Video game friendly food

    Fallout 4 launch is just around the corner. Since I probably won't be leaving the house for a month or so after that, I should stock up on supplies.

    Preferred food should be keyboard and mouse friendly: food that can be eaten with one hand, without utensils. I already have some stock of pizza rolls, but I should also get something with more nutrition. Apples? That sounds nutritious, I guess. Apples. And grapes? Grapes might work. Any other ideas?

    Here is my shopping list so far:

    Pizza rolls
    Pepperoni_Pizza_Rolls.jpe

    Apples

    Grapes

    Microwavable, frozen burgers

    Fish sticks

    What will you be eating with Fallout 4?

    Don't forget to stock up on Pringles.

    I plan to buy a CamelBak for games. Left hand on WASD, right hand on mouse, no way to grab a glass.

    Do they have curry pizza rolls ? They're yum!
    You don't need to, but instead you can use a paper or plastic one and hang it in front of your chest with e.g a shoe lace over your neck, then suck the water up with a long straw while still enjoying your games.

    Would not buy. There's no people in it.

    Great suggestions so far everybody!

    I've added a few more things to my Fallout 4 grocery list:

    Bite size* frozen, microwavable breakfast sandwiches

    *(and regular size too [not shown])

    -----------------
    Eggs! Hard-boiled eggs should fit the preferences quite well. Exactly one egg per mouthful. I call them my "mini-nukes."

    (Of course it will take a small stint of time to cook them and remove the shells, but I'll chalk that up to "crafting" experience.)

    -----------------
    Mentats. (After seeing some of the other items on my list, I may need some sort of supplement.)
    Vitamins-Baldness.jpg
    (Or would this be more like Rad-X?)

    -----------------
    Crispy squirrel bits. Not actual squirrel bits, but vegan squirrel bits!
    boca-soy-protein-chikn-141881.jpg

    -----------------
    Bloatfly burrito

    (Can't go wrong with bloatflys.)

    -----------------
    RadAway (Just in case.)

    Either variety should work great once I take the Cannibal perk.

    Sunset Sarsaparilla anyone?

    Tomorrow! I'm still making my way through DA:I. These days games are so buggy at release I like to wait a few patches in it buy.

    I usually munch on trail mix, popcorn or cereal.

    Great ideas there! I'll put them on the list.

    Thanks, but I think I'll skip that idea for myself. It reminds me too much of Sugar Bombs (I don't go near sugar, even if I'm not eating it.)*
    *[Edit: my phobia of being in close proximity to sugar is admittedly an irrational one -- not scientific.]

    There's a quest[/PLAIN] [Broken] in Fallout 3 where you learn that an essential ingredient in Ultrajet, a more powerful version of Jet, is processed Sugar Bombs. It gives me the heebie jeebies just thinking about it.

    I've got a cup of tea and some banana crisps. Nothing more though because Tuesday is a day I actually have to do stuff >:( along with Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Honestly why does the games industry still release on a Tuesday! (Last) Friday would be so much better.

    Hot dogs, donuts, sandwich, all kinds of sweets.

    You forgot to mention the food must also leave behind minimal residue: Cheetos + keyboard = bad times.

    Wrapping anything in a tortilla seems like a great option. Any sauce is contained, you can eat it with one hand with no finger residue, and you can make them as (un-)healthy as you like.
