    This is just like the pringles!

    • dalonewolf25

      Alt-Text: Mrs. Sandwich can have an ATTITUDE when she wants to.

    • Frank

      We have instant pringles?

      • AvanWolf

        I thought pringles were a little more instantaneous that this… no boiling water needed. ^^

        • dalonewolf25

          Actually, I was trying to make an argument about Pringles Snack Stacks and the original packaging for Pringles (the long and small tubes) and how the former is more advantageous than the latter.

          • dalonewolf25

            For a little bit greater nominal fee, of course…

          • Argent Stonecutter

            The original Pringles cans are more awesome because you can use them to build long range WiFi antennas.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            aaaannnnddd u’ve done this :|

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Not officially.

          • dalonewolf25

            But with enough time, money, and supplies, who wouldn’t?

    • Rocket Knight boy

      …pringles…”90 PRINGLES INSIDE!” (observe the small print) “on average!”

      those thieving buggers lol

      • Score

        It’s similar with mini jaffa cakes. You can get a pack of them, and they contain on average six, but I sometimes get packets of 7 instead. 5 is actually rarer.

      • dalonewolf25

        Which means that someone had 181 pringles in his can, and another one had one taken away from his stomach by the can itself.

  2. rtlstien

    Brings backs memories when I was a kid shopping for food with my mom

  3. IceKitsune

    lol at winy Peanut. And good for Mrs. Sandwich not giving it to it

    • IceKitsune

      I mean whiny Peanut. (spelling fail)

    • dalonewolf25

      It to it?

      • dalonewolf25

        Mommy! That person called me an “it”!

        • AvanWolf

          perfect avatar XD

  4. Frank

    This wouldn’t be a rant against those cups of noodles, would it?

    • Dissension

      Of course not, everyone loves ramen cups!

      • dalonewolf25

        I think the loose ones w/out Styrofoam are better…

    • Rick Griffin

      Well it was inspired by ramen conversations I had today

      • dalonewolf25

        Were Chow|Mein and EasyMacs included in the conversation, by any chance?

        • Rick Griffin

          Certainly not; I can’t have cow milk so Easy Mac is not on the table for discussion.

          Some things you have to make from scratch. And if you have to make it from scratch, might as well make fettuccine alfredo.

          • Dissension

            Fettuccine alfredo is certainly more delicious than Easy Mac. x3

          • dalonewolf25

            Actually, I think they did make fettuccine alfredo ready-to-cook as well…just add water.

          • Frank

            Allergy? or was Uncle Reuben’s cow looking?

          • Rick Griffin

            You are missing the point! I have to make it from scratch so I can use goat and sheep milk instead. As far as I know, neither of those come instant in anything.

          • Rick Griffin

            Also, I now have a taste for homemade alfredo so I don’t think I could be tempted by any instant version of it.

          • Frank

            Things are funnier when you miss the point

          • BeatReaktor

            At least you get to have homemade food. I live off pizza and tacos :D

          • dalonewolf25

            And soda and sandwiches! Don’t forget about them too! And add Hot Pockets™ to the list, too.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Yo-Quick, instant goat-milk yogurt, by Mt Capra.

          • BeatReaktor

            Hot pockets™ are the greatest!

          • Argent Stonecutter

            BTW, Yo-Quick is real.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            wut yo-quick :? ?

          • Argent Stonecutter

            Instant goat-milk yoghurt.

          • sonic id furreh!!!

            that saoooowwwnnnnddddsss interesting :| ?

          • Draven Darklight

            acutally from personal experience while getting goat or sheep milk in stuff is really unlikely, you’d be surpised how much stuff doesn’t really need cow milk. Though I admit I ussually never even bother to check becasue I just know they’ll have milk or some byproduct. making everything fresh is probably safer, but I love me some prosessed food.

  5. Pseudo Faux

    Behold, the power of Mead.

    • Chip Uni

      *grin* I ate mutton last night… now I need to find some mead!

  6. BeatReaktor

    I want instant kibble!

  7. Asteri

    NOT INSTANT ENOUGH!!! [....]

    • Frank

      Next they’ll be saying it’s even more instant than “instant” because you don’t have to remove the little bowl cover!

