Christian Junk Food!

Recommended Posts

I'm in Toronto, and once in awhile I pick up some cheap chips/popcorn/party mix called Uncle Ray's at the local dollar store. Up until a few weeks ago, I only looked at the packaging to check their origins (Detroit MI). Well, it seems Uncle Ray is a devout Christian and different portions of his life story are printed on each bag. The web site includes scripture and (I think) some of these stories/chapters.

They do make a mean dill pickle chip (which I thought was only Canadian)

ETA This isn't meant as an advert/spam...I just thought it was funny.

I've never heard of Uncle Ray's. The website doesn't really say anything about Ray Jenkins' faith, nor does the Wikipedia page.

Pringles makes 'em in the US too.

I love those chips (Torontoian!) My favourite tasting ones are the salt-free, but the best story is the one about skinny dipping. I think it's on the back of the "Hot" flavoured ones :lol:

Uncle Ray’s is the brand name of a line of food products that was started by a mister Ray Jenkins after 1995. All Uncle Ray's brand products are currently produced by Uncle Ray's LLC in Detroit, Michigan. Uncle Ray's LLC (formerly Cabana Foods) specializes in Potato chips and other snack foods such as onion rings, pretzels and cheese curls. A brief chapter from a series of Christian-themed stories dubbed "The Life and Times of Uncle Ray" can be found on the back of Uncle Ray's brand products.

Those aren't bad but when I have a serious dill pickle potato chip craving I like to put dill pickle slices on play Lay's potato chips. So good!

I'd wondered what happened to Cabana potato chips!

Son of a bitch. I ate those Uncle Ray's chips once. (I thought they had a funny texture though).

I don't mind the very subtle verse references on In 'N' Out packaging. It's just the citation, not the verse, and somewhere inconspicuous, like the inside of the rim on the bottom of the cup. If you don't know the bible very well, you'd have to look up what they are. I DO mind when it's in-your-face, like right there in plain text on the back of the packaging.

I love dill pickle Lay's chips but I have a hell of a time finding them here. I'll dip plain Lay's in pickle juice as a substitute.

Bob's Killer Bread is just as good if you can get it in your area. And Bob's supports progressive causes, and equal rights for all Americans.

Oh is at the same as Killer Dave's bread? One of my coworkers is from a Oregon, and was raving that the Spelt bread is the best ever. He even had some shipped out to the midwest for myself and my department to try...however at $11 a loaf (bread + shipping) I'm not sure any bread is quite that good. Apparently the cinnamon roll bread is amazing as well...he's in Oregon this week so I may ask him to schlep some back go Chicago.

Btw I love the story behind Killer Dave's bread!

In-N-Out Burger has a bible verse on the bottom of all their cups. I can't remember what it is. Thier french fries are to die for, especially animal style.

I see those chips everywhere. I'm 45 minutes outside Detroit. I think they have a few other products, but I've never looked too closely. I'm not a big chip fan.

One has the right to speak and advertise his/her mind and one has the right to not buy it. That is, if it's being presented forthrightly.

Here's the testimony of a guy who makes a great soap! http://www.drbronner.com/

His testimony is written all over the label. It's the design - all words, all over the place. With my middle-aged eyes, I couldn't read it, so I googled this brand of soap and it's on the website, too.

edited because I accidentally posted before I finished ...

That is the man who taught me all about peytote enemas. :shock: Strange but very true.

you know him personally? or did you just read about it?

I actually agree with him on the surface, the emphasis on unity and all.

(but we're derailing the thread...)

... peyote enemas? what does "Dr." Bronner have to do with those (serious derailment - putting forth wrists for well-deserved sound slapping)

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
