The only complaint that I have about my commute is that it’s too short. (What a hard life I lead, right?) It takes me 5 minutes to get to work, 7 if I hit the red lights. So what’s the problem? I am addicted to listening to talk radio, specifically Kidd Kraddick in the Morning. If I happen to hop in the car when they’re on a commercial break, chances are, I won’t get to hear very much of anything! Poop sandwich.
Recently, my love of Kidd Kraddick and my love of yummy food collided. (“When your favorite obsessions combine, I am Freakin’ Awesome!”)
I think I’ve mentioned before that my mom works for a company called The Festive Kitchen. They cater, but they also sell frozen and fresh foods. This is very dangerous for me because when I visit my mom, I’m tempted to sample EVERYTHING. Or if I pop in to buy one item (like today), I walk out with three items instead (like today)!
I had heard through the grapevine (aka my mom) that the FK was selling Freakin’ Awesome and giving a portion of the proceed’s to a charity called Kidd’s Kids. Food + Kidd Kraddick + charity. That’s a no brainer!
Freakin’ Awesome is a snack mix made of tortilla chips, cereal, dried cranberries, peanuts, and almonds. It’s coated in a cayenne pepper, cinnamon, corn syrup mixture. It’s spicy, sweet, tangy, salty, and crunchy all at once. (That’s my kind of snack!) Plus, foods you eat with your hands are my weakness.
I rolled up to the store after school on Friday, and who did I see? My mom! (She doesn’t normally work in the actual store, so I wasn’t expecting to see her!) What a nice surprise! She also convinced me to buy salsa, chips, and trail mix in addition to the Freakin’ Awesome. (Someone’s too good at their job.)
The FK Freakin’ Awesome + Kidd’s Kids deal is only until the end of the month, so if you live in the DFW area, you should totally hit up FK and get you some. I don’t think they sell the stuff online, so everyone else is just out of luck. But if you are feeling charitable, you should hop over to the Kidd’s Kids website. Every year the charity sends chonically and terminally ill children and their families to Disney world for a week. The idea is that the kids and their families make memories, are filled with hope, and get to enjoy some time being normal together. My heart melts just thinking about it!
Do you have any charities that are near and dear to your heart? I am also partial to The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation because Stephen’s brother has CF. Do you listen to morning talk radio? What station? How long is your commute?*
