DailyDirt: USA! U! S! A!

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Who says America doesn't make anything anymore? The US has created some incredible food combinations. For instance, there's the classic Daily Show example of Jimmy Dean's Pancakes & Sausage on a stick. Here are just a few more examples of that kind of "awesomeness" for your entertainment. By the way, StumbleUpon can also recommend some good Techdirt articles, too.

    "FYI, Arch West (RIP) created Doritos, inspired by a similar snack he found in San Diego."

    So he was a freetard pirate?

    Re:

    Heh. Now that reminds me that the patent for Pringles has expired -- so maybe it's time to create a taco shell out of a giant Pringle... :P

    Doritos are not new, if I remember correctly Mexican indians have been eating that for centuries.

    Fun fact about Doritos, if you burn it, it will melt like plastic, those Tortillas are a kind of vegetal plastic.

    Don't say you can't eat plastic.

    Re: Re:

    Strange that you mention Pringles, because when I read the story for the Candwich and how it left a weird aftertaste in your mouth, the first thing I thought of was Pringles.

    All the ads for Pringles focus on how neatly they're stacked, how they have less grease, how the can can be re-sealed. They never mention the fact that they have a weird taste that doesn't really taste like potato chips at all.

    Re: "when I read the story for the Candwich and how it left a weird aftertaste in your mouth"

    Funny... I got that too.... But I followed it all the way through to the Candwich's "product" page, and at the bottom under the heading "Coming Soon New Flavours!" there's Barbecue Chicken as the second of two dot points....This actually made me gag.
