Currently snacking on BIGS Slightly Salted Pumpkin Seeds.

The shell is edible so I eat it all. Fiber! xD

I certainly munched on the Halloween pumpkin seeds after brining and roasting. The kids anxiously awaited Mrs. Keough's seeds. The guys at the pumpkin patch would give me free ones on Nov 1.  But green pepitas are hull-less by nature. I had no clue until a while ago. I like them in both forms. So yours had the hull?  https://www.tasteofhome.com/article/pepitas/

Yes. I suppose I could crack them open  (like a sunflower seed) and just eat the inner seed, but then I sometimes eat the entire sunflower seed, hull and all. I guess it depends on my mood.

That is what all the kids do at Little League with sunflower seeds. They look like they have chew in their cheeks. Love it when they spit out  stand back - don't stand so close to me.  https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/53234/when-did-baseball-players-start-chewing-sunflower-seeds

What is it, @Kim Shook ?

It's a giant, crazy marshmallow.  And, no, I'm not 12.  I just was entranced with the look of it.  I didn't finish it, but wanted to know what it was like.  I'm thinking about lighting a candle later.  I'm thinking it would be tastier if weed were legal in VA.  😄

Son and DIL were working from home and quarantined in (occupied) our beach house.  They are now back to their house in NJ.  My DIL is Chinese and I got a lot of Asian ingredients that they left behind.  And a few American staples.  So I snacked on pedestrian white bread and an umami bomb mixture of miso, Lao Gan Ma, mushroom sauce, kewpie mayo.  Cold beer not shown ;)

Nothing is better than frying in lard.

Nothing.  Do not quote me on this.

Snacking on Werther's Caramel Popcorn (click).

It surprised me...a lot of caramel popcorn just tastes like the caramel. With this, however, I can taste the popcorn, aside from the caramel, which I thought was unusual but good.

And yes, the caramel tastes EXACTLY like the Werther's Caramel candies. Two thumbs up.:B

@Toliver – I love Werther’s caramel and I adore caramel corn, so I’ll be looking for that!

 

I seem to be here more often than anyone else.  Hmmm. :blush:  Yesterday Mr. Kim and I shared an afternoon snack:

Crackers, fig jam, Brie, and mortadella.  The “crackers” in the very back are actually oatcakes and those with the Brie and fig jam are so very good!

Taiwanese iron eggs. Those are flavored with five spice and dark caramel. Those are quail eggs, which are cooked and air dried until the egg-white is chewy-elastic ("Q") and the flavor is concentrated. The yolk is very rich, more than a regular tea egg.

Goes well with beer.
