    I seem to eat the same nighttime snack for a few weeks, then finally tire of it and change to something different. This week I have been having a piece of dark wheat bread spread with honey peanut butter with a cup of coffee.

    What kind of snacks do you like?

    I always have a fudgesicle after dinner. I used to have ice cream, but struggled with portion control. Then I have a couple of cookies.

    Snacks I have the most often are pistachios and M&M almonds.

    Does anyone else do that "sweet, salty" thing? Asking for a friend.

    A cup of coffee with a nighttime snack doesn't keep you awake?

    I don’t always snack before bedtime, but when I do, it just depends on what I am hungry for. I think that my favorite is a fresh apple, sliced, with some cheese.
    Sometimes, I have the dry-roasted peanuts with sea salt, and occasionally I have tortilla chips.
    When i want something sweet, I h ave a cup of coffee or tea, and a whole wheat fig bar, or part of a protein bar. We get the fig bars by the box from Sam’s Club, and the protein bars from Amazon, and I always keep some set out for when Bobby or I want a snack, or a light breakfast.

    Agree. I'll snack on anything. Whatever is available and easy.

    I have to admit that I can't buy the big bag of Cheetos anymore. Those are my nemesis.

    The sweet/salty thing is very dangerous. Handful of peanuts, then a handful of chocolate morsels? Been there. Can't quit.

    That's why Peanut M&M's are not allowed in the house.

    Never liked dip with chips before---cheese, salsa, nope. When this lock down thing started I tried a can of jalapeno bean dip with chips, just for the heck of it. It was easy. Now I'm hooked on it. :rolleyes:
