In God's Country
These are God's chips! Brim's is a snack food company based in Tennessee that began in the year of our Lord, 1979, as a small pork rind manufacturer and to this day they can only claim to be a distributor, and not a maker, of potato chips. And that's a good thing because these chips are not great though they should be! Cooked in corn oil, they could have used a few more seconds in the cooking oil. The chips are flaky, blistered like Wise, but none are browned, there are zero of those errant burnt chips that make a bag of thin, crumbly chips a secret joy. The chips have a machine cut, a big chip factory feel and no kind of human touch. Even the salt seems skimped on. That they so proudly advertise "No Trans Fat" right on the bag leads me to imagine that until recently the chips had been cooked in a trans fatty oil, and only the oil itself has been replaced, the cooking process has otherwise remain unchanged. The back of the package has a quote from scripture, John 1:29: "The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!" Jesus woulda been like, "dude, finish ya breakfast!"
PS unpleasant aftertaste!
