On the twelfth day of Christmas….
….my true love gave to me…
…twelve bags of storm chips.
Haven’t heard of storm chips?
Well, in the advent of a storm here in the maritimes, the busiest aisle in the supermarket is the chip aisle. A CBC host, in the act of storm-prepping, once tweeted “Success!#stormchips”and it caught on like wildfire. One enterprising chip company latched on to the idea and created their own brand of storm chips: a combination of dill pickle, ketchup, salt and vinegar, and barbecue flavours. Haven’t tried them myself but they sell them by the pallet at Costco if you’re looking.
If Steve could roll his eyes he would but he just keeps on reading, relieved to have arrived at the twelfth day of Christmas and that he doesn’t have to venture out in the snow to buy snow-day snacks.
