"What's your sign?" might be a super cheesy pick-up line (and a cringeworthy one at that) but it's also a cool question that teaches us about ourselves. We might laugh when our astrology-loving best friend sees us cleaning her apartment and says to us, "you're such a Virgo" but, hey, she's a got a point. We might not believe every single thing that our sign has to say about us, but we can agree that the major points describe us perfectly.
We should be asking ourselves, "What's your sign... and what snack food does that make you?" Every foodie should be able to make the connection between astrology and the best kind of food that there is, aka snacks. We love snacks and think that if we could just eat them exclusively and forget about that breakfast, lunch, dinner nonsense, the world would be a much better place.
It's time to get serious about snack time. Read on to find out the signs as snacks, plus an epic recipe for each one. Salty, sweet, spicy: all the major food groups (and personality types) are here. What's your sign... and your snack? (It's going to be the new party question and pick-up line for sure).
24 Virgo: Kale Chips
Virgos are neat and tidy, quiet, and a bit reserved. They also have a great work ethic, love to read, and are healthy eaters.
Since they're all about eating foods that will make them feel awesome and are on the healthy side, their snack food would be kale chips.
Kale chips have definitely gotten popular in the past few years, and we can see why. We would all love to eat potato chips all day long, but when you want to give your body some green vegetables, these are the best way to go. They're crispy and salty and crunchy... aka snacktime heaven. (Hopefully our friends or significant others will tell us when we have bits of kale chips stuck in our teeth, though...)
23 Recipe: Sea Salt And Garlic Kale Chips
Calling all Virgos: it's time to make some kale chips and satisfy your hunger, so you need a great recipe. Thankfully, The Busy Baker has a great one for No Fail Sea Salt and Garlic Kale Chips.
These kale chips have only a few ingredients: kale (of course), salt, olive oil, and garlic powder. We'll bake them in a 300-degree oven for less than half an hour. These are an awesome thing to snack on... and chances are, our coworkers, family, or partner will ask us what we're eating. And then they'll want some and be kale chip fans, too.
22 Cancer: Popcorn
Cancer signs are homebodies. While some people get really excited about a night out with a large group of friends or count down the days to a big party for weeks, Cancer signs really just love staying home. (We can all relate, right?!)
What is the snack of choice for a homebody? It's always popcorn. Therefore, the Cancer sign's snack food is definitely popcorn. They love to make a batch with some creative seasonings and curl up on the couch to watch Netflix or a movie. It's what they want to do every single night of the week, but it's particularly satisfying on the weekend.
21 Recipe: Sour Cream And Onion Popcorn
They say that once you pop, you can't stop, and while that might not refer to popcorn per se, it should totally be the tagline for this recipe.
Kitchen Concotions has a recipe for Sour Cream and Onion Popcorn that will absolutely create some homebody movie night magic.
The seasonings are chopped fresh dill, powdered buttermilk, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper, butter, and grated parmesan cheese... aka pieces of heaven. How good does this snack sound?! The popcorn is air popped and won't take long to make, so Cancer signs can rest assured knowing that they can whip up this savory, salty snack and it won't cut into their relaxation time. Phew.
20 Aries: Spicy Chips
Aries signs are passionate and they can also have tempers or can be in a bad mood. It's totally okay to admit this because we all have great things about ourselves and some things that we might want to work on, so every sign is the same in that sense.
What snack food would this sign be? Spicy chips. When it comes to super intense potato snacks, Aries signs don't discriminate and would go for literally any chip that is spicy, so that could be super hot Doritos, barbecue-flavored potato chips, or even tortilla chips with some spice on them.
19 Recipe: Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Chips
Noming Thru Life has got Aries signs covered with these Spicy Baked Sweet Potato Chips.
First of all, it's super exciting to make our own chips, so let's just get that out of the way first. If we've ever thought that it would be cool to do this, then it's time to get into the kitchen and make it happen. Less talking, more sweet potato chip making action.
Aries signs will love the chipotle powder in this recipe. If they dump tons of the spice on the sweet potato before putting it in the oven, hey, they're just following their hearts.
18 Aquarius: Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips
Aquarius signs seem to have two sides of their personality. They're deep thinkers who can definitely be off in their own worlds and people would for sure look at them and think, "That person is in their own head." They're also really social and friendly and can chat with people at a party like no problem at all. Yup, they're head-scratchers, but also interesting.
Their snack food has to have two sides to it, too, so it's only natural that it would be Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips. These snacks are salty and sweet and basically perfect.
Aquarius sign or not, we're totally drooling.
17 Recipe: Chocolate Caramel Potato Chips
Oh yes, this recipe from Key Ingredient has potato chips that are covered in both chocolate and caramel. It's double the sweetness and a total dream snack for Aquarius signs.
