A couple months ago when one could still cross the border I was lucky enough to have someone pick up a bag of 'merican chips for me (thanks Tyler), Doritos Flamin' Hot Limon to be exact (are all bags of Doritos in the states big? it's 276.4g [I question their precision, but good on 'em for being that specific]).
