This is What a Snack Jacket Looks Like


Today’s “WTF, why didn’t I think of that?!” moment is brought to you by the creative genius behind this snack jacket (snacket?) made entirely out of ziploc bags and stuffed with yummies like cereal, carrots, and pizza bites — not to mention an entire freaking sandwich. You know, because filling a brown paper sack with lunch food and storing it in your locker is so last year.


We came across this masterpiece after tumblr user j4ya posted pics of the jacket with the caption, “MY FRIEND DIANE MADE A ZIPLOC BAG JACKET,” which is about the level of capslocked enthusiasm we feel about fashion-forward foodwear. (Real talk, it was hard not to write this entire post in caps.) Diane, wherever you are, we salute you. Now make us a snack jacket.

Florida Woman Claims This Goldfish is Literally ‘Christ on a Cracker’

Screen Shot 2013-04-05 at 12.58.04 PM

We’ve all had our moments of appreciation for Goldfish cracker’s cheesy goodness, but one woman from Melbourne, Florida has taken Goldfish worship to the next level — by claiming her cracker is a sign from God.

Apparently, Melbourne resident Patti Burke was working her way through a bag of her favorite snacks when she noticed that one of the Goldfish crackers was just a little different, “He had a cross on him, and he had a crown circle up by his head. Something I’ve never seen before out of all the Goldfish I’ve eaten.”

Burke, who eats two to three pounds of Goldfish in an average week, knew that this cracker was special. “I believe it’s a sign, a sign from God,” she told reporters.

Since Goldfish manufacturer Pepperidge Farms has denied deliberately manufacturing the crossed cracker,  Burke’s salty revelation might in fact be proof of divine intervention. We’re a little doubtful that Goldfish would be the Lord’s cracker of choice — Saltines are certainly holier — but hey, we won’t bash anyone’s taste in sacred snack food. We’re just happy that (according to Burke) God loves our favorite cheddar-flavored munchies as much as we do.
