Way back in 2016, four brand-new Gilmore Girls episodes started streaming on Netflix, offering some much-needed closure for superfans who have been waiting almost 15 years to hear those final four words. Gilmore Girls is among the best shows on Netflix, and every fall, fans across the country rewatch this timeless TV classic.

When Netflix announced they'd be returning to Stars Hollow, many of the original cast members jumped on board (even Melissa McCarthy finally agreed to reprise her role as beloved, quirky Sookie St. James). Reviews signaled good things for loyal fans—Real Simple's sister brand EW called the revival "a welcome dose of hilarious and humane escapism that satisfies like a nostalgia trip." Others have called it "comfort food" and "worth the wait." Whether you're new to all things Gilmore Girls or you're rewatching the original seasons and the Netflix reboot for the umpteenth time, you have hours of great binge-watching ahead of you.

Any true Gilmore fan knows that a proper binge-athon requires snacks. For those planning to watch all four episodes of Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life in a row or settle in for an hours-long binge-session, we felt it was only right to pay tribute to some of Lorelai and Rory's movie night staples—Pop Tarts, mallomars, pizza, and coffee. Whether you're watching alone or with friends, we've come up with the ultimate pairing guide for the series' most iconic foods. Because the only thing that makes a Gilmore Girls marathon even better is a few glasses of wine.
