Ok, what I have for you is the loblolly, as passed down from one fat family member to another. Take a tall glass and fill it with your favorite cookie (I strongly recommend oatmeal cookies or, my favorite, Nutter Butters). Break them up, so you can pack'em in. Then fill the glass up with 2% or whole milk (because skim is for French people). Stir it up and start eating. You could also use birthday cake, but that's pretty pro. I'm not sure you guys are ready for that.
Hahaha! “Not sure you guys are ready for that”! Hahahaha!!! Oh, that’s good! That’s rich, Thanks for that one. Nice going, indeed. Whew. good stuff.
When I was a kid and my mom would take me to the movies, she would always buy me the same snack. This was so engrained into my brain that I now buy them solely out of habit every time I go to the movies. I'm curious how a couple pros feel about this obligatory snack in my world. So if you get a chance, I'd love to hear your thoughts on the iconic SNOCAPS! I'd send you some if I wasn't a cheap and lazy bastard. Love, NickG
Look Nick, lets be clear: we’re ALL cheap and lazy bastards here. I am not a fan of the “pebbly” top ‘o the SNOCAP. Doesn’t mean it won’t get its own podcast, tho
I've been an avid listener since the Muffinsode.I stood idly by when you PETERed Crudites. I watched as you reviewed Third Degree Burn Scorchin' Habanero Doritos. I said nothing when you did Meanies. But now I must speak up: who the fuck wants to hear you two blab about Tato Skins?
My in-laws are from PA and I'm often subjected to Butterscotch Krimpets. Not only did the expired snack fail to kill you, but it sounds like it gave you a very accurate impresson of its so-called "fresh" counterpart; spongy, shimmering fish oil pastries. Also, my kids are Yogi Bear fans and I secretly imagine Tom busting out his pissed-off Teddy Graham impersonation whenever they watch it. Has no one suggested Easy Cheese yet? How about ants on a log (celery, PB and raisins)?
No, the krimpet just about did us in. Until we did the guac episode, and THAT just about killed me. Clearly, the snack game is volatile and menacing, and occasionally covered in fish oil. Might very well be time for ants on a log. Or maybe some raisins ‘n PB on celery.
Your episode on the Take 5 bar was really amazing. I have shared it with several co-workers and now everyone is eating them! Remember that with great power... Anyway here it is: you need to do an episode on the Chunky bar.
With great power…what?! WHAT?! With great power comes great…WHAT? WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT???!!!!!
I have a wacko snacko that involves Wonka Bars and Sour Cream and Onion Pringles. ..I know. But the sweet to salty-sour ratio is fairly bitchin'. I'll see MIB at Cobb's. Is it weird to give him each of these things to try?
It’s only weird if you do it in the middle of his act. Actually, go ahead.
keep up the rad work! You guys cheer me up when I'm down. Thanks for that. my friend showed me your podcast in around june 2010, and I've been viewing ever since. I know, I've been listening. pew pew pew. storm troopers hittin' the ground. xx <3
thanks for watching (heh, heh, we all get a kick outta that, don’t we…)
I don't have an interesting question to ask, but I do have a snack suggestion! Please, at some point, review Gummy Tummies from Trader Joe's (unless they aren't a compelling enough snack to make an entire episode out of, that is).
Hi there, I would like to send you some fresh Tastykakes. I feel like you were robbed of what is usually a nice snacking experience. Would that be acceptable or have you put them off for good? I would be sending my favorite, which are peanut butter kandy kakes. They're superior to krimpets anyway. Please let me know. p.s. I did a tomato soup and turkey hoagie janelli earlier and it was such a nice experience. I highly recommend.
In one of the early episodes Tom went out of his way to distinguish you from the "Snack game glitterati." Now you've got your Paste Magazine Top 10 lists, your guest stars on the podcast, and ostensibly your embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions, although they haven't yet been viewed. Where did it all go so wrong for Mike & Tom Eat Snacks?
Oh, it went wrong in the early episodes. About the time we opened our mouths, it went wrong. It was largely inevitable, i think, but thank you for noticing.
This is a statement than an ask. Poor grammar aside, here is my snack suggestion. It was a cold cold winter's day in mid-Missouri and a conception/inception was done with the limited resources found. Thus "Droppings in the Snow" was made (1 Wheat Thin+some vanilla icing+Nestle semi-sweet morsels). One variation of the classic snack is "Droppings in the Mud", which merely requires a change from vanilla icing to chocolate icing, maintain Wheat Thins. If you want gourmet, go to the snow/mud
OK. But that seemed a bit like an ask, not just a statement.
