And such brilliant moves as this will keep them on top:
That’s right, you can own this bundle for ONLY 135.94. If you bought all this content separately it would cost you a whooping 125.31. That gives you a savings of +10 bucks! What a great deal from Paradox and Amazon! I can’t see why Paradox ever gets a backlash from anyone.
This was originally going to be another “I wish they would bring back” type of post, just about Oboisies. Fortunately someone has actually brought back Oboisies and they are available at amazon.com. You better believe the next time I got some change to spare Oboisies are going to be delivered to my front door. When I was talking about this to a friend of mine, she had actually never heard of Oboisies before. Poor youth never getting to taste wonderful Oboisies, for an idea of what they are:
Keebler decided to spread it’s wings and start making potato chips. These chips were delicious. Light and fluffy, they had these air bubbles in the chip I just can’t explain. I didn’t get them too often as a kid, but when I did I definitely remembered it. There was one downside to the chips. The bags tended to be 85% air and 15% chips. I mean it was just outrageous how much of the bag was air. One time when I was a kid I opened a bag, had two chips, and my dad yelled at me for having eaten that much of a bag. Of course since he never ate the chips himself he didn’t get how much of the bag was air.
But we can all rejoice, instead of hearing me bitch and moan about how Oboisies need to come back, in a week or two I can post a blog about how great they are. At this point the bag could be fulled with air but Nostalgia would make them delicious. It’s amazing how a brand can bounce around sometimes and be brought back. Now all I need is for A&W to open up near me and the world would be in balance. Oh yea, I wouldn’t mind if they served Fruitopia (which apparently survives in Canada) and lets not forget my obsession with getting to West Jefferson NC for the last Pepsi bottling plant that uses sugar cane instead of Nutra Sweet.
You know, looking at that last paragraph I might either have an obsession with food or just be a very odd person. I’m going to gamble on it being more of the odd. I used to live on the downslope of a hill, and it was a pretty intense incline. Well one day they had banners up for soap box racers that day. I figure I’d be able to watch a bunch of kids going downhill in stuff like this:
I figured it would be a good laugh watching them fall apart on the hill. Instead I found out that all the kids were racing downhill in nearly identical soapbox cars. It seems now all you do is go out and get a sponsor to buy you a car that is form fitted to the driver. So there’s no creativity or inventiveness, because everyone is exactly the same and it’s just a matter of getting their heads down lower.
I mean really, all this is doing is teaching kids to beg for money. It’s also no fun if you watching. Come on lil Johnnie, get your head lower then the other person. Is winning that important that you can’t just let the kids all make rinky dinky soap box racers and let them fall apart while going down the hill?
