You expect me to believe you’ve never eaten Funyuns?

I thought it was really funny that Yesterday’s Pearls Before Swine comic was about Funyuns, ha.

My dad, about a week ago, stated that he’s not eaten Funyuns before. This, coming from a man who never met a salty snack he hasn’t liked. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree, either, I LOVE any kind of chips. And I consider it my mission to introduce my son’s friends to all kinds of different foods- nopales, ramen noodles, edamame, and a host of other different treats.

This was going to be fun, and we headed off to the Mexican market for some groceries and different chips… Funyuns for my dad and other snacks that I was sure the my mom, mom-in-law and husband have all not tried, and we had a great lineup:

I think my mom wins the Best Face Made while trying a new snack- despite this face, she decided that she liked freshly made chicharrones:

Here’s the Funyuns Face of Approval:

I still can't believe that he hasn't tried Funyuns before...

We also tried a corn stick snack called Charritos- Chile Limón flavor:

We all pretty much liked the Charritos Chile Limón flavor...

Despite the face mom-in-law is making, we all decided that the Original Black Bean Chips by Beanitos were not only all right, but they would be great with guacamole-

She didn't think these would be good, but was surprised that they were.

Only Abby could handle the heat of the Ruffles Tapatío Limón flavored potato chips. Holy crap, these were HOT!

The one and a half Mexicans in the tasting panel thought that these were too hot! Abby liked them, though.

So try the Beanitos and Charritos for a different snack, the Ruffles Tapatío if you really like the heat, and if you have never had the pleasure of Funyuns, WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR, GO GET SOME!
