Laura, the Snack Monster

A disgusting amount of sweet and savory snacks
Corn Bo's, pistachio nougat, Asian Jellies, truffles, German chocolates, Belgian chocolates,
an assortment of tea biscuits, chocolate wafers, sesame candies, Nagaraya nuts... 
So, I am pretty thrilled. I just spent an hour in two of my favorite food stores in town and stocked up on all the yummy stuff I like. And, I didn't have to feel guilty or bad taking the total out of our monthly food budget. Let me explain.

My husband foolishly bet that Psyduck was the Pokemon who carried a leek with him all the time. When I told him it was Farfetch'd, he may have felt threatened, so he hastily bet me all the snacks I wanted.

In my head, Steve Perry's Foolish Heart started playing.. You've been wrong before, don't be wrong anymore. Boo-yah.

That'll teach him to challenge me with original Pokemon trivia!


P.S. I promise I didn't eat all of that in one sitting. It'll take me a few weeks to finish all this delicious goodness.

What are your favorite snacks?


  1. i love it! A pokemon bet. I always call my bf squirtle both cause the name sounds funny but also it was my fav pokemon. My favorite snack would certainly be gummi worms. I can't keep them in the house cause I eat them ALL in one sitting. I don't have your willpower, if those snacks were sitting in my cupboard they would be gone in two or three days.

  2. THIS IS AMAZING! Now, I am craving cheez-its and gummi bears.

  3. Nice work! I have a salty tooth - it's pretty rare for me to crave sweets or chocolate (although it does happen) so I'm usually a chips and popcorn and pretzels gal.

  4. That is the best story I have ever heard. Seriously. Winning that bet just for bragging rights would have been enough, but snacks is even better! Congrats on being the better-versed Pokemon trainer, Laura.

  6. Haha! Congrats on winning the bet:) Skittles are my favorite!

  13. My favorite snacks are pastries, and chocolate anything. I have a HUGE sweet tooth. I just ate strawberries, and chocolate chips for a snack lol. It's my healthier version of chocolate covered strawberries.

  14. I'm liking the odds of winning this bet given that you seem to be a hard core Pokemon fan! Oh, and pass me some of that pistachio nougat please! OMG, my mouth is watering! :)

  15. I love Newman's Own Dark Chocolate Espresso bars the most but also Kancho cookies are awesome but also because they're the most wrong name for a chocolate filled cookie ever.

  16. All these sweeties are gorgeous, personaly, I never can resist to candies, so I don't buy too much of them in the same time !

  17. Ooh, I want to win a bet like that! My most favorite snacks ever are Cheez-Its and Kit Kats. I could eat an endless amount of those.

    PS - I like the new (well, new to me at least!) blog design! :)

  20. omg so jealous of all your snacks <3 love me some asian savory and sweet goodies!! and btw, psyduck was one of my fav pokemon, so is pikachu, & togapi (i think thats how you spell those names lol)!! brings back memories haha!!

  21. Oh man, a bet for snacks! :D I don't know much at all about Pokemon, but in my schooldays a friend and I used to make those funny Pikachu noises when we'd see each other. Hehe.

    I. Love. Snacks. I'm weak in the sight of chocolate candies (it's very hard for me to deem any one candy bar as my favorite... bad, I know) and potato chips. I also got nuts for tea biscuits and for these Japanese crispy noodle snacks (called Baby Star or something like that, hehe).

  22. you sure do know your pokemon trivia! the winning prize is making my mouth droool, so many sweet delights~!
