The Piglet

13 Piglet-Watching Snacks

February 21, 2015

The Piglet is to us what game day is to sports fans: There's excitement, heightened emotions, cheering, yelling, and plenty of eating. On a good day, there might even be a foam finger thrown into the mix. Though we're not tossing around a pigskin, we are frying some bacon and wrapping it around a few water chestnuts. And our spectacle takes place on our laptops, instead of a stadium, which means making a mess just won't do.

Catch up on this week's Piglet judgments with these 13 snacks that will keep your keyboard clean and your belly full:
