fun foods

DSC01550 Some fun foods I found while here...M & M's Snack Mix.

They come in 3 variations, but I only tried 2.

Peanut with roasted almonds, tiny shortbread cookies, and pretzles.

DSC01551 Based on weight, you don't get much from this one.

DSC01556 Plain with roasted peanuts, tiny chocolate chip cookies, and pretzles.

I think you get more for your money here.

DSC01557 Lots of roasted peanuts and pretzles in this.

Overall, these could be made by putting different things together, but it's great because it saves you the time of gathering all the different goodies.

DSC01553 Angry Birds gummies...yup, they're in candy form now.

DSC01558 At $2.25 a box from the snack shop I found this one at, they were totally a rip-off, BUT I haven't seen them anywhere else on the island, so since I wanted to try them, I bought a box.

Lacking green (apple) pigs and black (grape) birds, there were only 2 of each in my bag!

The reds (strawberry & cherry) were plentiful.

I thought the one with most flavor was the yellow (lemon), though there weren't too many yellows nor blues (raspberry).

Are you eating anything fun these days?

I actually tried all three flavors of the mixes. I thought I'd like the dark chocolate one the best, but I don't think that mix had cookies like the other two. So, I guess my favorite was the milk chocolate one.

yeah, Genki, I think the dark one had raisins, which is why I didn't choose it :p

Take care.

Those cute snacks will take forever to make it to Italy (if they ever do), but if anything those angry birds should already be here. Actually, I'm hoping to see angry bird cookie cutters for xmas gingerbread. Would be so cute!

Take care.
