Handling Hunger with SNICKERS® BarsSeptember 28, 2015
Sometimes life can be very busy! Between the number of hours I work on this blog (more than 8 on some days), taking care of my kids (including shuttling them to and from school, lessons, activities, etc.), renovating the new house and other everyday errands, there is sometimes very little time left to focus on anything else, such as having snacks available when I need them most! And sometimes when I need them most, I can get really hungry and that can change my personality a bit: maybe make me a bit more cranky, grouchy, impatient, etc. Did you ever notice your personality can change a bit when you’re really hungry?! Yep, join the club! That’s why I’m absolutely loving the new SNICKERS® bars that force you to answer the question: “Who are you when you’re hungry?” (Keep reading for a fun little quiz to determine your personality when you’re super-hungry!) #EatASNICKERS #CollectiveBias
Handling Hunger with SNICKERS®
In order to get some of these fun SNICKERS® bars, I headed right to Walmart. I’m there at least a few times a week anyway to pick up various staples for our house and if you follow this blog, you know the reasons why I love shopping at Walmart: great prices, convenience, single store to get everything! I actually found the SNICKERS® bars featured on display in a center aisle of the store. On a quick glance, I saw the word “SNICKERS®” on the bars, but then when I looked more closely, I read a few other words on the candy bar wrappers!! Here are the bars in Walmart. See what I mean?
At first you only notice the “SNICKERS®” word on the wrappers, but then on careful observation, you see the different personalities on the wrappers (such as SLEEPY, LOOPY, FEISTY, and so on)? How fun is this idea? It’s a really neat concept because we’ve all been in the position where we can sense ourselves getting cranky (as an example) because we’re so hungry! So I spent a bit of time trying to think of how my personality changes when I get hungry! I came up with a few different possibilities in my mind, so I picked up six different SNICKERS® bars with personalities that I thought sounded about right for me and I headed home! Here is what I brought home!
See the different personalities I chose for myself: loopy, dramatic, rebellious, impatient, cranky and goofball! These are all things I thought I might become when I got too hungry! So I decided to carry the bars in my handbag with me for a whole week and try to pull out the right bar when I found myself hungry! I would decide at that time which personality represented my mood then. So here is how it all worked out!
On Monday, I happened to be in the car a lot. I had to deposit some checks at the bank and then swing by the supermarket to pick up groceries. By the time all that was done, it was time to pick up Sophia from Pre-K. I got in line at the car pick-up spot and realized I hadn’t eaten anything for hours at that point! I was hungry and could feel my tummy rumbling! Because of my hunger, I was definitely feeling more IMPATIENT than usual! I looked down at my bag full of SNICKERS® bars and pulled out the right one! Yep, that was exactly how I was feeling! 🙂
This is turning out to be a fun little adventure. On Wednesday, I decided to take the kids to the park. I was pushing the double stroller (which was heavy) and it was a long walk. So to pass the time more easily, the girls & I started singing short nursery rhymes together! Again, I found myself really hungry and needing a quick snack. Since I was acting silly with my daughters, I pulled out the SNICKERS® bar labelled LOOPY! That pretty much summed up my mood at that time! 🙂
By the way, I’m loving the taste of the SNICKERS® bars. They’re packed with roasted peanuts, nougat, caramel and milk chocolate so they’re both delicious and satisfying! And furthermore, they’re such a convenient way to handle my hunger when I’m busy taking care of life’s various obligations and errands! One more example happened on Saturday, when I was sitting at my desk in the office trying to get a post done for this blog. I found myself losing the motivation and inspiration to write the post. I was very hungry and frankly, I just didn’t want to type anymore! I needed a snack, so again, I checked my bag of SNICKERS® bars. I decided that the one labelled “REBELLIOUS” sounded about right!
A few bites later, I felt satisfied and was able to finish my work! Thanks, SNICKERS®!
So it turns out my personality can change in multiple different ways when I get really hungry, but a SNICKERS® bar is always effective at handling my hunger- and letting me to get back to enjoying my life! So, are you ready to find out: “Who are you when you’re hungry?” Take this fun quiz below to find out!
