Nachos Time: Nachos in the News - A convenient mouthful of short form nacho news, topped with the cheese of truth, jalapeno slices of journalism, beans of education, and other toppings of various questionable informative analogies. We bring you nacho news one chip at a time.
Welcome to Nachos Time, for when nacho related things happen in the news, but nothing in depth to write a real article about. Here’s what’s been going on with nachos recently:
ON NATIONAL NACHO DAY
As I'm sure you saw, November 6th was National Nacho Day so a lot of interesting factual and complete BS nacho information surfaced on the internet. Below is a bit of some of the interesting/gross/nostalgic/straight up lies that were witnessed.
Despite being described as the “Ultimate Nacho Recipe”, this is really just a messy pile of food covered in cheese. There’s a difference between making an edible pile of food that makes sense, Epic Meal Time does this weekly for instance, and what these two ladies are doing, dumping an appetizer sampler platter on a pile of chips. Do you honestly expect someone to lift a chip with a whole buffalo wing on it and eat it whole? Bones should not be on nachos! And how can you get a whole quesadilla on a chip when the former is four times larger than the latter? And kale, really? PURE MEDIA STUNT.
“HuffPo” compiled a bunch of horrible looking nacho pictures, which you should check out, but not eat or ever think about eating.
Remember that time when smugglers tried to get meth into the country via cans of nacho cheese? PRICELESS! And yet another reason to steer clear of nacho cheese. Unless you’re looking from a meth fix that is Mr. Jesse Pinkman.
I saw a few things about how nachos are the number one most requested food by pregnant ladies, and while I would like that to be true it is sadly nothing but lies. Pregnant ladies like spicy food in general as it causes them to sweat, which in turn cools them, which is I guess something that’s a problem with pregnant. So while they may not turn down a plate of nachos, they also wouldn’t turn down a chicken vindaloo or bowl of Thai chillies. BOOM, nacho myths busted.
ON TACO BELL ICE CREAM NACHOS
Taco Bell made what they’re referring to as "Cinnamon Nachos". What they really just appear to be are cinnamon chips with some caramel sauce and toffee bits. While I have not had any of these undoubtedly terrible things the good folks at On Second Scoop, which appears to be the Nachonomics of Ice Cream, have tried them. Check them out as we’re all for spreading our kind of food writing styles for different comestibles.
ON NACHO CRIME
Unfortunately nacho related crime is also back in the news. A gentlemen brought his own nachos into a 7-Eleven and was surprised and outraged when the owner got mad at him for adding the store’s meat and cheese to them. The real question here is how bad were these nachos to begin with that the addition of convenience store nacho cheese and meat were an improvement? Perhaps it was one of those from the horrible pictures above?
