Oooh! Goldfish crackers! Throw a few of those between your keyboard and body and shovel them into your mouth with one hand while the other is pressing the space bar.

The only problem is that they don't come in big enough bags, and that substantial piles of them disappear off desks faster than you'd expect.

I just remembered Bagel Dogs. Oh HELL YES Bagel Dogs. Little hot dogs placed inside a blanket of bagel dough. Fucking awesome.

Some foods I like to eat while computing are spam(chopped out of the can with pocketknife), doritos, cheddar, crackers. Usually drink water because I'm a cheapskate, but when I do drink soda I drink coke or fanta.

Best computer food is bagels for me. They don't make much of a mess, and they are completely dry and grease free (I hate a greasy or dirty keyboard).

It is out, you just can't buy them from the site, you have to go to... the grocery store or some place that carries stuff like that.

Milk, cocoa, and instant coffee powder, heated to mix, then with 2 ice cubes.
Pretzel goldfish, chocolate chips, and cheerios.
If it's a really late night, then I will actually eat spoonfuls of instant coffee powder.

Probably Brussel Sprouts (though for being a good part out of water, they make my mouth dry, so I usually have a Sprite or water along with it).

I've slowly sifted to orange slices because they go well with my soda (except mountain dew, sadly) and they don't crumble all over my desktop/laptop/computer
The only thing better than bacon is more bacon on it, potentially sprinkled with bacon salt.

I like staying away from greesy/finger food as it tends to get on the keyboard or make you wash your hands. I usually do noodles, soup or a salad, eat with a fork while reading up on wikipedia or xkcd. As I am currently jobless and spend much of my time hunting or at home posting, I tend to eat whatever can be made in large batches at cost and frozen/reheated.

My best computer food, is really gamer food.
Nougat bar, from fosters, with almond chunks in it.
First time I ever ate it, I played a real scorcher.
Legendary on Halo 2, entire level, I think I got shot twice total.

Then I moved onto Unreal Tournament 2004.
I think I scarred some hardcore gamers for life.

Put a few slices of that in a toaster, turn it on, wait a few minutes. Take tiger-bread out and spread some butter all over it.

Well, I guess I'm not as geeky as I used to be, but I tend to take five-minute breaks from coding when I need to eat.

Noodles; Lebanese bread with hummous; couscous with wasabi.

For beverages, usually tea (lapsang souchong, Russian Caravan, Earl Grey, kukicha or sencha, usually), a tisane (peppermint or ginkgo), or occasionally coffee (usually only if I've been up for a couple of days though).

Sodas (Dew is best, Monster for those horrid midday nap attacks, and anything else for variety; Dr. Pepper, ginger ale, Coke). Maybe pure coffee or tea when carbonation is undesired. Drink desired drink until calorie content satisfies hunger.
Um... solid food? Like, proper sustenance? Anything with noodles. For some reason anything eaten with chopsticks never gets in my keyboard, but does take up all the available space on Deskie while being eaten.
Also, cereal is love at any time of day. Same desk space problem, but I can't recall the last time I ate a bowl of it away from my desk. However, there's the chance of getting too absorbed in some computer-based activity to neglect the cereal, leaving it to become nauseating mush. Such risks must be taken (or just eat Life, which is good regardless).

As a poor college student with a fridge barely big enough to hold our beer, usually my gaming/computer food consists of easy-mac. Which, oddly enough, isn't that easy compared to other things that I could have chosen to purchase...

Ramen was up there too until I started getting intestinal issues related to Makes Stuff Good.

Drinks are expensive to buy regularly. So usually I just buy a gigantic container of juice or something and fill it with water to sip on. If I'm super lucky, my parents 'll buy me large quantities of La Croix knock offs, which I love. No calories, cuts through thirst like nobody's business, and it's just water! Which is always good for you.

*Edit* Makes Stuff Good AKA Monosodiumglutamate AKA MSG

The winner is cold pizza, easily. Not just pizza, but cold pizza. The advantage of cold pizza is that you get the same great taste as hot pizza (sometimes even tastier) only without the dripping cheese and greasy keyboard. No plate required for this delectable treat!

I would have to say broccoli, bananas, powdered milk, tomatoes, celery, apples, strawberries and a hint of nutmeg blended into a delicious paste. Best food ever.

Favourite hacking food

What's your favourite food for hacking?

Until recently, I consumed copious amounts of Heinz Tomato Soup while hacking. Just recently, though, I've started eating a lot of toast. Now all I need is a compact classic Macintosh.
