With the Kentucky Derby right around the corner, we've got bourbon and heavy duty snacks on the brain -- anything that can sustain us for a full day of bets and wide-brimmed hats. The race itself may only last a few minutes, but you'll work up an appetite cheering, and plus -- these treats are worth sticking around for.
