You’re not wrong to question it. Most of these snacks listed below are regular snacks that people who don’t listen to My Chemical Romance and obsess over all things black can love, too.
However, if you really think about it, they are totally punk rock in their own right. If you want to find out more, check out some of the most emo snacks below.
1. Monster cereals
These are the most emo cereals hands down. Whether you are a fan of Boo Berry, Frankenberry or Count Chocula, they are all a perfect way to start your day off spooky.
These little cones look innocent on the surface. But if you put them on your fingertips, you will instantly have witchy claws that show off your dark side. You could also put them on your head to look like devil horns, therefore this makes sense. Next!
3. Pop Rocks
These bright-colored rock candies basically say “Fuck the system.” They rebel against the usual pleasant candy experience and explode in your mouth. They would definitely listen to hardcore music and spike their neon-colored hair up to the sky.
4. Scooby Snacks
Even though this is a fictional snack, there are the fan-favorite Scooby-Doo fruit snacks and those little graham cracker dog bones that basically are the same concept. Scooby-Doo is definitely a spooky show, and the crew feels like one of us. These are obviously our go-to choice to sit on the couch and watch a horror movie to.
5. Anti-love candy hearts
We all know the classic variety of the chalky Valentine’s Day candy, but we also found a website that allows you to make your own custom sayings on them. You can really show your true feelings with candy hearts with sayings such as “Dead inside” or “Get lost” on them, because they’re more our speed.
6. Black licorice
It’s as black as our souls and bitter as our attitudes, which is exactly why it’s meant to be on this list.
7. Candy necklaces
These are like OG chokers that are edible. What could be more emo?
8. Ghost Peeps
These are the only peeps that are emo enough for us to consume. Forget those hot pink birds. Those are meant to be exploded in the microwave.
9. Blk. water
Because even emo people need to stay hydrated, but do it in style.
10. Zebra cakes
This snack reminds us of that Myspace hairstyle that is choppy bleach blonde with black clip-in extensions. People with that hairstyle are the only ones who can truly enjoy these snack cakes in full form.
These are like the emo skaters of snacks. They are edgy because they don’t conform to being a regular fruit snack—they are an entire thing of their own.
