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:

Happy snacking!!



Have you ever twitched?   If you’ve never complained about something on twitter kudos to you.   I totally have.  I’m not fabulous about verbalizing my frustrations (until I hit boiling point…then I’ll scream) so sometimes if I’m angry, sad, disgusted…I’ll turn to the interwebs and have it out in 140 characters or less.   Was trying to think of a good name for this immature behavior.   Twants (twitter rants).  Twelling (twitter yelling).   Twitching just seemed to sum it up.

I hope you have a great St. Patrick’s Day !   If you were a child of the 90’s do you remember how every single food would be turned green?   Green bagels, green milk, green pies (remember those sugary pies we used to take to school, like apple, blueberry, green something?)   I’ll have a nice spinach salad today to cover my green food intake.


the tweets tell it

So earlier this year I made the brilliant decision to take a train from NYC to Tampa to visit friends.   I did a recap of the adventure here, but recently found something much more interesting…tweets.   For whatever reason I wanted to see how far back twitter saved timelines and I discovered mine from earlier this year.   I’ve gotta say my tweets and much more interesting than my blogs.   Check it out below, keep in mind this will be a backwards read if you start from the top, to see the chronological order o’tweets scroll to the bottom and read up.
