Knock, knock. Who’s there? Our Comedy Book Club Pairings, of course! Get ready to LOL (or maybe even ROFL) with a hilarious selection of slapstick snacks, light-hearted libations and uproarious reads that just might turn your book club into a comedy club.
On the fun and funny food front, you can’t go wrong with a classic cream pie (though we recommend sharing it with friends, not throwing it at them). Made fresh in our bakery, these delicious cream pies come in chocolate, coconut or banana and a variety of sizes fit for any party. Throw in a couple of Tony’s Chocolonely chocolate bars and dessert is done!
If you’re feeling a little cheesy, drop by our specialty cheese department for some of the finest (and funniest) fromage around. With punny titles like Cypress Grove’s Sgt. Pepper, Ms. Natural and PsycheDillic, your guests will have just as much fun choosing their cheese as they will have eating it. Mr. Cheese O’s cheese snacks are another perfect pick for silly, savory snacking.
Have a fun time toasting with wines like Petite Petit, a big, full-bodied Petite Sirah and Petit Verdot blend with flavors of black fruit and vanilla, substantial richness and a slightly dry finish—not to mention a couple of elephants enjoying a few glasses of wine on the label. Take a stroll through our adult beverage department to see a variety of other wines, beers and spirits with humorous labels and tantalizing taste.
As for the books themselves, pick up some playful fiction like Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett, Company by Max Barry or The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde. For true tales of hilarious hijinks, look for uproarious nonfiction reads like Bossypants by Tina Fey, Yes Please by Amy Poehler and many, many more.
Drop by your local library or bookstore for more riotous reading recommendations, and for additional amusing snacks and sips, just visit your nearest Nugget Markets. Happy reading!
Selection varies by store.
