I'd like to stock up on some protein heavy snacks to keep at my desk for the days I'm less organized. The big difficulty is that I'm allergic to tree nuts and can't eat meat. Shelf stable would be ideal, but as long as I'm not having to do prep every day, refrigerated would probably be okay.
My wife is a nurse and she works long shifts and packs her lunch. She loves cool kitchen food gadgets. Does anyone have any suggestions? [more inside]
I volunteered to bring some vegan snacks to an afterwork get together; could be anything from hummus and carrots to something more substantial. I need to be able to assemble or make it/them the day before. Thank you!
I'm a grown woman, but when I haven't eaten and my sugar drops, the "hangriness" starts. The anger, irritation, total irrationality. I've tried carrying luna bars, etc, (though that doesn't help a ton) but I think I'd like to throw together some snack packs (like,a ziplock bag with assorted goodies) for myself to toss in my bag when I'm out the door. I'll also be traveling a lot in the next couple months, and definitely need to be on top of this. I'd love some suggestions on what kinds of food to throw in my snack packs.

My boyfriend is having some coworkers over tomorrow night for a little get-together/party thing. This isn't their official christmas party (they had that at work last night), just a few (6-7 or so people) getting together. When asked about what he's doing for food, my boyfriend just assumed they'd all just go to the grocery store to get something, which I personally find pretty... weird. As I'm helping host, I want to provide better noms! [more inside]
Inspired but discouraged by the class assumptions inherent in various rare/unique foods challenge lists (possibly spammy example) that include pricey and rare foods like fugu, absinthe and black truffle, friends and I are working on a similar list that focuses on food that anyone who eats could potentially find and afford to eat.

This week we'll be embarking on a complicated task at work that will take about two days. The last time we did a couple of us brought junk food snacks, but two of the women in our group are perpetually dieting and spent the day looking longingly at the food, and then seeming very regretful when they eventually ate it. That makes me sad. I'd like to bring some food that they wouldn't feel bad about eating. [more inside]

So, a few weeks ago we were in Freeport, Maine and saw a giant whoopie pie, which we knew immediately would be the perfect Chrismas gift for my youngest brother. Then, tonight, my wife found a giant Rice Krispie Treat, which she bought as a Christmas gift for my middle brother. So now we have A Theme for amusing consumables for the rest of the family. But now we need to come up with some other Abnormally Large Food Items for 5-6 other family members. Help me find them. [more inside]

Are there any online retailers of snack foods (cookies, candy, pretzels) that will deliver to Norway? I don't understand customs regulations very well, but I think these may have to be stores actually in Norway. I would be paying with a US credit card and am willing to muddle about the site with Google translate and squinting at the pictures.
