what were (are) your favorite bed time snacks?

The recent passing of my grandfather led us to a discussion of bedtime snacks we remember from summer visits to his farm. Some of our favorites - big bowls of ice cream, corn flakes with milk straight from the barn, and bowls of crushed saltine creackers with milk, eaten like cereal.

These days I have some fruit or popcorn with my hubby. Last night tho it was a cup of decaf and a chocolate cupcake in honor of my grandfather. :)

what did you/do you eat at bedtime?

  1. Since I became an adult, I can count on one hand the number of times I've had a bed time snack, assuming you don't count a cup of tea. When I was a kid we used to eat ice cream or share a bag of pistachios/bowl of popcorn, but now my husband and I end dinner between 8 and 9 so I'm never hungry for more food...but then I usually go to bed by 10.

    1. On the weekends, my hubby and I like to split a dark chocolate bar. Or we will snack on some vegan gelato (new obsession). During the week, I have a small glass of almond milk before bed.

      1. A jar of natural super creamy peanut butter... And a spoon. :)

        1. I'm trying to break that habit by eating dinner a bit later, but my go-to bedtime snacks are:

          Saltines with dairy butter or peanut butter
          Wheaties or Go-lean Crunch with milk
          Toast and butter

          1. Trix or Reese's Peanut Butter Puffs or Frosted Flakes or homemade granola or Froot Loops or Kashi or Honey Nut Cheerios... with almond milk.

            I grew up on Oat Flakes and Shredded Wheat. I think I'm making up for lost time in the kid's cereal department. Though if they still made those Oat Flakes, I'd be on them in a heartbeat.
            I hate hate hate waking up hungry in the middle of the night, and we eat dinner about 6. By the time I go to bed at 11, I'm ready for a snack.
