    If you have a food day potluck thing at work or school or wherever, what do you bring and/or hope others bring?

    Pickle wraps or pickle wrap dip here.

    A bag of cool ranch doritos. I hope that no one opens them so I can take them home.

    Milky Way salad. 3 milkly way candy bars, 1 green apple, vanilla pudding, cool whip. Add some milk and stir all together. A salad that is way better then most desserts.

    I usually sign up for dessert. :) One thing that my husband has had me make for his work potlucks is a fruit "fluff" (canned fruit, cool whip, marshmallows, sweetened condensed milk). We were recently at a church potluck after 1st Communion and there was a dish that looked just like the fluff I make. Everyone in the family took some, took one bite and then realized it had been poisoned with coconut. :realmad: Totally inedible. Except to the 11yr old who has a love affair with coconut.

    I make that with Snickers, I've never heard of it with Milky Way!

    It's really good to eat with animal crackers or Nilla wafers.

    Sort of related question - why do old people put Cool Whip and carrots on top of jello salad for potlucks? How did that become a thing, and does anyone eat it?

    Corn casserole if it's a "bring real food" type of thing, deviled eggs in the summertime

    For treat days, it's bag of peanut m&m's if I'm lazy and taco dip or fruit pizza/some kind of fruit with a dip if I'm not.

    Yeah Snickers is the way to go with this. I would also want to see cheesy potatoes for a side and the main dish would involve BBQ sauce in some fashion.
