Martha Stewart's favorite snack will shock you

Nothing beats cozying up with a good book or movie with a platter of snacks by your side, whether your preferred nosh of choice is Flamin' Hot Cheetos, fresh fruit, or candy. But sometimes our cravings urge us to eat something outside of our usual diet, and that must be happening to Martha Stewart, too, because her favorite snacks are kind of shocking. 

The businesswoman and entertainer is known for her high falutin' cooking and recipes, but when snack time comes around, she's decidedly more down-to-earth. Maybe it's all the time she's been spending with Snoop Dogg that's changed her tastes, but Stewart's favorite snacks are a real mixed bag. 

What is Martha Stewart's favorite snack?

Stewart's favorite snacks vary somewhat, but she says that her go-to "guilty pleasure" snack food is American cheese (via Town & Country) — yes, the individually wrapped kind that comes in plastic.

"I steal American slices sometimes," she confessed in an interview, saying that "it's such a good snack." She even pilfers the American cheese slices from her housekeeper's food drawer when the craving strikes. We can only hope she remembers to replace it before her housekeeper goes to make herself a grilled cheese sandwich after a long day of polishing furniture.

Stewart's other go-to snacks are a real mish-mash of flavors. Sometimes, she goes for "a spoon of really good organic peanut butter," and if it's a late-night snack she's going for, she really goes crazy. 

Her late-night snack of choice? Pickled herring. "I eat pickled herring as a late-night snack before I go to bed because it's savory and good," she said. I hope she has a good toothpaste, or that morning breath must be something fierce! 

Last but not least, Stewart loves liverwurst. She says she'll squeeze calves' liverwurst straight out of a tube into her mouth. The stars: they're just like us, except for when it comes to snack time.
