Foods under the Influence

Do you have any favorite foods to eat when your consciousness is altered? (Interpret as you will.) Are there flavors or texture you gravitate to?

Some fun recent food/drink experiences:

Pickled spicy okra (the seed texture is wild)
White chocolate
Thin cantina-style tortilla chips with salsa
Spicy virgin bloody Mary
Lemon tonic water (holy crap, this was intense!)
Chocolate rugelach (so shatteringly crisp)
Claussen pickle juice

I personally crave really spicy, vinegary, and salty foods.


I’m afraid the only craving is a nap! I wouldn’t trust myself to use a knife or torch. Those under the influence days are well behind me.
