Yeah, you read it right. Amazon has a snack store…. for gamers. Well, if the stigma that gamers are lazy slobs who sit around eating snacks and playing video games indoors all day wasn’t enough from the media, now retailers are getting in on actually making it a reality.
No more driving, walking, or riding your bike to your local store for some goodies for your gaming sessions! Now, with a few clicks of a mouse, taps on a tablet, or push of a button, you can get your snacks delivered to your doorstep from a brand new snack store for gamers on Amazon.com.
“Fuel To Help You Game Better,” is the name of this little section I happened to stumble upon on Amazon’s website. I have to give them props though; The majority of the snacks that I saw when browsing the store happened to be fairly healthy choices. You have your whole grains, baked or air popped chips, low sodium, low fats, organic foods, and more. However, they’re not all healthy and I’m sure anyone who visits this store looking for some munchies while they game will probably gravitate towards those which are not.
You can check out a large selection of snacks from categories as follows:
- Party Mix
- Puffed Snacks
- Trail Mix
- Rice Crackers
- Energy Drinks
Within each category is a decent assortment of foods you can stock up on for those late nights and weekends of gaming.
I thought it was a little amusing that this store exists, but the joke is probably on me because Amazon will likely make quite a bit of money from this idea.
