I knew I was forgetting something last night. Yesterday’s Cape Cod Potato Chip flavor was Robust Russet, which happens to be the variety we saw being bagged on our tour. The company describes them this way:
“Our Russet is a chestnut colored chip with a robust potato flavor. But don’t worry – they’re not burnt. Their unique color is a result of the naturally forming sugars in a Russet potato. Enjoy!”
We gave them a 9 out 10. Not oily, just the right amount of salt, and tasting deliciously of potato. These are dangerous chips—the kind you could sit down with after a long chorus rehearsal just long enough to watch Cake Boss and realize with a start that it’s almost midnight and the chips are all gone. Not that I’ve done that myself, you understand . . . I’m just hypothesizing here.
Oh and in other news: the untold dangers of smoking. Vikki went out this morning for an early (like 4:40 am early) smoke and locked herself out of our suite, wearing, um, well, she was pretty much decently covered. Rosemary and I were both sound asleep—wearing earplugs, no less!—so it took about 40 minutes of knocking before anyone heard her. Be warned, children: Smoking is bad for your dignity as well as your health.
P.S. The Cape Code Potato Chip Factory has a fantastic Web site, with an online tour, tourist info about the Cape, and more. It’s a great way to entertain yourself and it’s calorie free.
P.P.S. Note the lighthouse on the bag. Then go look at the Nauset Light picture in yesterday’s post. Uh-huh. That’s it.
