My review of Lays (Canada) Cinnamon Bun chips.
Short version: AVOID.
Longer version:The scent that wafted out to greet me upon opening the bag was full of promise. Sweet lovely cinnamon bun. Not just cinnamon! That special warm smell of cinnamon and sugar and frosting. I’m usually a fan of sweet and savory and both my wife and daughter had already said it was surprisingly good.
No. Bad chip. BAD.
The first lone chip flooded my sinuses with the aroma of frosting and..not salt…not potato… I’m not sure what it was/is. It wasn’t good.
HOWEVER! As a chip eater I know that it takes more than one bite to really appreciate a flavor and clearly this intense burst of sensation was just my mouth resetting. True enough the next chip wasn’t such a shock to the system. In fact, with each chip it seemed like the cinnamon flavor was getting less and less. Hm. Interesting. In fact, it was getting almost bland. I could distinguish the bare potato carrier quite distinct from the powdered flavor coating.
Okay. Time for the next test. As anyone knows you don’t always eat a chip at a time. With a moment’s resolve I scooped up a large pinch of chips and filled my mouth with it.
BAD CHIP. BAAAAD CHIP!! Once I cleared my mouth I began to gulp water and milk to wash my mouth out and snort/exhale like a cat with the sneezes to clear the cloying fake frosting from the nasal passages. It was a lingering horrible artificial sweetness, not the loving Sunday morning breakfast love of a fresh cinnamon bun.
I will gladly leave the remainder of this bag to my family. If they hadn’t said they liked it I would be even happier to toss the rest of these in the trash. Hell I would burn them in my driveway. Do not abuse yourself with these chips.
Sorry Lays. Last year’s “Grilled Cheese and Ketchup” is the gold standard I’m measuring you against. These are like the bad auditions at American Idol that show up on the Best of the Worst reel.

Here’s a “life-hack” for you.Apparently concentrated Kool-Aid can be used as a pretty effective leather dye.I was making a drink while cutting the snaps off some new straps for my pauldrons and I got curious, so I tried it, thinking, “ok even if this works, it will just wash out.”Nope.It took the “dye” (undiluted) in about 3 seconds. After drying for about an hour and a half, it would not wash off in the hottest tap-water. It would not wash out after soaking for 30 minutes.It did not wash out until I BOILED it, and even then, only by a tiny bit and it gave it a weathered look that was kind of cool.Add some waterproofing and I’d wager it would survive even that.That rich red is only one application too.Plus it smells great, lol.So there you go, cheap, fruity smelling leather dye in all the colors Kool-Aid has to offer.

WELL THEN!

this may be important to some of my followers *and certainly not just getting reblogged because of my costuming and my boyfriends desire for leather armor*

You can mix the powdered stuff with water (no sugar) and use it to dye wool… just in case that might be of any use.

DIY Corset Belt Tutorial by rickrackruby at Craftster. These belts are made of ties and you will need an eyelet setter (so cheap with so many uses).
TIP: Make note of the instructions or download PDF patterns and printables - I cannot say this enough after going through my archives - so many blogs are dead and gone, have changed their “brand” and deleted their archives or photos are just missing from older posts. There have been patterns I wanted but didn’t copy or download on the spot and now they are gone.
