Whether it's Magic vs Bird, or Alien vs Predator, entire eras can be defined by head-to-head matchups of legends. Now, Second Rate Snacks takes the battle to the greatest arena of all: your stomach.
From a Framingham woman inspired by a vending machine carrying "Animal Snackers", SRS offers (mostly) objective online taste-testing, pairing foodstuffs of all kinds against their victual nemeses in categories like "Pastry" (Pop-Tarts vs Pop-Ups), "Drinks" (Mello Yello vs Mountain Dew), and "Candy" (the intense East Coast-West Coast Twizzler/Red Vines feud). Some titanic clashes
Hydrox vs Oreo: This legendary face-off of multicultural cookies also un-buries a shocking revelation from the author's past: "My dad was annoyingly quasi-kosher and didn't allow us to eat Nabisco products".
Hot Pockets vs Tony's Pouches: Under "Pseudo-Meals", SRS weighs heavy on the side of reliably delicious Pockets, though they do acknowledge that "from a quick Google search, I see Tony's Pouches has at least one huge fan in the World of Warcraft forums". Unfortunately for Tony's, that endorsement was not from Leroy Jenkins.
Doritos vs Uncle Ray's: In a true David et Goliath, SRS compares Frito-Lay's Nacho Cheese powerhouse to Dearborn, MI's favorite snack-meister Uncle Ray, who shares his life lessons on the back of his products, most likely to distract eaters from "toasted cardboard" chips that smell like "dry catfood".
In case simple viewing pleasure isn't enough, SRS lets you vote on your own favorites, though it's hard to objectively judge Eskimo Pie vs Klondike Bar when both are dribbling simultaneously from your creepy pop-out second jaw.
