The best experiences are typically provided by companies that understand you, or failing that, at least give you free orange MacBooks for taking their online surveys. Just remember: enable cookies! Lacing you with actual cookies and other snacks, via your computer, Mary Jane's Munchies.
Just launched by a former contractor and his wife who figured they weren't the only ones too lazy (among other excuses) to score their own snacks, this not-very-subtly named late night-only delivery service's slinging a variety of hour-appropriate snackery, all ordered via the interwebs (no minimum!), and delivered gratis within 45 minutes on an enviro-friendly scooter from Washington based Twist N' Go, which, when followed by "away", describes Chubby Checker's music career. Right now they're carrying all the classic snacking favorites, like "salty crunchy goodness" (Hawaiian Luau BBQ, Tim's Cascade Chips), beverages (Mountain Dew -- Code Red?!? -- vitaminwater), cookies/crackers (Mini Oreos, Nutter Butter Bites, Lemon OHs!), plus tons of candy bars, pints of 'scream, and microwavables like Hot Pockets, a crap ton of Chef Boyardees, Bowl of Noodles Cabbage Kimchi, and even soups from Campbell's Chunky, though that's tougher to discern if Jason's standing next to JaMarcus Russell. Because you can't survive on Doritos alone, MJ's also got household items like Bic lighters and Zig Zags, painkillers (ibuprofen, Tylenol), and toilet paper, as well as 3-packs of Trojan Ultra Thins, also how USC describes its ideal sorority girls in most of its school brochures.
Future plans include adding locally sourced sweetness like Full Tilt Ice Cream and chocolates from Theo, as well as taking their business into 'hoods near their current coverage area: Magnolia, and their home base on Queen Anne, which, thanks to its elevated geography, is another great place to survey like a Mac, or book.
