God Bless Pink Snacks ! September 11, 2007

Posted by Rambling Man in Ireland & the Irish, Poetry & Humor.

This snack business is not something to which I am akin.  I feel I am missing out on something by not over indulging in the country’s favourite tea break treat.

Adds have been developed purely for these tiny bars of chocolate in funny coloured paper and different sizes.  Snacks are a phenomenon !  They are a bar room and teacher’s lounge staple across the land and the boys in Killinaskully wouldn’t be seen ordering anything else … There’s even a lad here in the office who always declares “It’s time for tay – and a pink sschnack !”

And so it was with great glee that I photographed the following menu board at a restaurant in Tipperary this past week … they didn’t have much – but they did have 3 types of Snack !!

pink snacks are rotten. the yellow one’s are very dull and too small to eat in any interesting way.

Purple one’s fucking rule and shit all over club milks.
