FrancoFile: Aaaand in linking back from BoingBoing to the actual article, it's English crisps=American chips.  The English put all sort of god-awful flavor combinations in those.  So probably they are beef-flavored, regardless of what they were cooked in.


Beef flavor is "god-awful", but the thought of something cooked in beef tallow doesn't scare the tastebuds off your tongue?

My brother (when he was 10 and disgustingly skinny) once got his elbow stuck in a Pringles can.  Still can't figure out how he did it.

ReapTheChaos: I guess if you're one of those full fisted eaters this may be a problem, I usually just use a finger and thumb to pull one or two out at a time.

brap: Can't they just train giant birds to eat the chips and regurgitate them down our fat gullets?  Snacking is too much work.


Hmm, I sense a niche market.  PCC - Pre chewed chips!  Also, pre-blended Lucky Charms and whole milk in a conveniently shaped plastic funnel.  Just cram it down your throat, and pull the the ripcord!

Ishkur: How many chips do you have to eat at once, you fat slob? Has it occurred to you to just tip the bag over and pour a couple into your other hand and eat them gingerly? No, you gotta reach inside the whole god damn bag, grab all the greasy deep fried salted sliced spuds and shove them down your cavernous gullet, you gluttonous boar.

/oblig Onion


Tip it over? Sounds messy.

Pour into a serving container though...

I'm not fat and I have that issue with those little bags. I just shake the chips into my hand though. Kind of hard to do while driving.

Artificial anything flavor is generally god-awful.

But what do you have about using animal fats for cooking?  If you put a hamburger patty in a skillet, you are frying it in its own fat.  You do know that, right?  Or do you not know what 'tallow' is?

I remember in the 1990s Mountain Dew was available in widemouth cans for people who couldn't bear to take 15 seconds to drain a can.


They were just being EXTREME as required by the People Ought to Show Extreme Radicalness Act of 1992.

Fano: Why does the bag have "beef?" Isn't this a bag for fries, aka what limeys call "chips"?


Nope, I think that is what the British would call a "flavour" of potato crisps.

/ And I thought we Americans had some strange flavors of chips!

I know what tallow is - it's used in suet...but I don't fry meat.  If I can't put it on a bbq, then it's not meant to be eaten.

Unless peameal bacon once a month counts.

Palming medicine balls. Covering more than an octave on the piano. Cracking walnuts with one hand. Cracking two eggs with one hand. I got a chance to fire a Walther PPK and couldn't pull the slide back without realizing I'd be a world of hurt if I shot it. I pay a guy with small hands to change the headlights on my Silverado because it's obvious they designed the things to be changed by lemurs. I actually bought a Canon 60D because it fit my hand better than the smaller T4i. I should hire them out to firms that want to make their products look smaller than they actually are.

Oh, and I hate Apple's chiclet keyboards in their macbooks. I like my keyboards wide open like the great plains.

2013-09-19 05:46:49 PM
So it's a bag that opens in the middle so you can discard the useless air filled advertising bit at the top and use the bottom as a bowl. That makes perfect sense for a single serving bag.
 
2013-09-19 05:51:01 PM
The Pringles tube is what helps me portion control.  I can easily count the number of chips and I never go over the serving size of 16 chips per day.  And there are many days when I have fewer or none at all.  My hand doesn't fit in the can that's why you gently pour it.

Yes, but I think the article is saying that even doing so, if you have to cram your whole hand into the bag your hand gets greasy from the bag's insides.

Unless you view chip-eating as a game of "Operation".

1. Open crisp packet normally.
2. Place packet face down on a table.
3. Peel apart the sides at the back seam and open the bottom.

Hey presto, a flat surface with your crisps in an easy to reach location in the centre, no bowl or plate needed.

Pocket Ninja: Pringles Dueling:

1) Take two Pringles cans. Either dump them out or eat all the Pringles. Whichever way is fine; you just need the cans to be empty.

2) Have a friend do the same with his own two Pringles cans.

3) With cans in hand, kneel, facing your partner. Set both cans on the ground. Raise both arms over your head (touchdown style) and with your fingers extended and your thumbs folded into your palms.

4) Together, slide your right hand into the first can (wrist deep).

5) Repeat with left hand.

6) Spread your fingers as much as necessary to ensure that both cans remain in place.

7) Speak to your partner: "For honor." Stand.

8) Battle until the cans are destroyed or one of you surrenders.

I've, uh, read about that.


My friends and I used to do something like that. Our version added Crisco, a Twister board and, for the ladies, a couple of those rabbit vibrators.

Sure, we were banned from that public library, but it was worth it.

Probably cooked in beef tallow.

Yuck.  Such a thing exists?  And people eat it?  On purpose?

McDonalds fries used to be a combination of beef tallow and vegetable oil.

Have you never done home fries in bacon grease?


They used to taste delicious.

Whoever made that photo collage deserve the Congressional Medal of Honor. That makes it so civilized!

By the way, y'all: I've had those beef crisps before. They're like blood: vile on paper, atavistically delicious in your mouth. Your body only needs a few because they provide such a high dose of umami, salt, grease, cholesterol, and the strange sesnation that you just feasted on an elk you killed with your bare hands.

So am I the only genius that figured out that single-serve snack bags can be opened along the side as well as the top?

WTF.

Grab Doritos bag.  Using your teeth, put a slight tear in the top of the bag about an inch from the edge of the seam.

Pull the corner carefully down to the bottom seam.

Enjoy.

Don't forget:
Cholesterol
Clogged arteries
Congestive heart failure
Colon cancer

Seafood can be cooked on a bbq. Except lobster, which is steamed, cooled and cracked open with bare hands. Yum!

I did a turkey on the rotisserie once - best turkey I ever had. Though it was a learning experience to discover I should have tied the legs beforehand. Oops.

I was obsessed with my rotisserie - if I could skewer it, it went on the bbq.

Leg of lamb
Pork loin
Chicken
Duck / goose

Pretty common everywhere in the world to fry in beef tallow (or "lard" as we call it 'round these here parts).  Outback Steakhouse fries its food in it.

Big hand bags are fine...I guess. I'm waiting for the "whole face" bag that would allow me to place the bag on my head and lick all the residual spices off the interior walls without suffocating. Another nice-to-have would be a tiny LED light inside, so I can see what I'm going after.
