In this country with a zillion flavor choices for everything, why are there so few chip/crisp flavors? Even Salt and Vinegar is pretty daring.

I miss Worcester Sauce crisps sometimes.

Who needs unsweetened vanilla-hazelnut almond milk creamer anyway?

Monster, try looking at Big Lots stores (there's one in your town, and one closer to Ypsilanti). They buy store leftovers/overstock, and sell it cheap.

There is usually a pretty good selection of odd/different potato chip flavors. Quality/freshness is a crap shoot though, to be honest.

Weird potato-chip flavors are un-American.

Grav, thanks, I am familiar with Big Lots. I once got cheap Weetabix there but generally the food section in this one is pretty crap. I can have MIL bring what I miss, it just struck me as odd when there are so many flavors of every other product including a plethora that shouldn't come in any flavor other than "original"....

I was telling my kids about those. Do they still sell them?

Don't think so :P Don't think they made it out of the 80s.

What made me think of it is that Lays (~=Walkers) have a "suggest a flavor" competition every now and then, currently on the back of the packets. But they only have four regular flavors :/

My Person of Interest addiction has gone full blown - I watched 4 episodes last night. They're just too easy to binge on at 43 mins an ep.

halfway through season 2.

I kinda like "Person of Interest". I call it 'The Man In The Suit'.

I'm completely addicted. I love the team - especially the two leads. I mayhave fallen just a leetle bit in love with Finch.

It has a good vibe. Kind of old fashioned in some ways - reminds me a bit of Quantum Leap. But with the addition of ongoing story arcs and deep political cynicism.

I like how it deals with one of society's current top fears: gov't surveillance.

Yeah. The one that always gets me is when someone hacks a car - the idea that someone could take remote control of your vehicle is terrifying.

I like the mix of drama and humour. I always like shows that have a team dynamic - like Stargate, or Spooks. The buddy feel to it really works.
