In CHUBBY BOUNTY HUNTER 033, it’s the launch of a new segment called “Chubby Wolf & Cub” whereby Eton Zootine joins me for food adventures. In this episode, it’s Eton’s choice, one of his personal favourite snack items, Hostess Hickory Sticks. For me it’s a nostalgic trip aboard this crunchy treat, with smoky hickory flavour and tangy seasoning upon potato chips in matchstick form. Now produced by Lay’s Canada, it’s the only snack left with the old Hostess name on the bag; a certain throwback to the heyday when “nothing else will do”. Luckily, Eton leads a new generation into the snacking fray with these addictive little morsels.
In CHUBBY BOUNTY HUNTER 030, it’s another snack-sized installment as I gobble up a Big Turk candy bar. The chocolate-covered Turkish delight is a classic Canadian treat from the fine folks at Nestle. It is a polarizing food with most people I know deriding the Big Turk as one of those sweets that NOBODY likes. But here I am and the chocolate and gelatin combo is my favourite of all the bars as well as being my ticket to the afterlife.
In CHUBBY BOUNTY HUNTER 019, I go for another snack break. This is a 2-parter with part one devoted to Buffalo Blue Cheese Combos. The baked pretzel snack is a nice mix of spice and velvet with hard-tack crunch. I love these things and they are much more substantial than chips as a snack, i.e., they don’t feel as much like empty calories.