      • Asteri

        ….the cover melts away when you pour hot water!!!!! BRILLIANT!!

      • Alex M.

        The next step of “instant”
        Now it comes ready and hot.
        Always keep hot, don’t ask.

      • Hypergenesis

        I think he was referring to the military type instant ramen where you just pull a cord, wait 2 minutes and eat.

        • dalonewolf25

          Actually, they do exist…I liked the instant rice with chicken, though…

    • Dissension

      Sounds like you want Kibble, Ready to Eat (KRE). Just open the package and crush the vial to boil the water, creating the gravy!

      • Asteri

        actually, I like this idea better :D

      • Frank

        Don’t they use a pull-cord now? (see hypergenesis’ comment above?)

        • Dissension

          I haven’t experienced an MRE in several years, so they probably do!

          • Final Silence

            No, MREs are still the same, unless they just show everyone water one. Haven’t seen one with a pull-cord. mmmmmm…

          • JackDesert

            I seen a travel coffee/cocoa where you peel the bottom off and then push this bubble to break the water and lime packs and that boils the water in the cup. heating up the liquid you drink… very nice but not my cup of tea.

  8. byt

    For some reason Peanut looks older to me here.

  9. Alex M.

    Awww, I remember when i was a child and i went to the supermarket with my mom, and asked her for buying me”x” or “y” thing.
    Nice touch with the “Fill to the line”.

    • BeatReaktor

      I remember when my dad used to take me, but when I asked for stuff he told me to “shut up”

      • Inu225

        Well that’s not nice.
        D :

        • dalonewolf25

          OOOOO! Mommy! Mommy! Can I buy this?? Can I, can I, please?

          • Frank

            You… want to buy… Inu?
            Where are you going to keep him?

          • The game

            I went to the store with my mom today, and just to bug her i started beggin for everything.

            Its funny how parents can still say ‘no’ so much so many years later.

          • Frank

            Heh. Guess it’s an acquired reflex when you’re a parent

  10. lightwolf21

    Is it just me, or does Peanut’s tag seems a little smaller or shorter than usual, in panel 3…

    • Frank

      Perspec… It shrunk in the w… Ah! I give up!

      • XAV TAY TOR TOT

        I think it is perspective, ’cause Peanut IS leaning back.
        …..as it seems…..

  11. Wilford B. Wolf

    Dude, I’d rather go for the mutton than the kibble… mmmm, meat….

  12. Raxki Yamato

    But it come with a bowl T~T meany…

  13. Elwood Blutarsky

    Peanut’s a dog, like there is any chance he’s not going to eat whatever she buys him anyway?

    • Foxstar

      He’ll eat it, she doesn’t want to pay extra for packaging when buying a sack of kibble will do.

  14. ReCreate

    Instant kibble, now with more instant?
    >_>
    And peanut looks cute in panel 0. :P

  15. Russiarules1

    That is how capitalism works, Peanut! Now if you fine people excuse me, I will go to the store and but some instant soup.

    (I am 99% capitalist, Mexican capitalist)

    • dalonewolf25

      but…

    • Alex M.

      Carlos Slim btw?

      • Russiarules1

        It is hard to believe that the most richest man in the world is a Mexican, every time I think about it makes me laugh a little bit.

        • BeatReaktor

          Why? U Mad?

          • Alex M.

            “On March 29, 2007, Slim surpassed Warren Buffett as the world’s second richest person with an estimated net worth of US$53.1 billion compared with Buffett’s US$52.4 billion.”
            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carlos_Slim
            Believe…

          • Russiarules1

            Hahaha, nah. not mad.
            It is just funny because Mexico is going down hard in many ways.

          • Alex M.

            yeah
            :/

    • Russiarules1

      EDIT
      That is how capitalism works, Peanut! Now if you fine people excuse me, I will go to the store and buy* some instant soup.
      * represents the correction of the mistake I did

  16. EchoFireant

    Kibbowl :D

  17. Inu225

    In response to panel 3.
    I forgot who said this to me but someone told me when you buy bottled water you’re basically paying for the plastic rather than the filtered water.

