A Little Misunderstanding

It was a simple misunderstanding.

I went to Big Lots because you never know what you are going to find. And after my day spent dealing with bankers, I needed an adventure. Even if it were just of the discount, close-out retail variety.

The end cap held all sorts of interesting potato chips. The Chesapeake Bay & Beef ones caught my attention. Meat flavored potato chips? I was willing to invest $0.75 in the experiment.

Anticipation got the best of me, so I ripped open the bag as soon as I got in the car. Well, I tried to. Take it from me, those Terra Chip bags are really hard to get into!

The Chesapeake Bay seasoning was clear, but I had a hard time finding the beef flavor.  I couldn’t find it at all. Until I looked at the bag again and discovered my little misunderstanding.

They were actually Chesapeake Bay & Beer chips. One little letter. That is all I had changed, yet it made a huge difference. Sometimes it doesn’t take much to get us off track.

They weren’t what I was expecting, but I enjoyed my chips. There’s just one other thing. If anyone ever finds beef flavored chips, buy some for me. Now that my curiosity is up, I just have to try some.

    So did the beer chips taste like beer? Inquiring minds want to know.

    David – I’m not a beer drinker, so honestly, I don’t know if they tasted like beer or not. They didn’t taste like beer smells.
