No Gods, No Masters, No Bad Snacks

Hi! My name is Megan Seling. As a culture writer and journalist, I’ve spent the last two decades in the trends of the food and music industry — I’ve eaten the Swedish Fish Oreos, I’ve taken on misogyny in punk music. Hell, I literally wrote the book about stuffed cupcakes.

Now, I’m taking my snack fandom to the next level; welcome to my newest project, Snack and Destroy, a weekly newsletter dedicated to snacks, candy, and rock and roll.

All snacks are fair game — new, old, sweet, savory — and each week’s snack will be paired with a song. Why? Because there are few things I love more than sharing my favorite food and music with people like you. The right song heard at the right time can help soothe a storming brain just as a bite of a favorite childhood treat can transport us to simpler times, at least temporarily.

Cheesy? Yes, but it’s true. Food and music bring us together, food and music comfort us when we’re alone. Let’s eat.

Here are just some of the types of snacks you can expect to read about.

Here’s What You Get When You Subscribe

Snack and Destroy’s Fun Size subscription is free. That’s right! Totally free! It’s just a small bite of what Snack and Destroy has to offer, including one weekly “A Snack and a Song” email.

Want more? Consider joining Snack and Destroy’s Snack Pack* for just $6 a month. That’s cheaper than a Party Size bag of M&Ms! 🍬🎉

Your paid monthly subscription not only supports me, my writing, and my admittedly pricey snack habit, but it also gives you access to exclusive Snack and Destroy posts. I’m talking interviews with artists and musicians about their favorite chips and candy bars, monthly munchie-related playlists, and other special features. (Recipes, y’all. Of course the Bake It in a Cake lady is gonna bring you some recipes.)

Plus! PLUS! Every month one paying subscriber will be chosen at random to receive FREE SNACKS! I’ll send you your own box of whatever I’m writing about and/or loving that month. You’re basically buying a raffle ticket once a month for a chance to win snacks! (Offer is available to U.S.-based subscribers only. I can’t swing those overseas shipping fees. I’m sorry.)

Sometimes, when I’m sleepy, I accidentally order 15 bags of Haribo candy.
