Probably something small and chewy- crispy does not stand up to humidity
well, or at all.

I don't know where and when *you're* from, but here in England in the 
early 13th century we bathe fairly regularly! With soap! And sometimes we 
even have snacks during the bath! Also there is a reference to a portable 
or travel bathtub in, IIRC, the household accounts of Joan de Valence, 
Countess of Pembroke. So one could argue bringing a large tub and bathing 
at Pennsic...

OB food content: bathing snacks! Finger foods! Has anyone ever found 
any references to what sort of snacks are appropriate for consumption 
during the bath?
