A Few Favorite Things

Todays post-nap afternoon snack:

Barsy’s smoky almonds mixed with Sunspire chocolate SunDrops, mini pretzels, dried cherries and Barbara’s Bakery Shredded Spoonfuls. It’s like Chex Mix, but easier. And tastier.

A cup of Peace Coffee Pollinator made in the one-cup Bodum French press my husband got me last year.

A serving of Ben and Jerry’s new flavor, Late Night Snack: Vanilla Bean ice cream with a salty caramel swirl and fudge-covered potato-chip clusters. I’m here to tell you: it’s also delicious in the afternoon! (Perhaps I should try it for breakfast tomorrow? You know, in the interest of science?)

Ben and Jerry's Late Night Snack: good all day!

    I think it was the fudge covered potato chips that turned me off. I’m still a Cherry-Garcia girl.

    I love Cherry Garcia, too, and not just because I was a Deadhead for five years. My favorite Ben and Jerry’s flavor is Chocolate Therapy which is something like chocolate ice cream with a chocolate pudding swirl and chocolate chunks. But I have a big thing for salty/sweet/crunchy/soft that the Late Night Snack hits right on. I sometimes crumble pretzels over vanilla ice cream and drizzle with maple syrup.
