Why don’t people eat while they’re taking a shower? Well, for many reasons of course, but up until now, the only acceptable meal to eat in a shower has been an orange. And one man is on a mission to change that.
Twitter user Gaz has been chronicling his journey of eating food in the shower and he’s currently on day 44 of his shower meal saga.
“I'm often in a rush in the morning,” he said, “so this was very convenient.” Forty-four days into his experiment, Gaz has eaten a giant gummy worm, crab legs, and a plate of curry chicken, which he dropped, shattering at his feet. Most recently, Gaz reviewed a pickle and peanut butter sandwich, which he reluctantly gave a 10/10 rating.
starting new series where I review foods in the shower. Shower Food #1- Pistachio Ice Cream Bar: pretty good to eat in shower. Stick makes it portable & keeps things clean. Tastes just as good as if I ate it not in shower. Contrast between hot shower & cold ice cream is also nice pic.twitter.com/hwqjdu9bAV— gaz (@gazpachomachine) December 6, 2022
“I'm ashamed to admit I genuinely enjoyed this and will be eating it again in the future,” he said. But that’s not even the craziest cuisine Gaz has sampled in the sprinkler. A giant sour gummy worm, Takis, Coco Puffs, and the highly requested cotton candy stick have all been swallowed and scored.
Shower Food Review 43 - Peanut Butter & Pickle sandwhich. This was a suggestion from a friend who legitimately eats these every day. At first I doubted it but after the first bite I realized how wrong I was. It reminded me that there is nothing wrong with being different. 10/10 pic.twitter.com/mmeSdQhgQL— gaz (@gazpachomachine) May 3, 2023
Shower Food Review 42: Giant Sour Gummy Worm - This was the most shame I've ever felt in the shower. I'm worried even God won't forgive me for this one. My ex girlfriend is moving out soon and she saw me eating this. The look on her face said "I made the right choice." 7/10 pic.twitter.com/d8rCUg1S9v— gaz (@gazpachomachine) May 2, 2023
Shower Food Review 39: Blue Takis- These were spicy & a little messy but the cold water cooled me down. I also need to cool down when people dont take me seriously. Life can be messy but if u find the right person they can help u clean it up. I hope I find that person 1 day. 6/10 pic.twitter.com/6NPyjKIyal— gaz (@gazpachomachine) April 27, 2023
Shower Food Review 37: Cotton Candy - For some reason this was the most highly requested Shower Food Review. Perhaps people wanted to see me accidentally get it wet and have it dissolve, like that sad raccoon in that viral youtube video. But I am not a raccoon. I am a man. 4/10 pic.twitter.com/GyYOfO50Xy— gaz (@gazpachomachine) April 25, 2023
Gaz’s series has inspired dozens of other accounts to rate shower foods, but none of them do it quite like he does. “I'm happy I've inspired so many to do Shower Food Reviews,” he tweeted, “but this is getting strange.”
what started with beautiful shower food reviews has now turned into something dark. why are people showering with socks on. cigarettes are not food. why is this person crying. i hope they are ok. I am going to go on a walk now. lots to think about. https://t.co/CSMJi6zEN4— gaz (@gazpachomachine) April 25, 2023

Gaz’s cotton candy review has more than 10 million views, and his series only continues to grow. A recent poll of his followers revealed that a majority of them never want him to stop testing grub in the tub. “I have been trying to convince friends, family, and coworkers for years that shower snacks are amazing,” one fan wrote. “Everyone thinks I’m crazy.”
As long as Gaz doesn’t trip, choke, or electrocute himself with a toaster, it looks like you shower-eating freaks will get to keep on following your favorite series. As for me, the only thing I’m taking into the shower is an ice-cold beer.
