We love us some Video games
at our house! Yes We Do! Other then
Rowan every single person who lives
here or spends Weekends is a Gamer.
Chief offender would be my son but John is
hooked on Call Of Duty and I am a KOTER* fan
as well as Oblivion and Fable. There have been
many other games through the years but right
now those three Top my list. Andrew, well, let's
just say we lost him to WOW* (R.I.P Andrew)
I got my first system as a child and yes
I was around for PONG but Atari was my first.
Pitfall rocked! Even as I grew older I played
and went through the first couple of Nintendo's
before my son was even born. Once he got here
I had some competition and soon it was a big deal
at our house. We have every system there is, even
the handheld and I admit it I have more then once
fallen victim to the "Gotta Catch Them All!" Fever
on my sons Gameboy! I also admit to grounding my kids
for some pretty trivial reasons to get my hands on
their systems so I could feed my addiction. I have lost
John for days whenever a new Call of Duty hits the
shelf. The whole family enjoys playing together
and the only problem with this kind of hobby
is you get so hooked you often neglect other things
around the house. You know, dishes, laundry
and um, cooking dinner!
What that means is everyone
is always foraging for something to eat when
on a gaming roll. Finding the right Gaming
snack is an art form all in itself. It needs to
be just the right size and easy to hold. It can not
be greasy for you will loose valuable grip on
the controllers. It must have flavor and not need
special care such as refrigeration or heat. Did
I forget anything? Oh, yeah, my Mom says can you
please make it a little bit healthy? Ooops, in my
need for graphics I forgot about that little point!
Well Gamer Grub to the rescue. Now
I thought I would surprise my son with this
review for he is always up from the Dungeon
looking for something good to munch on and
just as often complaining that I do not have
anything in the house that meets his needs.
So I contacted these guys and asked to do
a review. Now Andrew may have every Gaming
magazine out there and know the scheduled release
date for games due to launch 5 years from now but
no way does he know about this stuff! Today he
walks in the door from School and I broadly smile
and hold out the bag. He grabs it and rips it
open and says "Cool I have been looking for this
UHG! He knew!
Okay, but I didn't know. At least all that much
about them so I dug in and gave them a whirl.
Crunchy, tasty, perfect size (passes slowly
under nose) and aroma and best of all no grease to
slow down my trigger finger. AND I do not have to
leave the game to go and cook! WOW, the best
of all worlds. Now if I can get that ringing out
of my ears, the echo of Moms conscious and
answer the question "Is it good for you?"
Well, in this case, the answer is yes. Gamer
Grub has added Vitamins and Neurotransmitters.
Now they are not a diet food but at only 160 calories
per serving they are not too bad in that area either.
They also have 3 grams of protein 20% of three
differant vitamens 0 cholesterol and 1 gram of Fiber.
Not to shabby even by Mother standards. They taste
good and did I mention no grease to slow down my
Gamer Grub comes in 4 flavors right now and I can
personally attest to the yummyness of the Pizza and
P, B and J but they also carry Choclate and Wasabi!
Gamer Grub was pretty much invented by people who
had the same issues as I did, greasy hands and no
time to get up for the game is that good! It is
manufactured by Biosilo Foods, Inc. and keep an
eye out for these guys are on the way up with thier
inventive ideas for the snacking world. I know
I am sold and plan to get some more of this
snack for it is just perfect for my house.
