Here’s my pick
Pop corn with a glass of Lemonade or water.
It’s not greasy and the crumbs won’t get on your controller/keyboard.
The lemonade is very refreshing and washes down the Pop corn.

I’d like to know yours

Water with lemon, coffee or tea for me. I've always just took a break to go eat XD

>Also, is it bad that I eat salt?

Objectively, yes, because that'll likely have a very negative effect on your blood pressure if that's a regular thing.

"Also, is it bad that I eat salt?" - Yes, from both a health and a "wot" perspective 😉

+1 for popcorn, although I'm bad about eating greasy stuff while gaming, my pads must hate me

When I play guitar hero sessions with my sister, we have this ritual where we go get a bag of sun chips so by the time we get to the hard songs, our fingers are all greased up and move easily from one color to the next.

So I suppose it depends on your game and individual needs 🙂

just as a counter-question:
what would be the most easy fat-maker to eat while gaming? I'm thin as a stick (probably thinner than Pac) and want to add some tons.

but they'd require me to drive 40mins with my bike to get them,
which would kill the "get fat part" and replace it with "get fit"

You could always get a warmer and stockpile your nuggies for safe keeping

I don't think 40 minutes of biking would offset a few bags of mcnuggets anyway, so operation get chunky is still intact.

If you mean regular gaming, I just hit pause and grab anything food related OpieOP

But if you mean speedgaming, I'm partial to these fruit gummies. https://d2ln0cvn4pv5w2.cloudfront.net/unsafe/1024x800/filters:quality(100):max_bytes(200000):fill(white)/http://dcmzfk78s4reh.cloudfront.net/1498799219221.jpg They taste good and they're bite-size so I can eat a few at a time.

They made fizzy wine gums and I'm hooked on the red ones. Wake me up a bit during cutscenes.

This is a good question actually, because the speedgame I was the most passionate about so far is over 7 hours and you really get hungry, especially if it takes another hour or two to get an attempt going.

I ate pretty much everything so far during those runs.
Fish Sticks turned out to be quite comfortable. You can even cut them into pieces with just a fork and eat such a piece rather quickly, even during a 2 secs loading screen.

If I am good on money I just order Pizza, but bear in mind to choose one which hasn't too many "soft" ingredients on it because you don't want to mess with a pizza slice which has fallen into a dozen pieces during a run.

For drinks, energy drinks are needed to stay alert. Coffee is no good idea, because it will make you need to pee too early.

For sweets, everything Haribo created is a good idea.
Chocolate etc. Probably not such a good idea.
