Second thing happening in the Snackshot ... carrots! I think I actually forgot that you don't have to eat raw carrots in their slightly slimy, bagged baby form. I was tasked with bringing a veggie platter and a fruit tray to a ladies' painting party. I found some baby cucumbers that I wanted to slice longways (first things to disappear, btw) and thought it would be more symmetrical and visually appealing if I had longer carrot sticks as well. I got out the Costco peeler I've had since my wedding shower (thank you, Aunt Pat!), went to town, and then sliced them up. And I haven't looked back. I've been eating way more carrots that I peel and slice myself than I ever did babies from the baggie. I'm embarrassed that I forgot peeling and cutting carrots myself was an option.
If you're like me, regular Um, Skinny Pop isn't blowing you away these days. Sure, it's a caloric bargain, but the plain version is starting to feel blah to me. I tried the Pepper Jack version at an airport in January and loved it. It's got plenty of flavor and a lil kick. I haven't seen a movie yet in 2019 but when I finally do, I'll be packing some Pepper Jack Skinny Pop in my large mom purse. Outside of airport convenience stores, I've only been able to find the Pepper Jack variety at Walgreens, but as I go there at least thrice a week, it's been easy to stay supplied. I've also tried the Black Pepper Skinny Pop, which I like but not as much as the Pepper Jack. I am not a fan of the Aged White Cheddar.
Noted but not pictured because I am pretending I didn't eat them: two bags of Brach's Conversation Hearts purchased at Walgreens (see above) as part of post-Valentine's Day clearance; a bag of Starburst Jelly Beans because they are amazing, even six weeks before Easter.
Favorite snacks these days? Do tell.