Quick question: who the hell is making these Tato Skins? I hadn't heard of them, so I googled them. The only result I got was one type made by Keebler's filthy fucking elven goldbricks, but those apparently haven't been produced since the early to mid-nineties.
A Matey sent those in, i believe. We just blindly eat everything sent to us, because that’s smart.
Shrimp Chips. They're delicious and at any grocery store. Please do these soon. Also, I always thought Mike was the attractive one but now that I've seen your website banner I must say Tom looks a lot better. LOOK AT THOSE GUNS!
In the Combos episode, whilst discussing the merits of a 47yr old Kevin Bacon reprising the role of Ren McCormack in Footloose, Tom Cavanagh is so fucking dismissive of Dianne Weist's performance I ripped out my earbuds in disgust. Now my ears hurt as well as my heart. Cavanagh, you son of a bitch. Dianne Weist is a national fucking treasure and you sir, are an asshole. Still love the podcast, Magic you're cute.
Ah, there we are again, tearing our souls apart over Dianne Weist. How does she do it. For the record, i love the woman, and your ability to classify someone who offers a perceived differing opinion a son of a bitch, a sir, and an asshole.
Hey, you toberlones, I joined tumblr just so I could ask you to do a show on sour candy and if you could pair it off with beer you'd really make my life. Since I didn't pose that as a question, lemme axe you, If you could get one guest co-host for to replace your titular co-host (just for one show) who would it be?
Hey you toblerones=funny, even though you spelled it wrong.
Hi Mike and Tom - long time viewer (via telephone), first time caller. Big fan of the podcast! Let me get right to it -- snack request: Twizzlers. I am partial to Pull 'n Peel but really, any member of the Twizzlers family is acceptable snackin' for me. Twizzlers is my go-to snack at the movies and let me tell you why: it's fun, it's a "fat free food," therefore it won't make you fat, and it's an American classic. It's made by Hershey's! Come on! Consider it? Anyway, keep up the good work! xxx
Don’t you think your time would be better off spent setting up defense arguments against the Donut Shoppe lawyers?
My best friend Jessica and I got matching cactus flower tattoos this weekend. The other weird thing we do together is listen to MATES. In the car, sitting on one of our couches, when we're drunk and falling asleep. It's our favorite thing to do together, mostly because it allows us to enjoy ourselves while not having to speak to each other. So, Mike, do you have any of those 30+ comps to spare for your 6th and I show in D.C. for us? It would make us so very happy, and you won't regret it.
Magic and i also got matching cactus flower tattoos this weekend, how weird is THAT, and we have one question for you:
Every few episodes I convince myself that the whole "Tom Cavanagh" thing is meant ironically -- the voice and humor is CLEARLY Michael Showalter, which makes a lot more sense than Cavanagh doing this nonsense. Then I convince myself that there is no joke, it really is him. Nowadays I realize that they both must be involved to varying degrees (Showalter shows up when Cavanagh can't make it, right?). So my question is, what's the split? 70/30%?
You’re cut off. Seriously. Don’t even tune in any more.
Just listened to the pop chips episode. Why did you all decide to not rate the salt and pepper chips? You don't think your listeners would like to know exactly how good they are? Not trying to be a dick, but I feel like you jewed me out of a rating.
Mike, Tom, please do rice cakes sometime soon! The miniature ranch-flavored ones are my favorite, just saying. I've met Michael Showalter, David Wain, and Ken Marino. You would absolutely complete my life if you would call me and say hello. 6618896550. Especially if you choose my snack, because they're delicious and my father hates them and I'd like your rating as proof one way or the other.
I’ve never heard of any of those people. Also, we called your number, and it wouldn’t connect. Do you have to put a “1” on the front or something weird like that?
Does "Janellied" refer to only a combination of liquid and solid? I "Janelled" a chuck of cheese and some crackers the other day because I was too lazy to get a knife. Then today I "Janellied" a Slim Jim and Doritos. Is this "Janelling" or am I just stuffing food in my mouth in a pig like manner? Tell me please kind sirs, can you "Jamellie" two solids or is it called something else? What about "Jamelling" two liquids. Aloha and Maha
Aloha. also, you’re Just stuffing food in mouth in pig like manner.
Janelli=food plus liquid (not water). thank you and good luck
