Every year for Lent, I give up my most favorite thing in the world: potato chips.  I know, I am my own hero.  Jesus MUST love me for this selfless act.

This year, @angrycelery sent me this:

I love it.  And for real, if any of my friends give up chips permanently, we’re totally over.

Yesterday I was reminded of something from my childhood that I miss very, very much.  Well, I didn’t really need to be reminded because I think of them often.  They are:

President’s Choice Ruffled Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips

They were THE BEST.  They came in a yellow and white bag and they were so heavily seasoned that they caused your eyes and mouth to water as soon as you opened the bag.  My mouth is watering right now.  I think they may have even made your tongue bleed if you ate too many.  Sometimes we ate them with french onion dip and it killed the burn. Not the homemade kind, I didn’t know about it then.  Which is really too bad, because it would have been, um, amazing.

Something happened and they stopped making them.  I don’t know WHY because between my friends and I (specifically @littlebreezer), we easily made it worth their while to continue production.  We were known to walk down to Valu-Mart and buy a large bag each and then sit and watch a movie and eat them.  We were known to do this daily.  I was known to be slightly overweight.

We weren’t the only fans – my male equivalent B-Rad remembers and loved them too.  We speak of them often.

Dear Galen Weston,

Please bring them back.
