running joke in our house…. that I better make sure I eat every few
hours because if I don’t the “hangry monster” comes out! Yes, I
am confessing this here for all to see… Hi. My name is Heather and
I get “hangry.”
don’t eat regularly, I can get a tad bit moody. I confess that I have
lost my temper, had a melt down or had my feelings hurt, purely
because I was hungry and not thinking straight or being rational.
time Eric thought I was just over exaggerating things and being super
dramatic when I was hungry, until he read an article that people’s
moods and concentration really are affected when they are hungry! And
while we joke that my sudden mood changes are brought on when
I am hungry, I am happy to know that I am not alone.
when checking out at Walmart, I saw a display of SNICKERS® candy
bars, and was instantly reminded of the hilarious SNICKERS®
commercials and tag line: “You’re not you when you’re hungry!”
Since, like I said, this really is the story of my life; super
irritable (totally NOT me) one moment and then as soon as I take a
bite of food, back to my to my normal carefree, angelic self
(Smile!), I was reminded I should eat a small snack (ASAP!!), you
know to combat that “hangry monster!”
of my favorite fall treats is caramel apples. Since I know I must not
be the only one that gets a little grumpy when they are “hangry,”
I was inspired by my favorite fall treat and those SNICKERS® bars (you know the candy bar everyone loves because of the gooey caramel, creamy nougat, crunchy peanuts and rich milk chocolate),
to create custom DIY Caramel Apple Kits to gift to my friends and
family this fall.
love seeing the smile on my friends’, family members’ and neighbors’
faces when I surprise them with a special treat. Not only is this DIY
kit the most adorable way to celebrate fall and let your friends know
you are thinking about them; but it will help combat hunger and will
let your friends know that you “still love them to the core even
when their hangry”! 🙂
on your gift budget and/or time, you could create a large DIY Caramel
Apple Gift Basket, or smaller, more individualized kits. I am
providing general directions for both below, but feel free to change
up the caramel apple toppings and gift tag sayings to fit your needs. Since SNICKERS® is my topping of choice when I get caramel apples at those fancy candy shops, I had to include some in my goodie bags! Other favorite topping ideas include coconut, nuts, sprinkles… basically pretty much whatever you want!
