Prince keeps to himself mostly, which is why when The Heavy Table tried to find out what was in his fridge, there were some conditions. 1. No descriptions of his house or its location. 2. No photography. Despite those two things, the rock superstar still made for an incredibly compelling fridge subject.
Find out how he feels about Dunk-a-roos (remember those, '90s babies?), what he eats with yak milk, and what is the only thing he allows to touch his waffles...below:
– Dunk-a-roos, about 5 pounds’ worth
You may remember these from the early ’90s — packs of kangaroo-shaped cookies with chocolate or vanilla frosting used as a dipping sauce. The fridge had at least 10 different packages of the things, including out-of-print vintage varieties (double fudge cookies with strawberry frosting, for example).
About the Dunk-a-roos, he wrote:
“Don’t know what 2 say about Dunk-a-roos. They’re just good! Sometimes you want a food that is comfortable and takes you back. For me, it’s those crazy little kangaroo crackers.”
– Homemade kimchi
A large jar, clearly actually buried in someone’s back yard at some point. About a gallon.
“This stuff is AMAZING.”
– 18 varieties of mustard
Including German, Wisconsin, Californian, and Texan brands, plus a raspberry-flavored variety. The big question this raised: Is Prince a mustard collector? Does he hang out at Madison’s Mustard Museum? It’s worth noting that almost every container had been opened and showed signs of being enjoyed.
“I don’t collect it, but LOL yeah there’s a lot in there. U gotta love mustard. The raspberry kind is the best. You wouldn’t expect it but that’s how it goes.”
– Soy milk-based coffee creamer
“No cows were oppressed 2 make this righteous creamy creamer, U know? It’s really good! In coffee or whatever.”
– Microgreens, about one cubic foot’s worth
“So good with fig balsamic and a really good olive oil. I just munch on this stuff.”
We asked Prince, a known vegan, what he was doing with a log of Wisconsin Braunschweiger, a traditional German smoked pork liver sausage. We got no response. Maybe it’s for guests?
– Half a loaf of challah bread from Cecil’s Delicatessen
“Manny loves this stuff, that’s why I keep it around. I guess it’s good with any of the mustards, he says?!?!”
Editor’s note: We do not know who “Manny” is.
– Yak milk, one quart
“This stuff is TOO AMAZING. It clarifies your skin and your mind. It is given freely by the yak, so U can truly enjoy it. Great with Chex – Rice Chex, Wheat Chex, whatever!
– Real maple syrup, one gallon
“People say U can’t tell the difference, but U know, it’s the real deal. It’s a cut above. It’s about 100 cuts above. This is the only thing that touches my waffles.”
