hey guys. in reference to your future 'hot chips' podcast, you should hook yourselves up with some of these. they're the only spicy thing i've ever found that i can't eat very much of.
i SEE the fucking sun chips in the promo picture, but i haven't heard you rate the sun chips. as a faithful viewer (and i am definitely a viewer) and fanatic eater of the sun chip-- my question is: where are the fucking sun chip ratings? swell.
Dammit, you need to calm down! Do you hear me!! You need to CALM DOWN RIGHT NOW!!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY SNACKS ARE OUT THERE!!! WE WILL GET TO SUN FREAKING CHIPS WHEN WE GET TO THEM!! SO JUST CALM. DOWN. RIGHT. NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
With the recent news that foreign snacks are being considered for MATES I would love to hear an episode focused around the "Crunchie" candy bar of England. It spurned quite the debate here at my office when I proclaimed it to be better than Snickers. I received a vote of confidence from one coworker but mostly our office staff telling me how stupid I was and one physical attack from Bruce in accounting who described me as a turncoat.
If you give me the address to MATES Worldwide Headquarters I would be willing to mail you a few of the candy bars.
Bruce is gonna get his, mark my words. The address is on the first podcast, i believe.
Mike and Tom,
I'd like to hear your opinions on various "fruit snacks" (i.e. gushers, fruit by the foot, and fruit roll-ups). I am an adult and still purchase several boxes every time I food shop. By the way, Tastykakes are made here in Philadelphia, we send all the expired products to New Hampshire. Why? Because fuck them, that's why.
"Roll Ups". In the snack game, they’re just called "Roll Ups".
Way to nail the folks in New Hampshire. Livin’ Free, eatin’ expired Tastykakes. Well played, philadelphia.
I bought a can of peanuts for my office. At the end of my workday I tuck them away on a shelf (partially hidden). I recently noticed that someone has been eating my snack!! I can understand if I had a bowl out on my desk. That says, go ahead, take one. But mine were partially hidden!! That says, DON'T TOUCH. What is the office etiquette on snacks? How should I handle what I consider thievery? LOVE your podcast.
You need to get a little reconnaissance and surveillance going. And then you need to bring out the hammer and the hammer’s helper on the offender.
My secret hope?—The late night janitorial culprit. Most romances start this way.
I am pretty much in love with both of you...at the same time. I would love to suggest multiple snacks; Oreos, Redvines, Famous Amous cookies, Skittles, Rice Krispies...I mean I think I'm getting ahead of myself here but I'm just SO excited.
Who wears sunglasses better? (Rank the following)
Finn (the Pepp Farm Cheddar Goldfish)
Mr. Peanut (yes. we're counting the monocle)
Please include all relevant snacks spoke-personalities (who wear sunglasses) that I may have forgotten.
I’m not doing the sunglass ranking until you throw Mr Peanut out on his arse.
Please review Chips Ahoy CHEWY chocolate chip cookies, if you even consider this a snack. It might just be a dessert, sounds like this could be a heated discussion?! Love the podcast, keep up the good work fellas.
Total snack. Used to pound back a bag or two on the train on the way from tree planting. Total snack.
Oh hey. Have you guys reviewed Trader Joe's Pirates Booty? I'd really to get your slant on it. They've got Veggie Booty and Reg Booty. I keep hearing the "Fruity Booty" in my head, but I don't think that's an actual snack its just two words that rhyme too perfectly to deny. Or I went to a gay strip club last night. Either or.
I know that MATES is a podcast, but is there any plan to do a special video episode of MATES so that we, the viewers (and I know we're not viewers), could be viewers? I would love to see the whole tasting/discussing/rating process with my eyeballs, even just once.
Why, actually, we been chattin’ about that. Will be in touch…
Hey Mike & Tom...
Long time listener, first time tumblr: If you will, two suggestions:
I'd like to see MATES go head to head with Hungry Girl http://www.hungry-girl.com/news
Or you know how in that sleepover episode of Beverly Hills 90210 where Donna admits she like popcorn on her ice cream? Eat that.
Magic dated Donna. That’s all i’m allowed to say about that.
I have been listening to you guys since the beginning and have felt compelled to snack along every week with you. As a result, I have gained 5.73 lbs. I was wondering.. since I've been such a loyal interactive viewer, would you be so kind as to please please pretty please snack on my favorite childhood snack? It's been a while, but I bet it's still good as ever!
Pik-nik original Potatoe shoe strings (dipped in ketchup) and a tropical punch Caprisun. As an additional incentive, it seems Pik-nik is offering $3 when you buy Yogi Bear on Blueray w/ a Pik-nik purchase.
Carissa, loyal fan
(every boy that I sleep with gets a copy of Stella and I saw Yogi Bear in the theater)
I remember you! You’re exactly right, Stella=awesome.
I tried the peanut butter and cheese crackers with hot cocoa, janellied it and everything. It's a solid 4. I didn't have any Pepsi, though, so the jury's still out on that combo. If the opportunity ever arises, I suspect that I'll try it with Pepsi, but other than that I can't see myself ever eating this again.
Yeah, that’s kinda how we felt… Too many other snacks out there.
Hey guys --
Long time reader -- and I know we're not readers.
So, I just went to a restaurant, where I ordered several snacks: some sliders, some oysters (from both New York as well as New Brunswick!), some pie, etc. And, in case there is any debate, the menu I ordered these items from was titled "Snacks".
Anyway, my question is: if all of these items were snacks, is this just a collection of snacks? Or, more importantly, has this bevy of snacks become a "meal"? And, most importantly, once -- or, if -- a bevy of snacks becomes a proper meal, do these items forfeit their previous claims as snacks in order to become a meal, rendering their aforementioned snack titles invalid -- or can several snacks constitute a proper meal?
I am anxiously awaiting your response...at the restaurant with all of these items in front of me. Because I just came here for a snack, so as not to spoil a later meal. So, if you could render your judgment hastily, and tastily.
