An Open Letter To Frito-Lay
Yesterday was a tiring day. "Why..." you might ask..."did you spend the day out trout fishing and you caught so many you can't possibly lift your arms any longer?" If you read this blog even somewhat regularly you definitely know better than that.
I was burned out because I spent the majority of Monday removing the wallpaper from my first floor powder room. Seriously, is there a worse home improvement chore than removing old wallpaper? There might be...but they are also few and far between.

Anyway, I was pleased to see the 2011 Cabela's Fly Fishing catalog arrive in the mail, so I decided to unwind last night by flipping through the pages while doing some light snacking. My wife bought a bag of Frito-Lay Munchies "Cheese Fix" Snack Mix, which might possibly be my newest favorite guilty pleasure, save one missing element. It struck such a nerve so deep from within, and led me to writing the following...
|That bag didn't stand a chance|
Let me preface this letter by commending you on creating a superior snack; I am of course referencing the Munchies Cheese Fix Snack Mix. Your combination of the "Four Horsemen of Crunch" - Cheetos, Doritos, Rold Gold, & the extremely underrated Sun Chip is an extreme pleasure to the palate, especially when combined with an ice-cold Dr. Pepper. However you are missing one crucial ingredient, that if considered, will elevate this humble product to unforeseen heights.
Your omission of Fritos, particularly BBQ flavored Fritos, is an oversight I simply cannot ignore. Yes, I realize that BBQ Fritos go against the "Cheese Fix" theme, but sacrifices sometimes need to be made for the greater good of society. With their absence you are depriving us, your loyal customers of something only legends are made of.
In closing, all I request is that you please represent your Frito-Lay brand name accurately and strongly consider adding BBQ Fritos to this majestic concoction of cheeziness. America is looking for a leader to deliver greatness in 2011, and this is your chance to show us all how it is done.
Sorry for the rant all. My brain was fried and thus acted accordingly. Fishing returns tomorrow with the Wednesday Nibbles...
