Mini-Meme On Snacks!

We all snack! On munchies, on dips and munchies, on hot and cold munchies! The questions today is what is your favorite munchie? What is your least favorite munchie, served at buffets, parties, and eateries?
1. I love munchies in general, but I like something that is hot, and tasty.. like bean dip! My bean dip has meat, peppers, onions, cheese, and refried beans galore! Hot sauce is a given! Fresh taco chips, or Tortilla chips needed for dipping!
2. Gagamole..I didn't misspell it it- it gags me! How an over rated high cal, high fat dip with the flavor of green mush got popular is beyond me!
Agree or disagree, let's hear your answer as to what you like or dislike in a munchie!

Gagamole...

Bwahahahahaha!!!


My likes-
1. Those mini hot dogs in BBQ sauce (I call them monkey dicks)
2. Meatballs marinated in darn near anything
3. Chips and dip, and yes that includes guacamole

Dislikes-
1. Sesame flavored munchies
2. Veges w/o some kind of fattening dip to go along with them (I'm a man, not a rabbit)
3. Salsa that is intentionally mild for those who don't like spicy foods

Jeff- You see what I mean- we all like something a bit different from the next person in that damn buffet line!

buffalodick said...

Brian- Like who wouldn't agree with you here!

sage said...

I like bean dip, but my favorite snacks are banannas, ice cream, and walnuts, sometimes separately, sometimes together...

buffalodick said...

sage- Honest answers, and good stuff!

Heff said...

I'm a WHORE for the munchies. Don't think I've ever turned any down, lol.

Chef E said...

1. It used to be two things- meatballs in BBQ sauce, and those little Eckridge sausages, because I love love love meatballs, and my mom would not buy us those little sausages, because she said they were too expensive

2. Gosh I am with Heff- although I found out what that BBQ sauce was and it grossed me out- grape jelly and Heinz Chili sauce, so I will not touch them, still love my little wienies though!

Kate said...

CHEESE CHEESE CHEESE!

Some of my favorite meals are actually just a collection of munchies. My faves often involve cheese. Something pungently olive-y works for me too.

Least fave: spamwiches – open-faced sandwich on hamburger bun spread with combination of ground spam, Velveeta, milk, ketchup, onion, and green pepper. When I was growing up, these were a Sunday night treat while we watched Ed Sullivan. When I tried them again in adulthood, it was like – what was I thinking??!!??

Actually, I go for a good guac – heavy on the avocado (preferably still a little chunky), NO mayo, some heat and citrus for punch.

Interesting mini-meme.

Vickie said...

I'm a popcorn fanatic - stovetop popped with olive oil, sea salt and something spicy mixed in. Also love apples and gorgonzola. You must not have tried a good guacamole.

I'm not very picky, so there isn't much I wouldn't try . . . I'd draw the line at bugs. :P

Green-Eyed Momster said...

I like all snacks. They're all good...Wait....Just read Brian's comment.

Ewwww!

UBERMOUTH said...

I love raw veggie platters the most but as they are apain to make I go for crisps and chocolate[the latter more out of habit though] I do like ice cream... I am with you on nachos but with hot sauce.

And I LOVE spicy chicken wings.

buffalodick said...

Heff- If it's bad for me and salty-I'm in!
ChefE- The stuff we eat, and don't admit!
Kate- I'm whichcha!
Eggplant- The west coasters eat avacatos like they are actually food...
Vick- I've had good and bad, and I don't like it!
Momster- I could eat a bug, but why would I?
Uber- We could eat together easily!

Pam said...

I don't know that I've ever eaten a munchie that I didn't like. As long as it doesn't contain liver or lima beans I'm good to go.

Akelamalu said...

I try not to snack anymore because I really need to lose weight but if I did it would have to be Pork Scratchings or Marmite flavoured Cashews. I know, not everyone's cup of tea but I love them!

G-Man said...

FAVORITE..Wings! Cooked any manner. Hot, Mild, Cajun, Blackened, Baked, Fried, Grilled, Plain..I Love Wings!

Least Favorite...Pretzels.

