[DISCUSSION] "The perfect snack"?

Just now I got a bit peckish and went to get a snack to eat at my desk (hi Ad!). I ended up buying some chocolate raisins. The pack reads:

Plump juicy raisins covered in a sumptuous layer of rich milk chocolate... the perfect snack!

At first I trusted the wisdom of the package, but then I saw it also says contains 4 portions and does it strawberry float! Fake news! Very bad. So how can I believe anything else it tells me?

Chocolate raisins are a good snack for sure, but are they really the perfect snack? Please help me.

Dried fruit - mango, cranberry, cherry.

Fruit is nature's snack platter.

This seems like it could be a logistical nightmare if you're eating this at your desk.

The dried mango and pineapple in Graze boxes is AMAZING but annoyingly you can't buy it separately.

These, they are unbelievably nice and incredibly healthy (or not).

My favoured snack of choice is either this:

or Sainsbury's Organic nuts. Minimal amounts of sugar, you see.

I did the Graze discounted trial a few years ago and I was like 'is that it?!' The supermarket ones are just as bad, though I do like their lemon flapjacks.

Oh they're a complete rip off - even from their ownline with discount codes.

I pinched their "deconstructed cherry tart" mix thing though. Make it yourself for 1/5th the cost.

Don't think it's healthy, but it's always gone well when taken to a get together.

An orange Club. Or, a fruit Club. Add in a cup of tea and you're both refreshed and energised :datass: .

Any food is a perfect snack if you like it and it's in a small portion.

Moggy's Snack Sunday Roast then?

Actually oh god now I want one.

And it's the Scampi Crisps you sometimes get in pubs or smaller news agents.

Or Nik Naks. Rib Flavour.

Scampi Fries are awesome, Bacon Fries are decent too. You used to get multipacks in Poundland, not sure if you still can.

You should: they're for mugs and/or women.

I've always liked Frisps, even though they're not real crisps. Rarely see them now though.

Or those marshmallows with jam in the centre that come in a yellow pack. Never seem them now either. Maybe I just frequent the wrong shops. Probably in Iceland or something.