This recipe starts with potato chips (it suggests rippled ones) and has a bag of caramels, milk chocolate chips, and half and half. The best part? The chips are topped with bits from a Heath chocolate bar. This is when we have to ask ourselves, "Is this real life?" And this is when we'll remind ourselves, "Yes. It is."
Whether Aquarius signs are in their deep thinking moods or the life of the party that day, they'll love this snack.
16 Leo: Salt And Vinegar Potato Chips
If we wanted to say one thing about Leo signs, it would be that they're confident and can't be ignored. Some might even call them conceited. While many of us would consider that an insult and wouldn't want someone to say that about us, they honestly wouldn't mind that much. They love when everyone is looking at them and talking about them.
It stands to reason that a Leo needs a snack food that is just as assertive as they are. A snack food that can't be ignored, if you will. That's going to be Salt and Vinegar potato chips. Of all the chip flavors out there, these are super strongly flavored.
15 Recipe: Crispy Salt and Vinegar Smashed Potatoes
Sure, we could go out and buy a bag of salt and vinegar chips, and that's all well and good. But we can go one foodie step further and make our own snack recipe, and going for potatoes instead of chips is a brilliant idea.
The Comfort Of Cooking has blessed us Leo signs with a recipe for Crispy Salt and Vinegar Smashed Potatoes. If mashed and roasted potatoes are good, then smashed potatoes are even better because they are so fun. Baby potatoes, butter, salt, white vinegar, olive oil, fresh chives, and pepper are the ingredients that we need to make these. And we'll be making them very soon.
14 Pisces: Roasted Chickpeas
Pisces signs are sensitive and emotional. They're people who just want to get along with everyone and have everyone get along, too.
Yeah, they do sound like hippies, don't they? That's why the Pisces sign needs a total hippie snack, which would be roasted chickpeas. These are earthy, healthy snacks that involve taking a can of chickpeas, seasoning them, and roasting them in a hot oven. You can make them spicy or sweet or whatever you want, and they're a nice way to eat something crunchy and satisfying without going for the potato chips. Are you craving these and you aren't even a Pisces? Us too.
13 Recipe: Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas
So we know that if we're a Pisces sign, we need to get acquainted with the roasted chickpea. But what should we season them with? Where do we start?
In a round-up of snacks to bring with on trips, Buzzfeed included Crunchy Roasted Chickpeas from Bites of Bri, and they're perfect for Pisces signs when hunger strikes and a crunchy snack is necessary. We'll be happy. This recipe has garlic powder, salt, smoked paprika, olive oil, and, of course, chickpeas. They need around 25 minutes in a 400-degree oven and then we'll be rewarded with the coolest healthy snack ever.
12 Sagittarius: A Mezze Platter
Sagittarius signs love to travel, and on their travels, they have definitely encountered a mezze platter. This often includes hummus, dips, olives, pita, and veggies. It can be enjoyed for breakfast in some countries but it also makes a delicious snack.
Many people make this kind of assortment of food for dinner, too, or simply serve it as a pre-dinner snack when hosting a large group of people. It's always a good idea and always hits the spot. Sagittarius signs enjoy it because it reminds them of their travels and the good food they have enjoyed, and food-based memories are always the best.
11 Recipe: The Ultimate Hummus Plate
There are so many magical things in this recipe, we can't even. The Ultimate Hummus Plate from The Sweetest Occasion has naan bread or pita, red peppers, olives, avocado, hummus, and that's just a few of the ingredients.
Whenever Sagittarius signs want to remember an amazing meal they had, they can whip up this plate. Or when they're having people over, they can make it...and make sure to tell some stories of their travels. But they don't have to be told twice, they would totally do that anyway. (And their guests might not love it, but hey, that's just who these signs are.)
10 Capricorn: Crackers And Cheese
Okay, so cheese and crackers might not be as trendy as a snack as kale chips or roasted chickpeas. They might not be as thrilling and sugar-filled as chocolate covered potato chips. They might not be as addictive as salty, crunchy potato chips. And they might feel pretty old-fashioned at this point.
But the fact that cheese and crackers are such a traditional snack food is why they're just what Capricorn signs love. This is a very traditional and family-oriented sign, so they need a traditional snack food. We often serve and eat cheese and crackers at family gatherings, something else that this sign loves.
9 Recipe: This Epic Cheese Plate
Capricorns, aka massive cheese and cracker fans, need an epic recipe for a cool and fun cheese plate that they can make. How Sweet Eats has totally delivered... and that's an understatement. This recipe is seriously amazing.
