    Default Speaking of Snacks

    Personally, I munch on original Oreos and dark chocolate Pocky. I prefer chocolate over any type of candy, but cannot stand the sweetness of the lighter variety, so I tend to opt for dark chocolate. I also like daifuku, though its cost here is really offputting. =(

    Locally, there are these sort of pastries that represent the center of donuts (gotta recycle right?) called Timbits that I really like as well.


    So how do I go a step beyond the purchase and consumption of these snacks? Well, to maintain their status as a snack, I keep my preparation to a minimum. That is, I just throw everything into vanilla ice cream! Works surprisingly well, bringing tasty results.

    What are your favourites? Anything local or interesting to share? Or, to engage to chefs of the forum, how do you prepare your snacks?

    Timbits? I'm pretty sure that's only what Tim Hortons' calls them. Everyone else calls them donut holes.

    Aren't they munchkins at Dunkin Donuts? Anyway, snacks? Gotta be either whole wheat chips by lays, or some form of chips. If its sweet, its gotta be a bag of Swiss wafer bites. Holy moly are those divine.

    Fruit snacks are great, but not healthy. Not with the way we boil them in this syrupy style broth.

    I have no idea what they're called at other chains. I never even knew the existed elsewhere.

    I only know them as Munchkins, thanks to Dunkin' Donuts. Otherwise I just call them doughnut holes. Which I do love. <3 The picture is making my mouth water.
    back to being a non-edible pastry

    At Wal-Mart you can buy these packages of freeze dried strawberries and bananas (Like, in the same package) and they are delicious.

    Plus you get to feel like an astronaut while you munch on 'em!

    Chips with Tabasco sauce. I exercise a lot so I can afford to be really unhealthy with my food.
