nom – snackle mouth

Twitter is pretty amazing sometimes.   A few weeks ago after a stop into Fresh Market I tweeted something and almost instantly got this response:

No, it wasn’t from Fresh Market, but another product that I had actually seen at the store during that trip.   I had noticed Snackle Mouth by the checkout but didn’t really take much time to investigate what it was.   Honestly, good packaging had grabbed my eye.  Perfect timing!  The convo continued

I’m all for “something special” when it comes to food (and vegan at that) so the next time I was at Fresh Market I picked up a box, snapped my pic, and enjoyed Snackle Mouth:

The Almond Maple Pecan was amazing.   Not too sweet, not too heavy, it’s a great snack.   If I wasn’t so greedy (aka had better portion control) I bet I could make a box last a few days.   This one lasted an afternoon.   Awesome.

Anyway I had forgotten that I had sent a pic to Snackle Mouth and was so excited to discover my little package from them for taking the pic, it showed up last Friday:

Mmmmmm.    This was some serious snacking.   I wanted to take a pic of the delicious clusters, but my offer to co-workers meant the Snackle Mouth was gone pretty quickly.   The top 2 faves were the Salty Chocolate and Almond Berry.    Great office snack.

I’m stoked to have found Snackle Mouth.   Sure they sent me some freebies but I’ve purchased several boxes (about $3.50 for a 5oz box) and can honestly say I’m a fan.  It’s just good.   When I’m trying hard at my vegan experiment, it’s great to know that there’s a yummy snack I can turn to.   And for my non-vegan bacon loving fans, check this out:

i’ve been distracted

So the lovely Krystal inspired me to update my little blog.  I love my corner of the web but I’ve just been distracted with work, family stuff, feeling chubby and scruffy.   So here’s what’s up.

I can explain the chubby part.  Snacks.  I really try hard to stay away from sweets but when I fail I fail hard.  I tried a bite of a Cadbury Cream Egg BAR that someone sent to the station.  Yes, a whole bar o’Cadbury Egg, that’s how they roll in the UK.   I’m pretty sure this bite sized piece had about 2,000 calories, and totally not vegan.   It was amazing.

When the circus came through we checked it out from the nosebleed section at the TU.  Seriously if you ever want the best seat in the house, go upper level, it was awesome.

Fit into an 8 year old t-shirt.  No really, that’s amazing that it still fits.  My metabolism was on warp speed 8 years ago.

Frightened a Starbucks drive-thru peep with this crazy ass knot I got stuck in my hair while trying to rearrange my ponytail.   I know, I know, I shouldn’t be a lazy drive-thru user.

Fell more in love with my orange mani.   Tangerine Tango may be my favorite color of the year yet!!

Rocked my 7th grade basketball jersey during dropoff.   I’m too sexy for real grown up clothes before 9:30am.

Aand re-embarked on the summer spray tan.  The foot positions always remind me of a dance chart, now you’ll think of it to the next time you’re nekkid in a Mystic booth.
