How to curate the perfect snacks for your next roommate hang with GoPuff


Fun music, good people, a comfortable seat, and maybe even some mood lighting are all essentials of a great group hang. But whether you’re heading to the park or cozying up on the couch, there’s one essential that can make or break your experience: snacks. Great snacks separate a good time from a great time, and being the official snack-bearer for your next chill sesh is a guaranteed way to start the #vibes off on the right foot.

As the experts on all things roommate living, we’ve learned a thing or two about the best snacks, drinks, and desserts for hanging out in big groups. That’s why when we went looking for our next Common member perk — the discounts you get at local and national brands as a Common member — we went to GoPuff, the leading delivery service. Common members now get an exclusive discount at GoPuff on everything from chips to wine and chocolate.

Not a Common member? Don’t worry, you still have access to GoPuff’s “shelves” and super fast delivery service. To help you choose what to add to your cart for your next roommate hang, we’ve curated a few menus for you.

Movie night with roommates

We’ll start with the easy options first: movie night. You can go classic with buttered popcorn, or introduce the group to something new — we love this sweet and salty kettle corn. For desserts, GoPuff has a wide range of candy, everything from Swedish Fish to M&Ms and sharing size packs of Sour Skittles. If you’re looking to really wow your roommates, and your tastebuds, order Milk Bar’s custom cookie tin. This cute tin comes with 12 cookies from Milk Bar’s iconic line of desserts, including the sweet and salty Compost cookie.

Our picks:

  • Quinn Real Butter and Sea Salt Microwave Popcorn
  • Boom Chicka Pop Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn
  • Sharing Size Sour Skittles
  • Milk Bar Custom Cookie Tin

Impromptu picnic

Summer days are just around the corner and most areas of the country have already reached peak-picnic weather, with sunny skies and a breeze that makes sitting on the ground for a few hours bearable. Everyone has different ideas of what they should bring to a picnic — some go full potluck, others just bring the beer. Our recommendation? Grab something classic like chips and dips, but find a way to make it a little more interesting. Voodoo Chips are always a crowd pleaser, and we’d be psyched to try out Hope Organic’s Spicy Avocado Hummus dip. If you’re on beer or wine duty, GoPuff has you covered, with variety packs of hard-seltzer and beer.

Our picks:

  • VooDoo Chips
  • Hope Organic Spicy Avocado Hummus
  • Dos Equis Variety Pack
  • White Claw Hard Seltzer Variety Pack

From work to weekend

We get it, working from home with your roommates is not what you imagined when we said “roommate hang.” And without the right space (or soundproofing) the chatter of multiple Zoom calls can get pretty annoying. But anything is possible with the right snacks and cold brew strong enough to get you through a Friday of back to back meetings. Hop on GoPuff’s website with your roomies and stock up on easy to eat snacks, like Annie’s Fruit Snacks, Chili Roasted Pistachios, or handy snack packs with cheese, meat, and nuts. If you really want to step up your game, order GoPuff’s snack mystery box. At only $25, you and your roommates can switch up your workdays with new snacks from across the country for only a few dollars each.

Our picks:

  • GoPuff Barista Coffee Box
  • La Colombe Cold Brew Brazilian Medium Roast
  • Sargento Balanced Breaks: Sharp White Cheddar with Almonds and Cranberries
  • Annie’s Homegrown Fruit Snacks Variety Pack
  • Chili Roasted No Shell Pistachios
  • Go Puff Better for You Mystery Snack Box
