The tribe has spoken. 52% of you voted in Monday’s poll to select which snack food I was to enjoy next. Cheez-Its and Sabritones put up a good fight … well, not really, 52% is pretty damn good.

Today is a beautiful day. The sun shines, the breeze whistles, I eat a delicious chicken, rice and cabbage lunch. To celebrate I waltz (actually, drive) over the gas station to sample the snack my readers have chosen for me. I feel a sense of validation rush over me as I head toward the chip aisle. I am 100% certain that at least 52% (hey, did I mention … OK the joke is dead) of you guys out there want to read about my eating experience.
However, an entirely different feeling rushes over me when I bend over to the very bottom of the shelf to survey the Combo area.
Serendipity! Praise ye gods for bestowing the last of the Pizzeria Pretzel Combos upon me. Owing to thine good humor, I feast on the fruits of Mars, Inc.’s bounty. Come, away with you, final bag of victuals. I prithee, stow thyself in mine mouth for I shall sup on thee as a nobleman sups on a tart.
As I settle down with my bag of Combos, I have a little trouble opening them. But it’s nothing a handy pair of hand scissors can’t fix.
An incredible whiff of pizza snack bursts forth from the bag. I definitely remember this from Pizza Pringles or Pizzerolas. I reach in, grab a pretzel-looking item and take a bite. It really does taste like pizza! And it’s way better than I expected! And you definitely, definitely need plenty of water as you eat these guys.
Also, please note the nutrition info below. It’s ridic! I wouldn’t recommend these for a road trip because I eat mindlessly when I’m bored and I would probably consume most of my daily calories from these Combos.
