    The Guilty Pleasure Snack Thread

    We all have them, so post 'em up.

    What's the snack you just gotta have once in awhile?

    As I sit here dipping pretzels into frosting. Sometimes I just have to have the sugar and salt.
    Goya! It's got what plants crave. It's got electrolytes. Livin in an Idiocracy.

    OK, this 'un! Hmmm... I don't really have a 'gotta have it' snack. I do have to have the toast/butter/Marmite/strawberry jam combo every once in a while, so I guess that'd be it!
    It's all Here. Now.

    Man, so hard to pick just one. Butter toffee peanuts, soft pretzel with good mustard, frosting (or Nutella) on fruit, cool ranch Doritos, quesadilla with cheese, guac and sour cream… the list goes on.

    Sometimes it's hard to draw the line where a snack ends and a meal begins. Mini tacos, pigs-in-a-blanket, PB&J, etc.

    Our local Grocery Outlet was carrying a huge bag of puffed corn coated in caramel which was quite the habit-forming snack. Luckily they stopped carrying it.

    Not sure I'd put myself in the "guilty" pleasure camp other than maybe beer. I can eat the hell out of some quality smoked salmon though. The definition of meat candy. I'm with you on the cool ranch Doritos too but I rarely allow myself to eat them. Salted nuts too.

    Sliced then steamed banh cuon/u’o’t noodles and lap xuong thuong hang sausages, topped with fresh cilantro and freshly sliced green onions, alongside lightly sauteéd (in a wee bit of sesame oil) short choy sum, and then finally topped with sambal oelek chili paste. Sh¡t is golden!!!

    Roasted peanuts, plain or lightly salted, is my guilty pleasure snack. I feel guilty cause I tend to eat a meals' worth, from grazing on them over the course of a day.

    Love em, problem is, they keep you up all night.

    Dark chocolate covered almonds rolled in cocoa powder. For some reason they are hard to find these days. There are plenty of dark chocolate covered almonds out there, it’s the finding some that have been rolled in cocoa powder that is the challenge.

    So many to choose from but I show restraint:

    donuts
    Ring Dings
    Ho Ho's

    On the regular, I enjoy Oreos and Choc Chunk Chips Ahoy. Total abstinence is an act of folly they tell me.
    The only important thing these days, is rhythm and melody. Rhythm...and melody.

    I never knew about these until I moved here but Juanitas tortilla chips are damn amazing tortilla chips. So fatty and salty. Just amazing. They make no effort to be healthy or even restrained.

    When I lived in Arizona I would buy corn tortillas locally and throw them in batches in our little deep fryer I had, and wish I had kept, and then salt them and serve them with fresh salsa and guacamole. These are a very close second to that experience, and if you warm them up, they are almost indistinguishable from them.

    Looks like an Oregon product! Whodathunk./

    I’m addicted to blue corn tortilla chips. Hard to find good ones in Colorado. In San Diego I was surrounded by them. Add some good guacamole and sour cream and I’m in heaven.

    Sorry to rain on people's joy (ok, not really) but I never have understood Oreos. They don't really taste like chocolate to me, just fat and sugar, similar to candy corn. And the extreme colors just scream "processed the hell out of it". Give me a good chocolate chip cookie any day over a whole bag of oreos.

    Good snacks. Now I'm hungry again.

    If I had to pick a favorite potato chip, it would be Lays salt and vinegar.

    I’m with you on that. My brother in-law likes Oreos so much his wife [my sister] gives him Oreos in his Christmas stocking. She’s learned to give me “dark” [has to be dark] chocolate chip cookies in mine.

    I love the ones at the tortilleria in Food City(Latino Grocery store). Just like Juanitas I believe they are cooked in lard.

    I've recently discovered Juanita's as well. They're family owned and they also happen to be the least expensive tortilla chips at my local Safeway. Who knew?

    Years ago, when I worked swing shift and got off at midnight, I would stop by a 7-11 on the way home from work and pick up a pint of Rocky Road ice cream and a bag of Nacho Cheese flavored Doritos. I would eat the Doritos, using the ice cream as dip.

