Get Your Grub On

That's exactly what I did at E3, passing by the tiny Gamer Grub booth between appointments. I approached the counter, filled with sample cups of all four flavors, out of sheer curiosity. ("Where have I heard of this before?") I was surprised --nay, shocked!-- to find the snacks to be, in a word, delicious. The company representative apparently took notice of my media badge (and my approving reaction) and quickly offered full-size bags of the Pizza and PB&J (peanut butter and jelly) flavors. I, being damn-near shameless, thanked him and hinted that our rather large website staff would really appreciate the samples, which naturally led to even more free food being offered and subsequently accepted.

A small portion of the samples did go out to my fellow NWR writers, but most of it went directly into my digestive system. That's because I was hungry, and Gamer Grub is food. E3 truly brings out a person's primal nature. I tend to skip real lunch at E3 for the sake of my valuable time and somewhat less valuable money, but my belly stayed satiated for two mid-days in a row thanks to Gamer Grub. It tasted good, even in larger quantities, and it satisfied me for a few hours.

The snacks were such a nice surprise that I felt compelled to congratulate the company via email after E3... which, as you might expect by now, resulted in even more pouches of Gamer Grub being sent through the mail. Maybe this is wasteful shipping, but no more so than the ramen, cookies, and military rations that game companies have sent over the years to promote various things.

Only the Pizza and PB&J flavors are currently available for purchase (at around $4 per bag), and you probably won't find Gamer Grub at all outside the two initial retail partners: Fry's Electronics and ThinkGeek.com. Of the first two flavors, I prefer Pizza, which tastes like a savory trail mix covered in Doritos powder. It's obviously cheesy and salty, but there's also a pleasantly strong tomato flavor. PB&J is less satisfying as a heavy snack, but it captures the sandwich's flavors extremely well, particularly the contrast between salty peanuts and sweet (strawberry) jelly. Both are filling and definitely tasty, and although the food is heavily processed (like most things we eat these days), Gamer Grub's ingredients include relatively wholesome peanuts, almonds, pita chips, dried fruit, etc. The two flavors I've tasted are good enough that I'm still eager to try the Chocolate and Wasabi flavors when they become available.

The makers of Gamer Grub were eager to tell me about the product's health benefits at the E3 booth. It's fortified with several vitamins, including some exotic-sounding stuff that, when provided in a certain combination, supposedly makes your brain and muscles work together better. That's not very appealing for me, since I often want to turn off my brain and employ minimal muscle function while playing games, even on Wii. This stuff is mainly being marketed at the Halo/CoD4 crowd -- gamers who are looking for an edge. I don't think they're going to find it in snack foods. The less dubious advantage for gamers is that Gamer Grub comes in a recloseable pouch that lets you pour the food into your mouth without ever touching it. The container works exactly as advertised.

You're an idiot if you think drinking Vitamin Water every day will make you healthy. It's just Kool-Aid with unnecessary nutrients, most of which don't absorb well without food. But I still buy Vitamin Water every now and then... because it tastes good. Same goes for Gamer Grub. I guess every food company has to find a marketing hook for its products, but any real or imagined competitive benefits from eating this stuff pales in comparison to what should be the real draw: the snacks are delicious. It seems odd to market a snack so directly to a particular population (like the Yorkie chocolate bar, or Men's Pocky) when it should be equally tasty to everyone. I found it to be most handy as an air travel snack, since it goes through security, fits easily in a carry-on, and tastes similar (but better) to the nuts and pretzels we already associate with airplane food. Regardless, if you are a connoisseur of snacks or just need to pick up some calories while out shopping, Gamer Grub is a fine choice.

Talkback

that Baby guyJune 24, 2009

This is probably the funniest article/blog post I've read from here in some time.  Those marketing reps sure suckered you in :p

I'd wind up trying it if it were available at a grocery store, wasn't overpriced, and the vitamins actually satisfied any of my dietary needs, but I'll only find out the second two after I see it in a grocery store and take a look.

MoronSonOfBoronGarnet Red, Contributing WriterJune 24, 2009

Yeeeeah, nothing beats REAL pizza...

Mop it upJune 24, 2009

What's a serving size of this and how many calories does it contain? How can I portion out a serving size if I'm not supposed to touch the food? Is this product for me if I have to ask questions? Why does Vitamin Water taste like drain water?

Is it weird that I like Yorkies? Especially the raisin and biscuit kind, that's one of the best candy bars ever.

ShyGuyJune 24, 2009

And you can wash it down with Mountain Dew game fuel! Currently in Horde and Alliance WoW flavors.

Is this the *real* reason you're excited there's a Fry's near your temporary home, Jonny?

