Word on the street was that Munchie Machine's Scooby Snack is one of the best eats around…it won the Sweet Tooth award at the LA Street Food Fest, Mayor Villaraigosa called it "...to die for", and they have an extremely loyal following of dedicated stalkers fans that just can't get enough!
I NEEDED to try it!! In fact, my entire purpose of showing up at the West Side Food Fest in Venice was to try this Scooby Snack!
Hanging out at the Munchie Machine truck, I felt like I was at some secret cool-kid parking lot party in the middle of Venice High! They have the coolest staff ever!...super fun and interactive w/ the customers, passionate about their food, and they give out FREE HIGH-FIVE’s!! How can you deny that!
I would never in my life think of eating something like the Scooby Snack…a sandwich with peanut butter, strawberry jelly, graham crackers, marshmallows, AND chocolate (sounds like something my little brother Zach would make himself for lunch…). It wasn’t even on the menu!! I had a mini internal freak-out when I couldn't find it...thinking maybe they didn't have the Scooby Snack that day and I wouldn't be able to complete my mission!...but then I saw it, written on a small chalk board in the center of the truck...the incredible Scooby Snack and its description, woohoo!!
Scooby Snack pre-torch
You get a choice of Caramel, Coconut, or Cinnamon marshmallows from Plush Puffs (yum!) to go on your Scooby Snack, so I decided to go with Caramel and ordered mine up! A few torches later, I got my hands on it...smooth, nutty peanut butter, fruity jelly, crumbly graham crackers, melted chocolate, and those gooey caramel marshmallows...all sandwiched between two slices of toasted wheat bread...I was speechless. Somehow, someway, the flavors all come together in your mouth and create a nostalgic flashback that just makes you want to give the sandwich a hug!
Now that I've tried the Scooby Snack, this is the only way I want to eat PB&J!…in fact I liked it so much, I went back and bought a 2nd! Now that’s love!!
