Feb 12, 2013 12:31 pm

Just as I make the Baltimore crab pretzel part of my everyday life, I discover the crabby snack, or simply "crabby." It's from Philly, as I discovered while watching Silver Linings Playbook, which is Oscar-nominated in every acting category. Truthfully I thought it was just meh, until I looked up what the hell a crabby snack actually was. Now I'm obsessed and spouting variations like it's my job.
