doin’?”

The recipe for a real Italian deli-style sandwich should last you through about six episodes of the show.

Now, before this gets out of hand, yes – waffles alone are a good choice and whipped cream is the universal way to Leslie Knope-ify any dessert (or breakfast or coffee). So why not combine both?

While going with a glue-filled paper bag and cat food were obvious choices here, we decided to go with something a little more … delectable.

8. Gilmore Girls + Pancakes and Sausage on a Stick (And Coffee, Of Course)

While you can’t go wrong with just any junk food watching the Gilmores completely annihilate pizza and burritos and Chinese food, there was one scenario that we felt was best.

That’s right – pancakes and sausage on a stick are what we think the Gilmores would eat for breakfast because not only did Rory even say it once, but it also pairs crazy well with coffee. Which is a must-have.

9. Community + Cookie Cake

Remember when Trey just couldn’t stop eating that 60-inch cookie cake? Let this be a lesson for your Netflix binge-watching session.

Eleven seriously noms those leftover French fries in one of the first scenes where we meet her, so it seemed only fitting that these loaded fries are on the menu.

Waffles were too easy of choice for this one and besides, you’ll need some serious carbohydrates if you’re going to try to solve the mystery from start to finish.
