    I have never seen these in the US… but that first snack sounds awesome!

    I just left Ohio… and the snow. Ick! Stay warm!

  2. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    I keep seeing similar snow-related FB updates from you and my Canadian family, so it sounds like the snow is quite widespread! I know we’re not mean to talk about weather anymore, but it’s going to be 41’C here tomorrow… Oh, for the averaging out possibility.

    Those Cheeky Monkey snacks won me over with their name so I am so glad they delivered in taste. Puffed peanut butter is hard to imagine but I can certainly believe it would be delicious 🙂

    It is always saddening to come about bad chocolate bars, you just think they don’t exist right then BOOM! At least you could depression eat with the other delicious snacks 😀

    Seeing that snow makes me want to eat it! 😉
    It has been 35 degrees here today and I’ve just done the vacuuming. Now I’m crunching on vegetable juice ice blocks. 🙂
    I like your snack reviews.

    Snow! How exciting.

    Chicken toaster snacks? That sounds like something Viper would eat after too many beers. Vomit.

  6. janet @ the taste space

    Nuts, sorry to hear about your Camino flop… I haven’t tried it yet but I was hoping you’d say it was a great bargain. 🙁 Hopefully the snow is not too bad for you… I don’t think I can get my car out of the laneway because there is no where to put all the snow!

    <3!! So happy you still have some speculoos to bring you back from the brink of snacking horror. I would have lost it at the sight of those toaster-formatted chicken patties. I really cannot wrap my mind around that concept…

    Bad almond butter bar makes ME sad too.

    But chicken toaster snacks? I say yes! (Or at least… I’m curious… do it for me.)

  9. Emma

    Were the chicken toaster snacks really $7.99 once upon a time? I hope you got them for much less. They actually sound really good to me, though I’ve learned from following these snack posts that I need to not trust my tummy, and trust you:)

    So much beautiful snow!

  10. Camille

    Toaster chicken ridiculousness. And I have the same question as Emma – $7.99 sounds really expensive! I am also surprised that the peanut butter puffs were good, but maybe that’s because I have tried a few supposedly peanut-flavored puff-type snacks here in France, and they are always and unfailingly disappointing. But I’m glad to know that good ones are possible!

    Speculoos: always right in every form. I buy the biscuits, smash ’em into crumbs and sprinkle them on the bottom of tiny glass dishes as a ‘free form’ cheesecake base before adding quark/cream cheese/sugar/vanilla mix and some fresh raspberries on top. Might go and do some of that right now…… Snow here, too!

  12. leaf (the indolent cook)

    Haha, I’m with Agnes – I think I’d try the chicken snack, don’t judge me. Definitely want to try the peanut butter snack though!

    I think I will have apocalytic nightmares about flat jacks – so scary! I too would drink that green juice every day – looks great. And the snow looks beautiful in a way that it does to those of us who never have to shovel snow!

  14. Hotly Spiced

    That is so much snow. I can just imagine how frustrating it would be to finish shoveling snow only to find it building up behind you as soon as you finished. You have found a lot of unusual items and I think I’m quite relieved we don’t have that range of items here in Sydney xx

  15. Allysia

    Yay snacks! I’d be all over those peanut butter puffs – who wouldn’t? Well people with peanut allergies I guess. And a green juice present is the best kind of present! Also I kind of have to laugh at the chicken snacks, despite how unappealing they sound. Yay for Canadian winters! My car is (literally) buried in a snow drift, it understands your pain, ha ha. 🙂

  16. Helen (Grab Your Fork)

    lol I actually paused at the Flat Jacks pic only because it’s not sweet and not a pop tart! And the homemade speculoos sounds like bliss. Perfect for eating by the spoonful in front of blizzard tv!

  17. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    The speculoos spread is what caught my eye! I have a jar of it and it is slowly disappearing…. :S

  18. Heidi - Apples Under My Bed

    Merry Winter, lovely!! Wowsa. Snow. That’s snow. Those cheeky monkey snacks kind of do look at bit freaky, I have to say. No judgement though, PB love fo life! ooooh & I hear ya, I’d love to have a daily supply of green juice like that!

    Oh dude! Shovelling! We do that in the Dolomites too. And I’ve just seen some Canadian skiers in the downhill in Austria. Hot diggety!!!

  20. Gabby @ the veggie nook

    Ahhh those chicken snack freak me out soooo much! I was horrified when I saw them in store!

  21. msihua

    I wants some snowstorms and peanut butter puffs together!

  22. Louise

    I can’t believe that anyone would fall for you not wanting those pb snacks! Even I thought that they sounded tasty by the end. Sorry that you have SO Much Snow. But at least you had speculoos in a jar, that is definitely a jar of awesomeness. As for chicken snacks for the toaster- I’d go there once I reckon. I did pop tarts once, can they really be any worse?
