Our long national nightmare concluded with a spread of churros, ice cream and sandwiches on The Today Show.
Don’t worry, America. Chloe Kim isn’t hangry anymore.
The 17-year-old snowboarding phenom was rewarded on the NBC morning show Tuesday after winning gold in the halfpipe Monday. Kim chatted about her win over some of her favorite foods after she tweeted in between runs during the final that her stomach was growling after she hadn’t finished her breakfast.
Wish I finished my breakfast sandwich but my stubborn self decided not to and now I'm getting hangry— Chloe Kim (@chloekimsnow) February 13, 2018
To be clear, if real Chloe and hangry Chloe were two different people, like in those Snickers you’re-not-you-when-you’re-hungry commercials, they would have taken home both gold and silver, with hangry Chloe getting the top prize. (If the Snickers people are reading this, you’re welcome.)
The endearing star had also mentioned a hankering for ice cream and churros on her (excellent and very active) Twitter feed, so that’s what she got when she sat down with hosts Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb.
Apparently, churros have some anxiety-reducing properties.
I'm so nervous!!!!!!!— Chloe Kim (@chloekimsnow) February 11, 2018
Oh and I also had 2 churros today and they were pretty bomb so if you ever get nervous go eat a churro— Chloe Kim (@chloekimsnow) February 11, 2018
And even during a chilly qualifier, ice cream seemed like a good choice.
Could be down for some ice cream rn— Chloe Kim (@chloekimsnow) February 12, 2018
Can we just point out one thing, though? Someone at NBC is clearly confused over the definition of a breakfast sandwich. The selection on Kim’s plate looks more like a typical ham and cheese, which clearly belongs in the standard, or lunch, sandwich category. A breakfast sandwich can take many forms, all of them sacrosanct, but it’s not whatever that was.
The miscategorized meal went over just fine, clearly, and it doesn’t seem like Kim is hard to please when it comes to food. In the past, she has tweeted about her love of In-N-Out Burger, pizza and Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, which she once had a friend mail her in New Zealand because they weren’t available.
It’s been a good few days for Kim, the hero snack lovers didn’t know they needed until she was flipping, tweeting and munching her way into their hearts.Nora Princiotti can be reached at email@example.com. Follow her on Twitter at @NoraPrinciotti.
