I usually love buffalo flavored everything but for some reason these pretzel things are just not right. I think maybe it's because they're uber salty and it just doesn't work with the buff for some reason.

Would you say that once you pop, you can't you can't you can't stop?

Pretty sure one tube is a "serving", at least in my experience.

Re: OOT Unhealthy Snacks Reviews/Discussion

I like to think of what a really fat handed person goes through when I'm reaching my fingers for the last chip before you have to tip the can. The final chip chug straight from tube to mouth is the best part. I've gone to the thicker and more flavored version of the Pringle, The Stax




-The Pretzel Crisps are great with Cottage Cheese. Buffalo works nicely.

****in' love Takis. One of the few spicy snack foods that actually build up a good spiciness that sneaks up on you. They mess my stomach up really badly though which is odd bc I usually have a pretty strong constitution.

A friend of mine is a pediatrician in San Antonio. In her experience, the majority of children in San Antonio subsist on Takis and Big Red.

The original is my favorite, followed by barbecue. I have tried others but would not buy alone (unless deep discount), although get some in multi-packs.

I have never tried stacking different flavors, but usually eat 4-6 at once.


What is the your best layering/stacking recommendation ... I might give that a try.

I am yet to try a stacking method of Pringles.

I haven't bought Pringles in a while but I am tempted to get a bunch for a stacking experiment.

This is pertinent:

Salted Plantain chips are the most underrated snack that exists if you find the right brand.

This one is my favorite:

For some reason one of our local Sprouts discontinued the spicy flavored plantain chips from their bulk section. To get rid of inventory, they sold them for $1.99/lb. I filled two of their surprisingly large plastic bags, roughly 8 pounds. My wife helped eating and I think they didn’t even last a month

Last night I opened a bag of the Snack Factory “Everything” pretzels posted earlier in the thread. I thought they were good but not outstanding so I made some guacamole to go with it. I really liked the combination and was sad to run out of guacamole before finishing the bag. So I had the remaining pretzels with hummus, which is a pretty good combination, too.

Re: OOT Unhealthy Snacks Reviews/Discussion

I recently discovered that I cannot open a bag of these things without eating all of them.



While I can understand the allure of Takis I just can't eat those things. A little too much heat for me plus the excess coating that accumulates on your fingers but I do like the texture.

I had this problem until I lost all shame and started utilizing the "smash the bag contents and pour directly into mouth" method. Bad, bad look.

Yeah they are! Where did you get the big bag? I've only seen them in the cans and the little sleeves.

Some CVS/Walgreens around here have them and they go on $5.99 sale kinda frequently.

The flavors I really like but canít find in big bags are Habanero BBQ and Honey Chipotle. Thereís also Thai Sweet Chili but I canít find that in bags or cans anywhere. Same for Toasted Coconut which I only see in that snack size plastic packaging.
