    HAHAH I do that all the time!! Just buying food products just because I know that I’ll find them again!!! :P And that kabocha/carrot/blue potato chips makes me sad that I’m not in the US :( hehe have a fun bus trip!! :D

    I think that this is the very first time in all your blogging history that I have not found one. single. food that you have featured as even remotely appetising!

    FLACKERS! What a terrific name for a safe-but-rudely-intentioned curse word! :)

    Thank you, thank you! I had so much fun reading this. I would happily try one of each, although the flavourless salad on coleslaw veggies might be a bit hard to force down. The NadaMoo, on the other hand, would be oh-so-easy to eat and also make me laugh with its name. Luckily I can do the laughing from here :) Enjoy the pretty views and stay warm xx

    Looks like both the chips are the winners here. Also, kimchi is always good. I can eat that stuff just by itself as a snack, yum yum.

  5. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Wow you are doing some serious damage to our grocery stores here ;)

    Poor thing about the Thunder Bay bus. Hope you have fun!

    Haha! So I’ve been back living in the States for 8 years now and I honestly haven’t seen or heard of at least half this list. ;) The NadaMoo is a cute name, though! And I do love kale chips, I’ve just never bought them premade before. Apparently I need to get out more. ;)

    Hehe, it’s Thunder Bay. What did you expect? :)

    I would give you a pretentious rating of 6. A girl’s gotta have her sea salt with her coconut milk non-dairy frozen dessert, everyone knows this.

    Oh, Hannah. I love it when you speak Old English to me via the Internet. And omg LOL at the Vegetarian BBQ. Inneresting….. And yes, I scream at myself often for feeling so torn for not having garnish on many of my food at home too. But who actually stock up on herbs for garnish anyway. Everytime I buy a bunch, only end up using a few leaves/sprigs and chuck out the rest because they’ve gone bad. Surely, there is a better (more sustainable) system than this. Tried freezing my herbs but was totally not the same =O

    When we bussed from Toronto to Ottawa last year there weren’t enough seats for the people! The bus was nearly full at the main terminal, and then we picked up more people. 2 girls sat in the stairs, and one guy leaned against the toilet door, having to move everytime someone peed. Andy and I had a seat… across the aisle from a lady who spent the whole 5 hours drinking alcopops. Greyhound Canada fun!

    You bought that Almond Milk Chocolate Pudding because there was a panda on the box, didn’t you?!

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one with an insanely crazy snacking addiction ;)

    Damn, those are some weird snacks!

    Out of those, I think the maple pecan coconut milk dessert looks the yummiest. Mmmmm coconut milk…

    Enjoy your bus ride! It is a shame that pretty snow has to be accompanied with cold temperatures! But, not always….when you get used to the subzeros, 2 degrees will feel warm! (I promise!)

    Hey Hannah!
    Glad you’re eating your way through the good old US of A! You do realise that the ‘exotic’ Kabocha is what we know as the ‘Jap’ pumpkin here in Oz?
    Those Americans always dress things up..:)
    Happy travelling..

  15. Ricki

    Ah, was so in need of a chuckle this evening, and you, dear Hannah, never disappoint! You even managed to find some junk food that I wouldn’t eat–quite a feat!

    Enjoy your time with Heather (lucky both of you!!). And yes, so cold. Pretty. . . .for a little while, until it’s turned slushy and gray from cars driving over/by it. And SO COLD. ;-)

    I’m glad you liked the flackers! I love them, but have been informed that they are an acquired taste.

  17. Hotly Spiced

    What a selection. So many weird and bizarre things. Americans do seem to like things sealed in containers. I’m not sure I would like to try fake meat – it doesn’t have much appeal. Your lodgings in NYC sound very miniscule but I’m sure they didn’t come cheap xx

  18. Johanna GGG

    The chips/crcakers in the post definintely don’t have the cutest packaging but they sound the best – yeah for savoury snacks! there just aren’t enough of them about. And I would be up early for a greyhound bus too (and you know if you didn’t there would be a huge queue)

  19. Heather @ Sweetly Raw

    Wow so many delicious goodies! Nacho kale chips Mmmmm…. maple pecan ice cream Mmmm…. Makin’ me hungry girl and I already had my egg breaky!!! ;)

  20. Louise

    Oh wow, what an extraordinary selection of goodies (?). I completely understand trying things just because of the novelty. Although I suspect that my line in the novelty sand would be drawn before I reached in to get the fake bbq stuff and the no cream icecream. I was brave in Texas last year and did try some kale chips. Well, a kale chip. I found the chaff notes just a bit too strong. I see kale has started making an appearance at Harris Farm, I haven’t been brave enough to try any yet though. And that pink salt sentence? 10/10.