Nick DiMolaNick DiMola, Staff AlumnusJune 24, 2009

I saw the headline for this blog and without even looking at the byline I knew Jonny had to have written it! On multiple occasions at the show I saw him walking around with his neck craned, pouring Gamer Grub down his throat. He would then immediately suggest popping into their booth for free sample bags because it was so delicious. It was pretty funny. He would also remark how he was "eating it properly" which I found consistently hilarious as well.

I will say, the Wasabi flavor was awesome, and reminded me of a typical Oriental snack mix you'd find at the supermarket.

TJ SpykeJune 24, 2009

$4 for a bag that is only 4 oz? I don't care if they are good or not, that's a rip-off, especially sing you get a 15 oz bag of chips for less than $1.

It does seem expensive. I'm sure the price will drop once more stores are carrying it. But, at least it is dense and filling (more than the same amount of potato chips).

Smash_BrotherJune 24, 2009

Heh, I can just picture Jonny looting the Gamer Grub booth.

"No really, guys, our site has like 50 editors. I'd better grab some more."

Shame it has MSG in it which means I'll never be able to try it.

ShyGuyJune 24, 2009

MSG is tasty. It gives food a savory flavor.

NinGurl69 *hugglesJune 24, 2009

MSG is in the air we breath, and inside Wii Motion Plus.

KDR_11kJune 24, 2009

I don't know... I avoid touching my input devices with dirty fingers so eating crisps at the PC is right out and these things seem to be pretty fatty too.

So they call potato chips "crisps" in Germany too?

D_AverageJune 24, 2009

I find Salt n Vinegar Pringles the perfect gamer grub.  Delicious and neat, so as to avoid getting oily crumbs all over your wii.

that Baby guyJune 24, 2009

Oh, there's MSG in it?  That stuff makes me sick.  I guess it's not something I'd ever consider picking up.

Seriously, I think Johnny got addicted to the stuff in the grub, and he's just writing this because they promised him more.  Someone make him detox, please.

If his post didn't tell you how much he liked it, try this:  I roomed with Jonny and didn't even get to try any!

That's why S_B condemned it earlier. Its so bad that one time we were playing Dungeons and Dragons and I had a big bag of Doritos and he nearly got sick because of the smell.

That's what I read and decided I'd get sick.  I'm a step ahead and behind you.

Anyways, I've figured out that for every hour this is the top post on the site, the company is going to send their addict another container of the stuff.  That must be it!

This is the epitome of bad product design.  It doesn't matter if the "grub" is supposed to be consumed without touching it.  If I can't even grab a handful of the stuff without wiping my hands before I touch a controller it doesn't serve its main purpose.

A better product would be one that fit into the "junk food" category (with or without essential nutrients injected into it) without soiling your hands.

NinGurl69 *hugglesJune 24, 2009

I would gladly take nachos in NASA tube form.

I'm confused by some of the posts here.

Are you guys allergic to MSG? If not, it's perfectly healthy and safe. I keep a shaker of it (Accent) in my kitchen for when I cook Asian food.

What's up with the complaints about powder and crumbs? The whole point is that the stuff doesn't get on your hands or controllers. That is the only (legit) thing about the snacks that is specially done for gamers.

Aaron never asked me for any Gamer Grub. It's not like I was Bogarting it!

that Baby guyJune 24, 2009

Whenever I have MSG, my tummy hurts.  I might be allergic to it, or it could be something else, but I know it's MSG doing it.

As far as crumbs and powder, I think we're all under the impression that you eat the food like you eat doritos or combos, or something similar.  If that's not the case, I didn't perceive things that way, and you're being a bad shill!  -10 foods for you!

Nick DiMolaNick DiMola, Staff AlumnusJune 24, 2009

The "proper" way to eat the stuff is to open the bag and pour the snack mix into your mouth, thus keeping your hands clean while playing. There really isn't anything else notable about it, besides tasting decent.

that Baby guyJune 24, 2009

Oh, Mr. Jack (And Mrs. Jack!?!?) are baked on this stuff now.  What has this website come to?

NinGurl69 *hugglesJune 24, 2009

I recently discovered the joys of daily beef jerky, and bought these Pringles breadstick snacks that are pizza flavored.

So awesome.

When I was in America, I decided that Fry's is the single greatest American innovation ever.

It would have been hard for these to be as bad as the initial impression made them seem, but it's good to see they actually turned out good. There is no Fry's locally, though, and ordering snack foods over the internet is a line I don't want to cross.

That's why you need Pro's liquid Doritos, in one of those beer helmets, so you can snack without looking away or even taking your hands off the controller.

There's a serious lack of reading comprehension in this thread! Gamer Grub is made by a company called Biosilo, which has exactly one employee, and I'm not sure he'll be 100% thrilled at the article, considering that I call his marketing "ridiculous," the performance claims "dubious," and the food itself "heavily processed." But certainly I gave it a fairer shake than Tycho did, since I actually tasted the stuff before writing about it.

