RE: Your list of nasty snack food
Boiled peanuts. I love peanuts, but boiled nuts are like tasteless mush. They are nasty and I don't understand how anyone can eat them.
Boiled eggs. They smell like farts and are not that much better. I do like eggs a lot, but like peanuts above, it's all about preperation.
Peppermint/chocolate candy (like Peppermint Patty's). Love peppermint candy. Love chocolate. Together it's not palatable to me.
Any candy with coconut in it. Coconut tastes like fruity wood shavings.
