When I Come Around

Lay's Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Flavored Duet. I'm not sure if you can still purchase them, but you could in the States this past spring. I finally cracked them a couple weeks ago. First whiff, fake bacon flavoured chips. Initial taste, cream cheese with a hint of "bacon" (you know, that sort of unsettling bacon flavour seasoning). The jalap flavour is a little uneven throughout the bag ranging from a mild to medium mild heat. Not your typical jalapeno flavour but..I don't know, they're almost a smokey? heat.

Willards (limited edition) Crinkle Cut (since 1977) Bunny Chow flavoured potato chips: Light curry with a side of white bread. No bunny.

So Waka Waka DID have a South African band contribute to the song, and I'm far from the first person to gripe about this but..a Colombian singer. Seriously? SMDH. That's like getting Danny Elfman to write a Hock
