Saturday Foto: The Greatest Snacks

Sometimes you've just got to snack. I get the feeling everyday. It's something about sitting at my desk wrestling with AutoCAD that just works up a mean appetite.

It's been a struggle finding just the right thing to munch on while I work: I routinely go through bags of baby carrots, Frosted Mini Wheats, Apple Jacks, General Mills Fruit Snacks (Thanks Taber!!) and ritz crackers.

There is one snack though, that continues to trump all others. This has been my gourmet treat for a long time. I remember sitting as a missionary in my pad overlooking Greene Street in Ridgewood, Brooklyn and snacking on this while I studying The Book of Mormon. Oh yes, I'm talking about M&Ms and Raisins.

This is what I turn to when I REALLY want to treat myself to something special. I just mix about 2 parts raisins to 1 part Peanut Butter M&Ms in a office breakroom paper cup, shake, and bring on the bliss!

I will have to admit right here and now, that this is my all-time favorite snack.

So if you read this and think there's something better, let's here it! I want to know what other good snacks I haven't thought of yet are out there... I'm always willing to try something new!

I really like pretzels dipped in cream cheese and carrots dipped in hummus. Great flavor combos and I love the crunch. Not quite as fun as M&M's and raisins though ; )

Brian will totally be disagreeing with you. He hates raisins. I'm sure the PB M&Ms alone would suffice though!

Brian Hanks said...

Hmmm...suggestions for something better...

How about ANYTHING WITHOUT RAISINS!!!!

I introduced my co-workers to carrots dipped in refried beans the other night. They were big fans :) The only downside sometimes comes a few hours later...

Kevin, I love raisens and M&M,s. Never put thrm together though. I can't eat candy anymore though. Still eat raisen's though and if I'm not supposed to I don't want to know about it.
By the way Brooklyn is beautiful.

PB M&M's and raisins? I will have to try that. Sounds like raisinettes on steroids. Yummo. Can't think of anything too great, but lately I have liked baking Ritz crackers with a bit of honey on it. It is a delicious combo of sweet and salty. Suppose you need an oven at work for that though. They're only good when they're hot out the oven.

There's a food vendor on our soi that sells a variety of deep fried, glazed and salted insects and other bugs mid-metamorphosis... To me they look like piles of crickets, scorpions, maggots, beetles, things with wings, lots of legs and generally brown. The little cart has a single bulb shining light onto the once crawling or squirming "snacks". I've only eaten this "treat" once or twice and just because I was trying to be polite when offered...folks here grab a bag full when drinking with friends or just when sitting by a river enjoying the scenery. Personally I think it'd be better and more familiar if they mixed it with two parts raisins!
