Got Choco-Choco Chips?

For those of you who aren't satisfied with free water, New York City has now tapped into that market with a water cafe.  It is right next door to the saltine cracker cafe and the pretzel cafe so make sure you hit those up first, not second.
It should be a crime how hot I am with a water mustache.

Personally, I suck down Coke Zero like it is water, but my Coke mustache looks like a real one, just with more bubbles.  I'm not as hot with that 'stache, though.  I look more like a cab driver.

I wonder if New York is ready for a Coke Zero cafe.

Also, in other news, I have created a new chip.
Lays has a contest open to see who can come up with a new flavor.  This is my flavor and my bag (don't touch!).  Did I mention that first prize is $1,000,000.00? My other flavor is cow chips.  They haven't made me a bag for that one, yet.  I am sure they are working on it as we speak.

Yesterday, I bought a bag of air and someone was kind enough to put 3 or 4 chips in the bag.
Yes, I am one step ahead of you.  New York needs an air cafe...and chocolate air.

  1. I've been to air bars in Vegas before. You basically breathe oxygen through a tube and it makes you light-headed.

    They come in different flavors, including chocolate! If that isn't worth a trip to Sin City, I don't know what is...

  2. Can't wait to see the cow chip bag ;-)

  3. Not sure Lays Potato Chips can be improved on but it will be interesting to see. Cute post!

  4. There are Oxygen bars around here.

    Let me restate that.

    They charge for flavored air. And people pay for it.

    Your chips lot completely awesome... and... well... Thank you for not providing a picture of your cow chips. I'm good without. :)

  5. Those bags of air, which sometimes contain some chips as an added bonus, also make for great pillows. I find Salt and Vinegar particularly comfy.

    1. That's what I thought too - pillows - ala Andy Warhol's floating silver pillows! ;)

  6. Hahah chocolate chips sound delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  7. Those bags of air have gotten pretty expensive - they need to throw in the bonus chips.

  8. all of a sudden, I really want to pay a lot of money for some air. Guess that means your ad is effective. Go Tracie!

  9. Would you call them chocolate chips, or chocolate chip chips? I think it's a bit of a rip off to open a water cafe. But I suppose if people are stupid enough to buy something they can get for free then eh. Then again, I do buy a fair amount of bottled water -_- Only when I'm at a cafe though. It's not like I keep bottles of water stocked up at home.

    ReplyDelete
  10. It's okay, I wouldn't look good with a mustache either. lol

    ReplyDelete
  11. While everyday things like air and water are packaged, marketed and sold, we are fortunate to still get your humor and witty cartoons for free....for now

  12. I love the part about a bag of air with four chips inside. Contents may settle my ass!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Chocolate covered potato chips would be amazing! You're onto something here.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'll have a glass of tepid water please with a full fat coke chaser...thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Call me crazy, but if I'm going to pay for water, I would rather spend a few extra bucks on somethin' that is gonna at least get me tipsy.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Well NY needs the air, as sucking in that smog can't be good. I tried for the million but page said error, damn it!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Be still my beating heart, chocolate chips! You deserve some sort of 'mad genius award' for such a brilliant idea.:D

    ReplyDelete
  18. CHOCOLATE CHIPS!!! mmmmm.you're a genius mwah....

    ReplyDelete
  19. I would absolutely buy Lays Chocolate chips! I hope you win so I can try them...oh, and so you can get a million dollars, too :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. hahaha-I'll buy your new flavor! Choco, not cow.
    I love chocolate covered potato chips! Sign me up.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, I hate it when I buy chips and the bag is less then half full. I guess they think chips scented air is what we really wanted all along.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hey, if they decide to make chocolate chips, I'm buying!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Chocolate chips -- brilliant. The perfect combination of sweet and salty. I vote for you to win the million. Will you please use a few dollars of your winnings to buy a man for me? I'm horny as hell.

    Love,
    Janie

  24. I think the idea of chocolate chips is brilliant!

  27. What a fun blog! Nice meeting you at Clarissa Draper's blog.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Chocolate air. Yum. Question: Is it approved by weight watchers?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wait, if you've just invented chocolate chips, then what I have been eating in chocolate chip cookies?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Chocolate Chips go with everything, and the bag even looks delicious! Best of luck with the contest! Julie

  34. People have more money than brains it seems...

    ReplyDelete
  35. I thought chips were those soggy bits of potato you get with fish?

