Okay folks. We at FR are some of the most intelligent people on the internet. I'm here seeking help for my addiction. I thought I had it under control until I bought my last bag of Snyder's of Hanover Jalapeno Pretzel Pieces. The bag was demolished and my thought is to run back to the grocery store and buy more. I can't go five minutes without thinking about them. I dream about them. I taste them in everything I eat. Life is becoming unbearable without them. What should I do? Is there a Federal program to help? Isn't this the same as cocaine addiction, meth addiction, being a Commurat, or a Barney Frank supporter? I need help!!!

There is a rehab clinic in Mississippi I think. Spend two weeks and a bunch of money and you will be found cured. Then you can get all your endorsements back.

Utz’s Party Mix should help. Let us know how THAT turns out. ;)

My Snyder’s addiction involves their steak and onion flavor potato chips. I have just abandoned myself to it. I expect to be found at the bottom of a pile of empty steak and onion potato chip bags some day with a smile on my face.

It isn't the same as being a Barney Frank supporter. Except for the part about your life being consumed by an overwhelming desire to put hard things into your mouth.

I have read that if you experience a craving for a specific food item, such as describe here, that there is a good chance that you are allergic to it, and should avoid it.

Another thing that I read in a book about the food industry which MIGHT have been entitled FOOD GIANTS is that many agrobusiness companies intentionally put addictive substances into their processed food items to intentionally create addiction among unsuspecting members of the public.

I have no idea if this is true.

Another thing your posting reminds me of is having read many times through the years that if your are able to totally avoid a specific food for three full weeks, with NO cheating, that you will lose your yen for it.

You could always move to Rhode Island and run for the 1st District’s Congressional Seat. I hear there’s an opening for an addict there.

It’s got a lot of monosodium glutamate in it. MSG creates addictions, which is why it is used so much in food.

You’re going to have to go cold turkey. See if Wasabi peas or hot okra pickles will scratch your itch.

Didn’t work for me. I completely avoided chocolate for several months, but one bite was all it took (it was in something that I didn’t expect to find chocolate).

As for what you can do about it, buy a bunch of small zip-lock type bags. When you open the bag of Snyder’s, portion an amount into each bag (50 to 100 calorie’s worth). Then try to set some time limit that you have to spend between bags. Say 1 to 3 hours. Then you’re never more than 3 hours from your next fix, but you also won’t blow up your waistline.

You could switch to Wege broken sourdough hard pretzels. That would break your Snyder's habit. But it would be like going from crack to smack.

You might also consider using them as a condiment in a larger dish. For instance, you could make a big, green leafy salad with some lean protein and low fat dressing, and top it with a handful of Snyder’s Jalapeno Bites. Or you could mix them with some freeze dried fruit, such as apples or pears.

I confess that I too demolished a whole bag of their buffalo wing flavored bits, and was amazed at how addictive they were.

I will never, ever, put a bite of anything Snyder’s in my mouth again, because I do believe they added something that creates the craving.

I feel for ya; I really do.

chocolate....

has magnesium in it. You simply have a magnesium need to satisfy. Dark chocolate helps reduce bacteria in the mouth. So does celery, but the dark chocolate take is much more fun.

Oooh! I like the way you think! Chocolate, IMHO, should be classified as a vegetable; after all, it comes from a bean.

I like the Lindt kind. High cacao content, low sugar. Just need a square to do the trick.

Got a whole box of them sitting right here on the table in front of me. Trying my best to keep my hands off. After all, I just finished a whole darn bag of the pieces. Not sure you all are helping that much. :)

Switch to Snyder’s ‘Snaps’, then gradually reduce the number of hands full per day during freeping. If you need a quick fix, try putting seven or eight Snaps in a bowl and smother with ‘Border’ White cheese dip and microwave on high for ten seconds in a 1000 watt oven. You can sprinkle a few Jalapeno bits on top if you need the twang ramped up. ... And have Iced Tea with that, rather than a Corona with lime. Reducing the pleasure is the key don’tchaknow.

Not kidding, husband of a co-worker rushed to ER for MI just an hour ago.

It might be better for you to eat straight Jalapenos instead of the carbs.

I deny shilling for the Utz company, although in the interest of disclosure I freely admit to once dating a girl from McSherrystown.

I remember that our local, family-owned store in southern Adams county, PA, used to carry the big metal cans of Gibble's. Those may suffice if Grandma Utz isn't available. :D
