I’m the type to get wrapped up in things. I get wrapped up in a project, in an errand, in a TV show and totally forget all the other things on my to-do list. Most of the time this works in my favor (you’d be surprised how quickly I can finish a project when I am not willing to stop until it is done) but sometimes, it doesn’t. Like when I end up spending a whole day on the couch glued to re-watching all of the seasons of Dr. WHO, or when I get so tied up in an exciting project that I forget to eat.
Pre-pregnancy forgetting to eat meant I got shaky, a little weak feeling, and needed to stop and find something to put in my face. Since I’ve been taken hostage by this little baby I am growing, if I don’t eat on time I turn into a hormone driven, uncomfortable, dizzy and fainting-spell approaching Prego-Zilla. Oh, and I still need to stop and find something to put in my angry raging Zilla mouth.
Thankfully, my adorable little brother just got his very first job at Speedway. I’m super proud of him, of course, for being all adult and making his own money. But I also like to drive him crazy and annoy him while he was at work. For this reason, he banned me from visiting him during working hours unless I actually need something at Speedway. Well, I think that buying a SNICKERS® in order to spare the world from Prego-Zilla is a noble endeavor. And if I get to tease my little brother while he works, that is just a bonus. Seriously though, the store is convenient, doesn’t require me trampsing through aisle after aisle, and I end up with a SNICKERS® to keep my “darker side” at bay.
Apparently I’m not the only one who does a Jekyl/Hyde impersonation when hungry! SNICKERS® is currently doing a contest asking people to make images of who they are when they are hungry, (Diva? Puhleese. That is so benign compared to Prego-Zilla!) and upload them for a chance to win. You can check out other’s submissions, or submit your own here.[question]Enter the SNICKERS® “Who are you when you’re hungry?” contest by uploading a personal photo or video from your Computer, Facebook, Instagram or use the SNICKERS® Meme Generator to create something new!

For me, I decided to move to pen and paper. I think that this accurately conveys my ability to transform from sweet, well mannered pregnant lady to monstrous destroyer of worlds in the space of 2 hours without food. But don’t worry, I stocked up last time I visited my brother, so I’ve got a stash of SNICKERS® to keep the rest of the world safe from my wrath. (Mostly. Hunger isn’t the only thing that sets me off these hormone-driven days.)
At first, he began to quip about how many I bought, and that I selected one of each of the Extreme, Peanut Butter Squares, Almond, and regular SNICKERS® (not pictured… didn’t make it through the car ride home). But I was able to squash his train of thought with a very patented Prego-Zilla look. So what? I keep 3 kinds of SNICKERS® in my purse. Come at me bro.
You can See more great SNICKERS® recipes and fun stories on the SNICKERS® social hub. But what I want to know is this:
Who are you when you’re hungry? Are you a Zilla too? Or maybe a Diva? Or a whiney infant? Maybe you just curl up and cry? I can’t wait to hear!
