    Snack-attack: when hunger is the best sauce! 11th Oct 17 at 12:19 AM
    Scenario: you come home late after a day at work. You need to eat NOW (no food has been consumed. although you might have had a drink or two ) There are no leftovers in the fridge and you didnít think to defrost anything in advance. Youíre too hungry to wait until youíve had a chance to cook something.

    So under these circumstances, what's your snack of choice?

    Cut off a chunk of cheddar in the fridge (that's not leftovers, that's food).
    Open a can of 20p creamed rice.
    Find a pack of 20p instant noodles in the cupboard.
    See if there's any frozen bread in the freezer for a bit of toast.

    If all the above fail ...open a can of peas and eat them cold from the can with a teaspoon.

    As a rule, though, there's always something in the freezer that can be instantly nuked.

    Twiglets dipped in houmous. It sounds disgusting but they actually work really well together.

    I may have discovered this after a night out when they were pretty much the only food in the house...

    Cheese, i eat to much cheese but if it's there i'll cut off a chunk.
    A handful of Bran Flakes, rather have the cheese but the Bran is probably healthier.

    Haven't been in this situation for years, but when it used to happen to me my go-to snack was always a Crisp sandwich - cheese and onion being my preferred option.

    If I didn't have any crisps in the house, then a peanut butter and marmite sandwich -- blimey I really want one now ... but no longer buy peanut butter cos of its HUGE calorie content
    I try not to get too stressed out on the forum. I won't argue, i'll just leave a thread if you don't like what I say.

    A single malt.

    No, make that a double single malt.


    Or maybe even a triple single malt?

    Cheese sarnie, or if there's no cheese I'd slice up a big pile of cocktail sausages and have them instead. With brown sauce.
    Some people only exist as examples of what to avoid...

    I don't like Peanut butter, but i've got a jar in the fridge. I had a mouse in the kitchen, under the sink. I didn't want to harm it so long as it never did any harm. I thought it's probably only come in 'cos it was Winter and cold outside. So decided to let it stay until the Spring. But everyone kept telling me, it would go and tell all it's friends they could stay. So in the end i bought a trap, and baited it with cheese. It mustn't have like cheese but i read on the Internet they like peanut butter............
    The mouse is no more.

    I still occasionally get the urge for a crisp sandwich although in my case pickled onion monster munch would be my filling of choice.
