Our neighbor gave us 1/2 a cake and I threw it out to make sure I didnt eat it while Darling Husband is gone this week for work. But now I want a snack and the only thing I have is tomatoes, butternut squash and apples. My house sucks for snacking.
I do have some popcorn kernals, which I am making on the stove. I hope I dont burn it.
What snack foods do you have right now in your cupboard? What do you make sure to always have on hand?

Well, I don’t have any right now but I LOVE those Ritz chips. Cheddar is my favorite flavor and the only place that has it is Publix. I would have gone out just to buy some but I’ve had to make myself stay at home and study.

I don’t keep too much junk food in the house, but we usually have popcorn kernels (I like it in the air popper), pudding cups, apple sauce, cheese strings, various nuts, probably a box of some sort of cracker, some of those rice cake minis (I like the chili heat or white cheddar), sometimes Smart Pop, tortillas with salsa, or some kind of dip. And almost always tzatziki sauce which I love on cucumbers, apples/peanutbutter, but don’t know if you consider some of those things snack foods.

The only thing I always have is popcorn kernels – we bought a popcorn popper for $15 at Wal-Mart a couple of years ago and it is my favourite kitchen appliance.

Ugh I wanted a snack but I’m stuck in Sandy right now so can’t really venture out. So applesauce it is.

I always keep raw almonds around. I eat them constantly. I eat them with havarti cheese sometimes. Sounds strange, I know, but it’s delicious.

we usually have phillippines dried mangos, raisins, chips (recently we’ve been getting Cape Cod or pretzel chips) and hummus, if we’re feeling fiesty we get brownie cookies from Jewel LoL, and we have the occasional chocolates on hand (coworkers’ kids’ fundraisers will be the death of us). Dried mangos are my favorite!!

@khf777: Cheese goes with everything!
@SapphireSun: I consider those snack foods!
@kittyface: I decided I actually like stove popped popcorn better than air, but its so much harder to make! I burn it too many times. And I discovered the quality of the kernals makes all the difference!

Popcorn kernels- you can put them in a plain brown luch ag and microwave them just like the pre-packaged ones that are covered in artery clogging fat.(Move over Orville)
I always keep fresh veggies washed , cut and ready to eat- red, yellow and orange green pepper strips, carrot sticks, rutabaga sticks, etc. Whatever I buy at the market I prepare right away so there are always healthy snacks ready.

@ThreeMeers: Oh my gosh, yeah, the stove top tastes better – fresher or something. I only have like 2 pots at my house so I use the popper, but at my SO’s place we do it on the stove and would eat it every night… I figure no matter what it’s super cheap and SO much healthier than the microwave crap (especially after I read something about ‘popcorn lung’, ew!)

I’m a sucker for chocolates! We ALWAYS have chocolate in the house! But if I’m trying to stay healthy we always have tins of tuna for him, and salmon for me.

@julies1949: Normally I would consider veggies snacks (I do at work) but my dinner was nearly all veggies I felt the “need” for something different. I have yet to try the bag in the microwave method. I should. any instructions for it?

I keep a lot of not so good junk food, because my husband packs it for his lunch. I also have some healthy/low carb ones that I love.
We usually always have 3-4 different snack cakes and different kinds of chips. Pretzels, cheez-its, cubbed cheese or string cheese, popcorn, pop tarts, cereal bars, nuts, snickers/candy bars, fuirt by the foot/fruit gushers, dried fruits, yogurt, orange slices in juice, mac n cheese cups, beef jerky, cookies, pringles, peanut butter, nutella, the list goes on.
