my 88 ingredient snack

November 13, 2013

Woke up at 4:50 AM to catch a plane to Chicago. 
Grabbed coffee. 
No time to eat. 
At airport. 
No time to eat, took too long to go through security since I got the pat down (my choice).
Hungry on plane. Bought a snack pack.

I am sure you have seen these and may have even bought one yourself. They come with a variety of different foods each in their own packaging. Just for fun (yes, I think this is fun) I counted the number if ingredients in each pack and added them up.

Tapas box # of ingredients
  • Pita chips-10
  • Almonds-1
  • Olives-9
  • Hummus-6
  • Cheese spread-9
  • Roasted tomato spread-25
  • Olive oil crackers-7
  • Cream crackers-7
  • Chocolate covered fruit juice-14

I don't fly a lot, therefore I am not eating things like that often. Which is good and I am sure it all balances out. But even in this situation I could have made a better choice. I didn't count the ingredients in #1's box, but his did not have the same number if items that mine had. Just from looking on the list in his I know he made the better choice.

  • Tortilla chips
  • Salsa
  • Fig bar
  • Almond
  • Nutella
  • Graham crackers
  • Dried fruit

Come to think of it, he suggested I get the tapas box. What a real food sabatuer.

Conclusion- I need to be better organized when flying to bring my own snacks.
