To California with Love

7 Nov

If Washington, the Evergreen State, were to get in touch with its Pacific Coastal state sibling, California…

Hey Cali,

News travels lightning fast these days so you should have already heard…  Yup, same-sex marriage is approved, marijuana legalization is approved, and charter schools funding is approved.  Am I happy, sistah?  Am I happy?!  You bet I am!  I’m so happy I could smoke a joint.  And it would be legal.  Wow.  I should thank you, you know… I’ve got so many liberal transplants from the Golden State livin’ in my hoods.  Woohoo, remember the Summer of Love?  Watch this video to joggle your memory. 

Uh oh, now where was I… Oh right… I’m having the Autumn of Happiness.  It’s almost as if the flower kids and grandkids decided to get together in my land of salmon, geoduck, and Evergreens. 

Now tell me what’s going on with your people.  I cannot believe Prop. 37 did not pass.  Four years ago Prop. Hate (ahem, I meant 8) won, and now Prop 37 lost.  If only the results were reversed with 8 losing and 37 winning, yea?  At least Props. 30 and 35 passed.

Buck up, Goldie, the “food fight” isn’t over yet.  I’ve got your back and I’ve got I-522 waiting in the wings.  We’ve got to keep the issue in balance though by heeding the advice of our scientists; they don’t all work for giant food companies and just because they say GMO foods are safe doesn’t mean they support controversial business practices of big food companies.  We also must keep in mind that the global population is continuously growing and we need to find sustainable ways to feed everyone.  By “we”, I mean scientists, activists, constituents, and politicians.  So I guess that means all of us.  Sustainability is the key word here.  Lucky for us, our peeps have access to fresh produce and local foods thanks to the farmers markets and food companies that use environmentally responsible business practices.

Whoa.  I think I’m getting the munchies.  Speaking of sustainability, have you heard of Kettle Brand Chips?  Looks like it’s a good model for a food company. 

Can’t. Resist. The. Cravings.  I’m going to go celebrate with a bag of Tias


Kettle Brand Chips Limited Edition Flavors

20 Aug

Early this afternoon, while in the middle of weeding, the UPS delivery dude (I just can’t shake off the Californian in me) arrived, I was icky and covered with pollen and weed seeds, and was glad that he offered to just drop off the packages at the front door and not bother me with signing off.  When I passed by the porch, I noticed that there were two packages.  (Surprise!)  I only expected one.  One of the boxes was reddish and on the visible side, it had “DELICIOUS” written on it.  I took that as a sign that I should wrap up weeding, clean up, and open the box of deliciousness. What could it be, I wondered. Whoa, whoa, whoa.  It’s Christmas in August!  Lucky me! Kettle Brand Chips is having its 30th birthday and to celebrate, Kettle Foods, Inc. gave away limited edition chips to 5,000 randomly selected winners.  The flavors are: Red Chili, Jalapeño Jack, Salsa with Mesquite, and Cheddar Beer.  Oh my! I’m exercising self control like no one would believe.  I wish my potato chips queen sister, Claire, is here so I could share the wealth but I’m also glad she’s nowhere near or all the chips would be devoured.  In. One. Day. Interested in trying out the limited edition flavors?  5 oz bags of all four classics will be available in select natural food stores for $2.79 each, while Jalapeño Jack and Red Chili, in 8.5 oz bags for $3.49, will be avaible in grocery stores this fall.  If you want to get your hands on these retired flavors sooner rather than later, visit the Kettle Chips online store.  Stat!

To the good folks of Kettle Foods, Inc., thank you for the goodies!  Happy 30th Birthday Kettle Brand Chips!  May you have many more birthdays and offer more tantalizing potato chips flavors!
