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.

Haha, that rocks. My favorite Pringles flavor was Salsa Verde, but they only had it out for a short while, but they rocked.

Plus you have Cactus Cooler. Which isn't available anywhere but SoCal. Which is inconvenient since I live in NorCal.

dear Mr Rosenberg, there is a life beyond chips ! Why don't you check out an awesome band called It Starts Today on MySpace music. You will like it like you like chips. If not, slap me.
