And if ice cream is allowed,
Chipwich - brand be damned, but Trader Joe's makes a mean one, Klondike is the OG, but it don't matter, babies.

Since dips are in, if guac doesn't win this whole thing I'll be shocked.

Fair enough, although since there's only like eight flavors of Kringle, I didn't think I needed to specify.

Raspberry Kringle.

Well the definition of snack is still pretty wide open.

Back in the day when I was sporting a goatee, after a moustache ride I'd have a snack on my flavor saver. Wildcard!

Dips are not a snack. They are a condiment. You add them to your snack of choice to enhance them. You don't eat them on their own.

I agree and also would say anything dessert like shouldn't be on there like kringle, ice cream, or baklava.

Dips are a snack. I'm not eating guac because I love tortilla chips or hummus because I love carrots.

But are you eating them on their own?

No?

Then they're not a snack. They're a form of condiment. You're eating them to enhance the taste of your tortilla chips or your carrots.

If you want to rephrase as "chips and guac," then perhaps that could be a reasonable compromise. But then YMMV on what kinds of chips? What's in your guac?

That doesn't even begin to delve into the variety of kinds of dips that could fall under that category.

I hear you. I'm coming from the angle of me being hungry and walking into the kitchen. I see a jar of salsa or that store bought guac, I grab some tortilla chips, and I head to the couch to snack. The chip and the dip are intertwined - I would never eat the tortilla chip by itself nor the dip by itself.

Homemade guacamole? Shouldn't count. Buffalo chicken dip? That's an appetizer, shouldn't count. Hummus and pita chips? Absolutely a snack. Pretzels and cheese spread? Snack. Chips and french onion dip? Snack. Cheese and crackers? Snack.

I think snacks can require some light assembly of no more than 2 ingredients (placing cheese on a cracker, spreading peanut butter on a piece of celery, dipping a chip into dip). If you're actually cooking something (heating, mixing, chopping, etc.) then you've left snack territory and are into appetizers.

If a snack includes 2 components then maybe we can specify one of them and assume the most generic version of the other.

Speaking of salsa/pico and guac, I never understood why people don't make it their selves. It so easy and about 100x better tasting.

Honestly I've had so many people have "special" recipes that don't hold a candle to the basic Frank's recipe. I'll fight anyone about it too.
