& Fridays: Book Snacking

What’s your go-to snack when you’re in a serious book reading session? The kind where the book is so good, or it’s getting toward the end and the action is really ramping up and you have no choice other than to read straight through?

I’m a big sweets eater. Maybe it’s more of a sweets problem.

My two favorite sweets to indulge in? Sno Caps, a movie theater candy that’s no longer included in most theaters – basically chocolate chips covered in sprinkles 😛

Oh yeah. Crispy M&Ms.

Oh yeah. Crispy M&M’s.

And M&M’s. My favorite flavor was discontinued for a long, long while. And guess what? THEY JUST BROUGHT IT BACK. Crispy M&M’s, my friends. Revolutionary. Basically a crisped rice cereal kind of deal INSIDE the M&M. It’s magical.

And you? Popcorn? Pretzels? Chocolate covered macadamia nuts? Are you more of a salty connoisseur, or a sweet? Fruity, perhaps? When chocolate gets to be too much, I reach for a nice apple to dunk in peanut butter, myself.

Fictitious Dishes by Dinah Fried. Publisher: Harper Design

Speaking of books and food, I recently added this great book to my seemingly endless coffee table collection. It’s called Fictitious Dishes, and it’s a collection of photographs of famous meals in literature – from Oliver Twist to Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. The meals are recreated and captured beautifully, and there are bite-sized (pun intended) facts about the author of the stories, as well as quotes from the scenes in which the meals feature.

So…hungry yet? 😉
