[Special Feature] The First Annual Snackies (Snack Cellar Turns 1!)

Snack Cellar is one year old today!

It’s hard to believe, but exactly one year ago, I broke in my shiny new web domain with a review of Edy’s Rolo Ice Cream. In the weeks and months since, I’ve published over 100 reviews in total. But as much as I enjoy eating junk food and writing about it, the real reason this past year has been so great is all of you–the readers. So whether you’re a longtime reader or this is your first time here, thanks for the support.

Now, on to the celebration. I thought we would culminate the first year of Snack Cellar by looking at the best (and worst) of the blog over the last 365 days. These awards of distinction mediocrity have appropriately been dubbed: The Snackies.

🏆 The Snackie for Best Rivalry 🏆

Nominees:

And the Snackie Goes to…

Weight gain certainly gave me a run for my money (trust me), but the best rivalry over the last year has to be me vs. the Keebler Elves. It all started when I ribbed their tweets in my Emoji Brownies review. Ernie and his cronies fired back with blistering silence, so I knew the feud was hot. After throwing a few more barbs at the Keebler Tree, we (I) finally buried the hatchet in my Cinnamon Roll Fudge Stripes review.

🏆 The Snackie for Most Despised Snack 🏆

Nominees:

And the Snackie Goes to…

It’s technically not a “snack,” but I still have nightmares about eating this damn raw pumpkin. I had the bright idea to review an actual pumpkin on National Pumpkin Day, and it almost killed me. Click the link above for the full review, complete with money shots of the nasty pulp and some great quotes of me cursing a vegetable.

🏆 The Snackie for Best Breakfast Food 🏆

Nominees:

And the Snackie Goes to…

Booty O’s Cereal tastes like awful bargain brand Lucky Charms. I gave it a score of 351 out of 10.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

🏆 The Snackie for Best Brand Collaboration 🏆

Nominees:

And the Snackie Goes to…

Last winter, Milka and Oreo–two titans in the snack world–graced the U.S. with one of the tastiest candy bars I’ve ever eaten. Confession: I still have a couple of those gargantuan treats stashed away in my pantry for a rainy day. The Milka Oreo Chocolate Candy Bar is great too, if you’re on a diet.

🏆 The Snackie for Best Snack of the Year 🏆

Nominees:

And the Snackie Goes to…

It’s only fair that the nominees for this category were the two snacks that have been named Best of Class so far, and it’s only right that Talenti Pumpkin Pie Gelato takes the top prize. I heard Lionel Richie’s silky voice when I first set eyes on it, and my love only grew from there. For the first time in my life, I contemplated marrying a pint of ice cream, and I’m already a married man. Sorry, Mrs. Snack Cellar. 😬

Well, that concludes the First Annual Snackies. Thanks again for a great year!
