“I beleive there’s a craft to cooking, I don’t think it’s just shopping…you go to a restaurant and you see a chef’s who is 27 years-old and they’re cooking their heart out.” —Mitchell Davis on Snacky Tunes
“We want ‘new, new, new’ [music] – but we can’t break away from our nostalgia.” — John Norris on Snacky Tunes
