Default Best mid-painting snack?

What snack is best to go with your cuppa mid-paint? I've taken to Waitrose Caramel Dipping Sauce with a pack of Digestives, and either Lavazza coffee or Twinings Breakfast Tea.

Your choice?

Guinness, Spitfire, Hobgoblin, Makers Mark, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey, Johnny Walker, J&B, Chianti, Borolo, Rioja...

I think we can see where this is going.

Consider me impressed.

Not all at the same time, I have limits!

I normally have a glass or two while painting but avoid eating as I always end up with greasy fingers and nothing screws a paint job quicker than a greasy finger print.

That's why I tend to go for drier things, either a little tub of cranberries/raisins or biscuits most often; I do Dark Angels, and what colour shows up stains more than white?

Tomato soup and a pile of saltines, or sesame crackers topped with cream cheese + olives. Tea to drink.

smoothy with a straw

that way: you don't have to touch the item your eating with nasty, painty, fingers

not that i'm actually doing any paint, seriously, this has to be the slowest space marine force every put together.

note: if you see me giving tactical advice: just assume i have a internet tab open to 1d4 chan and I'm summarizing off of that.

Mid painting i dont normally eat much, but if i do it would proably be mints and water. Have to make sure its on the different side to my paint pot though GW paint doesnt taste to good ive found. Also in the past i using chillis to mantain alertness (i was out of coffee) and found that that worked well also didnt leave greesy finger prints.

Can of Coke Zero, and some of my kids recess snacks, like a couple of Gold Fish crackers or a Rice Crispy Square. Most often, just the can of Coke.
