Snack foods often come in pairs. Chips go with dip, nachos go with salsa, etc. I think these pairs are deliberately designed so that you can never buy them together in just the right amount. For example, you buy a bag of Tostitos and a jar of salsa, but by the time you're done the bag of nachos, there's a bit less than half a jar of salsa left. So you buy another bag of Tostitos, but FUCK!, you need another jar of salsa.
I bet food corporations do this on purpose. I would, if I were a food corporation.
I still love snacks though. Snacks really make the world go 'round. Meals get all the attention, but are very formal, requiring so much planning and commitment. Such a hassle. I think a lot more great relationships and alliances have been formed with the phrase "hey, wanna come up to my place? I've got snacks" than with "excuse me kind sir, would you mark your schedule for a dining appointment?"
In conclusion: SNACKS!!!!!!!
