Jon Stewart Loves Burgers and Shakes, But Hates Aioli

On today’s Jon Stewart Reddit AMA he revealed his favorite, and least favorite foods

Whatever you do, don’t feed Jon Stewart garlic aioli.

He may spend most of his time critiquing the craziness of American politics, but The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart is all-American when it comes to chowing down. In Jon Stewart’s recent Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything), he revealed that his favorite foods are pretty simple American classics: cheeseburger, fries, and a milkshake; pizza; and steak and mashed potatoes. “I’m not the most adventurous of eaters, so keep that aioli sh*t away from me,” Stewart quipped in the online informal interview.

And speaking of burgers, Stewart was also asked the all-important question, “what would be on a Jon Stewart burger?” Dill pickle chips, coleslaw, nice slab of cheese, and a little Russian dressing. Mmmm, a Reuburger… we could go for that.

Stewart also explained why he prefers waffles to pancakes: “It depends on what you're talking about in terms of fillings. I feel that the waffle is... a strong conduit for a fruit-based or a sweet-based addition. It's somehow — in terms of waffle-to-filling ratio — more robust.”


And of course, Stewart answered for probably the 5,000th time that no, he will not be running for presidential office in 2016.
