Things I've Been Snacking On

I like food.

I like to eat.

Therefore, I decided to write an entry on the stuff I’m currently snacking on.




Yum. Easter treats. Those dipped Peeps rock and the Peepsters are delicious. Not pictured: Cadbury Crème Eggs. It’s because I already ate them by the time I took the pictures. I’ve lost count on how many I’ve consumed. (10? 20? Who knows?)




I haven’t seen Berry Berry Kix in years! Maybe I just hadn’t been looking…normally I stick to the cereals with marshmallows and sprinkles. (Hi, I’m Amber, I’m 28 and I don’t eat cereal that looks like tree bark..) (I also don’t like cereal with nuts in it. Ew.) Anyway, I wandered into the healthier section and was like, “Berry Berry Kix!” Although they aren’t as good as I remembered. The corn puffs used to be in the shape of actual berries. Now they are all balls. (Teehee.) But still. Boo.




This popcorn by Orville Redenbacher is awesome. You don’t even have to mess up a dish! It’s already in a bowl. Sweet. I like anything that saves me a dish.





Er. This isn’t a snack. It just made me laugh. Star Jones is all sorts of crazy on The Celebrity Apprentice this season. I snack while watching it. That’s how this picture fits in. Yeah. We’ll go with that.





These are a given. My beloved Dunkaroos that I thought were gone forever. A fabulous snack.




Are you a fan of the cheese flavored goldfish? Then try these! Vanilla cupcake flavored goldfishes! They taste like a sweeter version of Nilla wafers.


And PS—don’t worry, my kids (and I) do eat healthy foods. It’s just, these are more entertaining to talk about. It’s not as interesting to take a picture of grapes and be all, “Yeah. We’re eating grapes. Yum.”

Still, I’m never going to eat cereal that looks like tree bark. Or sticks.

  1. Berrt Berry Kix was way better when they had the berry shaped pieces. All balls? how boring (wow, that sounded dirty!) and I loved Dunkaroos!!! I need to see if the lovely state of Oregon still has them around..

  4. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who noticed the difference in Berry Berry Kix. I LOVED it when I was younger and was so excited when I saw it at the store (you are right, they haven't had them for a while) and it's SO NOT the same. Not only are the berries the wrong shape, but they don't taste as... berry-ish. What a let down :(

  12. MUCH AGREED on not eating cereal that has nuts and tree bark! And in Weight Watchers all cereal is worth the exact same amount of points...so why not get your berry berry kix on?? :)

  13. In 20 years you will think tree bark cereal is a gift from heaven!

  14. I like cereal with almonds :) But my current favorite has been Cinnamon Cheerios.

  15. Peeps? Ooooooo - I think they taste yucky, unless their little butts are roasted over a campfire.

    ReplyDelete
  16. I always eat the off brand Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Love. And I recently bought a big box of Cap'n Crunch. mmmm, I eat like a bachelor.

  17. I must have that popcorn! We love popcorn around here but I can't stand the bowl mess. You have just solved a huge-major-ginormous problem in our house!!!! #firstworldproblem

  18. Those Dunkaroos look yummy - I will investigate.

    My all time favorite is Tato-Skins. A chip of sorts. I think that's what they're called. I love the plain ones and they are really hard to find these days. Good thing cuz I just inhale them.

  19. Berry berry Kix is AWESOME! Not all stores carry it tho. I scoop it up whenever I see some!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I am right there with you on the easter candy, ESP those dadgum cadburry eggs. The orange cream ones they have out this year are fan-freakin-tastic!!

    Just bought a box of the berry berry kix myself. Nostalgia made me do it.

    Try to keep yogurt, fruit, goldfish, pretzels, gingersnaps, and homemade pop corn always on hand. If I buy other stuff I tend to eat way to much of it.

    I have never heard of dunkaroos. Will have to look around and see if I can find them.

  21. I love Easter candy! I'm been snacking like crazy too.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I must find these new goldfish! OH HECK YEAH!

