Today is April 20, otherwise known as “420” or National Weed Day, the annual celebration of everyone’s favorite herb.
Prior to the widespread legalization of the recreational and medicinal use of the plant, 420 was acknowledged with a subtle wink and nod among proud potheads. Now, as the consumption of cannabis becomes more mainstream and less criminalized, consumers are coming together to light one to celebrate their love for Mary Jane. So however you decide to spend your weed day, whether it’s ditching your responsibilities to get high like Afroman or saving a big blunt (or twenty) for an end of the day cypher, it’s important to keep the mood right and the munchies tight.
BallerAlert’s got you covered with a few snacks to cure your cravings and get you through this year’s “weed day.”
1. Cosmic Brownie
Like music, the munchies go hand-and-hand with marijuana. Depending on your craving, this sweet brownie with even sweeter candies inside may do the trick to settle your sweet tooth.
2. Sour Patch Kids
If you can’t decide whether you want to be sour or sweet, a sour patch kid will do the trick.
3. Flaming Hot Cheetos
Flaming hot Cheetos is an all-time favorite munchies snack, the spicy taste combined with the crunchy texture is to die for.
4.Bacon Grilled Cheese
When you are smacked off a good L or two, you start to get creative with your food choice. Throwing in a couple of pieces of bacon in your old fashioned grilled cheese will get your taste buds going.
5.Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich
A mixture of hot and cold is really all that your heart desires after a cypher. Pop a few waffles in the toaster and top them with your favorite ice cream, to make the ultimate ice cream sandwich.
6. Milk and Cookies
Milk and fresh baked cookies is one of the best snacks of all time, and it’s even better when you’re smacked. Whether it is chocolate chip cookies or your favorite sugar cookies, fresh out the oven with a tall glass of milk is one of the best munchies snacks.
7. Rice Crispy Treats
Rice Crispy Treats or Lucky Charms rice crispy treats, whatever your heart desires, either way, stomach will thank you.
8. Half Baked Ice Cream
Ben and Jerry’s hit the nail on the head with this one. When you are high, nothing is more fulfilling with a mixture of textures and flavors in your mouth. The company describes it as “chocolate and vanilla ice creams with fudge brownies and gobs of chocolate chip cookie dough”.
9. Fried Ramen Noodles
If you haven’t tried this yet, you are definitely missing out. All you need is a pot, a pan, some hot sauce and a few onions if you’re fancy. Cook your noodles and simply plop them in a pan to fry them up. Add some sliced onions and a dab of hot sauce for an extra kick and boom, you’ve got a gourmet meal for you and your homies on this lovely 420.
