I’m sure you’ve seen those commercials about “You’re not you when you’re hungry”. Around here we refer to that as being hangry, and let me tell you – hangry is real. Like, tears-for-no-reason, wearing-your-heart-on-your-sleeve kind of real.
I’ve always carried snacks and drinks for Bubbles, either in my bag or in hers. One day as I handed her a fruit pouch while stuck in a particularly long line, I wondered why I didn’t have any snacks of my own. I certainly could have used a little something to sooth the beast at that particular moment.
Since then, I’ve made sure I always have something tucked somewhere. And often that something is a SNICKERS®. Not only am I treating my sweet tooth, but since they’re filled with nuts (and in some cases, peanut butter), I’m getting some protein to help satisfy me longer.
I can’t just leave them lying around, though, or hubby (who is also a SNICKERS fan) will swipe them. So I’ve come up with some creative stash spots in places I’m most likely to reach for one. For example, for those times I’m the navigator instead of driver, I keep a SNICKERS Almond in the glove compartment along with extra tissues, CDs for Bubbles, the tire gauge and backup sunglasses.
When we’re going out for a walk, whether it’s around the block or around the zoo, I always pack a few essentials into the compartment on Bubbles’ stroller. If you were to peek inside, you’d find sunglasses, sunscreen, my phone, and a SNICKERS. Usually I either pack a few minis, or larger bars that have two pieces inside so I can share with hubby (I’m not the only one that can get hangry).
If you’re also not you when you’re hungry, why not tell SNICKERS about it for your chance to win? Enter the SNICKERS “Who are you when you’re hungry?” contest by uploading a personal photo or video from your Computer, Facebook, Instagram or use the SNICKERS Meme Generator to create something new! Voting will be at noon on 5/11/15 and ends at 11:59:59AM ET on 7/15/15.
Oh and SNICKERS (grab yours at a local Speedway) aren’t just for snacking. They’re great in a lot of recipes too, like my SNICKERS Salad recipe. You can see more great SNICKERS recipes and fun stories on the SNICKERS social hub.
