You’ve seen him dominate the field as the tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs, but did you know that Travis Kelce has a soft spot for French toast? Yes, you heard it right! The NFL superstar revealed his pregame ritual involves none other than this beloved breakfast dish. First discussing it back in 2020 with Men’s Journal, Kelce confirmed, “On game day, you want to carb up, so I have the energy I need for the game. French toast [gets] my blood sugar going [and gets] some carbs in.”
But why stop there? In an exchange on X (formerly Twitter) with actor and Kansas native Rob Riggle, Kelce enthusiastically reaffirmed his love for French toast as his favorite pregame meal. The clincher came in 2022 when speaking with Inside Hook, Kelce proclaimed, “Every pregame meal has been French toast and strawberries since I’ve been on the Chiefs.”
So next time you watch Kelce perform those stunning catches and breakneck runs, just remember: French toast might be the unsung hero of his game day energy!
Patrick Mahomes: A Man of Doritos and Nighttime Snacking
If you think Travis Kelce’s pregame meal is interesting, wait until you hear about his teammate Patrick Mahomes. While Kelce leans towards the morning staple, Mahomes shows off his penchant for nighttime snacking. Specifically, Doritos. Yes, the crunchy, flavorful triangles that most of us adore.
In an eye-opening Instagram Q&A, Brittany Mahomes, Patrick’s wife, spilled the chips—err, beans—on her husband’s nightly ritual. When asked about Patrick’s funny habits, she candidly replied, “Eat Doritos every night in bed 😂.”
However, it’s not just any bag of Doritos that will do for the Chiefs’ quarterback. In a recent TikTok video with GQ Sports, Mahomes disclosed his evolving Dorito taste. “I always grab either a purple bag of Doritos, which I just got on. I used to be a cool ranch guy, but now I’m on the purple bag,” referring to the spicy sweet chili flavor.
The transition from cool ranch to spicy sweet chili Doritos reveals more than just a shift in snacking; it might give us a glimpse into Mahomes’ evolving palate and, who knows, maybe even his game strategy!
