A rare treat - gaming snacks

Today I found something foreign to these pagan shores, A&W root beer!

When I met James Raggi, we talked a bit about North American longings of ours, and proper root beer was mine. I was very glad to find this at a cafe me and my family visited today. Yes Jim, not only in Helsinki! Aint that grand? One can cost roughly $3!!

This of course makes me think back to what kind of snacks and drinks I've had during game sessions. Root beer, while very tasty, have never been a gaming drink of mine. Coke, Dr Pepper and black tea have been, though. When it comes to eating I have been trying to stay away from anything that can leave greasy spots on my game books.

Fatty snacks and Mountain Dew seem to be the kind of stuff gamers are "supposed to" be stuffing their face with, but I wonder how well that actually reflect reality?

I'm thinking of trying to get hold of a bunch of cans of A&W root beer and bring to my next game sessions, just because it's there!


  1. No root beer in Sweden? That is depressing, although you make up for it by having some of the finest looking females on the planet. Consider it a fair trade. In any case, wow, A&W. Now I wish you could get some of the really good root beer. There are regional microbrews of root beer just like there are of real beer, and some of them are absolutely fantastic. If you ever get a chance to obtain some of them, I highly recommend it.

  2. Everything has to balance out, eh?

    I have tried a bunch of mass market brands of root beer, and somehow A&W just suits me best. Now, I love micro breweries and have tried a few smaller kinds as well, but so far not found one I like as much. Given the opportunity I'll taste them all, though!

    Now I suddenly feel like a Hobgoblin would be the thing for me, though.
