Hillary Clinton, who’s competing for the Democratic Presidential nomination with Bernie Sanders, has to eat on the campaign trail, right? What exactly does she eat? Thankfully, there’s some info out there, including a Slate article from 2008. In it, it’s revealed that growing up she was a big fan of the Oliveburger at the Pickwick in Park Ridge, Illinois; it’s a six-ounce patty topped with chopped pimento-stuffed green olives and Dijon mustard.

Former White house chef Walter Scheib also told the outlet that he always kept Boca Burgers on hand for Hillary during her White House years, and that she also encouraged him to cook American cuisine instead of French-inspired food. Clinton has also said that lamb is her favorite meat, and during her White House time she was a fan of spicy foods as well as Middle Eastern flavors like hummus, baba ghanoush, and tahini. Since then, she’s said that she likes to eat jalapenos on the campaign trail.

As for what Hillary likes to cook, she once said, "I'm a lousy cook, but I make pretty good soft scrambled eggs." And we do know that she’s not a fan of pumpkin spice lattes.
