Now it would seem like that was plenty of impulse buying for a person who claims to not usually give in to such things, but I wasn't done yet. One the way back out, I passed by a stand with DVDs and CDs. Now I've had a DVD player for 3 or 4 years, and only have like three movies at home. I stopped to see if there were any I might be interested in, and ended up picking up the Ron Howard Spotlight Series, with A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, Cinderella Man, and Backdraft. I've seen and enjoyed all of these but Cinderella Man, and I've wanted to see it because I love the sport of boxing, and sappy movies aren't bad either. So I ended up buying it, too.
So in the impulsive mood I was in, I cracked open the bag of potato chips and tried one to see if they tasted like a juicy burger just off of the grill. Holy shit, they tasted just like the crap on a McDonalds cheeseburger if they don't remember to give me a plain burger. It was the exact taste of what I associate with McDonalds' mustard, pickle and onions. Apparently, that is what they are going for:
This flavor from Larry the Cable Guy looked like ordinary potato chips, as there wasn't any seasoning powder on the surfaces, a sharp contrast to the Buffalo Wing flavor, which was overloaded with powder. The lack of powder didn't seem to matter as far as taste, as I crunched in to find that there was a decent crispness and just the slightest crunch, but lots of tasty flavor. It didn't really taste like an actual cheeseburger, with nothing resembling beef, but it did taste precisely like the mix of condiments on your typical fast-food cheeseburger (i.e. McDonald's), with pickles, mustard and cheese dominating. A very good taste.Well, to me, they taste like a fucked up order at McDonald's. I can't imagine that there are people who consider that the taste of a cheeseburger. It was a quick and brutal reminder that I should know better than to give in to buying something that almost certainly sucks. Lesson learned. Looks like I'll find out if cows will eat 99% of a bag of Larry the Cable Guy Cheese Burger Tater Chips.