  18. xhunterko

    But, but, it’s got it’s own bulk packaging and everything! See, you save a dollar extra if you buy more! See?

    • silverfang16

      No…….

      • silverfang16

        Wow, our avatars went so well with this. Heh.

        • xhunterko

          Oh, I see what you did there.

          • silverfang16

            It was not on purpose, it just happened to work.

  19. Ryufire

    Thank God for the FoodNetwork channel lol!!!

    • Final Silence

      Yes, it’s so true! I wonder if they’ll make a show for pet food. Or would that be Animal Planet?

  20. Serp

    i want mutton and flaggons of mead D:

  21. victorzorro

    cute peanut

  22. Xu-kitty

    Bu-but! But I like mutton and flagons of meade!

  23. ZV

    seriously peanut’s expressions in this comic & the previous have been some of the best I’ve ever seen

    really can tell rick is improving :)

  24. Your Obedient Serpent

    You do the best expressions.

  25. Clairvoyant Legacy

    Instant anything is a cheap, imitation of the actual thing.

    Why have instant noodles when you can actually eat the normal noodles? DOES NOT COMPUTE FOR ME

  26. kytan

    lol peanut has to live in the dark ages…. without a flashlight…

  27. T-Squared

    I have an instant computer! 8D (pours water on it)

    ©√¥ø†¶©√ç≈∞ƒ¶§ª

    DANG IT! >:c

    • Rocket Knight boy

      no no no see…your supposed to pour it on your router for INSTANT connection…

      ©√¥ø†¶©√ç≈∞ƒ¶§ª

      oh god…

      • Naylorfan90

        You to had me cracking up over here…

        *applauds*

      • Max Wolfe

        Did you try the monitor too?

        ©√¥ø†¶©√ç≈∞ƒ¶§ª

        …-FFFFFUUUUU

      • xhunterko

        Oh good grief! You guys got it wrong! Your supposed to use Steam instead!

    • BeatReaktor

      Mine is water cooled… lol :D

  28. dragonnutds

    being a dog, wouldn’t mutton sound delicious? let me check….
    yep, it is sheep meat,

    that also raises the question of how they get meat in this world O_o, there is some nightmare fuel for ya

  29. The Wolf Next Door

    I’m like that when i’m seeing something that’s just 1% different, but 3 times more expensive

  30. Naylorfan90

    Hm, I guess we know which side of the family Grape got HER attitude… :D

  31. Corodan

    “Moooom! They have instant tuna, now!”

    • Frank

      “Uh, how is it different from canned tuna?”

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It comes with a little package of crackers and squeeze-packs of relish and mayo.

        • Final Silence

          OMG, you’ve seen ‘em too? Its just like regular tuna, but with all the bonus crap and sometimes a mint!

  32. Radio Viewer

    Oh I’ll stay in the dark ages for mutton and mead.

  33. NexusWulf

    peanut has the knowhow somehow lol XD

  34. Jonesman64

    I’m surprised Peanut isn’t jumping all over the mutton idea >_>

    • WingedWolfGirl

      likely cuz he’s been eating it daily, …for years.

      • silverfang16

        The sandwich family eats mutton and mead?! I wanna go to their house!

  35. CalaverX11

    …especially in an MLT–mutton, lettuce and tomato–when the mutton is nice and juicy…

    LIAR! LIAAARRRR!!

  36. Oren Otter

    How many of us HAVE paid extra for a styrofoam bowl of dog food? I know I have.

    • Mukavich

      I had one of those ‘minute meals’ with beef tips, gravy and mashed potatoes. I’m reasonably sure that counts as dog food in a styrofoam bowl.

      • kytan

        Well Muka you already wear a dog’s collar so….

  37. FerreTrip

    This sounds like just about every mother I can think of at some point in their life. Or every father.

  38. sonic id furreh!!!

    fer sum reson peanuts face… it looks… off :?

    • Frank

      Uh… because we’ve never seen him whine like that before?

      • sonic id furreh!!!

        yah prbly :)
        hay frank were do u get ur avvies :? ?

      • Frank

        I make ‘em!

        Soon, I’ll have a complete little story with this little guy on my (little?) blog.

