Snackies!


I am trying to decide if I like these:



The "waves" themselves are thin and crispy and nummy, and although the cheesy goodness is, indeed, full of cheesy goodness, it is also a neon orange powder that makes my fingers look like I've been fingering a lesbian pumpkin. (Please do not ask me where that image came from.) I'm looking for an afternoon snack that isn't completely horrible for me (i.e., chocolate, pixie sticks, sugar cubes, ground glass, etc.), and the things I used to eat (Wheat Thins 5-Grain Crunch) are of course no longer made (because any foodstuffs I enjoy invariably stops being produced), so I need a replacement.

And now, I would like to enquire as to your thoughts on this earth-shattering topic.

Go.

D00d! Where did you get that image?!? (heh - I teases you).

I highly recommend Triscuit Thin Crisps, being whole wheat and not much else (oil, salt). Delicious and nutritious too.

I've seen them but haven't tried them. Salty and crunchy are good in the afternoons - keeps me away from sugary and melty. :D

I do like Sun Chips, but the harvest cheddar kind, which I like, are also covered in neon cheese.

The only fruit I really like to eat per se is apples, and veggies are right out. That's not what I really crave in the afternoons, though. Ugh.

Three immediate thoughts, only two of which are relevant:

1. My, LJ is...robust since the reboot.
2. Those look tasty.
3. (lecture time!) No food is "completely horrible for you," and if you eat something that you don't really want on the theory that it's what you "should" eat because it's "better" for you, well, it might satisfy your hunger but it won't satisfy your craving and you may well end up eating more of what you don't really want than you would have if you'd eaten what you wanted (chocolate, pixie sticks, sugar cubes) in the first place. If you have been eating ground glass, please see your doctor about Pica and also about getting your gastrointestinal system checked for punctures. (Just for the record, I don't recommend eating sugar cubes, either, unless you've first poured absinthe over them and set them on fire. The idea of eating a sugar cube makes my teeth hurt. But whatever floats your boat.)

Robust how?

And yes, they're tasty, just messy. I agree with your philosophy on food, though, which is why, if I'm going to have a craving, I want something I actually like that isn't completely horrible for me (ok, I'll cop to the chocolate, but I only put sugar cubes in my tea and ground glass in Q's coffee; I plead the fifth on pixie sticks).

Robust as in slow. Sorry, it's a JournalFen (Fandom_Wank) thing.

You don't honestly think I've forgotten the pixie sticks, do you? Dood. I was in Farrel's.

As far as the messy goes, one of my favorite crunchy snacks is Frito's honey bar-b-q twists, which leave your fingers looking like you murdered Chester Cheetah. So I don't feel qualified to comment.

Hmmm, sugar cubes. Haven't had one to suck on in a long while. Since I haven't found them in wrappers in a nice restaurant in a while, you know with tongs and a lid on the server.

Pretzel logs work for me some days. Sunflower seeds, but they get messy.

rice crispy treats this time of year, with granola and dried cranberries sound good to me. Might try to make some when I have cleaned the kitchen and some free time appears.

I figure pretzels are better than most stuff I could be eating. And I do like granola, but I've been trying to find the right mix of stuff I like and haven't yet. (I don't know if you remember or not, but I'm a damn picky eater.)

There's this amazing stuff that actually grows on trees! It's called "Fruit". Now, I *know* you know how to say that word, but this is the kind of fruit that Q won't mind you eating when he's not around... [grin]

It's not enough that you have me eating SALADS? Good god, man, what more do you want from me?

So this guy goes to the doctor and the doctor says "What's wrong?" and the guy says "My dick is orange!"

The doctor examines the neon member but can't find anything wrong with it.

"OK, lets try attacking this from a different direction. Are you having unprotected sex?"

"Nope."

"Trouble at work?"

"I'm currently unemployed."

"Anything wrong with your environment, your apartment?"

"No", says the guy. "Nothing."

The doctor is just flummoxed. "OK, Why don't you take me though a typical day."

"Well", says the man, "I normally get up around noon, throw some porn in the DVD player, and eat a bag of Cheetos."

OK, no matter where you got the image, its another three months of therapy to remove it from my brain.

If you must have orange fingers, get the original stuff.

...I've been fingering a lesbian pumpkin.

That needs to be on a t-shirt.

I've been snacking on Linvilla Orchards apple wedges dusted with cinnamon.
