5 Fandom Friday: Comfort Foods That Always Make Me Feel Better

This week’s 5 Fandom Friday topic is “Comfort Foods that Always Make Me Feel Better.”  In a surprise to no one, my list includes some of my favorite desserts- cupcakes and ice cream, and my two biggest comfort meal foods- pizza and bagels (but, very importantly, only from New York).  If this were a favorite foods list, sushi would be in there somewhere too.

1) New York Bagels – I remember being in elementary school and counting down the days each week until it would finally be Wednesday and I could finally enjoy a bagel.  I don’t eat them as often as I used to (which is a shame since I’m now living and working in NYC, the bagel capital of the world)

2) Starbucks Zen Tazo Tea – My body basically runs on Zen Tazo tea.  I have about 3-4 20oz cups of it each day at work and sometimes I’ll even spring for an additional cup at night.  I like that the Zen tea isn’t a straight green tea.  It blends lemongrass, and spearmint as well which makes for an irresistible flavor.

3) Ben & Jerry’s Cinnamon Buns or Candy Bar Pie – The Ben & Jerry’s Candy Bar Pie is a recent addition to my list but it is seriously the PERFECT ice cream.  It’s the exact right combination of sweet and salty and I could eat container after container.  I particularly love enjoying it while watching Netflix so it’s kind of a double comfort food.  Cinnamon Buns has always been one of my favorite flavors Ben & Jerry’s consistently produces.  It has cinnamon bun dough chunks, and a cinnamon swirl all mixed in with caramel flavored ice cream.  Delish!

4) Cupcakes – Also living in NYC, I have a pretty wide selection of bakeries to buy cupcakes from when the craving strikes.  If I’m in the mood for something small and sweet I would head to Baked by Melissa for chocolate peanut butter cupcakes.  If I want a flavorful full sized treat, my first instinct is to head to SoHo for Georgetown Cupcakes.  I especially love their Key Lime flavor.  And lastly, if I want a classic vanilla cupcake, I’ll hit up Magnolia for buttercream goodness.

5) New York Pizza – The first thing I do whenever I land home in New York after going on vacation is to make it a priority to eat a slice of pizza, no matter how late or early I arrive.  I made the mistake of ordering pizza in a few other states (the only one that was okay-ish IMO is Chicago), and there’s just nothing that compares.  Andrew and I also have designated Sunday as pizza and video game day so I look forward to it every week!

    OMG, your list just made me ridiculously hungry! I didn’t get to try a cupcake from Magnolia while I was in NYC earlier this year and I’m so bummed! I did have one of their cheesecakes tho :D

  7. Liz tailor says:

    Pizza, pizza!! I love a really good Brooklyn slice when it’s rainy and gross out. And since I grew up in Florida it clearly has nothing to do with nostalgia. It’s like my taste buds always knew I’d belong here one day!

  8. Alice says:

    I do envy you NYCers for your cupcake selection, and lol, your pizza homecoming meal is like my In-n-Out homecoming meal! :)
