        1. re: mojoeater

          how could i forget twix might as well throw that in there too :-) thanks for replying everyone.

        2. It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine 'cause I'm with my friends snackin' on:
          - biscuits and gravy for breakfast with cheesy eggs
          - chili dip with full-fat cream cheese on the bottom and a can of Hormel on top with good cheddar cheese and plenty of Tostitos scoops (the snack that eats like a meal!)
          - a Dairy Queen sundae with hot fudge, caramel and whipped cream
          - Munchos potato crisps (I have never outgrown these from childhood)

          And we're listening to 70s and 80s music, singing along loudly with our favorites 'cause we just don't care anymore (actually, we sometimes do this regardless of it being the end of the world--sometimes alcohol is involved). ;)

              I thought I was the only other adult who ate Munchos. ;) Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone.

              1. re: kattyeyes

                I've not eaten them for a while, but really like them. This is hysterical - and particularly amusing to me as I live around the corner from Patrick Murphy market, and shop there often - almost always keeping an eye out for Munchos.

                  I'm still laughing--thanks for sharing. We apparently have our own unofficial club, we Muncho-lovers. I live in CT and can find them easily--they're right in Stop & Shop. And often in gas stations that have attached convenience stores in the "BIG GRAB" bag. Mmmmmm! I've been saved from starvation on many a hungry day on the run with a BIG GRAB of these little goodies!

                  1. re: kattyeyes

                    BIG Muncho fan here also!

                    Hard to find where we live, so I do indulge when we go state side.

                      I first had them when on a snowy night when I was working at a bookstore some years back. The adjunct university English instructor with whom I was working was taking turns with me running next door to the drug store/convenience store to get snacks, since there were few customers.

                      In a four hour shift, we ate four bags.

                        Go to the head of the class, jmckee--they are truly addictive little goodies, aren't they?! And talking about them over the past several days just means I'm going to have to get some on my next supermarket run...end of the world or not! :)

                What the hell are Limon Cheetos? Love the firey ones, but never heard of Limon. Are they different than the red-dusted gems I have come to know?

                1. re: Pylon

                  There are regular "Firey" and "Firey Limon". If you like the regular then you'll definately love the other, so addictive...they could be a regional offering, I know they are avialable all over Texas....
