Two-time champ Reese’s Mini Peanut Butter Cups vs. the classic Oeros.
First-time visit to the snack dance Chips+Guac vs. guilty pleasure Movie Theater Popcorn.
Who will win?
This is what I imagine cocktail creation looks like.
Especially when it comes to a new, unique ingredient that seems hard to incorporate.
Yup. And now it’s being canned for the general public to drink.
To many this may seem odd and quaint. Even if you love pickles you may raise an eyebrow at brine marketed as a beverage. As for me, I already know the power of drinking vinegar in the form of shrubs (sugar + fruit + vinegar) by itself or in a cocktail, so drinking brine by itself does not seem far off.
It helps to have a friend who is in the canning business, because when this local pickle company approached my friend to can their brine, I got excited because that means I get to try it before it’s on the market.
For the first time ever, I feel hip as s***!
But can this tasty, savory and salty drink find its way into a cocktail recipe? That’s what I’m really curious about today.
The second round of the Third Annual Snack Bracket is here.
“I will personally end the tyranny of Samoas. Give me Tagalongs or give me death.”
“The 2016 Snacket is wonderfully-organized thus far, and I appreciate the layout. This really ought to go out to the masses, and by “masses,” I don’t mean those friends/acquaintances reached by grassroots, word-of-mouth, send-to-everyone-in-your-social-circle means. No. I mean every U.S. citizen. Get me a presidential nominee who will make the Snacket a mandatory annual test. It would be like the Census, except much more fun. (…At least until the sweet 16 and beyond, when things get wonderfully anarchic.)”
“Seriously issues with the underrating of delicious salty snacks. That low for a soft pretzel!? This is the season for upsets.”
“For a full year, I had forgotten how painful these choices were… until now. It’s only the first round, and you’re making me choose between buffalo chicken dip and ruffles and onion dip!? And Cheese Puffs as a 16 seed!? It already hurts.”
“I can’t believe veggies and hummus are a #2 seed. If only they’d been up against something less gross than jalapeño poppers…”
“Nutella is a 14 seed? Who made this bracket!?”
“I feel like the committee needs to take a hard look at seeding. Some products were grossly overseeded/underseeded.”
“How dare you make me choose between chips and guacamole and spinach artichoke dip. HOW DARE YOU.”
“I am disgusted that you would put Trader Joe’s bite-sized brownies with sea salt against Nutella. Have you no mercy?”
“Having to eliminate veggie straws or movie theater popcorn in the first round?! Brutal. That’s a choice you can’t feel okay about making until the sweet 16.”
“Also, fig Newtons are so good, but putting them next to Samoas never gave them a leg to stand on!”
“Reading that I had to choose between Chips and salsa vs tater tots made my heart stop. “Crappers, how will I choose!?” I thought. I really didn’t like that feeling of my heart stopping, and maybe tater tots are more likely to lead to that? Hmmm is the universe telling me to go with the chips?”
“The Snacket Selection Committee will rue the day that they somehow decided E.L. Fudge cookies were not worthy of a tournament bid. FOR SHAME. SHAME. Sleep with one eye open, committee, for I am hiding in your closet and am ready to pounce. Meowwwww”
“Also, where the hell are combos!?!? Those bitches are snackable as hell.”
“not enough reese style candy. seriously, there are dozens of other reese type candies that would win the whole bracket. nutrageous? fast break? puffs (the cereal)? dark chocolate? big cups? sticks? xmas tree shaped? pumpkin shaped? even sugar free reese’s would win”
This looks very simple and amazing.
Short answer – YES!
Exams have been bombarding our schedules lately and I’m craving desserts. Coincidence? I think not. After all, “stressed” is just “desserts” spelled backwards.
WARNING: THIS RECIPE IS DANGEROUS. You will want to eat it all before anyone sees it or even before it has a chance to cool.
Seriously. Just look at that beauty!
I just can’t get enough of it. This bread is simply too scrumptious to describe. I always have a-third of the entire loaf in one sitting without ANY regrets! And the best part is I CAN indulge again and again because it’s nourishing as well. It’s a win-win!