I recently watched Robo Cop 2 and the main villain is addicted to a special illegal drug so at the end when he is made into Robo Cop 2.0 his cravings make him snap and go crazy. I pictured Jonny as a Robo Cop and scarfing down gamer grub. A rather funny image.

If my friend and I hit up Fry's I might grab one out of curiosity.

Eh, I wouldn't necessarily call MSG "safe"...

http://www.truthinlabeling.org/Proof_BrainLesions_CNS.html

I've always been highly allergic to it, as has my mother. But even my friends who can consume it without much issue will get head/stomach aches in sufficient amounts. It is essentially a neurotoxin as it's job is to overstimulate the taste buds to "fake" enhanced flavor.

This says nothing to your enjoyment of the snack. If you like it, enjoy. Just saying that until they come out with an organic version (and there's debate to whether or not that's safe either), it won't be something I can partake in.

StratosJune 26, 2009

I heard that some newer research came out that says MSG is actually OK for you. Thouhg it could have been specifically regarding cancer. I don't remember the details. Either way it's probably better to avoid.

MSG is a traditional part of Japanese cuisine and has been used (in its natural forms, primarily seaweed) for at least hundreds if not thousands of years. If you're allergic, that's one thing. Otherwise you're just paranoid.

It's a salt. Eat too much of anything and it's bad for you. Sure, there's too much MSG in the modern diet, but it's doing less harm than many other things used in excess.

And the stuff that is advertised as being "healthy" is often ridiculously expensive. I don't even know what's going on with the whole "organic" buzzword because I've always thought all food is organic...

Organic means that no chemicals or pesticides were used in the ground or on the plants when they were growing. The idea is that those chemicals get on and in the food and thusly you consume the chemicals which can be damaging to your body. That is the gist of the organic movement. There is an 'organic organization' in California that will certify things as organic which concerned people can turn to.

My Mom is getting into the organic thing.

Nothing like taking one source to back up your claims. Anyway I use MSG in virtually everything I make, no one in my family is allergic to it and it adds a great flavor. I'll also match that MSG with the great tasting aspartame in a drink ;).

lol I know what you mean. All the advice I can give is summed up to two sentences: Anything that comes from nature, whether it is produced en mass or not, is good for you. Eat in moderation.

Are you talking about frozen foods?

Quote from: Mop_it_up]I

All natural food is organic, scientifically at least lol. Processed foods, and food put in any kind of package has non-natural ingredients I would say they aren't totally organic, but that's just my opinion. If your body can absorb all the nutrients from whatever you ate, then I would say that is as organic as can be.

I guess I'll just have to grow my own food...

A little story... where I grew up, the owned terrain was approximately 10 764 ft^2. A small area for the house, a similar area for garden and driveway, and a huge area for farming and the barn and whatnot. My parents would plant anything they wanted within seasonal restrictions. Everything was grown naturally, yet they had to use a minimal amount of chemicals to protect fruit trees and veggies from parasites, diseases,  bugs, and whatnot. You just can't grown anything naturally unless you have it all covered to protect the plantation from nature itself. However if you live in an area that is not surrounded by such wilderness, i.e. in the city, and you have enough space then you shouldn't have much a problem growing anything without much chemicals other than resupplying the ground with more nutrients.

So kids, next time you find an uranium deposit make sure you use it to create your dining utensils. Make sure you garnish your meal with a liberal amount of poison ivy, with a couple handfuls of deadly nightshade, and for flavor please use all the mercury you wish. Because, remember, if it comes from nature it has to be good for you!

Most of the deadliest poisons known to man are 100% natural. That's why I make a point to eat as little natural food as possible.

Some people are allergic, some aren't.

But the real issue most people take is that MSG is very often hidden in ingredient labels. Gamer Grub at least has the balls to call it monosodium glutamate right on the list.

Generally speaking, if something lists "Natural Flavor" or "Spices", I can't eat it for risk of MSG poisoning. That's why many people are up in arms about it, because companies see the need to conceal it instead of just listing it right out there.

Companies conceal it in ingredients lists because people have made it out to be some kind of evil poison when it's not. But I totally think it should be listed accurately, just like other allergens such as peanuts. I don't understand Asian restaurants that don't use MSG. At least make it an option for those of us who like it.

NWR_pap64Pedro Hernandez, Contributing WriterJune 27, 2009

Is this even an issue?

People who are allergic to MSG avoid it. People who love MSG sprinkle it on everything edible. Its a matter of choice, like red or blue, paper or plastic, boxers or briefs. Why even argue it like it matters to everyone?

StratosJune 30, 2009

The trick is that people in Japan have the highest rate of people reaching centenial ages. So despite MSG in Asian food, they aren't obviously dieing from it. Unless Japan is the exception the the Asian MGS rule. Though I doubt it considering some of the dishes I've seen from there.
