WARNING: Video contains explicit language and violence.

MANHATTAN — Eat your hearts out, snack-loving ladies.

The hungry hero caught on cell phone video breaking up a subway fight without taking a bite out of his snacking time said he's received "about 50" messages — including marriage proposals — from interested ladies since the "Snackman" clip went viral earlier this week.

Charles "Snackman" Sonder, 24, a designer who works on the Lower East Side and now has his own Snack-Signal, confirmed that he's single — but said he doesn't need help from his alter ego to land dates.

"I get enough girls without 'Snackman's' help," he said.

As two angry straphangers traded kicks on the 6 train as it passed through SoHo, "Snackman" is seen in the video posted on YouTube April 2 stepping between the fighters, breaking up the ruckus while nonchalantly continuing to munch chips.

Girls looking to be "Snackman's" Little Debbie took to the internet to express their affection.

"Snack man is cute," YouTube user good2btheking wrote in a comment on the video. "Any more videos of him consuming snacks?"

"He is sooooo fine omg i wanna sex him up lol," user medryl wrote.

Twitter user @KStoeffel inquired about whether "Snackman" was single, but said she wasn't the one who needed a snack-sensitive wingman.

"Asking for every other warm-blooded Fort Greene snacker," she wrote.

YouTube user CinemaObsessed suggested skipping the dating for wedded bliss.

"Snack Man, will you marry me?" the user wrote.  

Sonder, who lives in Brooklyn, said he hasn't responded yet to any of the queries, but he gave his would-be Ms. Snackmans reason to dream.

"Who knows. Maybe someone will stand out of the crowd," he said.
