I can totally feel your breathless curiosity even from here: well? What high-end frou-frou snacks did your coworkers eat over the last 2 weeks, and which did they shun?
As of Friday morning:
ALL the Blueberry (13th listed ingredient) Vanilla (16th) Kale (15th) LivBars done got et! As did ALL the seaweed snacks (I didn’t even get to try them! Boohoo!). So what are the 7 items above that fell, somehow, even below those ‘hand made’ ‘organic’ ‘GMO-free’ etc. goodies?
- Three (3) Grab the Gold pucks. These really are pucks. I’ve even eaten a couple. Apart from being sugar calorie bombs (as granola-based items strongly tend to be), they were pretty good. Verdict: These are worse than seaweed and kale? My coworkers are sadly mistaken.
- Two (2) Go Raw Sprouted Watermelon seeds. OK, this one I kind of understand. Have not tried them myself.
- One (1) Beans. This, too does not passeth understanding.
- One (1) Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn – huh? (yea, it’s sideway – so sue me.)
So, there you are. The LivBars and seaweed did last to near the end, then, somehow, were more appealing to my coworkers than kettle corn and collapsed-star level dense granola pucks.
Further study is required.

Still laughing. Mind if I share some of your articles on my blog? New to this and not sure what the etiquette is about things.
Thanks. No problem – share anything you want.
But please link back – that’s about it, etiquette wise afaik
Certainly will Thank You Mr. Moore
Come for the pithy deconstruction of education, stay for the pithy deconstruction of snacks.
This morning, we were down to 5 units: the three granola pucks and the two packages of sprouted watermelon seeds. A coworker told me the seaweed snacks were in fact from Costco and had squatted in this frou-frou snack neighborhood – and that they were a bit salty but delicious. He also said he’d tried the sprouted watermelon seeds, and they were, in his words, a ‘death snack’: kinda tasted like pumpkin seeds, but with a nasty metallic aftertaste. The Beans! were OK according to him.
Further updates as events warrant.
