People Describe The Weirdest Snacks They Enjoy Making

People can get pretty creative when it comes to food, especially snacks.

There's just something about the quick, utilitarian nature of snacking—which often involves whatever you can find around the kitchen—that leads to some really individualism.


Redditor ThrewTheDoor asked:

"What’s a weird little snack you like making for yourself?"

Blue Milk

"A glass of whole milk(skim, low fat etc... don't work) and an ungodly amount of frozen blueberries in a tall glass."

"The milk like freezes to the blueberries In a cool way and it sounds wierd but I've been doing this since I was like 10."

"Also I eat it with a spoon, I don't just drink it."

- Rock_Pond

"Put frozen blueberries in a bowl. Pour half and half or cream on top, it solidifies almost as good as those hard-shell ice cream toppings!"

"Sprinkle a bit of sugar on top and it's a freakin' delicious dessert."

- TangoDeltaFoxtrot

Mmmmmmaple

"Vanilla ice cream, maple syrup and cinnamon."

"I call it French Toast Ice cream. Soo good."

- Tiefighter21

Crumbs

"When there are only a few tortilla chips and crumbs at the bottom of the bag, I crush them all really well and pour them into a small bowl. Then I add a couple spoonfuls of salsa, stir, and begin shoveling."

- Greigh_flanuhl

"This is essentailly chilaquiles. Some time try it for brunch with an egg."

- stuck_in_traffic

"My dad used to call it Mexican cereal."

- corpsreviver

Po-Ta-Toes

"Mashed potato pizza."

"I spread some mashed potatoes on a pizza tray and bake them at 400 degrees until they are golden brown on top, then add pizza sauce, mozzarella and whatever leftovers I've got laying around. Then bake in the oven for another 15min at 400."

"It's kind of like a Shepherd's Pie Pizza."

- GoliathPrime

"Croutons. Just croutons. Maybe I'll dip them in some ranch if I'm feeling fancy."

- CatLadyGrip

"And other salad toppings: wonton strips, tortilla strips, crispy jalapeños..."

- 3plantsonthewall

"I’ll have all the sesame sticks, thank you very much."

- Crunchy__Frog

"Funny story, when my brother and I were kids (in the early 80’s) salad bars were starting to become a big thing. My brother always wanted the salad bar when we went out to eat."

"He would only get shredded cheese, croutons and bacon bits. That’s it. No lettuce. Just a bowl of cheese, croutons and bacon bits."

- DogsCatsKids_helpMe

"The Italian War Crime"

"Take a tortilla"

"Put pizza sauce on it, add Italian seasoning, apply 6 pepperoni"

"Roll a cheese stick in all of that"

"Throw it in the microwave for 25-30 seconds"

"Enjoy"

- placeholderNull

Dip In

"I dip nacho cheese Doritos in cottage cheese."

- SSDestiel

"ME TOO!!!! Sour cream too."

"Cottage cheese is an underrated thing to mix other stuff with; it also actually melts decently well. I sometimes put it in burritos and melt it."

- ThrewTheDoor

"I use Fritos Scoops to eat cottage cheese. Edible spoons."

- LakotaGrl

Legit Weird

"Quaker Oat Squares cereal eaten one-by-one with a piece of cheddar cheese."

- aabbboooo

"Me and my grandma used to eat vanilla wafers with slices of cheese on it. Such a good memory I was just reminded of."

"Most of these snacks aren't actually weird. But this. This is weird."

PB & Pop

"PB&J except it's peanut butter spread between 2 toasted strawberry poptarts."

Chocolate Cheesy Crunch

- scooties2

Some of these weren't too weird, but others...

We don't talk about Bruno... and all of the other crazies in the family.

Maybe that is why that song struck such a chord... we can all relate to family secrets and family crazy.

Even though every generation has gotten a little more open and willing to discuss trauma, we still have a long way to go.

There is something to be said for not airing out all of the dirty laundry.

People Share Which Survival Tips Could Actually Get You Killed

For the most part, survival tips have been taught to us from a young age. We know to call 911 if there's an emergency and to put pressure on a bleeding wound. Boy Scouts know to be always prepared. Hikers know to conserve water, campers know how to build a fire, and anyone who spends a great deal of time outdoors knows how to locate shelter.

However, those skills are pretty basic. If you get into real trouble, you'll need more specific survival skills in order to get yourself out of trouble.

Some people can give you survival tips that can mean the difference between life and death. Others may give you tips that seem to make sense, but will probably only lead to death. It can be a great skill to learn the difference.

That's probably the thought process that led Redditor scarredforlife164 to ask:

"What "survival tips" would probably get you killed?"

There are certain things you should not be skimpy about when it comes time to buy them. For example: toiletries. Why in the world would you want to use somebody else's toothbrush? A used toothbrush, we should underscore.

You'd run away screaming if you saw a used one sitting on a shelf at Goodwill, wouldn't you? Of course you would. You would immediately go to the pharmacy and pick up a brand new one, like a smart person.

People Imagine How They'd React If Someone Offered Them $50K For Their Pet

I've got a decent amount of animals - some fish, turtles, dogs, etc. - but out of all of them, Optimus Prime is definitely *my* pet.

He's kind of a jerk to everyone else, but a with me he's a the biggest bestest beefaroni boy.

That is an outright lie, this dog is awfully behaved and taught himself how to open doors so he stays letting mosquitos in the house and air conditioning all of South Florida instead of just my living room. I just have a soft spot for him.

But here's the thing - soft spot or not, if someone offered me $50k for this dog, my reaction wouldn't be horror because I just love my "shmoopies" and even can't imagine. I'm not that privileged.
