Dale Talde’s Retro Sugar Fix

If you find a box of Whatchamacallits, give them to Dale Talde to stash away for the apocalypse.

F&W asked chefs around the country how they would prepare for an apocalyptic situation, a la The Road. Some went for luxury goods—others focused on survival.

Chef Dale Talde would bring rice, a bottle of Four Roses bourbon, canned sardines, salt and Whatchamacallits—crunchy, peanut buttery candy bars popularized in the 1980s with a New Wave-ish commercial. “Those are the best,” Talde says. “When you find them, you have to buy the whole box.”
