Netflix and Chew: Best Snacks And Drinks To Go With TV Serials, K-Dramas and Movies In The New Year


For those of us who are stubbornly clinging on to the holiday mood, you may be wondering what to do during the start of 2018. For introverts or people who care more about television characters than their relatives – or the maddening crowd out at town – we’ve lined up the best snack food and drinks to go with your online streams!

So, before your next great Netflix marathon, don’t be forgetting to include the following items during your next grocery run (or delivery order)!

KitKat Bites + Fresh Soya Milk + Scarlet Heart Ryeo

Did you know that eating chocolates mimics the feeling of being in love? This is great for your partner who’s addicted to Korean dramas. Therefore, we recommend grabbing a few packs of KitKat to munch on while reaping all the touchy-feely moments during your private couple’s screening.

Milo Nuggets + Hoop Dreams

Netflix contain a wealth of documentaries that feature some of our favourite sports and athletes. In these films, you may get a rare glimpse into their day in the life and see them beyond the sick plays they make. Pair Hoop Dreams with Milo Nuggets for the best sports viewing experience.

Jules Destrooper Butter Waffles + Stranger Things

Stranger Things is one of the most talked about TV series in recent times. While Eggos have been the top choice for snacks when watching Eleven and the gang resist small town horror, you can substitute these butter waffles to get the same effect.

Pair it with some Nescafe Ipoh White Coffee, you’re probably not going to be sleeping anytime soon.

Kettle Korean Barbecue Potato Chips + A&W Sarsaparilla + Train to Busan

Let’s face it, the K-revolution is here to stay whether we like it or not. What better way to get into the fever than to fight the zombie scare in one of their international blockbusters while munching on Kettle’s Korean Barbecue Potato Chips?

Ruffles Original Potato Chips + Riverdale

Who’s up for a teen classic framed as a murder mystery? Or is it the other way around? With this combo, you won’t only know what the kids are up to these days, but you’ll also get to say hello to your teenage Archie favourites while snacking on another classic.

Sense8 + Twisties Chipster Flaming Hot Barbecue

If you’ve been geeking out to sci-fi films your whole life, then you have to catch Sense8 – one of the most underrated science fiction shows. Let this spicy snack from Twisties keep you company as you keep guessing, keep slapping your friends on the shoulder to make sense of what’s happening on screen.

Noi Purple Potato Sticks + Ribena Blackcurrant + Crazy Ex Girlfriend

Let’s just say we threw everything in with this combo. Purple, potatoes, exes, comedy, romance and a hilarious musical score about a girl who leaves Manhattan to pursue a man. Things don’t go so well for her, but at least the snack tastes crazy good for you.

Meiji Low Fat Yoghurt + All the Marvel Series

If you want to stay up to date with the lesser known characters and outtakes from beyond the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then you better be ready to watch Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Daredevil, Iron Fist and the Defenders. To get you a little closer to your superhero-bod dreams, Meiji’s range of flavored yoghurt may help you finish this massive superhero marathon without gaining any extra pounds.

Tyrrell’s Sea Salt and Black Pepper Hand Cooked English Crisps + Yeo’s Chrysanthemum Tea + The Crown

What’s not to like about English chips (but yes, they’re called ‘crisps’ on that side of the pond) and a look at Queen Elizabeth II’s ascension to power? Did we mention we also get Matt Smith as Prince Philip and the brilliant John Lithgow as Winston Churchill?

Don’t forget to add tea to your afternoon viewing with Yeo’s Chrysanthemum Tea Drink.

We’re quite sure you’ve also made your own snack combos for the shows you’ve watched. Share your recommendations with us!
