A bouquet of rods for you on this, National Pretzel Day.

They are Rold Gold — only the best will do.

Liquid lunch

People magazine is all about the ‘boozy popsicle‘ today —

watermelon mojito pops‘Boozy’ as in popular popsicle flavors spiked with alcohol — like the watermelon mojito pops garnished with mint pictured at the left.

Looks cool and refreshing, yes…and perhaps a bit lethal for the younger set.

But, I’m sorry.

Every time I hear the phrase ‘boozy popsicle,’ I think —

What a perfect stripper name.

Or maybe even the name of a band (depending on what kind of music they play). Let’s not forget that one, folks.

It’s a keeper.

Taste test

I am watching ESPN, and a commercial for Cheez-Its just aired.

You’ve probably seen it.

Scientists are testing cheese to make sure it is mature…because only aged cheddar goes into Cheez-Its.

I don’t know.  The immature cheese sounds like a lot more fun.  I think it would taste better, too.

These are the important issues that occupy my big brain.

Flavorless

Only a few US states have official snacks.

South Carolina has boiled peanuts. Texas chose chips and salsa. Lucky Illinois has popcorn and Utah has Jell-O.

yogurtYesterday Governor Andrew Cuomo named the official snack for New York as…

YOGURT

Now, I know that New York produces a lot of dairy products, and that yogurt is a healthy snack choice.

But that is the most depressing official state snack ever.

New York isn’t smooth and creamy and vanilla and boring.  We’re every color of the rainbow and loud and crunchy.  You’d probably break a tooth on a snack that really represented our state.

Yogurt?  I mean, seriously…that’s embarrassing.

I may have to move.

A kernel of truth

Did you celebrate National Popcorn Day?

I did.

For one thing, I created this nifty sign.

Popcorn Day 2014

More importantly, I saw Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit and ate nasty good movie popcorn.

This really should be a weekly event.

Stack ’em

Lately, I have been craving Pringles.

This vintage TV commercial makes them look even better.

You go, Brad.

Cheetos fingers

Cheetos, already the perfect food, is going beyond the puff this Halloween with…

Glow-in-the-Dark Cheetos

glow in the dark cheetos(A special thank you to my sister for bringing this ghoulish taste treat to my attention.)

While Googling the aforementioned dark delight, I happened upon an even scarier, orange-ier, more artificial — if indeed that is possible — product that has the potential to scare the begeezers out of folks year round…

cheeto fingernailsCheetos nails, baby!

Look at that color!  Look at that texture!  And if it chips off (chips off, get it?!) —

It’s still cleaner than real Cheetos fingers.

Warning: this is very cheesy

Time to use your great big noodle,
And celebrate the famed cheese doodle!

Better than cheesecake or strudel,
The dusty, yummy puffed cheese doodle!

Got yourself a cockapoodle?
Those pups love crunching their cheese doodle!

What’s for lunch? Just oodles and oodles
Of that beloved snack — cheese doodles!

HAPPY NATIONAL CHEESE DOODLE DAY

Gone fishin’

I woke up this morning with a powerful craving…

Goldfish crackers

I’m not sure what prompted it, but it’s here.  And I have no choice but to satisfy it.  The question is —

Will one goldfish cracker do the trick?

Uh, no.

Instead, I must consider…

This many.

Seems prudent, seems sensible.  But I wonder if a handful of goldfish crackers will satisfy my craving…or just piss it off?

Make it angrier?

You don’t want to mess with an awesome craving…especially for salty, cheesy goodness that is the goldfish.

Oh yeah.

That’s more like it.

Here, fishy fishy.
