Ok, ok. We're all well aware that compiled rankings like this list of Little Debbie's (arguable) deliciousness are ENTIRELY created to enrage and stir up controversy, but I fell right into this one, hook, line and sinker. And any asscl*wn who has the audacity to not only rank Nutty Bars 17th, but then proceed to degrade these slabs of chocolatey peanut buttery perfection, needs to be stopped.
Yes, my opinion is slightly (fine, massively) colored by early 90s summer camp nostalgia, but STILL. But Nutty Bars strike that covetable salty / sweet balance, bring the crunch with striated wafer perfection, and follow the ultimate two-to-a-pack-is-better-than-one principle of deliciousness (although for sharing? hah, as if). So why the hate?
Aaaaaaand I digress. But who's with me here, guys? Even if you're not as emotionally invested in Nutty Bars as I am, no doubt the Cosmic Brownies degradation (27th place?!?!?) will also ruffle a few feathers... Serious Eaters - what's your rebuttal?
Little Debbie Snack Foods, Ranked
So... massive dilemma on my hands. I'm hosting the first of hopefully many "book club" (except with movies!) nights for my lady-friends this coming Sunday. The premise is to round out the weekend on a ridiculously upbeat note (and pretend we don't have work in the morning) once a month with a few glasses of wine, quality company, and a solid movie. The host can either serve some form of dinner or just have everyone bring something to share (nibbles, bottle of wine, dessert, etc).
I want to kick my new club off in the best possible way, so was thinking of serving some kind of low-key family style dinner. Definitely don't want to spend my entire Sunday prepping, but also want to be a quality host. We're all late 20s with relatively adventurous palates, but classics never seem to fail to impress either. We'll also be eating on the couch before and during the movie, so don't want it to be too messy.
Was thinking a simple but well done pasta (aglio e olio maybe?), ratatouille, a big salad, crusty bread, and something deliciously chocolate for dessert might be a good idea. But would LOVE some suggestions!!!
ok, so call me a bit needy (fine, a lot), but it breaks my heart to see the "a sandwich a day" feature so less often these days. a sign that i spend wayyy too much time on this site? mayhaps. but for serious, i miss that daily dose of deliciousness (say that 5 times fast!) like whoa. and it makes me reminisce about all the inspiration that's come to my belly as a result.
so... in lieu of our regular fix, i ask you, serious eaters -- if you had to pick one (yep, only one) sandwich as your main squeeze for the rest of your badass existence, what would make the cut? be as specific about the crunchy, juicy, cheesy, gloriously indulgent and condiment-slathered particulars as you'd like. bring it!
so... i'm in the city for 36 hours and am required to track down the best black & white cookies on the planet (both to bring to florida for the parentals and, let's be honest, to stuff in my face). never found a legitimately revelatory one when living here, so thought it might not hurt to ask the experts. helpp!!!
I'd be lying if I said I wasn't experiencing at least minor symptoms of withdrawal. Pa pa pa please tell me he's on some ridiculous "I will get to the bottom of the longstanding MD 20/20 vs. Night Train vs. Thunderbird debate" walkabout and will report back with his righteous tales of awesome soon. But really soon, mmmkay? Not sure how much more of this a (relatively) rational human being can take...
