If You’re Feeling Snacky

I have snacking issues.

I didn’t used to, particularly.  It was creeping up on me, but I had it mostly under control until my hubby took me to the Utah Shakespearean Festival and we bought snacks for our hotel room.  Now, I do 99% of the grocery shopping, usually with a child or two in tow; they see what I buy, and that serves as a pretty good built-in restraint.  My hubby, on the other hand–let’s just say he did nothing to save me from myself.  Suddenly there were all of these delightful snacks, and ever since then I’m been struggling to try and reign myself back in, because a snacking habit gathers momentum frighteningly fast, especially when combined with a curiosity about how new things taste.

On the other hand, I can offer you some suggestions, if you’re looking for something snacky and coming up dry.  If you want savory, I have to say that the new Smoked Gouda Triscuits are tasty, and the Fire Roasted Tomato and Olive Oil variety continue to be delightful; the Mediterranean Style Olive ones are a bit much for me, but if you love Kalamata olives, you probably want to give them a try.  The new Lays Smoked Gouda and Chive chips are delightful as well (although the Korean BBQ kind are strange and the herby ones are a little much).

If you want sweet, on the other hand, may I suggest the Dark Chocolate Covered Coconut Almonds at Costco?  AND the Lemoncello Almonds, although I’m not sure they’re available at all locations. Cinnamon Bun Oreos are tasty as well (as are the Red Velvet ones, although they may just be a Valentine’s thing).

What are YOUR favorite snacky foods?
