[FHCx257] National Snack a Pickle Day/National Peanut Day/International Chocolate Day

IT’S NATIONAL SNACK A PICKLE DAY, NATIONAL PEANUT DAY, AND INTERNATIONAL CHOCOLATE DAY!

It’s hard to talk about all 3 of these things at once, but we’ll try.

We’ve enjoyed having peanuts in chocolate before. It’s a great combination that has worked for candies since ages past. They’re a power couple. So when it came time for Peanut Day and Chocolate Day at the same time, at once we thought of having the two together. Like-a-dis:

And now some of our Halloween candy shopping is already ready!

Hey it’s AK and SP on the back!

We are a family of M&M lovers. Mostly the peanut, peanut butter, and crispy varieties. And even moreso than a Snickers, this candy embodies chocolate and peanut together in one. They’re delicious.

What is also delicious, and hasn’t been mentioned nearly enough on spakwillsnack, is pickles. As Jews and people of Eastern European heritage, there is something about pickles that calls to us. And in the SPamily, pickles are a yearly tradition that’s older than SPom. Every year, in August, we get together with the SPom side of the family and jar pickles. It’s a proud tradition and we love our own brand quite a bit. So pretty much everyone always has a jar from some year or another in their fridge in case it’s time to snack a pickle.

It’s not total heresy to have a Claussen now and then, though.

Ok, so you got here and you’re looking at us like we’re crazy. AK‘s aunt Beverly, Auntie B, would take a pickle half, scoop out the interior, and fill it with M&Ms. This is in honor of her. AK didn’t immediately throw up, so we guess that it’s alright?

Tomorrow is National Eat A Hoagie Day and National Cream-Filled Donut Day.