        Why? Do you want one?

        • sonic id furreh!!!

          srry no (srry if ai made u think ai did ;)
          but i was just wonder cuz well ai dunno they seem interesting

          • Frank

            Interesting you say?

          • xhunterko

            I too was wonder-…

            Wait, never mind, don’t get him started.

          • Rocket Knight boy

            you can’t go wrong with a mouse/rat character

          • Final Silence

            Now I want to see Spo again.

          • Argent Stonecutter

            I wanna see King and Spo together.

  39. Fuzzypaws

    The gravy is the key point that Mrs Sandwich is missing. Peanut clearly failed his Diplomacy check or he would have brought this point up!

    • Frank

      “I won’t eat any cereal that doesn’t turn the milk purple”

      • Final Silence

        Calvin and Hobbes references, gotta love ‘em.

  40. Hoheh

    *chuckles* Peanut probably saw a really good commercial.

    • Hoheh

      Commercials make everything look better.

      • Final Silence

        Then you go to the store/restaraunt, get it, and wonder “What the *%#@ is this?”

        • Frank

          I’ve actually gotten hamburgers that look like the ones in the photo

          • silverfang16

            That is a miracle. They never have the juicy patty or crisp lettuce for me!

          • Frank

            Hey, I never said how often I got them

          • silverfang16

            Once a year?

      • Clairvoyant Legacy

        Not, everything.

        • Hoheh

          o rly?

  41. Final Silence

    I’m surprised, every other place requires leashes, but this store doesn’t? I’m guessing this store is close or in Babylon Gardens.

    • Final Silence

      I got bored and to make up for it I made this!
      http://xat.com/Housepets
      I leave this open for all.

    • silverfang16

      Hmm…..maybe they take it off when no one is around? No idea.

  42. The derp

    If this was the equivalent of ramen, I would buy it anyway…

    • silverfang16

      But ramen is cheap. There’s a huge difference here, it also doesn’t make gravy.

      • Frank

        Haven’t you checked the bottom of the cup? “gravy sold separately”

        • silverfang16

          Kibble makes it’s own gravy though!

  43. Gaboris

    Should I be worried if I tend to have the same thoughts while buying stuff like that? (Instand goodies not dog food. :p) XD

    BTW is it just me or does Peanut look a bit off in the first panel? No prob with it I’m just not sure. :)

    • Naylorfan90

      Is it just me, or does his fur seem a bit…ungroomed?

      • Final Silence

        I’ll go with everyone elses guess and say winter coat. The fuller coat tends to be a bit harder to groom, but it is possible.

  44. Profesor Rod

    Puppy Peanut calling to mom to buy him something, he looks so adorable! |3

  45. WingedWolfGirl

    …Makes its own gravy!

    • Silent Kitsune

      Just fill to the line! :D

  46. Misharu

    This is like the noodle bowls I buy from the Japanese convenience store ^^;

  47. iHavezMyBirdo

    How does kibble work?

  48. HonorèDerazey

    Oddly enough, this represents a certain political conflict that’s going on today. Can’t get anymore deeper than that, it’s against the rules.

  49. silverfang16

    I wonder if all the pets have this problem……

  50. pet_panda

    haven’t seen peanut in so long that i feel like somethings different.

  51. Lance

    ahh, yes. just like a kid asking for the latest cereal fad. X3

    • xhunterko

      Do you, per chance, visit the forums any?

  52. Kiduke

    I don’t really understand the “to make the gravy” part. Is it normal to serve kibble with gravy in this world?

  53. J.J.

    But MOMMMM…. What about the toy!? The TOYYYYYY!!

    Mom: “You’ve got enough toy’s dear. What about that rawhide bone of yours?”

    But… it’s …. sorta… chewed up… (walks away pouting)

  54. Ki

    If you would believe it, one of my doctors is named Dr. Sandwich. He works with another doctor named Dr. Katz, and another doctor named Dr. Laura Bush. I find all of their names interesting. XD

  55. Raxki Yamato

    this have to be of all times i see Peanut So very cartoonish X3

  56. BanditRingtail

    I don’t know if I’d like mutton or mead, but I’d be willing to try it!
