The Secret to Keeping Your Spouse Smiling While Shopping + a SNICKERS® Pudding Parfait





My husband makes a pretty awesome shopping partner. He especially excels at helping me find deals, so I obviously love to have him tag along when I go shopping for pretty much anything.

While he's the master of deals, he tends to turn into a monster about halfway through our shopping trip, no matter how long we've been shopping or where we are... He doesn't get angry because I'm spending too much money or time in one store (most of the time anyways), he gets frustrated because he gets hungry. Not just your average version of hungry, either. My normal, deal-loving hubby gets hungry and he kind of starts to throw a little "hangry" fit unless he gets food fast.

He honestly can eat like no one else I know. He's a constant snack-er, been referred to as a human garbage disposal, and will literally finish his own meal and move onto mine almost every time we go out to dinner. He could eat all day, every day, so having SNICKERS® with us on a shopping trip is the only way I can keep him focused while we are out hunting for deals!

He's been this way forever; one of my favorite stories my mother-in-law has shared with me from his childhood actually involves his excessive hunger and really captures who he is as a whole when he gets hungry. My husband, as a toddler, in the wee hours of the morning snuck out of his bed and into my mother-in-law's room and woke her up by peeling her eyes open with his little fingers and exclaiming "Are you ever going to feed me again?!"

So even if I feed my man before we head out to go shopping, there's no doubt in my mind that he'll be whining about being hungry and possibly get "hangry" if I don't feed him quick enough...That's why we always make a pit stop at the Circle K right by our house and grab a couple of SNICKERS®!

I can shop without a worry in the world once I've handed him his favorite candy bar. SNICKERS® makes everything better! Luckily, Circle K has every single one of his favorites: SNICKERS® Almond, SNICKERS® Peanut Butter, and SNICKERS® Extreme.

Need another reason to grab a SNICKERS® while out on the go?

While I'm not hungry as often as my hubby, I love that the packages we buy for hubby typically have two candy bars! Although he can (and sometimes does) eat both candy bars, I love using the second one to make myself a special treat!

I make a delicious SNICKERS® Parfait within seconds using chopped apples, tapioca pudding, some whipped cream, and of course, a SNICKERS®. I use a SNICKERS® extreme and chop it up into itty, bitty pieces so I get a little bit of that rich, caramel-y goodness in each bite! It's a wonderful way to reward myself when I'm hungry after a long day of shopping and hits the spot, every single time!
