It’s Snack Time in Colorado! What Are We Reaching For?
It's a culinary tradition that people of all ages can't get enough of.
Listen up Fort Collins, there's a reason why I don't keep snacks in my house. They're simply irresistible. To me, snacks can be salty, sweet, sour, crunchy, chewy, bite-size or full-sized, etc. The problem is that the majority of snacks out there are not healthy for you.
And I can't control myself.
Even the so-called nutritious snacks become not-so-nutritious under my watch by the sheer amount I can eat in one sitting. That's right, raw almonds also have a serving size and it's not a full one-pound bag. So, I adhere to the "out of sight, out of mind" rule and if it's not in my house then I can't eat it.
Although, football has made it difficult to stick to that.
Not to mention, the holidays are right around the corner so basically it's the season of unhealthy eating.
With that being said, is there a snack you tend to gravitate toward? The one that, if left alone, you would devour in one sitting?
Something tells me it might be Cosmic Brownies.
Ok, I know what you're thinking, "we live in Colorado... are these brownies a little extra?"
Nope. I'm talking about Little Debbie Cosmic Brownies.
Don't you just love these things?
Thrillist says that these colorful, decadent brownies are the number one snack in the state of Colorado. And lets just say, I ate my body weight in these as a kid. My mom was notorious for putting delectable Little Debbie treats in our school lunches.
And you know what? They still hit the spot as an adult.
