A Snack Tray to Gather the Family Around

The lady in seat 4F, though, the one in the light cashmere pullover reading the newspaper, she clicked the latch on her seat-back tray and said: “Double Smirnoff, on the rocks. And Doritos.” NYTimes [more inside]

Lips Like Sugar: The dangerous diet of the checkout aisle

One of the biggest offenders in promoting unhealthy eating, facilitating diet-related disease, and exploiting decision fatigue in Americans is hidden in plain sight: the checkout aisle. And it's all according to plan. The Center for Science in the Public Interest's recent report, Temptation at Checkout: The Food Industry's Sneaky Strategy for Selling More (executive summary) takes a critical look at how the retail environment maximizes sales of snacks and candy at the cash register.

It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it: chip reviews

"To be frank, these chips taste exactly like they are named. Simply, nothing more, and nothing less. The relatively spicy Tapatío hot sauce burns, while the acidic, and citrusy lime flavor shocks the tongue. The classic combination of chile and lime is once again revealed, and executed. Probably the only thing we find a bit unsuspecting about these chips is that there is no cheese flavor at all. Each, and every one of the other Tapatío-FritoLay snacks, seemed to have an underlying cheese flavor among them. For good, or for bad, the cheese flavor was there in all the other; but with these, they simply delivered spicy hot chile and lime." Chip Review takes a look at Lay's "Tapatío and Lime" flavor. More reviews in the Tapatio category of chips. Lime/Limón reviews; salt-and-vinegar. These are general reviews, for their 2014 countdown, see below the fold. [more inside]

Holland's favorite snack

"Bitterballen are one of Holland's favorite snacks … this deep-fried, crispy, bite-sized ball of meaty gravy is to be eaten with a good, savory mustard." A traditional way to make use of leftovers, recipes for bitterballen are many and diverse. But one thing that (presumably) has never been done before happened this past Monday on Dutch TV, when two presenters cooked up some bitterballen in human fat. (A little more info on the show here.)

popcorn & hawaiian snack noms

Did you know popcorn may be the perfect healthy snack food? Probably not so much once you pile on the toppings! If you'd like to try a uniquely Hawaiian snack (are you adventurous enough for crack seed?) then popcorn meets Hawaii in hurricane popcorn: a mix of buttered popcorn, furikake, and arare ("mochi crunch" - a rice cracker mix). (This re-invented version includes corn pops, dried pineapple, and bacon).

Pimp My Snack

Finally, some pimping I can endorse. It started with cars, but the concept of "pimping" has quickly become passe. Until I saw this. Via Monkeyfilter

Doritos, that counts as a cheese, right?

The food pyramid has been updated again, apparently. According to Frito-Lay, your major food groups now consist of fruits, vegetables, protein, dairy, and Doritos. (via Calpundit)

I think this guy displayed a much healthier reaction than suing Doritos, don't you?

I think this guy displayed a much healthier reaction than suing Doritos, don't you? Instead, he "storms" back into the store and demands another packet. I'm in love.

Internet snacks

Internet snacks have been here for a while. It's when reality starts to look a little too much like parody when I get scared. At least they have their demographic pegged.
