The next best thing

Sinead O'Connor crooned that nothing compares to you, but I have to say that nothing compares to Pop-Tarts. I love them.. god do I love that frosted, brown sugar and cinnamon goodness. They are my weakness.

As I discussed with a friend of mine recently, we decided on a scale of 1 - 10 that Pop-Tarts are a 10 and liver (or mushrooms and olives for me) are a 1 on the "tasty" scale. Everything else falls somewhere in between.

Aside from the tastiness of Pop-Tarts, there's the general awesomeness of them as well as their portability and other HFCS crap. I've discovered something just as addictive as Pop-Tarts. The good thing is that it's not as bad on your waistline, however, watch your pocket books!

Steep and Cheap

Without realizing it, we've ordered at least 1 thing a week for the last 6 weeks.. I think.

The website even warns you:

Check throughout the day to see what deal we have going. Check back often. Warning: It’s addicting.

If you're into skiing, snowboarding, camping, or just doing a lot of outdoorsy stuff, the website is for you.

Can't hit F5 all day? Go to and set up email alerts on particular items. I have a few words 'tagged', the emails are very timely, and I was able to snag 2 pairs of my beloved Vasque Velocity trail shoes for $37 each.

It's downright criminal!

So next time I'm eating Pop-tarts, I won't be worrying about my waistline when I'm hitting the trails in the $15 Nathan waist pack that I scored, the $37 trail shoes I've beaten up, and the Mountain Hardwear base layer top. Hey, I might be tubby, but at least I look good for less!

Thanks Jen! I was almost becoming productive at work. Thank goodness this came along to circumvent that. I'm loving Whiskey Militia too...
