I'm an Addict...

Pin It Really.

Do you remember when I made this little list?

Of those most favorite things I had in life, Sundried Tomato and Basil Wheat Thins had clearly made the list—most especially because they are…how do I say it?

Amazing?

A party in your mouth?

Akin to heaven and all that is good in the world?

Regardless, it was about two months ago that this particular variety of Wheat Thins was on sale, and at an unbelievably cheap price at that.

I was shaking my head in disbelief as I found myself walking out of the local grocery store with twelve boxes of them packed away into shopping bags. I was thinking at the time just how crazy I was; after all, there would be no heavenly way I could eat all them before their expiration date in April.

Fast-forward to this afternoon.

The pantry had been emptied, the last box having surrendered its last dregs of wonderful, basily goodness. Not a single one of these little, golden delights was in sight. I purchased three more boxes at a not-so-good sale price. I can only ask myself why I didn’t purchase an additional ten boxes two months ago…

Then I remember the fourteen boxes of cereal I threw out over the weekend—some of it having expired back in 2008.

Yeah, I’m kind of like that.

If I keep this up I just might have to start attending Wheat Thins Anonymous.

Whew! It is just the Wheat Thins...I thought it was going to be about more PB & chocolate goodness which would give me a craving and I would have to start digging in my cupboard. If you start sprouting basil out of your ears, then we'll start to worry. :)

I'll have to try those next time I'm shopping!

A party in your mouth, eh?!

There are worse things one could be addicted to, like gigantic peanut butter filled eggs.

Oh, wait...

I haven't bought them again after my first box you tricked me into trying. I just can't. They are too good. I can't handle the pressure of having to share them or to keep from eating them all in a very short period of time.

N - I still have THAT addiction, too. The only thing which curbs it is the price tag…

A - They are, indeed. Just be warned, you might not be able to stop.

G - Amen, my sister from another mister. Those are quite wicked.

L - I hate to admit this, but I ate half of a box tonight on my way home in the car. I can't stop either unless I put them in a bag or bowl.

The goodness wants to be inside of me.

I had those before, didn't like them.......

I think The SM and you hit the same sale. Boxes of those things came into the house among other flavors and.......they are all gone now! That's the problem with food storage. The sales in the stores never keep up with my rotation. I'm out! Time to have another huge sale!!!! They never listen......

On the other hand.....Easter is coming....which means a certain PB extacy will be going on sale......so maybe it's all good. They say variety is the spice of life.

Are you my husband's long lost brother? He buys things in 10's and 12's too...it just so happens that he bought a dozen boxes of various flavor Wheat Thins and Triscuits just about 3 months ago as well....just before I could no longer crunch a cracker. However, in the spirit of not wasting such scrumptious snacks, I threw them in the food processor and made crumbs for all molded ground beef creations - they give burgers, loaf and meatballs quite a zing. Snack on Mr. Z...you are not alone.

Sundried Tomato and Basil really are a party in your mouth. I think they are even party-ier (I just made that word up) with cream cheese. Have you tried Ranch Wheat Thins? Not to start another habit, but yum!
