It’s Snack Time in Wyoming! What Are We Reaching For?
It's a culinary tradition that people of all ages can't get enough of.
Listen up Cheyenne, there's a reason why I don't keep snacks in my house. They're simply irresistible. To me, snacks can be salty, sweet, sour, crunchy, chewy, bite-size or full-sized, etc. The problem is that the majority of snacks out there are not healthy for you.
And I can't control myself.
Even the so-called nutritious snacks become not-so-nutritious under my watch by the sheer amount I can eat in one sitting. That's right, raw almonds also have a serving size and it's not a full one-pound bag. So, I adhere to the "out of sight, out of mind" rule and if it's not in my house then I can't eat it.
Although, football has made it difficult to stick to that.
Not to mention, the holidays are right around the corner so basically it's the season of unhealthy eating.
With that being said, is there a snack you tend to gravitate toward? The one that, if left alone, you would devour in one sitting?
Something tells me it might be sunflower seeds.
Of course, there are several different brands of sunflower seeds out there. However, I think the O.G. of the crack-and-spit game is David. These take me right back to softball. I used to load up my cheek like a chipmunk and by the time I got to the last one, my cheek was raw from all of the salt.
Don't you just love these things?
Thrillist says that these simple, yet delicious treats are the number one snack in the state of Wyoming. And lets just say, I ate my body weight in these as a kid. If I wasn't snacking on these in the dugout, I was using them as a snack at my brothers' games.
And you know what? They still hit the spot as an adult.
