Friday 5: Looking like a snack

March 10, 2023

Happy Friday, friends! I took today off of work to basically kick around and do nothing. It’s delightful.

Here’s the Friday 5! This week’s theme is Looking like a snack. Right up my alley.

  1. What do you usually reach for when you need just a little bite?
    I’ve been buying the dark chocolate peanut butter cups from Trader Joe’s and they are great for a little sweet pick-me-up in the middle of the day. I try to keep it to one or two at a time. For a larger snack, I make popcorn.
  2. How frequently do you visit convenience stores?
    Wawa is considered a convenience store even though they are much larger than the 7-Elevens and Cumberland Farms stores of my youth. I hit Wawa about once a week for a sandwich and maybe a hazelnut coffee with hazelnut creamer.

    Back in 2020 when I was afraid to leave the house, WM would mask up and go to Wawa for breakfast occasionally and bring home a hazelnut coffee with hazelnut creamer and call it a homemade Covid test. Because you can smell that coffee/creamer combination a mile away.
  3. What’s your favorite chip?
    Do you even need to ask? Cool Ranch Doritos. For. Life. Occasionally I will dabble in Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream chips, but I will always come home to my true love.
  4. What’s your favorite candy bar?
    My favorite candy bar is Three Musketeers; however, they’re not always easy to find so I default to my second-favorite, which is Twix.
  5. What are some hard candies you especially like?
    I’m still all about Jolly Ranchers, mostly watermelon and strawberry. Never green apple. I think the Jolly Rancher is GenX’s version of Werther’s.

    I had you pegged for peppermint starlights for some reason. Nothing to do with age; I’m sure! 🙂

    I don’t love Jolly Ranchers but I will never turn down a cinnamon JR. Which you never see unless you go to Target to look for them.

    Haha, the names you mention are completely unknown here, except Werther’s and Twix.

    Have a great weekend!
