Junk Food from New Orleans

Zapp's Voodoo Chips, Bud's Deep Fried Peanuts, and Big Shot Fruit Punch

Here was some junk food that I picked up from the all-night liquor store across the street from the hotel tonight...and they were pretty much all locally produced, be it the "New Orleans' Own" Big Shot carbonated fruit punch to the Zapp's chips that I had last time, even if this Voodoo flavor was a bit sweet.

Perhaps the more interesting thing was those deep fried peanuts (OK, they're from Tennessee, but it's close enough), whose label says that you can eat them with the shell. Well, that's stretching it a bit. Sure, deep frying those goobers made the shells a bit easier to eat, but they were still peanut shells at the end of the day. At least the hot flavor got surprisingly spicy after shoving a few of them into my mouth.
