Accidents happen. Sometimes they involve everyday objects. Other times, they involve tens of thousands of gallons of artificial flavoring. What’s important isn’t that the accident happened, but what’s done to prevent it from happening again. Jack ‘n Jill clearly had this in mind when they developed their Taquitos Spice Flavored Corn Chips.
Rather than risk another laboratory accident that might require the hasty introduction of an incongruous flavor combination, they obviously decided to keep the terminology as vague as possible so that no matter what sort of spice spillage happened to transpire, they could continue to use the same package. Whether the spice is turmeric, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg, basil, dill, cayenne, salt, pepper, thyme, sage, rosemary, or devil’s dung, it’s now guaranteed that there won’t be any late-night product redesigns. These corn chips claim only to be “spice flavored”, and to feature “spiced up flavor”. It really doesn’t get any more generic than that.
With the risk of tasty emergencies mitigated, the culinary chemists of Jack ‘n Jill are again free to come up with exciting new flavor sensations like…cheese.
