Welcome to day 28 of the #AKwritingChallenge! Today’s question asks what is my least favorite snack food?
I love the wording of this challenge. Out of all the snacks in the world, it doesn’t want to know which ones are horrible, but rather out of all the snacks I eat, which is my least fave. I eat a lot of snacks.
Chocoholic checking in, front and center! I have some form of chocolate every day. Whether that is peanut M&Ms or Ben & Jerry’s ice cream or sometimes even a Tootise Roll.
I found a gas station that carries penny sized Tootsie Rolls for $.18. That fun number shows me the inflation from the 1980’s to now.
My Companion also has a bit of a sweet tooth. Our favorite desserts are cheesecake, which is one of the greatest things to have in common, like ever. My Companion is a diabetic, however, and he isn’t supposed to have half the things I love to eat daily. It’s a constant struggle.
I’ve started to pick up more fruits and veggies for snacks, mostly because watermelon is awesome and carrots with peanut butter is pretty yummy. He has been enjoying that also, but it’s not what he prefers.
What he can have, and what he likes, is dark chocolate. He prefers that over the regular stuff, even without the sugar problems. I can easily live without the dark stuff. As far as I’m concerned, that isn’t real chocolate. And yes, I get the goofiness of that considering the dark stuff is more pure. I’m contrary that way.
This means when I grab a large bag of Peanut M&Ms for me, I also look for the dark chocolate peanut ones for him. For a long time, they weren’t easy to find. Now they are all over the place.
He doesn’t eat them as often as I do, or as fast. Therefore lots of dark chocolate is hanging out in the apartment. When I run out of all of my snack foods and don’t feel like going to the store at 1 am, I will raid his stash. It’s fair, he raids mine all the time. I’ll go looking for the three spoonfuls of Ben and Jerry’s I left behind, and it will be gone. Fair enough.
I’ll eat them, but I don’t appreciate them, or any dark chocolate really. Seems if I’m going to be unappreciative, the least I could do is not eat it but ugh! Chocolate! Gotta have it … and that’s how we know dark chocolate is my least favorite snack food.
Enjoy your Hump Day, my friends! I’ll see you tomorrow for the second to last challenge.
