This product reviewing business is hard work. Every once in a while, a guy wants to get a break from it all. Take a load off. Have a snack.
As a red-blooded, clog-veined American, my snack of choice is potato chips. What better way to relax and refresh than sitting down with a brand new ‘family size’ bag of chips, and not getting up until your hands are shiny up to the elbows with grease and you’ve licked every last crumb of spud from the bottom of the bag?
I can’t think of one. Unless you’ve got twin Swedish masseuses and a wheelbarrow full of butterscotch pudding handy. And who can afford butterscotch in this economy?
Nope, potato chips are definitely the way to go. So when I felt a bit peckish this afternoon, that’s what I went for. Only it’s not that simple. Once a reviewer, always a reviewer — just when I thought I was snacking, they dragged me back in.
So read on for my potato chip chatter — and my actual posts on the companies’ Facebook walls. But be careful. Once you pop, you won’t stop. Betcha can’t read just one.