    Before anyone asks... No, I wasn't high.

    Ditto that, and a LOT more products too.

    There's a theory that chemical laden food is so appealing because all the flavor and some nutrition has been bred out of our food to industrial farming.

    I feel like that might be jerky and sausage. When I was a kid and lived in hunter land we always got all kinds of deer sausages and such. Shortcoming for me was that they were always too lean and if I was making them would probably cut in some beef or pork or even poultry fat to help but that aside they were always really good.

    Not necessarily snack food but sausages aren't ever wrong.

    I think the benefit of the blue chip is it is almost always a very thin chip with an amazing crunch. I am not sure if the blue corn processes finer or your just finer processing with a rarer produce than with standard corn but they are always so thin. The crunch is addicting and I think flavor wise they retain less oil so they are less inclined to taste of the oil and more to taste like actual corn.

    A lot of corn chips do just taste of their oil, especially the ones from big manufacturers like Doritos corn chips.

    You already asked.

    Korn - Chip asked and I Googled. First thing that came up was something backing up my blue “chips taste different” theory, thanks for playing though.

    I do eat them, and I do eat the regular tortilla chips. Big difference in taste.

    What really is surprising is Korns username and not knowing this. Corn chip schooling 101.

    You know what, I wasn't paying attention, didn't realize I went directly to your main source for news, and the name is so fitting, lol!

    It's most likely the brands that have a different flavor, not the blue corn itself. Saying blue corn chips are better is just like saying yellow corn chips are better, but you know that's not true because they all taste different.

    I disagree, if you ever had good blue corn chips you’d know. I’m not talking generic bagged chips you find down at your local grocery store. Even those have a better taste that regular corn tortilla chips. Get your act together here, you did live in California before, no? California and other Southwest states get the good stuff.

    Researchers from the home of the tortilla, Mexico, found blue corn tortillas contain 20% more protein than their white corn counterparts. They also have less starch and a lower glycemic index (GI), which may be good news for dieters and people with diabetes.

    Foods with a lower glycemic index are considered healthier because the sugar content is taken into the blood more slowly and provide a steady source of energy, while sugars in high-glycemic index foods are more likely to cause spikes in blood sugar and energy levels.

    Says nothing about them tasting better, which is all in your head.

    If they did taste better, dontcha think all tortilla chips would be made out of blue corn? If you think the flavor comes from the color you should try some blue waffles!

    Check out this banned radio ad. I remember it playing on a local rock station in San Diego around 2010’ish. It played for about a month then disappeared. Years later I wondered what happened to it and looked it up.

    Hilarious!

    I as well am addicted to pesto. In fact I’m eating it right now on some noodles. Pretty much a daily go to sauce for me.

    That is a high class pig-in-a-blanket.

    I feel guilty about everything. Snacks I like include any tortilla chip with either salsa or hummus, but often plain; chocolate frosted custard donuts; cashews with sea salt; beer (oh c'mon it's a snack!); those cheap popsicles that come in clear plastic tubes.

    Devouring moar cauliflower with ranch atm. Not really what I consider a guilty pleasure, except I'm using a lot of ranch dressing. I hadn't had HVR in a long time and thought maybe it was better than Kraft, nope, need a lot of it to even taste it.

    Cheetos on the other hand, well until I lick off all the Cheetle, are definitely a guilty pleasure, especially now that I've discovered big bags of 'em at Costco for $5.

    Agreed!!! Especially delicious combination when you’re high on marijuana (which is legal in many states here in the U.S.).

    Not in my state. But it's legal in the next state over, which is just across the bridge and the city here doesn't prosecute small pot charges anymore, so that's like, functionally legal?

    Anyone try these from Costco: Aussie Bites?

    I love 'em except the chia seeds tend to stay in my teeth (timed release energy?).

    There are a few recipes on the intardnet for making your own.

    I've gotten Aussie Bites a few times, they're pretty good. Might have to grab some for an upcoming road trip.

