It's as much a hovercraft as a pancake is a waffle.

Data Bytes (or Nybbles & Bits)

Punny snacks for computer-loving geeks (like us).

Inspired by computer terminology, Data Bytes are chocolate snacks shaped like little rectangles that are perforated for breaking into "nybbles" (half a byte) or individual "bits" (1/8th of a byte). Each bit would be stamped with either a "1" or a "0" and the binary combinations would be randomly varied. Any "byte" grabbed from the box would thereby represent a randomly selected number.

Data Bytes could be chocolates with white chocolate numbers with various flavor varieties. They could also be crunchy snacks, like perforated crackers, but I'm not sure how the numbers would be put on. I imagine chocolate shapes are easier to make, so I'm going with that. Cookies are a definite possibility, as well.

Optional side product: Computer Chips - shaped crispy snack chips with little computer chip-like designs on them.

       Plus, if you collect all the different parts, you can build an entire working computer out of chocolate.

       Oh, I was not aware of that spelling (nybble). Apparently both are acceptable, but I think I prefer the spelling with the Y.

       I used to enjoy making rude words with my Alphabeti Spaghetti, but Mum would always scold me. Now I can enjoy making them in binary, while she's blissfully unaware of my naughtiness!

       You still live with your mom and eat alphabet soup?

       "You still live with your mom and eat alphabet soup?"   

       Sadly, yes.

       Sadly nothing. I'd kill for that setup again ;)

       I already called it.

       This is nice. But I'd prefer a cereal, like AlphaBits, but with hex characters (0-9, A-F). I'd be programming before I was fully awake. Sprinkle some caffeine on that and you're good to go. Breakfast of über-nerds... now that's good eatin'!

       [jutta]: What is the question to your answer of "no"? Is binary snack food currently available? How about a link to support your McDonald's reference? I was not aware.
