“A Swag Meal is the most legendary meal for gaming.”

                   - urban dictionary

Or to put it another way, a Swag Meal is what gamers eat while playing video games. Gamers like to show off their epic swag meal preparations on social, to get feedback and see how tasty they did.

This got us thinking, what if swag meals were always a thing? What if there were Swag Meals during the release of every new game console? What were the favorite munchies of that particular gaming era?

We went back, back, back, back and had one crazy, nostalgic exploration into the coveted childhood foods of the time.
