Please, No More Chips.

I need a new snack. Chips and salsa are just not doing it for me anymore. Oatmeal Creme Pies are good for like a day before I get tired of them. And the animal crackers Lyndsey's mom got from Sam's are just lacking the flavor I need in a good afternoon snack. What kinds of things do you like? I know some of you are going to say an apple, or a banana, or something healthy; and that's ok, but it's something I already know. I'm looking for something new or something that's slipped my mind for the past few years. I love a snack with some good flavor, something that works with water, lemonade, or a coke. Something I can eat with my hands, from a bag or poured into a bowl, and definitely not something that takes an hour to make and is only good for one sitting. I don't mind spending time to make it if it will last a week or two. Any snack ideas?

They make these little 100 calorie baked snack packs and they are DELICIOUS.

oreo, chips ahoy, cheez-its, wheat thins, teddy grahams (those are great, etc.

they hit the spot.

also, fruit and nut trailmix bars are pretty good.

Sour Patch Kids are definitely a favorite, but not for a common occurrence. White Cheddar Crisps and 100 calorie snacks sound good. GOLDFISH! They are a classic. Today I'm gonna try and make some Chex Mix, courtesy chexmix.com. Next time I'll have to add some goldfish.

Nate, we're not in high school anymore. I still can't believe you could handle all those.

i eat goldfish - regular; mixture of raisins, peanuts, chocolate chips, and sunflower seeds. its great; pita chips; rold gold honey wheat braided twists; celery and peanut butter; popcorn cooked in my pot; some types of dry cereal such as oatmeal squares watch out for transfats in your processed snacks.
