Might be spicy!
I picked up a bag of the new "Artisan" chips from Tostitos at the grocery store earlier this week. Black bean and garlic flavored, as I recall.
As I was checking out, the cashier commented on them. "Have you had these before? They look good!"
I admitted I had not had them before, but I thought they looked good as well.
She said, "I've been meaning to get some, but by the time I get off work I forget about them. But they sure look good! Does that 'artisan' mean they're spicy?"
After gulping back a chuckle, as politely as I could I said, "Um, well, actually, I think that means they are hand-made or something like that."
"Oh," she said. "Well, they sure look good!"
But who knows? Maybe "artisan" is a new spice I hadn't heard of before!
