I think the delivery driver took a wrong turn but I am intrigued. Canadian peeps, what can I expect???

JacqMac Delish! A little vinegary, a little ketchupy, a little bbq like. My kids love this flavour. If you eat too many, your mouth will shrivel up from the acid. But totally worth it. Lol 10mo
mrsmarch A quick Google makes me think this is going to be like barbecue everything but XXTRA. 10mo
MicheleinPhilly @JacqMac I love all of those flavors! 🎉 And that‘s what happens when I eat too many salt & vinegar chips. ☺️ 10mo

MicheleinPhilly @mrsmarch I am definitely intrigued! 10mo
Megabooks Exciting!! Lucky you!! 😋😋😋 10mo
LeahBergen Yep! All Dressed is all the flavours together. 😆😆 10mo
CouronneDhiver What @JacqMac said! 👌🏽 They‘re great 10mo
CouronneDhiver I hope they‘re the real deal... maybe we need to send you a Canadian-bought sample for comparison 🤣🤣 10mo
Jaimelire Yum. I grew up eating these👍 10mo
LauraBeth In your professional snacker opinion - how were these? 10mo
MicheleinPhilly @LauraBeth I enjoyed them. They reminded me of barbecue chips with a hint of vinegar. 10/10 would buy again. 10mo

#GetMovin #Anthem

When I think of anthem songs I can't help hearing Don't You Forget About Me sung by Simple Minds & made famous by The Breakfast Club. The song & the fist pump image are iconic. (Tell me you don't do it your car, the shower or any time you hear it! 🤣) Some of the books about 80s movies and their king, John Hughes, that are my stacks. I've read 2--Life Moves Pretty Fast & Searching For John Hughes & the other 3 are on my #TBR.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Brat Pack America is pretty good - I have Life Moves Pretty Fast in my TBR! 1y

#anthem #GetMovin
The Blair years have been tarnished by the iraq decision but this book takes as it's title the anthem to the 1997 campaign which after 17 years of a conservative government gave hope to millions.
This book tells of the writers years as a labour campaigner in the 1980's and is very funny.

A couple of you posted about your teen anthems so I have to post this. I was 17 and starting my last year of high school, when a wonderful boy played the song ‘Ideology‘ for my year group - we almost all became Billy Bragg fans on the spot, going to his concert, plastering his posters - I still love these songs nearly 30 yrs later but Ideology remains the #anthem https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=mVwGbYe9UYc

Cinfhen Thanks for sharing the YouTube link!! NEVER heard Billy Braggs before 1y
Centique @Cinfhen only famous in the UK and commonwealth I think. Kind of Bob Dylan crossed with The Clash. 👍🙃😉 1y
TK421 Billy Bragg did a wonderful album with Wilco several years ago called Mermaid Avenue. 1y

Centique @TK421 yes! I‘d heard it but you‘ve reminded me I must add it to my playlist 😊 1y
batsy Billy Bragg! So nice when their politics is as good as their art and they don't let you down in vile ways (Morrissey, I'm looking at you...) Sweet memories 💕 1y
Centique @batsy I hadn‘t heard those latest Morrissey quotes. Just went down the rabbit hole reading them. SMH. Definitely racist - and some weird pseudo intellectual snobbery stick too. I hope Billy Bragg never lets me down too badly! 🤞🤞 1y
CarolynM @batsy @Centique I'm sure Billy Bragg is one of the good ones like Paul Weller. They'll never let us down 1y
Centique @CarolynM yessss! The Style Council were so great - now I‘ve got a “You‘re the best thing” earworm going (and it‘s great!) 1y
batsy @CarolynM ❤️ I love The Jam and the Style Council but haven't paid much attention to his solo work. I must remedy that!! 1y
kspenmoll He is great; was introduced to him by a friend. 1y
Centique @kspenmoll that‘s so cool! I remember my parents being horrified by his “discordant” voice 😝 1y
