    Great post Hannah … particularly the photo of you and my friend of course. The snickerdoodles look great too.

  2. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Oooooo… snickerdoodles. I’ve had an idea in my head for a new and exciting snickerdoodle incarnation. Must make.

    The PB Sandwiches look good. I’ve never seen that brand before.

    Well done on choosing a vegetable (in cake form) ummmmmm bacon soda? Chicken wing soda? What the what what?

  5. Julia @ Boredom Abounds

    Hold the phones…..Cookie Dough Bites? That sounds like heaven!

  6. Hotly Spiced

    Oh heel-click these look really good. But so much confectionery! Only in America xx

  7. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I disappointed myself with snickerdoodles last month, because the name is so fantastic that I was expecting something better than any biscuit I’d had before, and also for some reason I thought they involved peanut butter (probably because they’re American and most things there come with PB variations!). Alas, they weren’t and didn’t. I suspect your freshly made ones would give some of the excellence I was expecting though 🙂

    I am having a lot of fun reading the drink names and snack names in your images. Cookie dough features so prominently in both!

    Wonderful photos but those snicker doodles are definitely my favourite 🙂

    I almost got dizzy at the array of colourful snacks! It’s enough to make me want to stuff them all into my trolley and eat them all in an afternoon of debauchery! 😀

    I’m so curious how those sodas taste! That said, I don’t know if I have the guts to try the buffalo wings and bacon ones.

  11. Heathy

    Fun times! Wish I was gallavanting around LA with you! Those sodas make me want to vomit, LOLOL. Never seen such a thing.

  12. Sarah

    So much happiness in this post! I love the look of the peanut butter crackers and your snickerdoodles! 🙂

    Has it been nearly a year already since my last visit?
    Good Lord! I thought time was meant to slow down for the old and crusty!

    Speaking of crusty, those snickerdoodle biscuits look like the kind of thing that remind you of home, regardless of where you come from.
    They and a cup of Earl Grey look like the perfect potion to woo Mrs. Bage on a chilly Picton evening.
    Fetch me my apron!!

    So, you’re in the City of Angels?
    If you count being stuck on jobs in La Jolla and Mission Viejo for five weeks as being in L.A. (which no reasonable person would), I spent some time there last century.
    I’m sure it’s changed since before the Internet existed, but my enduring memory of Southern California was as a place where food came to die.
    After it died it was subjected to irradiation, industrial processing and, I swear, a bit of Botox before some fancy packaging and an ad campaign made it de rigeur for the rigor mortis set with their white shoes and tennis tops.

    I remember being invited to a dinner party in Oceanside where every single menu item, from entree to sweets, came from a package which the hostess unabashedly opened and chucked on a plate, pan or oven dish, as the case might be, as we stood at the “breakfast bar” drinking wine from goblets so small that they would be considered mere port glasses today.
    The food was ghastly but it didn’t matter.
    I’m happy to report that everybody was tits up before the last tooth pick with a curly coloured cellophane top disappeared from the one-cheese cheese platter.
    Nobody, especially the chef, cared about the food.
    That was the night I was introduced to, had an intimate moment with and fell in love with Zinfandel.

    Two (or maybe three) nights later, I was taken to a gig in L.A. where one of the bands was the Red Hot Chilli Peppers with the soon to be deceased Hillel Slovak on guitar. I barely remember a thing about the show.
    I do, however, remember that when I asked the barman if he had any Zinfadel he said; “No dude, we only got Coors or Coke”.
    It was then that I realised that there was no point trying to be cool, I was just an Oceanside kind of guy, without the white shoes, of course.

    Enjoy yourself my dear and we’ll talk next year, I imagine.

    I see you found your ChickASticks. Well done.

  15. Cindy

    I would make so many regrettable purchases in a shop like that.

  16. Helen (Grab Your Fork)

    Um I leaned in when I saw buffalo wing soda. And then bacon soda!? lol. It bet it’s horrible, but gah, I probably would have bought it. And your snickerdoodles look amazing. Am I the only person who thinks it sounds like a euphemism for something else? rofl. Ok, perhaps it’s just me.

  17. Emma

    Oh, vomit, ranch dressing soda! Ohhhh lordy.

    Cookies n cream bites soda sounds pretty appealing to me though. There’s been a void in my life ever since Orbitz disappeared, maybe this is just the pop to replace it.

  18. jac

    Cookie dough soda! Why? As for bacon soda … words fail me.

  19. Johanna GGG

    I love that someone is crazy enough to make bacon soda but I would prefer your snickerdoodle cookies

  20. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Those soda flavours terrify me. US you’ve done it again 😉

    Glad to see you are enjoying some warm weather!

  21. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Yes, ok, I need to try this snickerdoodle business.

  23. Agnes

    Buffalo wing soda!

    (I instantly notice all the truly disgusting things and want you to try them. For me.)
