To put Kroll's feelings in more personal context, we asked Kroll to give us the top 5 things that bring him the most happiness. In no particular order, they were:
- Friends and family
- The Internet
- Pigs in a blanket
- Dancing to LCD Sound System
- Take 5 bars
Clearly, this is more than just a candy crush -- those are really serious things. However, Kroll, who unsurprisingly also loves sports analogies, demurs when asked which ingredient he prizes most. Instead he maintains that it's more appropriate to think of how, as with that basketball team the U.S. sent to Barcelona in 1992, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts even though the parts are some of the best parts to ever play the game/be eaten at 4:17pm when you're really hungry but it's too early even for old-folks dinner.
While the genuineness of Kroll's affection appears to be unimpeachable, the comedian does admit that being a cult follower of an under-appreciated snack food does provide a certain amount of hipster cred. "I’m not a big music guy, so for me Take 5 is like being into an obscure indie band," says Kroll. "So your friends are like, 'Oh I love the Arctic Monkeys,' and I’m like, 'Well I love Take 5 candy bars.'"
