Default American Munchies

A colleague just came back from a US holiday and bought a selection of munchies back. I've never had these Chips Ahoy! cookies before but damn they were good with my morning coffee:



If anyone comes to London, bring a couple of boxes with you!

He also bought back some Hersheys - it was nice....to be reminded how damn disgusting those things are.

My boss (another guy with a weird accent from Scotland) thinks Hershey's is terrible.

hahaha, I agree. Chips Ahoy are horrible. I don't think they even use real chocolate. Perhaps I need to send you some real ones.

Ha! On the basis that most munchies people bring back from the States suck, these things were awesome!

Someone bought some Ho Ho's back recently, they sucked, along with Ding Dongs which were equally poor! Come to think of it you lot have dumb words for munchies. In the UK we're too politically correct (Otto would disagree based on having known me for a few years), but in Italy I came across 'Sadam Sugar' - I laughed so much I may even have a photo of it!!!!

Come on man! Peanuts are full of protein and good fats with lots of fiber. Legumes are good for ya! And the combination with chocolate can't be beat.

Walkers crisps in the UK have bought out some interesting new special edition flavours including chilli and chocolate. The most interesting has to be.....wait for it......Cajun Squirrel, check it:



So what was the marketing meeting like that covered this? "So what can we do to make these squirrel flavour crisps more interesting?" "I know, lets make them Cajun!"

They are gross by the way!!

Just go ahead and have the chili built right in. My sons will devour a bag of these in seconds.
