Belting out Taylor Swift lyrics in the car with the windows open is the ultimate therapy session. But what’s a better combo than pairing these heartfelt tunes with tempting foods to match the mood? Nothing.
1. “Blank Space” = Chocolate Lava Cake
Yes, this chocolate lava cake is a nightmare (calorie wise), dressed as a daydream. “Blank Space” is as indulgent as the ooey-gooey joy of the molten fudge center and the chewy cake surrounding it. Make one of these for your crush and you could make that bad guy good for a weekend.
2. “Fearless” = Frozen Yogurt
You can drag me head-first, fearless into fro-yo anytime. Tastes like ice cream, but you can disguise it as a more nutritious, fruity snack (or drown it in candy, your call). Nothing to be afraid of here.
3. “I Knew You Were Trouble” = Jalapeño Poppers
I knew that jalapeño popper was trouble. That fried cheesy goodness is so irresistible, until its spiciness has you screaming. At first the flaky breaded crust makes your taste buds tingle, but then you are thrown for a loop when the jalapeños burn the entire roof of your mouth. Next thing you know, you’re reaching back for another. Just like boys, huh?
4.“Love Story” = Chocolate Fondue
How much more cliché can you get than strawberries and chocolate fondue? Your heart will melt when you take a bite of the creamy chocolate atop a vibrant, sweet berry. Picture a romantic evening with you, your Romeo and melted chocolate. It’s a love story, baby just say yes.
5. “Mean” = Fried Chicken
Because really, when someone is mean to you, you need comfort food. I have two words for you: fried chicken. It’s been a rough week: you’re going through a heartbreak, dealing with friendship troubles, or maybe failing your biology midterm. If Taylor Swift can put up with the haters, so can you, fried drumstick (or fried anything, for that matter) in hand.
6. “Shake It Off” = Funfetti
There is no debate: happiness IS funfetti. Whether it’s the mini specks of bright color in cakes, cookies, cupcakes, or even doughnuts, the sugary goodness of funfetti will make all your troubles slip away. I dare you to pick up a funfetti doughnut and NOT start dancing around like a fool. Shake it off, people, shake it off.
7. “Style” = Sushi
If you ask any 20-year-old college girl, they will be the first to tell you that sushi will never go out of style, so hop on board. This song is an homage to the irresistible Harry Styles, who should be put forever on a pedestal; sushi is quite similar in its classic, sophisticated nature. We’ll always be coming back for more.
