Oy Vey Lay’s

At around Thanksgiving time I became aware that Pringles had released some “holiday” flavors. Specifically Pumpkin Pie (UGH) and White Chocolate Peppermint. And I thought that the latter might not suck because I like chocolate covered pretzels. Except I had a white chocolate peppermint Pringle and eeeeeew. Because it’s not a white chocolate dipped chip. It’s a Pringle with that weird flavor sprinkling on it and it’s just weird and gross.

Pringles, however, have been outdone with Lay’s latest offering in China: the Pepsi-Chicken Flavored Lay’s Potato Chip. Yes, you read that right – it’s the flavor of Pepsi AND the flavor of chicken. On a potato chip.

Pepsi-Chicken Chips

From the article:

Lay’s launches a new flavor every year and Pepsi Chicken appeared to be its biggest one in China so far.

Adage described the flavor as, “Similar to barbecue with a sugary aftertaste.” They also said there’s very little Pepsi taste other than a hint of fizzed out soda. Sounds like Pepsi to me! #TeamCoke.

I mean, I guess I drink soda when I’m eating some BBQ but… bad idea bear.

I will confess, I’m a fan of Lay’s Dill Pickle Chips. Anyone else?

LOST Lives On

A bunch of LOST fans hit the jackpot on the lottery this week by playing the infamous “LOST numbers.” Here’s the story:

Fans of “Lost” who played the famous lottery numbers from the hit series didn’t score huge bucks in Tuesday’s Mega Million jackpot, but 26,000 did take home $150 each, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Four of the six numbers selected in real $355 million lottery on Tuesday matched those picked by the character Hugo “Hurley” Reyes from “Lost” who won a $114 million fictional jackpot.

Tuesday’s winning Mega Millions numbers: 4, 8, 15, 25, 47 and 42

Hurley’s winning numbers: 4, 8, 15, 16, 23 and 42.

As for the big prize Tuesday, two winning tickets were sold, one in Idaho and one in Washington state. The as-yet-unidentified winners each earned $177.5 million.

And the actor who played Hurley on the show, Jorge Garcia, had this to say about the winning numbers on his blog today. You need to click the link because there’s a picture and it made me giggle.

Birds and fish dying all over the place, the LOST numbers starting to come up in the Lotto. If a smoke monster pops up somewhere, I’m outta here.

My New Obsession

An old pal, Ryan, turned me on to a new website yesterday that I am now obsessed with. Most Awesomest Things Ever. It takes two awesome things and you get to vote on which is awesomer. Even better, you can submit your own entries. I have added the following for consideration: 80s music, The Karate Kid, Betty White, Bea Arthur, Mr. T, Voltron, and salisbury steak (don’t ask). It seriously makes me giggle.

If you’re not so sure about Betty White, just watch the end of this video (though the whole thing is geeky funny) and you will understand why I agree that Betty White rules.

Go play! Happy Friday!
