I like to go to the movies. The sights, the sounds, the cinema, the whole shebang. The theater I usually go to is a large, stand alone building in a field of parking lot, but when I went to the special theatrical presentation of Mandy the other day I had to visit the Regal Cinemas at the local mall. This was unfortunate in that it was a longer drive to get to, but good in that I got a Cinnabon while walking around looking for new shoes before the film. There are some days though, days when you are eagerly awaiting to see how crazy Nicholas Cage is going to be in the latest Panos Cosmatos vehicle for example, when a single Cinnabon “Classic Roll” isn’t going to meet your caloric needs. Days when you need an additional 800+ calories from some movie theater concession nachos to make it through. Days like the one I am going to relate to you now where I sampled the Regal Cinemas Loaded Nachos.Read More
We’ve reviewed a lot of nachos here at Nachonomics. Nachos with every meat under the sun, and every vegetable under the ground. Nachos for the best of times, nachos for the worst of times. Nachos you can eat with a fox, and nachos you can eat in a box. Yes, we’ve had nachos for breakfast, nachos for lunch, and nachos for dinner, but never once nachos for dessert. Until now.Read More
"Your Last Meal" is a podcast where host Rachel Belle asks the famous guest, "What would your last meal be?" Well this week she asked musician Allen Stone what his would be, and the answer was of course nachos, because that is any sane individual's choice for a last meal. As also part of the podcast Rachel digs deep with experts on the food to get to its roots and history, so do you know who she turned to for nacho history? Why, Nachonomics of course, the Internet's predominant nacho news site! Check it out here!
What is an order of nachos worth to you? $1 of an order of Taco Bell Triple Layer Nachos? $6 for an order of concession nachos at your local movie theater? $12 for an order of nachos at your favorite sit down Mexican place? What about a single order of nachos for $120? Well, if that’s not out of your budget, 7908 Aspen in Aspen, Colorado has $90 or $120 nachos just for you! Also, you obviously have a bunch of expendable income, so how about checking out the Nachonomics store?Read More
We all remember the legendary story of Mary Reeser, the 67 year old Florida woman who is the most well known victim of Spontaneous Human Combustion, or SHC. Not much is known about the reason why a human body might for no reason just burst into flames, but the condition was first proposed in 1746, meaning humans have been living in fear of it for nigh on 300 years. As little as there is known about SHC though, there is even less known about SCC, also known as Spontaneous Chip Combustion.
Recently the fire department of Austin Texas had an encounter with tortilla chips of an extraordinary sort. Apparently there were some boxes of tortilla chips outside a factory that spontaneously exploded into fire for no discernible reason! If that wasn’t creepy enough, a mere three days later ANOTHER bunch of tortilla chips exploded into flames outside the very same factory! Now either this factory is the testing grounds of a new brand of weaponized chips so spicy that the flames manifest themselves into reality, or there is something truly supernatural going on...
You can read the details directly from the fire department here, and let them be a warning to you. Just because we can make chips that will metaphorically catch fire in your mouth, doesn’t mean that they might not also literally catch fire in your mouth as well. We are now 67 years since the death of Mary Reeser, who has now been dead for as long as she was alive, and we still have no answer to what happened to her. I imagine that if we could go back and examine that crime scene, maybe there would be a stray tortilla chip or two around the heap of ashes that she had once been that might give an idea...