    ReplyDelete
  36. You might be the only person I've heard of who can get a "Coke mustache". Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to combine trends and make a food truck that serves chocolate air.

    ReplyDelete
  37. mmm, chocolate air, can I get some with a smidgen of vanilla and cinnamon?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I think someone stole your chocolate Chios idea! I've got some in my cupboard - of course, the bag is different...

    We've had Oxygen bars in Toronto for years. It's harder to come by in big cities, I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  39. You're a riot. I would be willing to inhale chocolate air, buy chocolate chips but NOTHING with cow chips....well maybe I would be willing to toss a few.

    ReplyDelete
  40. This weekend, my brother let me try chocolate PEZ. Chocolate...! I never heard of those. Apparently, there's a PEZ factory near New Haven, Connecticut, which has been there FOR YEARS. I grew up in Connecticut and never heard of it, either. Guess I shoulda got out more. Or stopped chasing girls. Naw!!!!!!
    Oh, as far as that chocolate PEZ? I'd just as soon have Lays Chocolate Chips.
    Or even Coke Zero.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think your chocolate chips are a winner! And chocolate air...now that's a novel idea. Chocohalics would definitely go for that!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Actually, not a bad idea. I'd definitely try some chocolate chips. I've been trying to think of a flavor for a little while now. They've already got so many flavors of air bags.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Air. BAHAHAHAHA. Pretty frickin much!! Bahahah. I shared with my hubby and he whole heartedly agreed!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Mmmmm those chips look delicious. When will I see them in a store near me? I remember the air cafes, well air stands. They brought them into the malls, I don't see them anymore. I do tend to stay as far away from malls as I can though. Makes me bonkers. Water cafe?

    ReplyDelete
  45. love your chip and bag. pretty colour. chocolate air ? probably not for me :) i love chocolate though.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Nooooooooo! Tracie, how could you do this to me? I’m starting the 2nd week of my diet and I’ve been soooo strict (lost 5 pounds—yay!). And then I see your bag of Lay's Chocolate Chips. :-o Now (as I sit here drooling) all I can think about are chocolate-covered potato chips because I LOVE them. *hyperventilating*

    ReplyDelete
  47. Those look delectable but I would have to say my favorite chip is Hot Chip.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Funny post! I'm going on record as saying chocolate makes EVERYTHING better.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I heard about Molecule on the news the other day. I should probably take a trip over there and write a post about it. But the idea of paying for tap water makes me angry. So maybe I should stay away.

    Let me know when your chips are available. I'd gladly pay for those!

    ReplyDelete
  50. I remember the last time I went to an air bar. Me and my friends got so wasted on air it was crazy. We just kept breathing and breathing till the bartender cut us off.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Interesting how my efforts to sell things which are otherwise free fall flat but people buy boxes and bags mostly full of air all the time. It must be the marketing plan. I mean they've started selling regular water in the store, why not lint? Lint is a great fire-starter if you mix it with wax. And how about lint as a game? You pluck lint out of your bellybutton all the time. It could even be flavored bellybutton lint. I'll give you a slammin' deal. Your first day's bellybutton lint for FREE!!! You'll never get such a deal again. It ranks right up there with FREE AIR!
    For that matter, how valuable would air be if you were drowning? Wouldn't you pay a premium for just a gasp or two? I'd sell you a whole hike's worth of air for only $50. That's a steal, that is.

    ReplyDelete
  52. How aout paint chips? Of course, they'd have to be lead free....

    ReplyDelete
  53. Maybe they'll have air in a can like in "Spaceballs".

    ReplyDelete
  54. You will be a hero to chocoholics everywhere if they made your chip. I worked with a lady who gave up chocolate for Lent one year. It was like a druggy going through withdraws. The next year I bought her a big bag of her favorite chocolates and told her she could give up ANYTHING but chocolate that year.

    She would bow to your genius on this one.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Mmm delicious! Hope you win the million, or atleast some free chips, great idea!

    Great post as usual!

