Food and gaming go together like Mario and Luigi, but knowing which snacks to indulge in is not always easy. Papa John’s offers pizza deliveryat all hours, which is perfect for your late night game binges.

The first rule of thumb for snacking while gaming is to keep your hands clean. What good will your mad skills be with greasy fingers? A good grip on the controller is essential, so avoid foods that will interfere with the session.

It’s also smart to ditch the Cheetos, Doritos and other orange-staining chips. Too many game controllers have lost their lives due to crumbs and cheese dust jamming up the keys and buttons. If you doubt the validity of our claim, hear us out and consider adding these snacks to your stockpile for the next 6-hour gaming session with your friends.

Fruits & Veggies

We know, we know, fresh fruit and vegetables are the last thing you thought would come first on this list. These may be the last thing on your mind when it comes to choosing a delicious snack, but hear us out! There are plenty of fresh foods that are tasty and convenient for hours of mindless snacking. To amp up the taste factor, you can toss in a bowl of ranch. Think of it this way, fresh fruits and vegetables have an insane amount of vitamins.

Taquitos & Quesadillas

When gaming with a group of friends, there are times that bite-sized snacks will not suffice. Taquitos and quesadillas are easy to make and even easier to eat. All you have to do is throw together some cheese and tortillas (or just pop open a box from the grocery store), set up some dipping options like sour cream and salsa, and settle in for a thrilling session of “insert your favorite video game here.”

Pizza

While certain finger foods aren’t ideal for gaming due to the grease factor, Papa John’s pizza is never too greasy thanks to our quality ingredients. Just think, when you order pizza delivery you don’t have to do any work except open your door, open the box and enjoy. This is one of those things that may sound too good to be true, but it is…it is true.

Plus, leftover pizza can be eaten for breakfast lunch or dinner and that gives you the chance to take your gaming skills to a whole new level.
