you're not putting that in my mouth

I saw these in the vending machine at work yesterday.

Am I the only one that thinks this is perhaps one of the most repulsive snack options ever created? Who eats these things?

That looks nasty! just the thought makes me feel a little sick.

JQ said...

Those do look gross. Although I would probably eat Mayo and Fries flavored potato snacks.

Brandy said...

That just sounds disgusting. Eeeeewwwwwwww.

Lynda said...

Yeah, I don't think that will be a best seller.

nobody—When I was discussing them with a student my face could not stop from having that look of utter disgust on it.

jq—No. It's like those nasty sour cream and onion chips you eat.

brandy—My sentiments exactly.

lynda—Me either. A student of mine (who was coaxed into trying them) said they really do taste like ketchup and fries.

Hillary said...

That is truly repulsive.

RR said...

I've had these! (I know you're shocked.) They're not bad, but I wouldn't crave them.

Silicone Alley said...

If you are going to eat something that is fry and ketchup flavored, why not eat fries & ketchup?

❉ pixie ❉ said...

hillary—That seems to be the consensus.

rr—I'm so disappointed.

silicone alley—Precisely.

Blogarita said...

Yuck. I won't even dip a real fry in ketchp. But I agree with JQ on the mayo and fries idea.

blogarita—Really? Mayo and fry chips? I like to dip my fries in mayo but I don't want a snack chip that tastes like it.

Tim said...

gross. But if it were McDonald's it would be a different story.

Ya know what I love? When bloggers say what I am thinking! We have those in the vending machine at work too and I have had that same conversation with different people. WTF?!

Vegas Princess said...

What the...? What completely inane marketing person came up with that incredibly ridiculous idea? One more reason to stay away from the vending machine.

❉ pixie ❉ said...

tim—I still think I'll pass.

naynay—I don't even like ketchup that much. I certainly don't want a chip that tastes like it.

vp—Can you imagine the meeting to come up with this? I would not want to be a part of that creative team.

:0

Ew.

Oh, and it's all your fault I've been diping my fries in mayo for a year now.

❉ pixie ❉ said...

shades—Really, the mayo? Well, your welcome for that. ;)

RR said...

If only fries and ketchup were Item D-12 in the vending machine instead...

Nobody™ said...

I like fries with ranch dressing. I hate sour cream and onion chips.

AnObiter said...

Oh, that's just disgusting!

❉ pixie ❉ said...

rr—I'd be too worried that they would get stuck on the coil that holds all the snacks.

nobody—I'm not really crazy about any flavored chip.

anobiter—Well said!

Dawn B said...

It says "have it your way" but uhh..no thank ya.

Kristi said...

Very interesting...I almost want to try one just to see what they taste like.

❉ pixie ❉ said...

dawn—My way is not this way.

kristi—My students were going to force me to try them. Lucky me nobody had the change.