MarmiteToasty said...

I LOVE anything that one can pick up with ones fingers :)

sheri... said...

wow, just one??? would have to be popcorn with sharp cheddar and taco seasoning sprinkled over the top. nuke for about a minute...i know, strange, but hey-what can i say?

dislikes would be pudding...

and about that guacamole, buffalodick...what you don't eat leaves more for me ;)

Lea Ann said...

popcorn...popcorn and then I also like popcorn. Plus I like to put a slice of of Tillamook Cheddar Cheese on a wedge of Red Delicious Apple. As far as hot, love meatballs.

Gagamole??? LOL I happen to love Guac, but then again, love Avocados.

buffalodick said...

Pam- I really like liver pate!
Ake- Pork rinds can be real good, or real bad!
G-man- Pretzels are kind of a non-event to me, too..
Marmy- Finger food is what we call it here...
sheri- I know most people like it, but not me!
Lea Ann- I try to stay away from popcorn, as I load it with salt and butter..

John McElveen said...

We are too much alike-- I just went and spent 83.00--yes 83.00 on just snacks for the past Long weekend. Now granted I planned to have a Softball/Baseball TV marathon, and the wife was gonna catch up on all her TV'oed stuff--exciting aren't we.....

turns out it was 99%

BEAN DIP, Cheese and Salsa, and all kinds of Doritos and Frito's scoops! plus Cokes and Gatorade--YES! we must replace our fluids while WATCHING Athletes!

2.I agree on the "Coctail" Dogs in a great sauce,
and the

3.Meatballs. You just can't eat enough of those bad boys!

Church used to be an awesome place to snag different varieties of those!

Least--

Gagamole--is the most awesomest (?word) description I've ever heard
I just can't get past it.

BBQ Chips-- I LOVE EM-- but NOBODY makes a good, or Hot enough one! I keep trying and keep getting fooled.

Pretty little cucumber or dainty anythings served on Silver. Just give me meat n stuff!

John

buffalodick said...

Thank God somebody else agrees a sick looking green paste is nothing to write a poem about! I hate cucumbers too, for what it's worth....

730A- I don't know what you are saying! Thanks for checking in...

Tracie said...

I like almost everything as long as it doesn't have mayo in it.

Popcorn, wings, potato skins (loaded), all types of sweets, any kind of chips and dip, salsa...Seriously, I like a little of everything.

Barbara said...

I try not to (says she,lying through her teeth) but ice cream has it, hands down.

Least favorite? veggie dips.

buffalodick said...

Tracie- I never used to use Mayo, but now I cook with it a bit..
Barb- We go in streaks around here on ice cream..we like it, but if it's in the house, we polish it off quickly!

jolie-jordan said...

Whatever hits the mood. And usually combos. I go in streaks with food and snacks too.

An old stand by is fruit and cheese as a combo. I like toast with hot cocoa. Donuts or danish with coffee. Sometimes a bowl of cereal will be my snack of choice. Back in the day when I had better teeth it was things like nuts or popcorn (hot, salty and buttered popcorn) and I love chocolate covered nuts or raisins with a cup of hot tea.

Sometimes when we go out to eat I'll order Hors d'oeuvers for my meal. Things like shrimp cocktail, or a deep-fried mix of veggies with a side of blue cheese to dip, or onino rings and home made fries, stuffed mushrooms, potato skins, cheesy fries, pickled herring and so forth. Now if those things were sitting around here I'd choose them. I like little bits and bobs of different things.(S)

I dislike most store bought cookies.

buffalodick said...

J.J.- Store bought cookies( unless Loft House!) are all pretty as tasty as shingles!

Chris said...

My favorite munchies is ABT's, I LOVE those for snacks.

Least favorite, is shrimp cocktail. Cold improperly cooked shrimp, yuck.

Intense Guy said...

I'm with you on Gagamole... the avocado needs to be banned...

I like anything BBQed to the point of tear apart tenderness... Cold shrimp cocktail - frosty clams on a half shell... crab dip...

I'm not much on over-prepared 200 ingredient anything....