  56. Hahahahaha!! Chocolate chips indeed! :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. Haha, love it. You are in rare form today. I just love buying bags of air with a few chips. Don't you?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Pass the chocolate chips that's like killing to birds with one stone. Perfect for that time of the months days when I crave both chocolate and salt and a sawed off shotgun.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I would try some of those chocolate chips...I like the idea of a chocolate air bar...genius!!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Bacon is huge right now. It's the decade of the pig butt! Personally, I would buy the chocolate chips...oh, I see what you did there. That is clever. Anyway, but there are those that would prefer bacon chips. The perfect solution? Yeah, you got it, combine the two and create perfection.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hahah, yep often the bag weighs more than the contents. You're really onto something with the chocolate chips. I hope you are actually going to submit it. But it should be chocolate flavoured chips.
    When I was young enough to eat crap more often I would buy an ice cream we had in this country called a chocolate flavoured 'paddle pop' - a firm icy sort of ice-cream. I would get a bag of chips (all plain back then)(you know where I'm going with this don't you?) and at that sublime point when the paddle pop gets soft take a chip and scrape odd some paddle pop and eat it. Honestly who doesn't like chocolate coated peanuts? why not chocolate coated chips? Yum

    ReplyDelete
  62. What's sad about this is that people would actually pay money at those places.
    It's sickening.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hello there, I love the lays ~ Air plus 4 bonus free chips. Your creative mind goes a hundred miles an hour. Great post!
    I was so happy to get a visit for you and also delighted that you like my journal pages. That is a GREAT quote, isn't it.
    Have a marvelous day, Connie :)

  64. My cousin's been to an air bar! Apparently, they had lots of flavours. (Flavours? Scents? Whatever.)

    ReplyDelete
  65. You got 4 chips in your bag of air! All I ever get is a bunch of crumbs in mine. :(

    ReplyDelete
  66. This is downright hilarious. I have to come to NY to see this going down for myself. :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. Having 4 chips in the bag is like hitting the lottery!

    I just love those overly priced bags of air. Just goes to show people will pay anything to catch a whiff of their favorite chips!

    ReplyDelete
  68. Ugh!! I'd vote for the Chocolate Chips. They would be crazy not to give you the awards. Now if you could make zero (Zero...get it) calories we'd have a winner for sure. :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. 1 mil? Dang, good luck. I'd try it.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Holy... I am DYING.. This is the funniest thing I've seen since the Harry Potter mustaches... Love it!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Thank you for following my blog...You know I will follow yours...it is to much fun not to. I am proud to be follower number 621:)

    ReplyDelete
  72. Ha!

    Good luck with the chocolate chips... I'm not there, but if you come up with a spicy Nacho choc chip version, I be guinea pig:)

    ReplyDelete
  73. Haaaha. That's me with the water mustache...some would say I am boring, but I prefer...cosmic.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Dang, I'd buy those new chips from Lays. I wish I'd thought of that.

    ReplyDelete
  75. They probably need bags of oxygen in NY. Funny!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Yum. Lays is ridiculously expensive in these pats, though, but we have 'local' brands. The current flavour which is popular is seaweed.

    ReplyDelete
  77. So funny! I'm taking the train in this weekend. I'll definitely look for all of these new awesome cafes!

    ReplyDelete
  78. hey you won! I nominated you for *sigh* ANOTHER Liebster Award! http://thecoffeeblogs.blogspot.com/2012/07/40-i-won.html

    ReplyDelete
  79. The only place I've seen those air bars is in Vegas. I would think chocolate air would be a best seller! Personally, I prefer my air combined with plain old h2o...so maybe the water bar should have an air bar section. This seems like a black hole of ridiculousness.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Oh gah! Chocolate chips? I think I'd much prefer the cow chips. Oh wait. I just NOW got that. Gross. Oh double wait. I'm thinking of cow patties, not chips. So never mind. I'm sticking with my original vote for the cow chips.

    P.S. Bubbly mustache makes you look right sexy.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I laughed out loud at your bag full of air and 3-4 chips. Isn't this just how it is when you buy a bag or chips.

    ReplyDelete
  82. waiting for your next post :)

    ReplyDelete
  83. Well...I can't help but think that water is more healthy for us than coffee or Coca Cola, so maybe the Water Cafe folks are onto something good. And if it's expensive then it must be high quality, right?

    ReplyDelete
  84. Chocolate chips. Genius! Think of the uses. Cookies. Cakes. Cookies. squares. Did I mention cookies?

    ReplyDelete
  85. I've also purchased a few bags of air with chips thrown in! Grr.

    Hey, I'm all about the chocolate-flavored air cafe! I think I would actually buy a... a snort?

    Just think: NO CALORIES. *hopeful*

    ReplyDelete
  86. I never know where you're going to go in one of your posts, from air to chips to chip air...I love it!
