The aliens have landed: What do you feed them?

We all have a favorite food or snack that we can't live without. Sometimes there are a lot to choose from, and sometimes the thought of eating the same meal everyday can be off putting.

Lately there have been talks about aliens existing, and yes, this has been up for discussion for many years, but videos have circulated online of some officials stating that aliens may be real.

So my question to you is this: What would be the first meal or snack that you would feed them?

A dish that has cultural significance

Many cultures have a signature dish or ingredient that they are famous for. For example, Italy is famous for pizza and pasta, Japan is famous for sushi, South Korea is famous for Kimchi, Greece is famous for Feta Cheese, and the USA is famous for hamburgers.

Would you give them a dish that is something cultural and traditional? I can imagine that this could spark up a conversation with the aliens about your heritage, culture and country, and why this dish is important and how long it has existed for.

A comforting meal that would never disappoint you

We all have that one meal or snack that we love and eat out of comfort. Whether we are sad, tired or just feeling peckish, we know that this certain food always hits the spot.

So what is yours? Are you the type of person that could eat a whole tub of ice cream, or a bag of crisps/chips and feel satisfied? Or do you like to whip up something quick like instant ramen or a BLT sandwich? Does a bowl of cheesy, creamy, mac and cheese always give you pleasure? Or maybe even your favorite chocolate bar that you know will never disappoint you?

A comforting meal or snack could be something that you would want to create a bond over with the aliens, especially if you want to stay on their good side.

A signature dish that always wins the crowd

Imagine that you invite aliens over for dinner as your guests, what would be that one signature dish that you would cook for them? What always pleases your crowd and makes them ask for seconds?

For those who love to cook, there's always have that one recipe that's a crowd pleaser; whether that's your famous steak or cheesecake, it'll make people wipe their plates clean. Maybe the aliens might hire you as a personal chef on their spaceship if they're truly satisfied with the dining experience that you offer. It might be your getaway ticket to moving to Mars.

Your favorite restaurant that is like your second home

We all have a favorite restaurant where we order take out from or dine at regularly. Sometimes it's a Mexican joint with delicious tacos, or a Turkish Kebab shop with bountiful portions. Maybe it's just a fast food chain that you know will always fill your hunger.

So would you feed the aliens your favorite fried chicken or noodle based soup? Would you bring them to the joint and get them to use an interactive machine to order and see their fascination, or speak to a waiter/waitress and see how they interact? It would be quite humorous, yet fascinating at the same time.

What are your thoughts?

Sure, the thought of aliens landing on Earth can be a scary and wild thought, but we don't really know what they are like, since we have never interacted with one. Maybe they are fascinated by our planet, and are curious about everything, including what we eat and how we survive. So would you give them the ultimate food tour or not?

    I’m sensing that once we encounter aliens, we will have evolved far beyond our belief that we need food 😉 I enjoyed your article, great question! 😇

  • Loved this idea so much! Congrats on your Top Story I really enjoyed reading it. But now I'm in a quandry between, dak dori tang, my absolute favourite meal (Though I fear it might blow their antennae) or whether I'd go with something a little less spicy, maybe something simple like cheese of toast...I'm definitely going to be over thinking this dilemma for a while!

    I'm sure they will come prepared with enough food stock in their ships. My best guess will be jelly-like foods

  • WellsFiction( Matt)about a month ago

    Definitely pasta or ice cream :)

    I would feed them Ugali and Beef, as they are my best. Honestly, I don't think they would be satisfied, and I would be shaking while placing the food on the table😂😂😂

    it's a very interesting article, in my view as an Indian I will feed them the most favorite non-veg dish the BUTTER CHICKEN lol. congratulations on top story!

    I decided to try out if my lost crypto can be recovered by this Recovery agent i saw online. I have been skeptical to try all these while thinking all of them are the same but something in me told me to give BACKENDRECOVER att RESCUETEAM dott C O M a chance. He was so professional in his dealings with me and in no time my lost crypto was back to my account, i couldn't believe it at first, felt like i was dreaming. $45k worth of Bitcoin recovered.

    If I were to think *very* literally about it, I'd be worried about accidentally poisoning them with an ingredient they're allergic to. But if that was no concern and they can eat Earth food, I'd bake them a cake!

    I'd feed them my psychiatrist.

    I would definitely feed them a pizza. That has the shape of a flying saucer and would remind them that they need to fly back home. 😉
