NSFM2012 - Day 7
Featured snack: String Cheese
Rating: 5 After-School Specials
There are plenty of snacks that involve cheese but very few that are cheese. That’s what makes String Cheese one of the best snacks ever - it makes it okay to just straight up eat a big old hunk of cheese.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with cheese and crackers - C&C’s place in The Snack Hall of Fame has been cemented for as far back as any snack historian can remember - but they often require considerable equipment, prep time, and assembly. String cheese does away with all the contrivance and cuts straight to the reason everyone showed up in the first place. It’s like being able to have Simon and Obama without Garfunkel and Biden. Like watching a Blu-ray without having to watch 20 minutes of promos about how awesome Blu-rays are or Downton Abbey without the inexplicable introduction by Laura Linney. Like having shitty movies without having the books they are based on that are written basically like screenplays to shitty movies. Like being able to cut a mediocre double album down into a kick-ass 12-track banger. I’m talking all killer, no filler. That’s what I’d like String Cheese to represent.
