Cinnabons with their little pots of extra frosting!

Favorite snacks noted after reading entire thread... from Chocolate Cake and Bill Cosby's chant to Pillsbury Crescent Rolls? YES

Apple pie, in fact, any pie including pizza is great for breaking one's fast in the morning as long as it is accompanied by coffee before, during, after.

Wrist-deep in cheese puffs? Laughing

Twinkies and Hostess Cupcakes? Very Happy

Pink Ladies and Cashews? Drunk on nuts & fruit

Peanut Butter is a nearly perfect food.

Spicy Hot Wings & Blue Cheese Dressing!

Thanks to Diane for pointing out the chocolate is a bean. Without these important facts where would we be?? Shocked

Oh, Beth, the Thai food we had at HCE's pick of a Thai Place (Singa Thai II or something?). Yumm. In fact, was just thinking of that... I had the chicken with peanut sauce. As I said, the perfect food.

Oh. Suddenly makes more sense. That menu is 5 minutes away? And prices are in Canuck bucks? Remind me of that, OK, when I come to visit!

THAT thai menu is about 15 minutes away - the closest to me is less than 5 minutes - the dogs KNOW what that walk means! Yes, canajun $ ! I've accepted that Setanta loves canajun food prices about as much as he loves me <sigh>.

Fifteen minutes is not bad at all. First Thai Restaurant in Canada?

I love it when the dogs are excited about where they're off to. (We're off to Vaughn now to bring in the boat. The dogs just know!)

Woof, it's been a while since I ate like I did in the first post.

I do still snack, but it's more for dieting purposes (e. g. I have to fit in some sort of nutritional goal or whatever). No cheese nips and the like in the house whatsoever, although the popcorn-flavored rice cakes are quite tasty.

Thanks for reviving the topic, Endy.

@jespah,
A couple of months ago, I discovered the large jars of whole cashews at Sam's Club. After going through two of them in as many months, I made Mr. P swear that he would not let me buy any more of them. To me, those fat juicy nuts are as addictive as crack cocaine. I will wipe them from my memory..............................forever! Sad

@Phoenix32890,
I get my walnuts and almonds in big 3 pound bags from Costco once a year. (Hmm, not a member now, but the bags are still pretty full. Might have to ask a member friend..)

Anyway, I roast them about two cups at a time with spices, not as much salt as I'd love, but some, and a bit of olive oil. Last time I added three tablespoons and I can get away with less, think I'll try 1 1/2. I put the olive oil and spices in a dish, pour in the nuts and stir, put them out in a single layer on a pan or glass dish for the oven. Roasted them at 175 degrees since it said in something that I read that low temp keeps in the nutritionally good nut oil, for twenty minutes. I did that a few weeks ago, and I'm still working on them a handful at a time.

I do eat raw almonds or walnuts with or without a lesser amount of chocolate chips.. but I love the spiced ones, and I can fool around with spices. Thinking.. curry..

@ossobuco,
Trying to keep snacking to a minimum as I need to lose a few (cough) pounds. But I confess to keeping salted, roasted sunflower seeds on my desk at most times. They're in the shell though so it takes awhile to eat them.

Since a couple of months I'm on (organic) apple chips.
I really like them - and they're good for loosing weight, too.
