If you haven't seen my recent status on Facebook (seriously, you're not watching my every move? DAMN YOU PEOPLE, I MAKE IT SO EASY FOR YOU AND STILL - YOU DON'T STALK!).
Anyhoo, my status is: "Nat is eating raisins out of boredom. Because raisins are not an 'eat on purpose food'."
Really, who ever craves a raisin (anorexic Holywood starlets excluded)? A raisin baked into something maybe. But on it's own? Never.
It got me to thinking. What are other snack foods you'd eat of boredom - not necessarily because you crave them?
-boring cereal (straight up sugarless, flavourless oatmeal)
-fruitcake (there are a lot of ingredients going on in that bastard, but can you really get a fruitcake craving like you can for chocolate?)
-peanuts in the shell (too much work. More of a bar 'eat cuz you're drinkin'' snack)
-prunes/dried apricots (disguised as a snack but really designed to make you take the browns to the superbowl)
-carrot sticks. ON THEIR OWN.
I hate boring snacks.
