(I took this picture while walking out of a Tesco Express. Classy)
First of all, I must apologize for being derelict in my junkfood duties. I’ve been eating junk food, as I am wont to do, but I haven’t haven’t posted my reviews. My first post-hiatus review is for another meat-flavored snack. My first impression of McCoy’s Flame Grilled Steak chips was “beef flavored ramen noodles.” I happen to like beef-flavored ramen noodles, so this wasn’t huge a con. However, I’m not totally sold on chips coated in that flavor. One thing about these chips that amused me is that it’s there’s a “supersize” alternative which features more ridges. I do find the ridges on these chips strangely appealing, as if my mouth recognizes and appreciates their structural integrity. I don’t know if I’d really derive more pleasure from beef-flavored chips with even bigger ridges. At that point, I think I’d just eat actual meat. On a related note, I was thinking of bringing jerky to work as a snack, but then I wondered if people would think I was some sort of paleo lumberjack (not that there’s anything WRONG with that!). I assume they sell jerky here- it’s probably in the smoked fish area. I definitely can’t bring smoked fish to work as a snack because I don’t want to be banish’d. That would be a one-way ticket to office pariah. Maybe there’s a smoked-fish flavored chip. I would not be surprised.
In other news, my keyboard greasiness level is out of control. I need to stop writing and eating at the same time.
