Snacks are great.

Simple snacks are even better.

It can get a bit boring eating the same snacks over and over again, though.


Redditor ejsfsc07 asked:

"What simple snack should more people try?"

Hummus And Anything

"​Chips and hummus, naan and hummus, celery and hummus, grape tomatoes and hummus, spoon and hummus. Hummus."

-Pad_TyTy

"Agreed. After trying hummus for the first time, I realized it is the best dip ever."

-leatherwolf89

"When I have left over dinner rolls I make mini hummus sandwiches for a snack. I always have hummus now it's so good on so many things."

-diiejso

Try New Combos

​"Apples and cheese or apples and peanut butter. Also, oreos and peanut butter."

-Apocia

"I keep forgetting I can mix apples and peanut butter. Do you advise smooth or chunky peanut butter?"

-Alive-Reaction-7266

"I've always preferred smooth for a snack like this. The crunchy, imo, can overpower the apple, and I like to be able to taste both equally."

-Apocia

Toasted Is Amazing

"​coconut shavings, its weirdly addictive and really good."

-BOBBLE8567

Not Just For 2am

"​Shredded cheese"

-No-biggy

"In my bachelor days I would occasionally have a bag of shredded mozzarella for lunch. Normally resulted in me pooping a brick."

​"Roasted peanuts, healthy, cheap and tasty."

-ALLIES_Coffin

Don't Knock It Til You Try It

"​Cottage cheese as dip for corn chips."

-TomThe Movie

"Also, cottage cheese as a dip for nice crunchy blackpepper potato chips. Kettle cooked are best."

-Quillemote

Sweet And Salty

​"Grilled cheese with blueberry preserves on top."

-strawberrychapstick

"Most types of jam, jelly, preserves go well on a grilled cheese. I like to open them up immediately when I take them out of the pan and spoon it inside before the cheese cools enough to seal the sandwich such. It's easier to eat with it inside than on top."

-diiejso

Blueberries And Yogurt, But Better

​"Take a toothpick, insert into blueberry, dip in your favorite yougurt, place on sheet/dish and freeze."

-Skarface08

"This combines two of my youngest’s favorite foods. And makes them like one of her other favorite categories, frozen foods. Definitely have to try!"

-ValhallaMama

"Put on some parchment paper before for easy removal. Its really good and healthy!"

-Skarface08

Keep It Simple​

"​Grape or cherry tomatoes. I usually have a big box on the go."

-bandanasarebest

Or Get A Bit Fancy

"​Pimento cheese on foccacia bread. easy to make and f*cking slaps"

-iWasALazyDog

"I used to think pimento cheese was gross, but it's so good if done right."

-JimmyCheezSneez

A Bit More Work, But Totally Worth It

​"Apple sandwiches. Cut up an apple and then sauté in butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar, when that’s done set it on a plate. Get some bread, remove the crust and flatten it a little. Put some of the filling in the bread, fold in half and toast it in the pan you sautéed the apples in, top with powdered sugar or caramel sauce and enjoy."

-Ratchel1916

Yogurt Combos Are Always A Win

"​Yogurt topped with frozen fruit and granola."

-pc0le

​Put It On The Ritz

-HoosierBabe

"If done right, it's the best thing ever. Not too greasy, with a fried egg and some cheese on top, absolutely incredible."

-JimmyCheezSneez

Dried And Delicious

​"Biltong. It's a delicious south african snack that should become a lot more popular. Not vegan friendly, though(obviously)"

-onionboi007

Veggies All The Way

"​Uncooked Cabbage, spinach, or broccolis, whaaaat can't help it you know."

-Jeremykyb

Leftover Love

"​Cold baked beans and potato chips. Sweet and salty. My grandma always packs me the leftover baked beans after cookouts and such because she knows I love them."

-ValhallaMama

Spam, Spam, Spam, And Spam

"Spam sammich and mustard."

-KarenK1964

Everything Is Better With Bacon

Turns out not all of us are interested in being benevolent Gods.

It's Reddit, so we're not exactly surprised, but we're suddenly glad divine cosmic powers don't work this way.

Are you like me and the 1990s were only 10 years ago?

Yes, I can do the math, but 1990 being 32 years ago still seems unreal.

Why is that?

Maybe it's the fact it marked the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st.

Either way, it just doesn't seem that long ago and the nostalgia for the trappings of the 1990s is strong.

You're probably going to be beat over the head with this as you read this charming article but bedbugs are a nightmare and they are always lurking (in the back of my mind) when I think about purchasing some items secondhand.

Some years ago, a relative brought in a stuffed animal and some other items off the street. Within days we had a bedbug issue.

It was thankfully resolved very quickly–good thing it was caught so early–but let's just say I dealt with phantom itch for a while.

Nooo thank you.
