Sydney Sweeney is a star on the rise. Thanks to her performances on hit shows like The White Lotus and Euphoria, millions of people are watching her every move. Loyal fans want to know her likes and dislikes and even have a vested interest in what she eats. So what food are staples in Sweeney’s diet, and what food has she become obsessed with in recent years?
The Players Table star hasn’t made it a secret that she has a sweet tooth. While giving a tour of the Euphoria set, Sweeney was overjoyed when a member of the crew brought her some warm cookies. As the Washington native doesn’t drink coffee, she often relies on sugar and candy to give her the burst of energy that she needs while she’s filming.
Candy and sugar are a part of Sydney Sweeney’s diet
“I eat sugar, so it balances out,” Sweeney shared when talking about her diet in an interview with Bustle. “Instead of coffee, I’ll have some Swedish Fish or anything gummy if I’m tired.” Sweeney has also expressed her love for some of America’s favorite foods via her social media pages. The Sharp Objects alum has more than one Instagram photo with pizza, burgers, fries, and other delicious foods.
But there’s one food that Sweeney has developed an affinity for. In an interview with Story + Rain, the actor revealed that she’d developed a kind of obsession with truffles. She loves them infused in all sorts of dishes, regardless of whether they are savory or sweet.
The ‘Euphoria’ star talks about how she developed a love of truffles
“I’m really into truffles,” Sweeney shared about the mainstay in her diet. “I went to Oak Tuscan Truffle Lounge here in New York and I had a truffle burger, truffle spaghetti, truffle roasted potatoes, and a truffle dessert…it was the most amazing meal. I’d recently gotten into truffle meats and cheeses, and this meal took it to a whole new level. But it started with my favorite restaurant in California, Wally’s. They have this amazing meat and cheese platter.”
Continuing on, Sweeney revealed how her food preferences have shifted throughout the years. “In the past year, I’ve opened up to food,” she said. “I used to be a really picky eater, and for whatever reason, my palette has changed and I’m really into food now. So I’ve been trying a lot of things, and truffles have really stuck with me.”
Why Sweeney only drinks water
But while Sweeney’s palette for food may have expanded in recent years, her beverage diet remains a strict one. The Handmaid’s Tale alum doesn’t drink alcohol or even juice. In fact, Sweeney rarely lets herself have any drink that isn’t water. The actor made a pact with herself when she was just a kid and has managed to keep in for the last 14 years.
“I only drink water — for whatever reason, when I was like, 12, I decided I would only drink water and I just stuck with it,” Sweeney told Bustle. “I love water, it’s my thing.”
