‘Stranger Things’ star Noah Schnapp says ‘Running Up that Hill’ is his favorite song now
Noah Schnapp has become a household name since 2016’s Stranger Things. The ’80s-themed thriller returns July 1 for the second half of its fourth season, and fans are on the edge of their sofas.
Like the latest season of Stranger Things, eating is a big part of the 17-year-old actor’s life. Favorite food? Pizza.
Schnapp wants Surfer Boy Pizza, but what kind? His favourite food is cheese pie, but he also likes to spice things up. He likes buffalo chicken pizza when he is feeling spicy. “I think it’s so good.”
Scnhapp’s guilty pleasure is craft service applesauce packets. “I also love goldfish and of course my tbh (vegan hazelnut spread),” he says. “I love crunchy and I love a mix of salt and sweet. So like, for tbh — [I’d dip] something salty in it, like a cracker or something.”
Schnapp’s vegan hazelnut spread led to a cooperation with Sprinkles: They are launching a limited-time cupcake flavour with a “better for you” snack food favourite. On July 1 and 2, Sprinkles bakeries countrywide will sell tbh Chocolate Hazelnut Cupcakes. “It’s a dark chocolate cake and then in the middle is just like oozing tbh,” he explains. “Then cream cheese icing. It is delicious.
Schnapp is not vegan, but he intended tbh to be appreciated by everyone. “I love that my hazelnut spread is vegan because I get so much feedback from people that say that they’re looking for a spread that’s good and also vegan,” he adds.
Schnapp’s dream TV binge-watching party would include salty-sweet snacks. Chips, salsa, and popcorn mix would be on his table. “Popcorn, and maybe M&Ms,” he says. I am good with popcorn and a movie.
Scnhapp still feels worried after years of performing. Before-bed snack relieves his worries. “Toast with peanut butter and tbh,” he says. “I always have that before bed.”
Schnapp craves his mom’s pasta when he misses home. He loves spaghetti. “A nice pasta with red sauce is just perfect.”
Schnapp is not a picky eater and will eat everything, except for two items. He says, “Anchovies and canned tuna,” “I am done. I will try most foods.
What is this ’80s actor’s dinner party playlist? Schnapp: “I think ‘Running Up that Hill’ has to be mentioned,” must be mentioned. “It is my favourite, too. “The NeverEnding Story” is a Stranger Things classic.
