Making That "Good Walk" A Little Less Spoiled

Some of you might have heard my favorite Mark Twain quote before: "Golf is a good walk spoiled."  Well, sometimes, I have to admit, I agree with Mr. Twain.  For those of you who might not know, I've been a golfer almost all of my life (21 of the 26 years, to be exact).  While I love being outside and smacking the golf ball as far as I can, even I have to admit that some days on the golf course can feel a bit longer than I'd like.  Maybe it's because I'm not playing that well, or sometimes it's just really hot outside, or it could be because that group in front of us is moving way too slowly.  In any case, the only reason any of these things actually get to me is because I'm SO HUNGRY.  

When I'm hungry, I am not myself.  (Just ask my husband.)  Drives go to the left and right, my mind wanders, and I can't possibly concentrate for enough time to line up a putt.  You know what helps?  A SNICKERS® as one of my golf bag essentials.

Rounds of golf, even at their quickest, are close to four hours.  Recently I discovered SNICKERS "2 To Go," which is perfect when I'm playing 18 holes, so I can have one midway through each my front nine and back nine.  

Have you tried the SNICKERS Almond, Xtreme, or Peanut Butter?  All three come in these awesome multi-packs.  My favorite is definitely the Xtreme, which is all peanuts and caramel (no nougat) - amazing!

Did you know that you burn 400 calories per hour playing golf and carrying your golf bag?  Yeah, it's awesome, and totally worth the trip to Walmart on the way to the course to get an Xtreme with 10 grams of protein to keep me moving all day.

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.  Voting begins at noon on May 11, 2015 and ends at 11:59:59AM EST on July 15, 2015.  You can also see more great SNICKERS® recipes and fun stories on the SNICKERS® social hub.  Speaking of fun stories, ever shared a SNICKERS with a gator?

Have you tried any of the other SNICKERS flavors?  
Do you love SNICKERS commercials as much as I do?  My favorite is Brady Brunch one, for sure!

Mmmm...Snickers. I have tried every kind, of course, and I like the original or x-treme best. I used to eat a Snickers before every hockey game in college. Seemed like the right thing to do. I'm like you too, if I don't have food I get "hangry". :P

Snickers are super awesome and will give you that "boost" to keep golfing! The Robin Williams commercial was my fave :)

Their commercials get me every time! Also, I had no idea you burned that many calories during golf. I might have to tag along next time Andrew goes!

Good for you girl, I wish I could golf! My husband wishes I could golf - maybe I should try again this summer! A snickers is seriously the perfect halfway snack to keep you going!

Great idea to pack a SNICKERS® on the golf course! I never thought about how long a round of golf lasts! #client
