WHAT THE HELL

Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Food travesty #374

This is precisely what’s wrong with our culture. Just because a few f’wads in a focus group say a product is “cool to awesome” doesn’t mean you should impose that product on the other three hundred million of us.

It’s not just food either. Explain me “Two Broke Girls.”

    I’m going to use these crisps as evidence that the world has run out of ideas!

      Yes. Now it’s just plain destructive! (And thanks for commenting too…)

    Lays has a chip called cappuccino…really coffee and chips? Disgusting, and I love coffee. Sales must be down…they’re reaching.

      Truly gross. Reminds me of that awful beer/bloody Mary thing I found last year… Gag!

    Not gonna lie, I’d try these… I love me some Roscoe’s chicken and waffles.

    Weren’t these part of the voting campaign for a new flavor? Thought this lost to the Cappuchino one.

      I don’t know. I was just repelled by the very idea.

      Thank God it lost!

    This is so over the top I can’t even comment. Chips are junk food. They don’t have to taste like it as well

    Just. Plain. Weird.

      Worse than Pecan Pie Pringles and Wheat Thins Lime.

        “Classic” Pringles is disgusting enough 😉

    As someone who will make a specific trip into NYC just for authentic chicken and waffles, I look upon that Lay’s foodstuff offering with all the disdain, condescension, and elitism I can possibly muster from within this chest-cold addled bacteria bag of a body I’ve been dragging around all week.

      Hey, you just gave me a great idea. Lays Chest-cold Addled Bacteria flavor!

        They could probably just relabel the item you already showed us.

    I remember a day when the only choice was plain M & Ms or Peanut. Now there are mint M & Ms, pretzel M & Ms, coconut M & Ms, peanut butter M & Ms, and probably others I’ve forgotten or don’t even know about. It’s the same way with virtually every type of food these days. It’s no longer good enough to have a couple of options. We must fill the grocery store shelves with every single possibility mankind can come up with. We must stock our own kitchen shelves with all of those options because you never know when you might have a carving for a coconut-chocolate-mint flavored potato chip.

      I really don’t get it. You’d think the market for some of this crap is so small that the companies must be losing money on them. Or maybe it’s all just one big social experiment to see what people will shove in their pie holes…

        If you saw the volume of snack crap in my house, you’d get it. I live with three people who are the perfect consumers for all of this stuff. I’m disgusted every time I walk into my kitchen.
