Character's Comfort Foods

Think comfort foods. We relate to characters by how they react to hard times. Or maybe even just mildly busy or confused times. Doesn’t matter. A person’s comfort foods tell us something unique, often memorable, about them. Maybe you’re MC will turn to one of these in darker moments:

  • Shoney's Hot Fudge Cake (pictured)

  • Carnival food--funnel cakes, candy apples, pretzels, hot dogs

  • Double Stuffed Oreos

  • Chicken Noodle Soup--it's not just for when you're feeling sick anymore

  • Snickers Bars

  • Grilled Cheese Sandwiches dipped in tomato soup

  • Chocolate Chip Cookies dipped in milk

  • Nachos--the cheesier, the better; the spicier, the better

  • Girl Scout Cookies (Thin Mints are my fav)

  • Sardines on crackers

  • Twinkies (Remember Al Powell in Die Hard?)

  • Ants on a Log

  • McDonald’s Fries with a chocolate shake (A pregnancy fav)

  • Peanut M&M’s

  • Pizza, pizza dipped in Ranch

  • Baklava (I freakin’ love that stuff)

  • Fried Frog Legs (They taste like chicken)

  • Pot Brownies

  • Cream Puffs (You can buy ‘em in bulk at Sam’s, not that I do *wink*)

  • Chocolate covered coffee beans

  • Mac-n-cheese, mac-n-cheese, mac-n-cheese. Yum.

Hungry? Yeah, me too. But no time for food—get writing!