    I had to look up 'Cheetle' earlier and saw a news article on this stuff, so I bought some to try. Hope it tastes better than the funky brown color suggests.

    I haven't but I was tempted to buy some. But Costco used to sell something similar and they always made my stomach ache even though they were supposed to be all organic. It was weird, I have no idea what it could have been. I bought some coconut covered dates right before the lockdown and they tasted weird. It wasn't just me, my wife thought so as well without me even mentioning it to her; they had a soapy artificial taste to them. I stuck them in my car to return but never got around to it. Bet they taste real funky now.
    This post is a natural product. Variances in spelling & grammar should be appreciated as part of its character & beauty.

    I get a rare hankering for ripple potato chips; otherwise not boot bad on the snacks. Some of my riding cronies bring tons of sugary bars, etc. and start eating them before we even start riding lol

    My wife and I eat raw almonds, dried fruit and generally heathy stuff. On long rides, I bring a PB&J or reasonably healthy granola bar(s).

    Why's it a guilty snack? Seems like legit food at a price that you couldn't beat if you tried to copy it yourself.

    Do yourself a favor. Throw that away. Buy a bottle of sriracha and some local honey. Mix 1:1.

    The sausage ain’t exactly healthy, seeing how it’s basically sweet salty FAT. Since 97% of meals I eat are prepared at home by me, it seems like it’s a guilty pleasure.

    Meanwhile, your Vietnamese food picture looks delicious… which restaurant is that?

    I think it was Mi La Cay in Westminster, or one of the neighboring ones. Can smell the BBQ from the outside.

    Edit: Com Tam Thuan Kieu. I had the variety dish. The grilled pork was the best of the meats, but had a burnt paper aftertaste.

    I am assuming Wesminster is SoCal… I am in San Jose (NorCal Bay Area proper) and we’ve got tons of Vietnamese eateries all over. There are a handful of excellent Vietnamese food places, but I miss going with my ex-girlfriend (who is Vietnamese) since she would order (in Vietnamese) all sorts of stuff I never had before and all of it was AMAZING!!! Best place around here is called—no joke—………… PHO KIM LONG. I kid you not!!! They have the best bun rieu, with proper crab fat in it!

    I don’t have a sweet tooth, but that strawberry cake thingie looks really delicious… and not solely because I got home from a 45 mile medium pace (thank you Adam Sandler) roadie ride an hour ago and have only had one bloody mary and two IPAs – no food yet.

    I've been on a "eat trash ride fast" kick for a bit, picking up calories from gas stations while out road biking, the sour patch kids are damn good, 440 calories in that bag too, that plus the red bull and the bag of chips results in almost unlimited power on the bike! well I didn't eat all the sour patch kids and none of this will make you stronger, but its some serious bonk prevention!

    Coaster brake only sturmey archer 3 speed road bike I built up, this thing fawkin' hauls!





    Yea, it still needs bar tape...

    This is my go-to after ride snack. Sometimes it's dinner, too. Like tonight.

    Fritos Scoops chips, Hummis (I like Sabra Roasted Pine Nut) alfalfa sprouts that Susie makes on the kitchen counter from seeds, diced white onion and hot sauce. The onion I picked up from a road-side stand on my way home from work. (grabbed a few choice zucchini, too) We are fortunate to have a lot of farmland around here, so Farmer's Markets and road-side veggie stands are abundant in the growing season.

    A plate of these is filling and delicious.

    From your artistically framed photos I can see further culinary potential for extending those scoopy corn chips. I am imagining some steamed edamame topped with tobiko, Japanese Kewpie mayonaisse, sriracha, and some thinly-sliced green onion. Damn, I shall have to do this and post pictures now!

    Nice Scoops hors d'oeuvres, Net!

    You should try the Spicy Jalapeño Scoops. They used to have big bags at Costco but they stopped selling them, so I stock up at the regular grocery store when they go on sale.

    Will do.

    Also, we have a couple of Jalapeño plants coming along nicely in the veggie garden. When they start putting out, I'll be adding fresh Jalapeño into the mix, too.
