As exciting as winning the lottery....kinda!


This is my big find from the Grocery Store this weekend. I always get excited when I find something vaguely American. It made me laugh Doritos Cool American, what flavor is American?
Turns out it's Cool Ranch....so now the Germans are going to think American taste a lot like Ranch flavoring! You don't even want to know how much I paid for this little gem of a find. It's not even a regular size chip bag, not quite as small as a lunch size but it's a wanna be regular size chip bag. Needless to say Katelyn had some friends over and it was gone in seconds flat.

Cool Ranch Doritos are #1 in our house. I can only imagine what you'd do for a bag of Twizzlers.

Ranch is the unofficial new ketchup.

Reminds me of a packet of potato chips i found in India, "Aussie Flavor," and the spices they'd used to make it "Aussie" was something this Aussie had never heard of :)

Fifi Flowers said...

Cool American? Interesting.... I wonder what the cheeto flavors are?

bevchen said...

Haha, that's funny.
In the UK those ones are called Cool Original flavour.

The Coteys said...

OH! You are so lucky, the closest to 'Cool American' that I have been able to find in Japan is 'Taco' flavored.

This post reminded me of the time I saw Dr. Pepper and neglected to buy it...it was the last time I saw it too...last August...
