Vanilla Ice Cream

Although you may remember Eleven munching on a pint of strawberry ice cream, off-screen, the star loves vanilla. "So we were on set, and they asked what flavor I wanted. I told them I prefer light vanilla, but I asked what looks better on camera," Brown told Bon Appétit. "They said strawberry. Ugh, that is my worst flavor."

Starbucks' Tall Vanilla Latte


The 18-year-old actress stays energized during her busy days with coffee. "I drink coffee. I drink lattes. People are like 'It stunts your growth!' Listen, let it stunt my growth. It tastes good. It's sure to wake me up in the morning," she told Bon Appétit. Her go-to coffee order? A tall vanilla latte from Starbucks. Brown also loves her specialty lattes, like the beautiful latte art she posted on Instagram.


caesar salad

Brown raves about the salads on set for Stranger Things. "I have Caesar salad. Mixed salads. There's always such good salads on set, all the time," she told Bon Appétit. There are plenty of healthy salad recipes, but be sure to check out Jennifer Anniston's "perfect" salad.

You may be thinking that this is a new McDonald's menu item—well, think again. It's actually a special salad snack pack, made by someone on the set of Stranger Things. "It's a little salad that's jam packed with tomato, ham, avocado, and hot sriracha. It's really really good, and I'll have them in the middle of the set," Brown told Bon Appétit. Brown is a big fan of ham, telling Bon Appétit that if she did steal something from a supermarket, it wouldn't be Eggos like Eleven—"I'd probably go for really nice ham."

Carrots & Hummus

Besides the McCod, Brown also likes snacking on carrots and hummus. When asked what her favorite snack food is in an interview with Variety, the star said: "Carrots and hummus. That's like a treat for me." Previous Eat This, Not That! reporting shows that hummus has plenty of health benefits, including potential weight loss, stabilized blood sugar, and a healthy microbiome.
