One day, Joe and Carly discovered a little-known Albert Einstein paper called ‘The General Theory of Snacking Relativity’. Einstein stated that snacks didn’t need to be ‘good’ or ‘bad’.
Blending healthy stuff like dried fruit, nuts and seeds with a sprinkling of tasty ingredients created an uber-tasty natural snack that also provided a great source of fibre and protein. Genius! Unfortunately, the tabloids were too busy printing photos of him canoodling with Marilyn Monroe, and no one noticed. So Joe and Carly turned theory into practice...
One day, Joe and Carly were in the kitchen, making a hot drink. All of a sudden in rushed their dog Gavlah who bowled Carly off her feet. The coffee beans flew into the air and – along with some sultanas, cranberries, cashews and a chocolate bar – landed in the open blender.
Joe shrugged, thought ‘what the heck’ and turned the blender on. The resulting mix tasted delicious and was still made mainly of good stuff! So they made loads more and shared it with the world.
One day, Joe and Carly were in Geneva visiting the Large Hadron Collider. At 5pm all the scientists stopped playing Minesweeper and finished work for the day. Left to their own devices Joe and Carly thought they’d give the machine a whirl and threw in a mix of oranges, jumbo peanuts, sultanas and dark chocolate. Soon the ingredients were flying round the 27km track in opposite directions at 99.9998% the speed of light.
The resulting impact was spectacular to look at but the mixed ingredients were even better to munch on. Oh, and using readings from the collision, the scientists discovered the Higgs Boson inside a blood orange-flavoured sultana.
One day, Joe and Carly were at Wimbledon enjoying a Pimms and lemonade with their strawberries. Andy Murray was battling away to win the match but kept struggling with his serve. Joe thought there was only one thing for it and snuck himself courtside disguised as a (slightly greying) ballboy.
On his next serve instead of chucking him a yellow tennis ball Joe handed him a handful of mini strawberries, juicy strawberry-infused raisins, whole cashews, white chocolate and cranberries. Keen to give anything a go to seal the win, Andy smashed the delicious mix over the net for a clean ace. The crowd roared as the speeding snack bounced once before flying into the mouth of a line judge, who gave the yummy strawberries & cream combination a double thumbs up. Game, set and match!
