    And why?

    I've got the munchies but i'm so indecisive I can't decide what to have.
    I'm also going through an 'i'm bored of all my regular food' phase so i'd like some ideas for some healthy(ish) and cheap snacks!

    Cheers all

    Trail mix is good! You could make it yourself... dried fruit (raisins, chopped apricots, prunes, dates, mango, apple, banana chips, papaya, pineapple, etc), nuts (brazils, almonds, cashews, peanuts, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, coconut, etc) with some cheeky cereals (Cheerios, Shreddies) and chocolate (M&Ms, Smarties) thrown in for good luck.

    Crudites with dips (hummus, guac, salsa)? Cheese (Babybel is good) with some fruit? Ryvitas or oatcakes with toppings (cottage cheese, peanut butter, cream cheese)? Homemade smoothies? A cup of home made veg soup? Natural yogurt with add ins (jam, fruit, dried fruit, nuts, cocoa powder, cereal)?

    Idk. The possibilities are endless.

    Every other week I just buy a shed load of chocolate bars, I don't know why. I just instantly crave sugar and chocolate from time to time. :coma:

    Rice cakes with philadelphia light in the different flavours. (Sundried tomato and basil is gorgeous).

    Toast and margerine.

    Cucumber and carrot sticks. Especially with philly light for dipping.

    And when being naughty: toffee popcorn, mini breadsticks dipped in nutella, oreos or chocolate!

    Peanut butter on banana
    peanut butter and jam on rice cakes/bread
    peanut butter mixed with toffee syrup on bread
    peanut butter on it's own off the spoon like some sort of feral creature..
    I bloody love peanut butter, definitely not the healthiest option though

    I like yoghurt-coated raisins or banana chips, but they are quite fattening. Probably best as a rare treat, methinks. :cool:

    Freakin' love crisps. Give me crisps. Any crisps. My favourites are Kettle Chips, Doritos, Walkers, Skips, Wotsits, Chipsticks, Walkers Max, Walkers Sensations...Basically anything made of potato (or not), fried (or baked), with salt.

    As a healthy snack, making your own popcorn ranks pretty highly. It's so much cheaper than buying microwave packs, and you can choose what flavours to add. Apparently you can make it in the microwave with a paper sandwich bag, but I do mine on the hob:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Heat a tablespoon or so of oil in a saucepan that has a lid.
    Before it gets so hot that it starts spitting, pour in about 100g or so of popcorn kernels and put the lid on.
    Shake it about a bit to make sure all the kernels are coated in a little bit of oil.
    Leave it on the heat, shaking every now and then to move the popped kernels up to the top of the pan, and letting the unpopped kernels fall to the bottom.
    Then just dump it all in a big bowl and flavour it - I like salt, but apparently it's quite nice with cinnamon...
    It takes a few tries to perfect what heat to put it on, and you'll usually end up with a fair few unpopped kernels and some burnt popped ones...but a bag of like 500g is about 80p, compared to at least £2 for 3 Butterkist microwave bags.

    I love salted mixed nuts!
    There's this new flavor of crisps out here; yogurt and herb, SUCH an addiction! I also like barbecue rice crackers.
    OH, also samosas.
    Basically crunchy or spicy. Not a HUGE fan of things that are sweet.

    When I feel healthy, I just grab a fruit or like three plain crackers/vegetables and dip them in salsa.
