Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Peanuts Theme Week.
Today's Nut Harvest Milk Chocolate Peanuts were manufactured for Frito-Lay, Inc.* (Plano, TX), a very large company that knows its snacks.**
We're a people on the go, frequently working and having to find and eat food away from home for much of the day. Snacks help us through the day when we have no access to a kitchen. It's no wonder Frito-Lay brings in several billion U.S. dollars in revenue each year.
Today's nuts had genuine peanut flavor with no off-taste and, happily, did not meltdown in fairly hot weather. The milk chocolate that coated each nut was a bit sweet and and may not have been top quality, but this snack served as functional food on the go this morning.
**Frito-Lay, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, is famous for Fritos, Cheetos, and other best-selling snacks.
*According to Dictionary.com, the word "snack" first may have appeared around 1300 A.D., and meant "to bite or snap" (of a dog, or animal with a snout). By 1800, snack had evolved to mean a light bite of food or a small meal (of a human).
