The Munchies

As I've mentioned before, I go through phases with food. I'll have a craving for something, fall in love with it and then eat it until I get burnt out on it. I know. It's weird. Anyway, here are my current addictions. To see my past ones, click here.

Tell me what you're devouring these days. Maybe you can introduce me to a new flavor sensation!

Speaking of, I don't know how long they've been around, but I just discovered Lay's Cheddar & Sour Cream Flavored Potato Chips! OMG, orgasmic. Also, if you haven't tried Lucerne's French Onion and Bacon chip dip, it's a staple too. I fell in love with it the first time I had it at one of my Halloween parties waaaaay back in the 80's. It's still as delicious today as it ever was!


A. Hormel Beef Roast Au Jus. Fully cooked roast beef. Heats in 4 minutes in the microwave or boil-in-the-bag for 10-12 minutes. No creepy gristle. Tastes like fresh roast you've been simmering all day in the crockpot. Makes excellent French Dip Sandwiches (*see recipe).

B. Campbell's Chicken Won Ton Soup. Excellent with some crispy French's French Fried Onions sprinkled on top. Contains less sodium (try more than half) than my old favorite, Maruchan brand Chicken Wonton, which contains 1,470mg.

C. Grimmway Carrot Chips. A great side for your French Dip Sandwich. Also a great snack when you want something crunchy. They are great in a Cucumber Salad. I like to add some red bell pepper and instead of making a foo-foo red wine vinaigrette, I just use a few dashes of Kraft's Zesty Italian salad dressing. Delicious!

D. Fresca Sparkling Peach Citrus Soda. I like the original Fresca. It's "okay," but I LOVE the taste of their new peach flavor! Soooo crisp and clean with a great peach taste, but not too sweet, unlike Peach Nehi. I mean Nehi is good, but Fresca is better. They also have another new flavor: Black Cherry. Me no likee the flavor cherry (ironic?), but you might wanna check it out.

E. Mott's Apple Sauce (Original flavor). Smooth, cool, delicious. Nice to dip cinnamon toast in.

F. Dole Fruit Gel Bowls (Pineapple chunks in green 'gel'...since apparently "Jell-O" is a trademarked term). I was bored and creeping down all the aisles in the grocery store, scrutinizing all the products and stumbled across these. Really good! A great snack. I also bought some of those Mott's Magic Mix-Ins. They're little individual servings of apple sauce that come with a packet of "magic" mix-ins (i.e. Pop Rocks) that change the apple sauce into green "Wizard Watermelon"-flavored apple sauce and red-swirled "Poppin' Berry."

G. Giant Smarties. OMG, I am lovin' these! If you haven't seen them yet, they are just like the regular Smarties we all grew up with, but they are super-sized. Roughly the size of a quarter. The pineapple ones (the white ones) are my favorite! Mmmmm! I found these at the local Hollywood Video, but I've since seen them other places as well.

The Hormel beef au jus is awesome, I love it with some little red potatoes and carrots. Mmmm. I also go through times I want that Won Ton soup, then I'll want the Campbell's Chicken and Dumpling soup, the dumpings are little marshmallow shaped dumplings that taste pretty darn good with some potato chips or saltines.

I like the mandarin oranges in gel, too, super yummers!

My recent binging includes Milky Way candy bars (Fun Size), that super thin sliced luncheon meat (roast beef) with provolone cheese on Hillbilly Bread, cheeseburger hot pockets, Chicken and Stars soup,apples and cinnamon instant oatmeal.

Nccountry-
Mmmmm. I loooove cheese sticks. Which reminds me, I wish I'd tried the fried cheese curds they were selling at the State Fair. I bet they were good!

Ooh, I looked up those Land O Lakes Snack 'n Cheese to Go things. They do look good! Sometimes nothing hits the spot more than a nice back of fresh Saltines and some cheese. Thanks for the heads up! I also love the Moo Town String Cheese! Mmmmmm!

Thanks for commenting! :)

Terri-
Red potatoes! THAT'S what I was missing. You can't beat red potatoes and roast! Mmmmm!

And speaking of the Campbell's Chicken 'n Dumplings, if you like their dumplings, then you will love their wontons. They're the same thing, only bigger. Mmmmm wontontacular!

I haven't tried the mandarin oranges in gel yet. Sounds good. I wish I could find my favorite combo: peaches in cherry gelatin. Yum!

I haven't heard of Hillbilly Bread! I looked it up and saw the wrapper though. "It's Colossal!" You must send me an empty wrapper! I mean it.

When you mentioned apples, I forgot, I'm also eating a lot of grannysmith apples lately. I'm actually considering melting some candy corn and dipping some apple slices in it! It just sounds good to me for some reason. Plus, it'll give me a reason to get out the ol' fondu pot!

Thanks for commenting! I wanna see Hillbilly Bread!!!! :D
