If we had known how 2017 was going to turn out, there would have only been one article this year—Our Emotions: The Snacktaku Review. It would have saved us a whole lot of typing, video editing and Tums. But snacking isn’t about why we eat—it’s about what we eat. Here’s what we ate in 2017.
This is Yuka Kinoshita. And today, we are going watch her eat so much fucking food.
In its latest attempt to replace all foods with processed potato product, Pringles takes on Thanksgiving dinner with eight different flavors—turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, macaroni and cheese and creamed corn. We’d say grace first, but no.
Nour is an art game about the beauty of food and playing with what you eat. With a few slaps of the keyboard, a ramen bowl gets packed with noodles while boba balls leap into tea cups. It’s silly but gorgeous. It’s this week’s Indie Pick.
It’s 5:30, and I realize in half an hour I’ll be slammed with customers.

If you’ve ever wanted to cook like Link in Breath Of The Wild, the chef at Binging With Babish has you covered with these recipes. Just hold your nose before cutting the durian fruit.
Rick and Morty is back and, thanks to the teaser premiere that aired back in April, so is an insane amount of enthusiasm for “Szechuan Sauce,” a limited edition nugget sauce that was released to help promote the 1998 Disney film Mulan.
What happens when the world’s favorite brand of stack-able potato crisps meets Nissin’s popular line of Japanese-style survival rations? Lots of people tilt their heads and go “huh,” for starters. Also, I make a Snacktaku video.
It’s been over a month since the last time we posted a deal on Haribo Gold Bears, so you’ve finished your last bag and you’re ready for a resupply, Amazon’s marked it back down to $10 with Subscribe & Save, or $11 with standard shipping.
