Snack Benefits

One of the fringe "benefits" — and I use that term extremely loosely — of working here at Panic are the times when Ol' Snacky Cabel decides to clean out the powerful and mysterious Panic New Snack Cache™. This only happens when a selection of new snacks has been safely earmarked for Noby and Kaori to taste-test (look for that Goodies page sometime in the next 4 years!), leaving a large quantity of leftovers, usually product duplicates purchased for hot-swappable snack safety, ready to be consumed.

For those who are curious, here's what that typically looks like:

Don't be fooled — those may look like bog-standard Reese's, Raisinets, and Kit Kat, but rest assured they are in fact Marshmallow Reese's, Dark Chocolate Raisinets, and Coffee Kit Kat. Mind blown, right?

Snack standouts this time around include the extremely mysterious Pringles Adobadas, the creme and comedy-filled Mini Dickmann's (courtesy Jessica Roberts via Germany), and a legitimately sacrilicious Chocolate Cross, left over from Easter. $1.99.

We also offer medical, vision, and dental. For what it's worth.


Can I work for panic? :]

I have a panic sticker on my nalgene and everything.

Haha. That pile o' snacks (tm) sounds like a stomach ache waiting to happen. Too bad Panic can't employ the whole world. Hopefully your Wii is on its way to a swift recovery, Cabel! Looking forward to a review when you get it back. Maybe by then I will have been able to score one in my neck of the woods...

Looks like the dental insurance gets put to good use.

Panic™: Thank god for high metabolism.

Nothing says "hard work" like limited edition goodies. Have you tried Hershey's Take 5 Limited Edition Chocolate Cookie? It's basically Take 5 where the pretzel is replaced with a girlscout-type cookie inside. Delicious.

Cabel, are you really eating all this sort of crap? Guess this will harm your DNA, seriously!

Did you ever consider that you're passing up a career in the snack business? You seem to have a natural instinct for what's delicious and what isn't. Having the metabolism of a race horse helps as well.

I would forego the health benefits for snacks, and would jettison the 401K kicker if you provided free Pocari Sweat. I would graciously donate my hoard of imported cup-style ramen.

P.S. I'm pretty sure I saw either you or your doppleganger at Uwajimaya in the snack aisle last weekend. Unless the avatar in your blog masthead is based on an actual person besides yourself.

"sacrilicious" slay me, man.

Wow. A heart attack kit.

Here's the kid's version. Don't you love how they are so proud of "over one pound of Candy!". Somehow "over one pound of sugar" wouldn't have the same effect. :-)

So...are you hiring? I'm cool to hang around and like to read neat blogs.

Thought that said NEW! Go-Farts for a second. Tell people interviewing you'll pay them a "100 Grand...", show them where they'll sit, then toss a yummy 100 Grand to them every payday.

I love all the Panic-invented words... sacrilicious, funscinating, etc. Cabel, you need to add a favicon to this site. It's severely lacking.