    And we have been addicted to these 3 Musketeers Marshmallow minis that are out for Easter. THEY ARE FABULOUS!

  23. LOVE peeps! I tried to buy that popcorn at Walmart and they were all out! That's the danger of living in a college town!

  25. Have to say, I do enjoy a bowl of Raisin Bran. But I'm more than likely to choose a bowl of Count Chocula or Coco Puffs instead. Because I'm almost 32 and still eat like a 12 year old.

    I love the cheesy goldfish, but I don't know about cupcake-flavored. That might be pushing it.

  26. I'm a big snacker, give me salty! This is a fun post.I enjoyed my visit to your lovely blog. Hugs!

  27. I'm loving the chocolate covered peeps and Cadbury eggs!!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Great Amber - way to make me crave stuff! ;-) Now instead of healthy tree bark I want something sugary and covered in chocolate!

    Oh who am I kidding - I always crave something sugary and covered in chocolate....unless I'm craving something salty and crunchy!

  29. The good thing about living overseas is that I don't have any access to this type of American junk food, so it keeps the diet in check...the bad thing about living overseas? I don't have access to this type of American junk food! I seriously would hoard a year's worth of Peeps if I could get them (and if they would cost less than $20 a pack even if they DID show up here!).

    I like to snack on the Frosted Cheerios, because it tastes so sweet and frosted, but I can trick myself into believing that it's healthy because it's Cheerios.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think they just brough back the berry Kix, because I've been looking for them for a while now. I totally did a happy dance when I saw them at Wal-mart the other day :-) But I agree, they aren't as good as they used to be.

    ReplyDelete
  31. hahaha this was great! It's nice to see another fellow snacker admit all the snacking. I'm such a snacker and i could care less if i ever eat an actual meal. lol

    ReplyDelete
  32. I did NOT need to know that the chocolate covered Peeps were delicious. I was trying to avoid them by convincing myself that they couldn't be as good as the originals. Obviously that is going to have to be put to the test.

    (Oh - and if you're like me and buy truck loads of Peeps on sale after Easter but them cannot stomach anymore - - - make rice krispie treats with them.... colorful and DELICIOUS!!!)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Nom nom nom! All that looks almost as good as the Whoppers Robins Eggs I keep stuffing my face with.
    And OMG. I recently read a blog in which the made Smores with Peeps! Guess what we're doing tomorrow night?!

    ReplyDelete
  34. YUMMO! I love the pizza blast Goldfish they are my FAVORITE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Mmmm now I'm hungry. You made me laugh when you said "Yeah. We're eating grapes. YUm". LOL!!!

  36. Chocolate covered peeps are an abomination. 11th commandment:

    "Thou shalt not cover the golden peep before thee, yea not in chocolate nor candy coating. Thus it is written. Thus shall it be."

    ReplyDelete
  37. Hi, I love the Cadbury Creme Eggs too! They are just too delish! Also, have you ever had the orange flavored chocolate sectioned candy that is shaped like an orange? It is usually in the stores around Christmas time. You can find them in Walmart, and also CVS and WAlgreens. They come in a little square box and you have to kind of smash the orange top so that it breaks into sections. A company called "Terry's" makes them, YUM!

  38. Oy. The Berry Berry Kix picture has me steamed all over again. I called them to tell them that this latest change is so not for the better.

    It should say:

    New Look!
    Half the taste!

    First they flattened the berries, then they turned them into balls *snicker* that had good flavor. Then they sucked all the color AND flavor out of them. WTH? I'm sure they are now calling me the Krazy Kix Lady. Whatevs. Just fix the damn cereal.

    Your other snacks are making me seriously hungry. Must check out Celeb. Apprentice to see the Star craziness.

  39. My kids bought me caramel Dove chocolates for my bday. They are LONG gone...

  40. Thank you for erasing all my willpower today. I will now be snacking on Twinkies and Cheese Nips the entire day. I hold you responsible. =]
