Candy Meth and Los Pollos Hermanos: The Best ‘Breaking Bad’-Inspired Food

You’d think a show as violent as Breaking Bad would suppress your appetite, but it’s surprisingly hard to watch without getting hungry. Breaking Bad has been saturated with food from the beginning, and it’s almost as famous for breakfast and Funyuns as it is for its gruesome plot elements. Food is such a huge part of the show that the menu for a viewing party writes itself, and some hungry viewers have gone far enough to make Breaking Bad food items. There’s a surprising glut of snacks inspired by the show to indulge in, from homemade fried chicken to official show tie-ins. Below, we round up some of the best refreshments for Breaking Bad superfans.


Turns out Aaron Paul is addicted to the blue stuff in real life: he’s so in love with the rock candy they use on set that he’s jokingly admitted to “pushing” it to cast and crew. “I get everyone to try it. I literally try to hand out our drugs to new [actors] on the show. They’re like, ‘No, I don’t want to try.’ ‘Here just have one. You’re on Breaking Bad! Eat some of the meth!’ And they do and they’re like, ‘Wow, that’s actually really good.’ And then I always see them go to the big bins of meth, grab out a few and eat it…. I’m like, ‘Yeah, you’re liking my product.’” And thanks to Albuquerque’s generous Candy Lady, you can get the official product right now for mad cheap. The Candy Lady does not recommend giving this product to children.
