Hot and Spicy Squid Lay’s- Who Knew?
Who knew, right? Seriously, who knew you could feast on this disgusting artificially-flavored garbage? I guess it would work if you liked seafood, but I hate it. Does this makes me wildly unpopular to 80% of the world’s population? Probably, but the smells around me in South East Asia are challenging me to no end. All of those booths with sun-seared shrimp, lobster, squid, octopus, oysters, and other strong-smelling slimies. So, Lay’s Potato Chips has Asian varieties. Too cool. Watch this two minute grocery store discovery game. Guess what this flavor is?
So, yes, I’ve been challenged by the deep fried guess-what’s-on-your-plate Thai Roulette. Too much heat outside, too many strong smells, and way too much oil. I’ve written about my first day melting in the heat with a chili hot pepper stuffed in my mouth, Grandfathers, Teens, and Sex, our first Pad Thai, and will write more about discovering a totally new world unbeknownst to me until now.
Ever had every (but I mean every) imaginable street odor smack you in the nostrils at the same time? Ever been wildly fascinated and curious about a new culture’s delicatessens but found yourself unable to consume most of it? Ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight? Ever walked the streets of Bangkok naked? (Just asking. I’ll tell you when I do)
Write to me, burp at me, tell me I’m stupid, tell me this is seafood heaven and I’m severely close-minded. Let’s talk and laugh and throw melting street food at each other. I’ll take pictures. Be with us at Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, and on this blog.
