I just listened to the Combos podcast, and I am pissed enough that I could punch you both in the face (assuming your team of security guards would let me near you... And to be honest, they probably would, because they're probably pissed too.) A 3 and a 4?!?!?!? I normally defend your ratings to everyone that argues (and they are aplenty) but this I cannot abide! Oh yeah, and cheese isn't something that people normally mix with pretzels? Maybe not in fucking Canada, you hack! To think, my son used to look up to you two for your journalistic integrity. What an idiot.
Your passion is noted. You are, however, a fucking idiot.
Can THE Michael Ian BLACK answer this question for me? (Sorry, Tom).
Can you talk about Chex Mix one episode? Think of all the different flavors in just one bag. There's also cheesy chex mix, chocolate turtle, hot and spicy, etc. That multiplies the flavors by at least the power of 3. (Flavor^3)
Michael answering: I am predisposed towards liking the original Chex Mix. Have not tried all the other flavors but whoever came up with the original formula deserves some sort of prize. Maybe a ribbon.
This may be asking too much but how about a foreign delicacy? Personally, I was thinking of Canada's own... the ketchup chip. It's rare, it's delicious and it would educate American snack enthusiasts on what the world can offer.
Great request. We are open to foreign delicacies. Best to ship them to MATES Worldwide HQ
Do you mind if I add a link to the new MATES blog over on my http://SuccotashShow.com blog? (I actually already did, but the instructions here seem quite clear that we need to put things in the form of a question...)
2/3 of the US snack market is kids. How bout a kid-friendly episode (snacks+bleeps) that I can listen to w/ my 6 yr old?
Fruit Roll-Ups? Fruit by the Foot? Marshmallows+Raisins? You pick the snack and tell my kid what's good for 'em.
Great idea. Family friendly episode featuring family friendly snack.
You guys might have missed the boat on original Bugles. Original Bugles are meant to be eaten filled with cheese from an aerosol can. That's why they're hallow. Love the show...but disappointed that two snacking professionals somehow missed this. Perhaps it's a regional thing - Midwest.
This is a tremendous suggestion. How did we know about this? Bugles with aerosol cheese. Fantastic idea and we apologize for this omission from our podcast.
how do you spell 'ginelli'?
are you familiar with this very British ginelli(sp?)? http://img200.imageshack.us/img200/3989/screenshot20110501at184.png
The correct spelling is the very un-British “Janelli.” For viewers (I know they’re not viewers) Janelli means “to put a liquid in your mouth while still chewing the food you have just put in your mouth.” Note: the order of consumption MUST be food, then liquid. Also, water does not count. Used in a sentence: “I Janellied some chocolate milk with my Nacho Cheese Doritos.
