OT: Bucks Board Quarantine Snack Bracket Discussion 

Post#1 » by ReasonablySober » Wed May 27, 2020 6:38 pm

Let's do this.

Talk rules and nominations here.

My first rule for discussion: no dips. If your snack is great AND requires a dip, only the snack is represented.

I'm nominating the obvious: Dots Homestyle Pretzels.

Hard to separate snacks and dips
I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

And this is why discussion is needed in this important matter. This bracket is FLEXIBLE. I'm not saying celery is a top snack. But you add some peanut butter and raisins? Got yourself a nice little snack.

Okay. Who else is in favor of dips and/or condiments in their snack nomination?

Cool Ranch Doritos. I know it's a boring pick but it's just a damn good chip.

Popcorn cooked on a stovetop with real butter.

Funyuns are underrated. Dots are great but I've just had them for the first time. I may get sick of them in the long haul. I've never got sick of Cool Ranch Doritos. Flaming hot are good but a notch below. Classic Lays with French onion dip a solid choice. A good tortilla chip with well made guac.

What are we qualifying as snacks (dip discussion aside)? Like, are we really meaning chips? Are sweets included? Because **** Oreos, man. Crown them champion now.

Dips cannot be included in this discussion, too many variables and homemade ones that can change things.

It's Funyons, Flamin' Hots, Goldfish, Cheeze-Its for me. Maybe throw in some cheese Ritz Bitz from time to time and some Spicy Nacho Doritos and I'm good and fat.

What qualifies as a snack, snack/dip debate aside? Like some people consider chicken wings a snack, others a meal. Is this brands only, like a big FritoLay vs Hostess discussion?

I would like to bring to the floor the notion of creating a “salty” and a “sweet” bracket that narrows down to one true king.

Not saying this is my pick, but if one of the Aussies doesn’t nominate Tim Tams I’ll question their national pride.

Do cannabis brownies count as a snack?

I had Ritz Crackers for the first time in forever a while ago. I had fond memories of them.

Then I ate one.

Holy crap, do they not hold up. Awful taste. Awful texture.

Give me Town House or hell even Saltines over those any day.
