20 Must-Have Snacks for Your Gilmore Girls Revival Binge

Pizza, takeout, and all the sweets—here's everything you need to chow down on during the Gilmore Girls Revival.

All the Coffee

1 / 20


So, it's not a snack, but not mentioning coffee in a Gilmore Girls article is definitely a cardinal sin. Maybe grab some coffee on the way to your premiere party. And if you're not into drinking it black like Lorelai, check out this homemade creamer on Cozycakes Cottage.

Breakfast, lunch, and sometimes dinner, Pop-Tarts are an essential Gilmore staple. Make your own with this recipe from Leanne and Bakes or simply grab a few out of the box if you're in a rush.

Movie nights call for the right snackage and in the Gilmore world that means popcorn. Kick it up a notch and make your own. This recipe from Loaves and Dishes gives you all the tips and tricks you need to make the best homemade popcorn.

If a drive-through taco place doesn't sound appealing—even if Lorelai swears by it—you can still chow down on a more healthy option like this one from Yummy, Healthy, Easy.

Pizza, Pizza, and More Pizza

5 / 20


It's a lifestyle. Simple as that. Cheese, pepperoni, sausage—doesn't matter. You're not a Gilmore if you forget this snack essential. And since you don't have Pete delivering to your door, make it yourself with this recipe from Stick a Fork in It.

Whether you're wishing someone happy birthday or simply crave some marshmallow goodness, these mallomars from Pale Yellow won't disappoint.

Orange Chicken

7 / 20


Sure you could order takeout, but we think there's something sweet and tangy about this orange chicken recipe on Slow Cooker Gourmet. Seriously, you need to try it. And if you feel traitorous to the Gilmore name, serve it in a to-go container.

We are still salty that we don't have Luke's Diner to go for pancakes, but this blueberry delight from King Arthur Flour is a solid alternative. If fruit doesn't excite you, pull a Lorelai and swap berries for M&M's. It's the same thing, right?

Honor the four Thanksgivings episode with these delicious rolls from Saving Room for Dessert. We all know that after you eat deep-fried turkey and Korean, all you want are some buttery carbs.

Rocky Road Cookies

10 / 20


You could grab some rocky road ice cream or you could get creative and test out this cookie recipe from The Colorful Kitchen. Sookie couldn't make em any better.

Burger Sliders

11 / 20


Lorelai taught us a good burger can change your entire mood, so choose wisely. And by wisely we mean these sliders from The Newlyweds Cookbook. They are everything good about burgers, but smaller so you can fill up on other goodies.

Chili Cheese Fries

12 / 20


The Gilmore girls got it right: fries are better when smothered in chili. Create one of their favorite side dishes with this cheesy, meaty recipe on Wholefully.

By the end of the day, doughnuts from shops aren't great. So, since we don't have a Luke, we recommend you make them yourself. AI Made it for You has a great recipe and you can always choose glaze or chocolate. As for us: chocolate. Always.

Red Vines

14 / 20


Another Gilmore staple, no movie is complete without Red Vines, which means you can't watch the revival without them either. Head to the store or have fun making your own with this step-by-step guide from Gluten Free on a Shoestring.

Rum Balls

15 / 20


When you want a shot but there aren't any in sight, turn to rum balls. Men are jerks (as Lorelai would say) so we need booze and chocolate. And these decadent desserts from Nordic Food & Living give us both.

Dessert Sushi

16 / 20


If your boyfriend promised to take you to Japan but got a job in London, bring Japan to you! We doubt we could ever transform our entire homes like Lorelai, but you can definitely make this dessert sushi from Itsy Bitsy Foodies.

Tater Tots

17 / 20


It's dinner time and that means: tater tots. Right? Well for the Gilmore women it does. Instead of popping them in the oven from your freezer, try this recipe from Heather Christo. Sure, it's a little more work, but it definitely pays off.

Mac and Cheese

18 / 20


Sookie loves her mac and cheese, and so does Rory (especially when hungover). So if you're recovering from a fun night or just looking for some comfort food, turn to this recipe from Rachel Cooks. It's so good it will cure anything that ails you.

What do you want for dessert? Pie. What do you want for dinner? Pie. You wanna eat like Lorelai? That's right, pie. Pick up a slice from your favorite bakery or make it yourself with this recipe from Hungry Couple.

Ice Cream

20 / 20


When she isn't eating pizza, you can find Lorelai in the freezer with her other love: ice cream. It's definitely one of her main food groups. If you're feeling very ambitious, try to make it yourself like they did on King Arthur Flour. Or grab a pint of Ben & Jerry's. Doesn't matter to us.
