West Coast Snack Chips
I'm in Los Angeles and I'm hungry. Today is Yom Kippur, a/k/a the fasting holiday. I can't eat until 6:51 PM (I looked it up- trust me). So last night I grabbed my last set of snacks at a local 7-11 and I was reminded of what I have noticed for several years- LA has a better snack chip selection than where I'm from.
There are flavors available in LA and I think in California in general that we just don't have in the mid-west and the east coast. A lot of these varieties are influenced by Mexican culture and taste- Chili Lime Flamin' Hot Cheetos, Salsa Verde Doritos, Limon Frito Lay potato chips, Jalapeno chips, etc. These chips are wonderful if you like spice and tangy flavors which I do. Especially when I can't eat all day. This isn't fun.
