Cheetos, the puffy kind. I justify eating the entire bag because Cheetos are mostly air anyway.

Thin Mints

One sleeve is one serving.

Supermarkets in the UK have started selling "Thin Turkish Delight". Turkish delight covered in milk chocolate. One box is one serving too.

In my office group Cheetos are referred to as 'lard puffs'.

For me the worst one is cashews!

Oh, golly, cashews. Yes. I'm also mildly allergic to them so I not only do I feel like a pig for eating a whole can full, but also feel all tingly and weird. But I lurves them.

For me it is popcorn....especially the cheesy kind like Smartfood. It is versatile as dinner and a snack!

Sitting in the doorway of my tent in the dark, somewhere in France,. shelling pistachios and a beer to hand. Who cares if it is raining. Or that there is another days cycling to come. (Do you think that they are truly addictive ? :) )


Who cares how time progresses..

Today I am drinking ale.

For me it is anything mixed nuts, hands down.

A close second is Keebler pecan sandie cookies. I will set and eat the whole bag at a time!

Wasabi peas, and the sinus searing salty powder left on my fingers after eating the entire can. I wish there were more wasabi flavoured snack foods around.

Blue Diamond Wasabi & Soy almonds. I have to restrain myself from eating the entire can in one sitting.

My local Costco sells shelled pistachios in a bag and I could just keep eating every last one.

Incredible flavor combo. I'm just waiting for the potato-chip version.

Lots of wasabi snacks around here. Peas, peanuts, soy beans, potato chips.

I went through a phase of going overboard with the wasabi peanuts, but haven't had any in a while.

The soy beans were imaginatively labelled on the packaging, though. I mean, "Get to the point!"

A friend of mine returned from a trip to Hong Kong early last year and brought me back a bag of wasabi pistachios. They were one of the best snacks I'd ever tasted. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find them around here. I've been wondering how hard it would be to make my own.

One sleeve is one serving.

We buy 3 boxes per year. We like them cold out of the freezer. They last about 3 weeks.

Sun Chips are bad one for me. Most other bags of chips I have no trouble putting away after a single serving, but I'll be damned if Sun Chips last more than a day in my house. Also Fig Newton - a sleeve of those can disappear quick.

That has got to be my favorite chips, Pringles. As the advertisements says, once you pop you can't stop. I can finish the entire can within several minutes especially if I'm watching TV or working.

I am sure they have some additive that makes them addictive.
