Review: 7 Layer Dip Tortilla Combos & Worst Way to Break Up with Someone
Junk Food Nation, we’re all fascinated with celebrities in one form or another. Me? I’m fascinated by athletes. But more than that, I’m fascinated by athlete COUPLES. People IN sports dating each other?? It blows my mind. It makes sense that athletes would run in similar circles and would have respect for other athletes who have the same sort of drive to be the best in their sport, etc. Case in point: Rory McIlroy, golf star, and Caroline Wozniacki, tennis star. They’ve been dating, got engaged, and were set to be married when *sad trombone* McIlroy broke off the engagement and the relationship days after sending out the couple’s wedding invitations.
The timing seems harsh, but whatever, I don’t know what’s going on in their lives, so I’m not going judge. But the method is what I want to know your opinion about, Nation: He broke off a wedding OVER THE PHONE. Damn. And the thing is, I was ready to kill the guy for doing this when *winces* I remembered I’d done the same thing myself before. (Crap.) I mean, it wasn’t a wedding-call-off, but whatever. Ugh, what a dunce I was.
ANYWAYS. I know these star athletes are traveling the world attending tournaments, etc., so maybe it’s hard to meet up. But breaking off an engagement via phone seems HARSH. (Worse yet – she thought it was a joke. Ouch). What’s the worst way to break up in your opinion? Or what have you experienced or heard of in terms of awful break up methods? I’ll start – I had a friend in college break up with a girl via DRY ERASE BOARD. I.e. he left the message on her stuck-outside-dorm-room-door Dry Erase Board. Wow.
So yeah – tell me your stories in the comments below.
Today’s junk food: 7 Layer Dip Tortilla Combos!
These 7 Layer Dip Tortilla Combos are not new, but I’d never seen them before until last week. I did a quick Google search for my site and found that I haven’t reviewed ANY Combos before. How could this be? I grew UP on Pizza Pretzel Combos! Weird. Anyways, these jumped out at me at my local Walmart, so here we are.
7 Layer Dip Tortilla Combos came in this 15-oz PARTY BAG. Let me tell you, 15 oz is A LOT OF COMBOS. Yikes. I’m not sure what is more scary to me – the size of the bag, or the promise of “Tangy Fiesta Flavor.” What the hell does THAT mean? Is this gonna be a party in my mouth? Yeah, ok. PROVE IT, COMBOS.
For the uninitiated, the chaos in a bowl pictured above is a Seven Layer Dip. According to Wiki:
- Refried beans
- Sour cream
- Picante salsa, pico de gallo or chopped tomatoes
- Grated Cheddar cheese, Monterey Jack cheese or a blend of both
- Black olives
- Layer may be one of many items, such as cooked ground beef, shredded lettuce for texture, sliced green onion or jalapeño chiles for additional spiciness.
7 Layer Dip Tortilla Combos will NOT make me say Ole! I guarantee it.
7 Layer Dip Tortilla Combos look like regular cracker combos…the shell was a little more glossy, like a Pretzel Combo, but obviously NOT a pretzel. It was also coated with a tad bit of salt, which was also more like a Pretzel Combo than the traditional cracker Combo. Meant to mimic a tortilla chip? I guess…
I popped a bunch of these 7 Layer Dip Tortilla Combos into my mouth, chewed, and generally liked these. Like regular combos, the “shell” was plenty crunchy – despite it being a mix of wheat and corn flour, I didn’t get very much “corn tortilla” flavor, unless the Snyder’s Korn Krunchers, for example. The outside of this shell tasted like – well, plain old Combos cracker shell.
The inside cheesy filling was good though. I’d be lying if I said I could distinguish all seven components, obviously, but I could taste cheddar and a strong seasoning of chili powder and cayenne. Don’t mistake it – these were not spicy at all. No, this just had a nice general savory flavor, created by the onion, garlic and tomato powders. You could’ve called these Taco Combos, and I would’ve said “Yeah, ok.” You could’ve called these Queso and Salsa Combos, and I would’ve said, “Yeah, ok.”
But yeah, not bad. If you like Combos, you’ll like these. Nothing super special, but tasty nevertheless – which is a good thing, because this was a BIG ASS BAG.
