The Foods You Should Eat While Reading These Classic Novels

Food is a big part of everyone's lives. You need to eat at least three meals a day just to survive. It can change your mood from a single bite. Personally, I love eating while I'm reading a good book; it just adds to the experience of being sucked into a great story. Here are the perfect snacks to eat while reading some classic novels, to really add that special something to the afternoon with your favorite book.

Pride and Prejudice

Afternoon tea is the perfect accompaniment to this classic Austen novel. The tea and finger sandwiches are perfectly British, formal, and will make you feel like you're at the high society ball getting dissed by Mr. Darcy.


A big bowl of plain, unflavored oatmeal should set you in the mood to be controlled by a totalitarian government.

Moby Dick

What else, but some fried fish?

The Great Gatsby

Deviled eggs were a very popular dish in the 1920s. There's just something about eating these tasty bites that makes you feel as rich and classy as Gatsby.

Jane Eyre

If you've never read this great story, I won't spoil anything for you. However, some sticks and marshmallows might turn out useful for you at some points in the book.

The Catcher in the Rye

Every distraught teenage boy loves some greasy, unhealthy fast food. Cheese fries will take you on Holden's wild night, from delicious goodness to 2 a.m. regret.

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

A swirly rainbow yule log cake has the perfect whimsical essence to accompany Alice into a trip down the rabbit hole.

To Kill a Mockingbird

Twinkies were first released in the 1930s, and they were cheap and easy to pick up from any small store. Tag along with Scout's adventures while munching on what could be one of her go-to snacks.


The trendy black ice cream is just like Frankenstein's monster as created by Mary Shelley. It's a bit scary looking on the outside, but sweet and good on the inside.

The Little Prince

Rainbow funfetti cookies have that sense of childhood wonderment and joy that the Little Prince encapsulates. Scarf them down with a glass of milk as you find your way to B-612.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.

The Mets And Me

They may be the worst sometimes, but this baseball team has given me more than I could ask for.

On September 3rd, 2001, a sea of children littered my home's navy-carpeted den to watch baseball during my dad's 40th birthday extravaganza. A baseball game flickered on the TV, and a red and blue bubble of a scoreboard sat in the bottom right corner of the screen. The New York Mets and the Philadelphia Phillies were in a wild game at Veterans' Stadium. As I, a five-year-old boy with a jumble of curly blonde hair, sat in the back of the kid clump, I wondered which team I should root for. After a long debate with myself, I decided that I should root for the team that's winning (duh). But, as the ninth inning rolled around with the Phils maintaining a 7-5 lead, some magic occurred. The Mets put up five runs in one frame, stunning the Phillie fans in the room and winning the game 10-7.