This recipe involves three (yes, three) cheeseballs. One is goat cheese, cream cheese, pineapple, and toasted sliced almonds. Another is smoked blue cheese, pistachios, bacon, and cream cheese. And the third is gruyere, cream cheese, brown sugar, cashews, salt, sweet onion, and butter. Are we drooling on our computer screens or what?! Sorry, but we need a minute to process this cheesy dream.
8 Libra: Chips And Salsa
You can't go wrong with chips and salsa. Whether you make your own salsa or buy a store-bought one, it's always going to be pretty good. The same thing goes if you go the homemade route for tortilla chips or buy some.
Libra signs are the sign that want to please everyone. They are all about harmony and love and want everyone to get along. They need a snack that pleases everyone, so chips and salsa is their snack food. It's not like you would ever put out a bowl of tortilla chips and salsa and someone would say, "Oh gross, I don't want to eat that." It's totally the opposite. Everyone is always happy to dig in.
7 Recipe: Avocado Strawberry Mango Salsa
When Libras have a party or are just hosting a few friends over for dinner, they want to put out chips and salsa. But they want to go one step further and make some homemade salsa. They want everyone to be happy and to enjoy.
This recipe from Ambitious Kitchen has got fruit (mango and strawberries), avocado, cilantro, lime juice, salt, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeno. It's a really delicious, interesting salsa and we love that it has fruit. That just makes it that much better, and you can't go wrong with the fact that this dip has avocado as well.
6 Scorpio: Super Spicy Guacamole
We often hear people saying that you should never date a Scorpio. This sign is one that is joked about quite a bit, but hey, they're just passionate people, okay? And passionate people need a passionate snack.
The snack also has to be assertive and in-your-face. We're not saying that Scorpios are like that... but we're not saying that they're not like that, either. Scorpios are definitely super spicy guacamole when it comes to snack foods. Whether they're just as obsessed with the tortilla chips that often accompany this dreamy (and creamy) avocado-based dip or they're all about the guac, they're always happy when this snack is on offer.
5 Recipe: Super Spicy Guacamole
This Spicy Guacamole from Eat the Love boasts a lot of spice (it has garlic and a serrano pepper) plus beloved guac ingredients such as cilantro, salt and pepper, and lime juice and zest.
Okay, okay, so the whole cilantro thing is a debate and not everyone loves it. We get it. But this recipe sounds so good (and so spicy and perfect for Scorpios) that perhaps we'll just forget about our feelings on cilantro and focus on the fact that guac is always a good idea. Is it possible that a more delicious dip exists? We don't think so.
4 Taurus: Chicago-Style Popcorn
Taurus signs are stubborn and that's their main personality trait, so it stands to reason that they would love a snack that not everyone loves (or even truly understands, to be honest).
They would insist that this is the best snack ever and refuse to listen to anyone who said otherwise. They would make these snack declarations no matter where they were or who they were talking to. And their friends and family would nod and say, "Taurus signs..."
So what snack food are Taurus signs nuts for? That would be Chicago-style popcorn, aka a mix of cheese and caramel flavored popcorn.
3 Recipe: Chicago-Style Popcorn
Sure, Chicago-style popcorn may be a divisive thing and not everyone thinks that it's delicious or even a good idea. Some people might want plain popcorn, buttered popcorn, or caramel popcorn with no cheese involved at all. It's not everyone's cup of tea (or bowl of popcorn).
But either way, we think that this Chicago-Style Popcorn recipe from The Kitchn looks awesome, so we just know that Taurus signs will be all about it. The cheddar popcorn has cheddar cheese powder, salt, and butter, and the caramel popcorn has light corn syrup, light brown sugar, fine salt, baking soda, vanilla extract, and butter. Yum.
2 Gemini: Trail Mix
You know those people who just can't seem to make up their minds or make any decisions? Even something small like their coffee order or what to get for dinner at their local pub seems like a massive deal. Geminis are the twins of the Astro world, and their dual personality means t's just tough for them to make choices, what can they say?
Gemini signs are very in so they need a snack food that has a little bit of everything. Trail mix is their perfect snack food. Have we had trail mix in a while? Chances are, we ate it back when we were kids but haven't had it recently, and that should totally change.
1 Recipe: Sweet and Salty Trail Mix
We need an amazing recipe for trail mix, and this one for Sweet and Salty Trail Mix from Love Bakes Good Cakes has a ton of awesome things going for it.
It has salted sunflower seeds, dry-roasted peanuts, whole natural almonds, roasted and salted pistachios, dark chocolate M&Ms, and raisins. You have every flavor and texture going strong here, from nuts to chocolate to raisins, and for all the Geminis who spend hours trying to figure out what snack to eat, this will be more than perfect.
Which snack and sign are we? Or do we just want to eat all these delicious snacks? (That's totally the right answer.)
