Deep within the Jack ‘n Jill laboratories at 3:00 a.m., a crisis was silently brewing. The 10,000 gallon tank that holds artificial nacho cheese flavoring was beginning to buckle under the strain of its chemical contents. At just about the same time, the 10,000 gallon tank that holds artificial barbecue flavoring was being siphoned by agents of Wong Lo Kat, presumably for nefarious and non-culinary purposes.
At precisely 3:15 a.m., the tank containing artificial nacho cheese flavoring ruptured. The ensuing flood of orange-yellow ooze sent Wong Lo Kat’s henchmen fleeing in such a hurry that they forgot to turn off the artificial barbecue flavor spigot. The next morning, the laboratory was filled with 19,950 gallons of artificial flavoring (50 gallons of artificial barbecue flavoring had already been stolen by the henchmen before the disaster).
With thousands of orders for Tostillas tortilla chips to be filled, and no way to separate the flavorings back into their individual artificial components, the snack engineers at Jack ‘n Jill were left with no choice but to hastily devise a new flavor. One of them quickly downloaded a free font from the Internet and created a garish logo. The others began frantically pumping the flavor concoction back into the remaining artificial flavor tanks (after remembering to turn off the artificial barbecue flavor spigot). Thus, Jack ‘n Jill Nacho Barbecue Flavored Tortilla Chips were born.
Unfortunately, the ensuing delay between this happy accident (don’t call it a mistake) and the time these chips arrived for testing allowed them to become quite stale. This made it almost impossible to fairly evaluate the results of the quick thinking that night in the Jack ‘n Jill laboratories. Sorry, guys. I know how terrible it is to do all that hard work and not get any credit for it. Maybe some other time we can give your strange snack a fair taste test. I’m sure there will be plenty of opportunities; 19,950 gallons of artificial nacho barbecue flavor will last for a really long time.
