This afternoon after lunch I ambled over to our admin's office in search of a small snack. I opted for some m&m's brand chocolate candies with peanuts. As I ate the 7 m&m's that were in the package, I noticed that the package was labelled "Fun Size".

Others may disagree, but personally, I don't think that 7 m&m's produce an experience I would label 'merry' or even 'jocular', much less "fun", but I'm willing not to quibble on that point, especially when a far more important issue looms.

What do you call the larger sized packages? What word do you use for something that is more fun than fun?

There really is no English word that works. You have to move to more philosophical descriptions. The one that first springs to mind is "transcendent", which has all the right connotations, but unfortunately lacks the popularity of "tantric" (as demonstrated by the relative sales ranks of the top books with each title on Amazon).

So, "Tantric snacking" it is...

If you don't like this kind of entry, you may comfort yourself that at least I'm not writing about my sump pump...
