of chip bags.
A friend, who will remain nameless, gave this to us just for fun. While that may not seem like such a big deal to you, it is a huge deal for us! Huge. You see we cannot purchase this in Turkey. Oh we can get Ruffles, plain Lays, and Nacho Cheese Doritos in pretty much any store we go in. We can get Pringles BBQ and something very similar to sour cream and onion chips. We can get a spicy version of Doritos as well. So if we can get similar items why is this bag of chips so amazing?
Reason Number 1 - We can't get these here. Do you know how much I love Crunchy Cheetos? I love Crunchy Cheetos as much as Santa loves Christmas. You don't realize how much you miss something until you cannot have it. I have claimed one bag for my very own. I would claim them all, but I think my children might stage a revolt if I do.
Reason Number 2 - We also can't get these. The are the ORIGINAL you know. And they are yummy. We can't get bean dip either, but I can make me some of that. I can also add some chili and make that junior high cafeteria favorite...Frito Pie. Now my mouth is watering!
You might be wondering how our friend came across the mother lode of chip bags if we can't get these here. Well that friend happens to be able to shop at the commissary on the joint forces military base here in town. That friend was thinking about us while she was shopping. That friend bought us a present just for fun. We love our friends.
Side note - my children always make sure to invite friends with base privileges to their birthday parties. That way they get things like cases of Dr. Pepper, large bottles of Pace Picante Sauce, and Reeses Peanut Butter Cups for birthday presents. I am raising those kids up right! They would rather have food over some lousy toys for a present any ol' day!
