My Gran was no joke. A hilarious lady that loved to laugh and was extremely was fun to be around. Just don't mess with her stuff! My dad took her pan that she used to make pralines with because it made the perfect vessel to drain motor oil, transmission fluid, and any number of toxic/flammable fluids that came out of a car.
I witnessed the following when I was 13 years old while visiting my Gran during a break from school.
My dad replied "Momma, I'ma give you your pan back. I'm just borrowing it. Shit!" Gran shot back, "Don't you understand I can't use it once you put all that shit in there. People gotta eat outta that!" To which my father responded, "I told you I'ma clean the Goddamn thing! Momma (Unintelligible)...shit!" She never used that pan again.
I laugh everytime I think about that memory. I can recount countless more stories with similar dialogue that my father and his mother had over something he did, didn't do, shouldn't have done, was gonna do, or she thought he did.
I love that lady! I still miss her as if I lost her yesterday.
When my father passed away, one of the first things I made sure to keep was that praline pan. Everytime I use it to drain my motor oil, I feel like my father and my Gran are still with me. I can still hear that argument and remember the many times my dad and I used that pan to work on my cars together.
Looking at that pan, you'd think it's not very valuable. It just so happens to be, by far, one of the most valuable things I own.
On to the review! These chocolate covered Lay's have been around for some time. I've had them before a few years prior, but only tried a few. I now have a bag all to myself! Upon first bite, I get the bitter taste of dark chocolate accompanied by the salty muted crunch of the potato chip. The chocolate is coated pretty thick! The chocolate is so thick, that it changes the texture of the chip, making the crunch much less potent. Not bad. Definitely something different. These would make an awesome movie theatre snack! If you're a chocolate lover, you'd love these.
4 outta 5 on the Chipmack scale.
