There is no mindless pleasure better than snacking. And there is no better tribute to the crunchy, sweet, and cheesy creations that make it possible than these saliva-inducing photos.

Winner: The Perfect Tile


I was drawing tiles while playing a game with my girlfriend in which you draw something based on two colors you pick up blindly, then I remembered the challenge and thought of doing something similar with Doritos for their geometry, so I got two bags, used the Adobe Color app to check for the Doritos complementary color, got the sheet from my gf’s trusty paper stash, and snapped this photo. iPhone5s ISO-50 f/2.2 1/120s

This was the final ounce or so in the package. I like sucking the salt off of these shelled pistachios, but I rarely do it because it makes my tongue swell up so much.

Cappuccino Wafer Cookies


I make a routine espresso stop at a local Italian bakery in town. They sell these delicious wafer cookies, imported from Italy. Many different flavours, but this Cappuccino is by far the best. I’m in small city just outside of Toronto, Ontario. Not easy to come by, so when I find them, I’ll buy a few at a time. My staff here love them! Best to try them alongside a nice espresso.

Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies


I got an awesome recipe for cookies from a coworker and thought it would be good to use it for this challenge. The cookies were delicious! Taken with a Canon T3i and a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens. (And thanks to my wife for the hand model!)

Whoa THIS is a SNACK?


This is Bacon Jalapeño Mac & Cheese. In the last week I kept seeing articles about that UConn kid that got expelled over Bacon Jalapeño Mac & Cheese and every time without fail, I would be craving some for myself. I thought it would make a great snack to gnaw on while I watched football today. I have had about 3 helpings so far and it is killer, though I’m not sure it is worth expulsion…

I shot this picture with my Canon Rebel T3i and my Canon EF-S 18-55 lens. The ISO was set at 400 and my fstop/4. Time set to 1/60 of a sec this was taken with the flash.

Pizza Rat’s BFF


Betcha can’t eat just one—I was out with my family on a trip to our local zoo. Partway through our trip, we passed a garbage can that began to shake. Suddenly this squirrel burst out of the garbage with a bag of chips in tow. It landed, found some cover, and proceeded to chow down on its well earned snack. Canon T2i, f5.6 1/50

Soda Shock


You’re gonna need some soda for all those snacks...This is my sugar & caffeine delivery system. I just wanted to submit something, I knew I wanted soda. I was inspired by the example picture that was provided. I wanted to try to get inside the can. I placed the can under a desk lamp to get enough light. I whipped out the old macro lens. So I got just a little soda and part of the iconic Coke can. I just cleaned some of the noise & aberration, removed some shadow, boosted clarity & saturation and added a little vignetting in Lightroom. I know Gizmodo always wants the submissions in landscape but it loses it’s effect in that orientation, so I hope you keep it portrait. Canon 28 mm f/1.8 USM lens 1/125 sec at f/2.8, IOS 100

Extreme Jellybean Closeup


Closeup, am I doing it right? You can keep your salmon and jalapeno flavored belly beans! There is no denying the FACT that Starburst jelly beans are the best jelly beans. The shoot also gave me a chance to pick some of these up as a treat, I don’t have them very often. Camera: Nikon D700, Lens: Nikkor 50mm 1.4, Settings: Shutter 1/60 Aperture 1.4, Flash: one 400ws strobe bare bulb bounced off of white ceiling with white card fill oon right.

BBQ Chips


When I think of snacks, potato chips are a favorite of mine, and the BBQ flavored ones are the pinnacle of snacking IMHO. These are Wise’s BBQ potato chips, and they were consumed shortly thereafter.

The image was captured with a Nokia Lumia 635, and post processed in 4.06 for color, contrast and saturation to bring out all that BBQ goodness.

Campfire in a dish. Marshmallows, melty chocolate, Graham crackers. So hot it burns your mouth. So good you scrape the dish clean. iPhone6, f/2.2, 1/30 sec., edited in Aviary.

King Chocolate


Nothing too interesting story-wise, but thought a Hershey’s bar on a white background would be pretty neat looking in macro mode.

Great photos, but I must say, I’m a bit disappointed. No Cheetos??
