As a ninja/detective/playboy/contortionist, Batman probably wants to be very careful about the healthiness of the food he eats.  But now that Alfred is gone, it’s likely harder for him to stay healthy, and his late hours probably mean he’s grabbing whatever there is to eat during his cases.  His love of burritos is documented canon, but I wonder if he ever just hits the Kwik-E Mart for a microwave burrito or a bag of gummi worms.  You figure that his hectic schedule could burn off any excess calories from Batman’s favorite snack, even if it’s from a fried twinkie or an Oreo pie or a bag of chocolate-covered coffee beans, leading to today’s hangry query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted” is thinking Fritos, but probably only on cheat days, asking: What would YOU posit is Batman’s favorite snack?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    I’m pretty sure that I’ve seen a comic that profess it to be Hostess Fruit Pies and/or Twinkies. But that was pre-Crisis, so who knows these days?

  2. I too Would go the Twinkie route.
    See subliminal advertising in comics really does work.
    But I can also see that without Alfred around he would forget to eat for days on end.

  3. Real answer, probably one of those disgusting green protein smoothie drinks that sociopath alpha types drink while saying “i only eat to fuel my body.”

    Headcanon, Alfred probably makes a mean macaron when the sidekicks are over, and not even Bruce can resist.
