Never Know What To Watch When You Netflix + Chill? We Chose For You!
I would be lying if I said there was never a night when I would rather stay in, watch Netflix and chill and stuff my face with comfort food instead of going out. Sometimes, a night in with Netflix and munchies is all a girl needs and there’s no reason to be ashamed of that.
Netflix + Chill has quickly become the internet’s new term to define the act of inviting someone over to watch “Netflix + chill,” but instead, just having sex with Netflix on in the background. While this is nothing to be ashamed of, neither is having a night of actually watching Netflix and chilling – with yourself, with your friends or with your bae. And the act of literally watching Netflix while chilling is almost always even better with food. Because honestly, food is
better than just as good as sex. Whether or not you choose to add sexytime into the mix, here is your ultimate guide of what movies to watch on Netflix now and their perfect snack pairings.
Breakfast at Tiffany’s + a beautiful box of donuts
Curl up to the classic New York City story of the lovely but lost socialite Holly Golightly and watch Audrey Hepburn munch on danish and coffee with nothing other than a box of donuts. Recommended: Doughnut Plant in New York City offers items like pecan praline beignets, matcha green tea cake donuts and peanut butter and jelly filled square donuts. Sploosh.
Annie Hall + an entire pizza pie
Nothing says New York City more than Woody Allen, Annie Hall and pizza. Get yourself an entire pie from your favorite local pizza shop. Recommended: Joe’s Pizza in NYC or anywhere that will deliver a plain pie to your bed that isn’t Pizza Hut.
13 Going on 30 + sugary candy
While Jennifer Garner and Mark Ruffalo ignite their childhood love over Razzles candy in this classic time travel tale, ignite yours with your favorite childhood candy because there is a 0% chance you won’t love it. Recommended: Hit up the nearest drugstore and pick up Sour Patch Kids, gummy worms and Skittles.
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off + kettle corn
Enjoy your day (or night) off with the classic all-American high school flick Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with a classic all-American snack: kettle corn. Fun fact: Kettle corn was first introduced in the U.S. in Pennsylvania during the 18th century. Be as American as Ferris is while he, Cameron and Sloane Peterson cut class, go to a baseball game, perform in a parade, crash a car, and swindle their way through high school. Recommended: Popcorn, Indiana kettle corn, a.k.a. that one bag of kettle corn that is always at your local deli calling your name.
Clueless + freshly baked chocolate chip cookies
“Whenever a boy comes, you should always have something baking.” While Cher’s heart is in the right place, her skills in the kitchen are not. On the other hand, if you are capable in the kitchen, bake cookies for yourself before watching this classic valley girl comedy. Otherwise, have someone else do it for you because you definitely don’t need to bake to make a boy come. Recommended: Insomnia Cookies chocolate chunk, double chocolate chunk, triple chocolate chunk, etc.
Mean Girls + homemade cheese fries
“Is butter a carb?” Fortunately not but fries are and the only thing better than being able to stream Mean Girls at anytime on Netflix is probably cheese fries. Before you crave them mid-watch, make like Regina George and just get yourself some cheese fries before you turn it on. Just remember that you probably won’t lose three pounds. Recommended: It’s actually much easier to make cheese fries than you think thanks to Rachael Ray.
Hopefully I’ve convinced you that it’s OK to have a Netflix + Chill date with yourself, but remember it’s also OK to allow your Tinder date, significant other, roommate, cat, etc. to join you in the fun. Eat responsibly.
