What are you snacking on today?


#1

Share with the class please!

I am creating this thread purely to shout about caramel snack-a-jacks, though - I’ve had them before, but just swiped two from my daughter and they are SO much nicer than I remember. And 50ish cals each for those big flat ones.

\not sponsored by snackajacks but am open to offers if they’re reading

Home cooked meat, have a gammon joint and beef roasting joint pre-cooked and now sliced and in the fridge!


#3

Niceeeeee! That is some fancy snacking right there!


#4

I just find it hits the spot more than fruit or anything dry/carby… my mum has been eating TONS of these lately though… might be more up your street!


#5

Oooh, I’m all about the satsumas. BTW my theory on satsumas is that they’re like supporting a shit football team. For the majority of the time (i.e. 11 months out of the year) they’re really erratic - 1 great one and 4 mediocre ones for every 10 you eat. But then you get to Christmas and suddenly it’s that glorious cup rub time and the ratio rockets up so that you get 2 great ones and 5 mediocre ones for every 10 you eat.

Actually, maybe they’re more like a scratch card addiction. They also leave embarrassing stains under your finger nails, so there’s that too.


#6

Are you suggesting that I have an insatiable sweet tooth?!?!

(I love those, haven’t had one for an age though!)


#7

Also at Christmas they come in nice boxes! Do you know the difference between satsumas, clementines and tangerines? (Does anyone?!)


#8

@emma1 - my advice to you if you DO have a problematic sweet tooth is to stay away from Caramel Wafers!

Crack cocaine confectionary!


#9

Yep, it really wouldn’t be a wise move for me to buy a pack right now!


#10

OMG Snackajacks - have not had them in ages - got to the point where as I was living on these as a snack!

At the moment my go to is the fibre one 90 cal bars.


#11

Salt & Vinegar Snackajacks have to be up there with cashew nuts in terms of moreishnessability…


#12

I know that in America Mandarins and Tangerines are the same thing… think it’s all about the easypeel-ability :slight_smile:


#13

hang on, apparently tangerines, clementines and satsumas are all types of Mandarin?!


#14

Snack bars are a gateway drug. If I manage to convince myself that a Tracker won’t do me any harm then come 3pm I’m trying to get the final bits of sugar from a minipack of Haribo Tangfastics that the kids brought back from a party bag.


#15

Those multipacks of Drifters, Time Out, Tunnocks Teacakes etc always hit the spot and are under 100 calories or there abouts. The problem, of course, is stopping at one.


#16

The past 2 weeks, elevenses has been all boiled eggs, cheese strings, apples, dairylea dunkers.

No carby cereal bars or the suchlike, not even low calorie crisps.

Shame about the evening chocolate though. :joy:


#17

Pink N whites 50 cals each 6 in a pack!
2 is plenty as a snack.
Or soreen Halloween bars 100 calories each toffee apple or blood orange flavour.


#18

ooh Tangfastics… Up there with Gourmet Jelly Beans - crystal meth level sugar addiction products.


#19

Carb killa protein bar for me. I discovered it from MvF, recommended it to others and even fallen back in love with chocolate spread on toast - the Carb Killa one, not that garbage called Nutella!! :smirk::grimacing:


#20

is that the one from Myprotein @rkr786 ?
