    >>> okay. we are paired all kinds of food with wine on this show. that's what we do. today we thought we would give our friend a challenge.

    >> ray is the executive editor of food & wine magazine and we asked him to pair wine with convenience store. food from a vending machine , gas station , or your neighborhood seven 11.

    >> this is doable. we're starting off simple. peanuts, pretzels and popcorn, salty things. with salt, i always go for sparkling wine . it -- even when it's dry it has sweetness and with salt it's a fantastic combination. this is from spain. you could go with champagne if you wanted to splurge. but come on it's popcorn.

    >> you think guys watching the game eati ining pretzels are going to drink champagne?

    >> i don't know but girls will.

    >> what goes with a sub?

    >> oh, that's good.

    >> all of these are under 15 bucks. one exception, that one is 17.

    >> look at that chnachos.

    >> i like this.

    >> forget the wine.

    >> have a sip of the wine. a sip of port. why not. you don't want something dry because the sweetness will make the dry wine more aggressive so you want a sweet wine .
