[I am not going to go through and edit everything because this is amusing: If you look at the comments section you will see that Thomas is a much better reader than I am. In fact, this snack is called SNAPea Crisps, not SNACKpea Crisps. Way to read, Elysse. Keep up the good work.] [I have “snacks” on the brain.]
This morning co-worker John made a special request that I choose Snackpea Crisps as the Snack of the Afternoon. I had never even noticed them on the shelf before, but just for John I snacked on them this very afternoon.
Snackpea Crisps are basically Cheetos with a slight pea flavoring. John insisted that they were really peas (the main ingredient is peas), but I think that they’re some kind of deep-fried (okay, baked– apparently) pea-mash. This snack is masquerading as a healthy food, but I am very skeptical.
At any rate, the fake-pea chips were pretty tasty. (I think it helps if you like peas. I really like peas.) I don’t want to get addicted… but I think it might be too late. (Keep a water bottle on hand– salty.)
(Also… is Snackpea some sort of play on snap peas? It must be. Right?)
In other news, it’s 9/9/09. That’s cool, but I’m kind of freaked because I remember 9/9/99 as if it were… not a whole decade ago! (I feel so old!) Some MTV awards show aired that day, and all of the commercials for it said, “Nine nine, ninety-nine,” in a British male voice. Remember that? Am I the only one?
