Who’s the Big Winner?

chipsRoy Halladay makes his Grapefruit League debut this afternoon against the Tigers in Lakeland.

Halladay is facing Detroit’s ‘A’ lineup (i.e. Torii Hunter, Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder, Victor Martinez, etc.) so it will be interesting to see how he does. Of course, Halladay said he is simply interested in improving his command and conditioning. In other words, don’t freak out if he gets knocked around a little bit. (But please feel free to freak out later in the spring if things aren’t going well.)

We’ll obviously have more about Halladay’s start later, but I think it’s imperative we share this critical news: Reporters, broadcasters and PR staff taste-tested potato chips in the Bright House Field press box yesterday. Why did we do this? Uh, because taste tests are awesome, and who wouldn’t want to try Chicken & Waffles potato chips? I thought I’d share to steer you in the right direction, if you were interested.

We voted using an AP-style poll and came up with the following results:

  • Chicken & Waffles and Sriracha tied with 33 points.
  • Cheesy Garlic Bread finished a distant third with 24.

But based purely on the remaining chips in each of the bags, I’d say Sriracha edged Chicken & Waffles. Sriracha had a nice heat and kick to it. Chicken & Waffles were good because they had the sweet, syrupy flavor mixed well with the salt.

Yes, they’re not Herr’s, but we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.

Carry on!
