I've been a big fan of snacking for as long as I can remember. If I could abandon meals altogether and just graze all day long I probably would. Obviously, this can also be a very bad habit that I have to reign in to keep from ending up huge. But I know I have to indulge my inner snacker from time to time, so I like to keep snacks on hand at work to accommodate those times when I ... just ... have.... to ... snack.
Even more important lately, I've needed to have vegan snacks on hand so I can avoid these temptations that keep showing up at work:
So I brought in my own reinforcements to help curb any crazy cravings that would send me to the candy dish ... or worse.
Thanks to the handy PETA accidentally vegan list, I also found out that Keebler jumbo fudge sticks are vegan! This was incredibly exciting because I've always loved the regular fudge stick cookies, so I thought the jumbo ones would be a great junk food to turn to (though I'm irritated that the regular ones aren't vegan ... such a small ingredient difference).
Unfortunately, it turns out the jumbo fudge sticks are not just large cookies, but they're more like candy bars! They come with only six to a box, each individually wrapped. They're a bit lighter than a candy bar because of the light wafer filling, but it's still pretty intense ... and you certainly won't need two! Check this thing out!
I do have quite small hands, but still ... It's obvious this isn't really a "cookie" at all. But it's still tasty, and nice to have on hand for a true junk food emergency. I just wish they were more like half the size. Or better yet, that the regular cookies were vegan! Here that, elves?
