    I like my snacks crunchy.

    Okay, I must jump in here to represent Philly. Most of you West Coasters will probably have no idea what I’m talking about, but Tastykakes rule! Just to name a couple favorites: Peanut Butter Kandy Kakes and Butterscotch Krimpets. Little Debbie and the others cannot compare.

  3. Preston says:

    As a Mainer, it’s my duty to say: Whoopie Pies. Two round mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake with a sweet, creamy filling or frosting sandwiched between them.

  4. Jim says:

    Van Halen! Oh, wrong poll. Glock 19! Oh, wrong again.

    Watermelon, pistachios, grapes, bananas. God makes the best stuff…

  5. PP Vet says:

    Oh boy – you really know how to push the buttons.

    Chili Cheese Fritos
    Peanut M&Ms
    Utz Pub Mix, lose the pretzels.
    Sour Cream & Onion chips

    … and many others. 🙂

    Siaopao. (A steamed bread stuffed with sweet pork )
    Kendal ginger cakes
    Hostess cherry pie
    Thats enough……I’ve gained 5 pounds just typing this .

  8. Anita/Nonnie says:

    Ok, savoury and/or crunchy:
    *Guacamole and chips (freshly made)
    *Really crispy french fries and garlic mayonnaise (freshly made)
    *Hawaiian Bread stuffed with spinach/artichoke dip (not crunchy but oh so good)
    *Really good focaccia bread dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar

    Yea, I’m all about rockin’ the carbs! 🙂

    I think my favorite snack of all time is a fresh apple.

    But in a close second…is Cheetos Puffs…don’t hate

  10. Crowned1 says:

    Nonnie @ 6 “Siaopao. (A steamed bread stuffed with sweet pork )”

    Those are indeed yummy 🙂

  11. Paigemom says:

    Home made cookies….. just not very often….. but a wonderful organic local apple is heavenly!

  12. Muff Potter says:

    Just plain old-fashioned potato chips, like they were made before the world moved on (as Stephen King would write), no plethora of flavors, no frills, no apps, just the real McCoy.

  13. To name one or even a few would discriminatory against so many… So I say YES

  14. Xenia says:

    BBQ potato chips.

  15. Michael says:

    I’m with Dread…washed down with Mexican Coca Cola.

  16. Lutheran says:

    M&M with peanuts

  17. Must it really be said?!?!

  18. Solomon Rodriguez says:

    Little Debbie’s Nutty Bars, nuff said!

  19. Moon Pies
    and Nutty Bars

  20. I miss Hostess Twinkies, Cupcakes and Fruit Pies. 🙁

  21. Out here on the ship it’s hard tack, venison jerky, and the occasional lime to prevent scurvy.

  22. jlo says:

    Since I’m sweet enough as it is 🙄 I prefer salty snacks:

    Peanuts salted and roasted in the shell.

    Popcorn, buttered (real) and salted.

    Wasabi trek mix from trader joes.

    Kettle brand crinkle cut potato chips with salt and ground pepper.

    For something slightly sweet:

    Fresh strawberries with a mild white cheese.

    Fresh oranges dipped in melted dark chocolate.

    For the occasional splurge:

    Magnum bars, vanilla ice cream covered in dark chocolate with nuts.

  23. Reuben says:


    Do you remember the chocolate pie? I could die on those. That, and Cadbury Cream Eggs

  24. Jelly Belly’s (no imitation accepted)
    Beef Jerky.
    IBC Root Beer

  25. Pistachios
    Sunflower Seeds
    Bojangles Dirty Rice
    Tangy Taffy

  26. Reuben says:

    Cool Ranch Doritos.


  27. Reuben says:

    Jim, way back @4

    I much prefer the Glock 21. The 17L is a great piece, but hard to come by anymore.

  28. Almost forgot, licorice, but I can’t let myself have it too often ’cause I will buy it and proceed to devour it all.

  29. erunner says:

    Most of the snacks I have loved aren’t good for my diabetes. I could eat shelled and salted pistachios and sunflower seeds like they were Turkish Delight!

    I just bought a boatload of kale and our daughter is going to show me how to make kale chips which could be a godsend!

    In the past… raisinettes, snowcaps, do-nuts, cookies and milk, rootbeer floats, pork rinds, trail mix with many m&m’s and raisins.

  30. jlo says:

    ohhh, kale chips are really good.

  31. erunner says:

    jlo, What would you put on them? Our daughter raves about them.

  32. j2theperson says:

    Hersey’s bars
    Peanut Butter M&Ms
    Bean and cheddar chips
    Home-made honey sweetened french cream on pomegranate

    Also, I don’t love them but I can’t stop eating the raisins I get for my daughter.

  33. jlo says:

    just coat them in olive oil, and a good salt, either a kosher or pink hymalayan, and bake to directions. they satisfy the need for crunch and salt, but are ever so healthy.

  34. Ixtlan says:

    ok, since its required…..

    Quesadillas . I could live on them.

    Black Coffee. some days I live off it….

    Rainer cherries.

    Oatmeal-raisin cookies…. as long as the raisins are from California

    Peanut M&Ms

  36. mrtundraman says:

    To dialogue means to be convinced that the other has something good to say, to make room for his point of view, for his opinion, for his proposals without falling, obviously, into relativism. And to dialogue it is necessary to lower one’s defenses and to open the doors.

    People wonder why I post these silly topics…
