"But they're organic."

And with those sarcastic words said about tater tots, which were about to be put on breakfast tacos, we knew Lorelai and Rory Gilmore's appetites had not changed at all in Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life, which picked up nine years after the events of the 2007 series finale. And almost a decade later, our ladies still believe any meal is made better with Pop-Tarts and night-time Chinese is the more important meal of the day, though they're still working on that whole coffee IV thing.

Because their diets have become infamous, we cataloged everything Lorelai and Rory ate in each of the revival's four episodes. So break out your desk snacks and your stretchiest pants, you're going to need them...
