Mrs. May's Snacks

Can’t get enough of these nut snack things. It might be one of those things where you can’t fathom how good they are until you’ve actually had them. It’s definitely one of those things where you need to like nuts. But everyone sez that nuts are a healthy snack. And these in particular, from a cali co called Mrs. May’s, are pretty much all nut (nut + rice malt + cane juice, which forms a very subtle brittle-y crust) like a payday, but nuttier. Mrs. May’s R avail at wholesale stores, at WF, and at SuperT (methinks they’re also doing SuperT’s private-label Archer Farms’ brand cuz they look identical). They come in a buncha flavors; the pumpkin's awesome.

I GENERALLY GET MY NUTS FROM EATING SQUIRRELS, BUT I MAY TRY THESE, BECAUSE SQUIRRELS USUALLY DON'T COME IN PUMPKIN SEED FLAVOR.

now that you've thrown down the gauntlet, i have no choice but to respond, to perform, to STAND THAT BEER CAN ON ITS EDGE. i shall, i MUST

but sigh can i never just celebrate what i've accomplished already? can i not simply revel in the wonders of the dime? (affixed, btw, by common scotch tape. inspired by the likes of penn & teller, i'm unmasking the magic!)

What a silly mutt! Tinkerbell had an IQ of 80, which is very high for a dog. Then again, she was a purebred.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO HAVE A DOG WITH A HIGHER IQ THAN YOURS?

Just out of curiosity, TG, can you let me know what the carbohydrate content is on these? I've got be mindful of protein/carb balance, and have learned the hard way that some of these nut snacks -- especially the ones with ingedients like, oh, say, rice malt and cane juice -- make them off limits for diabetics.

If you click on the title, the link takes you to Mrs. May's website where you can click on products and then choose a page for each item, which tells you about carb content and whatnot.

Hey Hound Dog... do the Squirrel Nut Zippers get caught in your teeth?

Thanks, Twisted Link!

And very good line, bk.

Hey, not bad! 9 grams of protein and 8 grams of carbs in 7 dime-sized pieces, according to the site (and TG's expert photography, of course). TG: is it possible to stop eating them after 7 pieces? I see a Costco run in my future, and a new padlock on the pantry.

kirk, my fave new store has them in a variety pack of individual-serving pouches. almonds, cashews, and the above-mentioned pumpkin seeds. the fact that you have to rip open a new pouch helps limit "portion control" ... slightly

7-piece individual servings?

ack - i just looked at the back of this pouch. it's TWO servings. what a crock. it looks like a potato chip bag. wouldn't you think it would be one serving.

I found something like that in Chinatown a few months back. It's kind of like a not-too-sweet nut brittle. For some reason they were very pricey for something that I usually throw out at Halloween.

Is Mrs. May related to Ms. Ery?
