I indulge in a big cup of Milo (and usually a heaped teaspoon full of milo too) in all but summer - in summer it doesn't happen as I drink heaps of water.
Sometimes I go the odd packet of chips - I am not good but I will not worry about it as long as my weight stays between 70 & 80 kg. If I do go above 80kg I just force myself to stay above 30km/h on the shared path all the time on the way home and watch the snacks I eat. Presto 3 weeks later I am back where I should be - keep going one more week because fast is fun and then usually stuff up again.
It also only seems to happen this time of the year.
Not fast, no style, but still get there.

If you can't explain it simply, then you don't understand it well enough.
I used to do this, eat the little snack size ones in the afternoon, until I started taking more notice of the Nutritional section on the back.
Most I find are at least 30% fat so I now avoid them completely
I ride home at ~ 3:30pm. This sort of helps me avoid the afternoon munchies. I drink some water before and during the ride and I have a small handful of nuts when I get home. We always have dinner around 6pm. I find I get the munchies worse when I don't ride and chips are my enemy.
If I am home then ice cream always enters my mind with strawberry topping (yummmmmmm).... but luckily I am working most of the time and have a lovely variety of fruit
