Frito-Lay Sucks

I've been mad at Doritos for years, after they stopped making the delicious Sour Cream and Onion Doritos. I briefly got over it when they came out with Cool Ranch Doritos, which were just as good. Until they stopped actually putting any cool ranch flavor on the chips. I can't remember the last time I ate any Cool Ranch Doritos that tasted any different than unflavored tortilla chips. They also stopped making the 3D Doritos, which were great, and inexplicably seemed not to have much more flavor on them than their two dimensional counterparts, but somehow tasted like they did. So I've managed to just stay away from Doritos, so I don't have to be annoyed with them. That is, until the other day, when I was hungry and saw new Spicy Sweet Chili Doritos in the vending machine. These were very good, but when I went to get more yesterday, they were gone. So I figured I would just pick some up from the grocery store. But I've since been to three different stores and couldn't find them. Having a product that people want doesn't seem very valuable if it isn't available anywhere. So I'm now back to being annoyed with Doritos.

Also, I went to doritos.com to see if maybe this was a limited time flavor or something, and it looks like they're trying to turn it into some sort of hip social networking site or something. I couldn't see anywhere to get actual information about their products. I don't who's running the Doritos department at Frito-Lay, but I don't think they're very bright.

And speaking of good snacks that I can't find anywhere, someone brought in some great Crispy Mint M&Ms to work, but I looked for those everywhere too and can't find them either.

And just because I'm too lazy to make another post, let me just use this space to tell Arlen Specter to shut the fuck up. No one gives a shit what you think about the NFL, and it's not any of your business anyway. And even if it was, you've got far more important things that you could be spending your time and energy on.

If you tell the manager at Publix what you want, they will usually order it for you.

I don't shop at Publix. Do I look like I'm made of money or something?

John Howard said...

They pass the price of those clean floors right along to the customer.

We truly do our best to avoid the store that shall not be named. Honestly, Publix isn't that bad. Our staples are generally about the same. There's just no real generics. We're also becoming more conscious of what we buy. Because we're trying to avoid high fructose corn syrup, we've really changed our buying habits.

John Howard said...

I buy generic stuff for just about everything that they have generic stuff for. And Wal-Mart's generic stuff is not only much cheaper than Publix's, it's usually much better also.

I just went to doritos.com. That's quite a busy site. I hate it when I go to some site to get information etc.. and immediately some huge flash thing starts loading with a progress meter.

Right on......Arlen Specter is a fool. Does he really need to be wasting our tax dollars on this crap?

Patrick said...

We need to know the truth about spygate.

Nevermind what Roger Goodell said, he's only the commissioner. And he obviously has something to hide, since he destroyed all the evidence that the Patriots turned over.

And that Walsh idiot? What does he know? He's only the central figure in the whole damn thing.

My fellow Americans, we deserve to know just what the Patriots did. Not just for the sake of football being enjoyable again, but to stop terrorism.

So I support Arlen Spector and his idiotic search for the truth that is already been released in a statement from the NFL.

John Howard said...

Now that I think about it, that's a really good point. We can't let the Patriots get away with cheating in a post 09/11 world. They won their first Superbowl after the 2001 season. Coincidence?
