    Default Whole Shabang Potato Chips!

    I ran across this little article while researching Keefe the big commissary giant that pretty much has ALL the contracts for most of the prisons fed & state in the US....I thought it was a bit amusing that you had to be an inmate to be able to buy these potato chips. Which by the way are VERY good, it'll be the one thing about this DOC ordeal I'll miss when hubby comes home!


    The Quest for Moon Lodge "The Whole Shebang" Potato Chips
    The Price for These Chips is Guaranteed to Be Far More Steep Than Anything You've Ever Bought

    All- seasoned Moon Lodge "The Whole Shebang" potato chips, craved by many ex-cons, are flavored with salt, vinegar, barbecue seasoning, seasoning salt and an impressive array of other secret seasonings. These
    AdChoices
    ultra-flavorful chips are sold only on commissary lists at correction institutions, making it impossible to enjoy them unless you commit a crime first.

    In a quest to find these potato chips, I called the manufacturer directly. I spoke to an anonymous operator, at Keefe Commissary Network, who informed me that the chips are not sold to anyone outside of a correctional institution.

    She made it known that she is frustrated with the number of calls she receives about this issue. "Yeah, I know, everybody wants them."

    I asked if the chips could be sold in bulk to civilian business owners. Halfway through the request, she stopped me abruptly and said, "No, I'm sorry and I understand your frustration but you cannot buy or sample the chips."

    "Unless I go to prison, right?" I asked half-jokingly.

    "That is correct ma'am." She said it very seriously.

    A lengthy and frustrating search online led me nowhere but to several frustrated users on Yahoo Answers, asking the very same question. I moved on to look for a comparable product. What I found, was more frustration. Frito Lay's Ruffle brand offers a variety of potato chip called "All Dressed." While Frito Lay products are certainly popular and widely available in the US, the "All Dressed" variety is not. It is only sold in Canada. If you live in the US, two bags of these chips can set you back more than $20. The upside, I suppose, is that they are at least possible to obtain.

    That is stupid, I guess the amount of calls they get is no sign that they should sell it on the outside. So let me get this straight in order to get these chips you have to mess up enough to go to prison? and yet they could make millions on the outside too?




    or (if he gets all his gaintime)

    OR you're visiting an inmate coz they're sold in the VP as well lol...

    But yeah I agree, about all the $$ they could make on the outside if they released them to the public...go figure, maybe there's some kind of contractual thing or something keeping them from being sold on the outside...
