On a recent trip to Schnucks (8800 Manchester Road; 314-961-5454), Gut Check glimpsed bags of
potato tater chips emblazoned with the visage of comedian Larry the Cable Guy goading us with, "Boy that's good eatin'!" Only in America is correct, Larry.
The sack of tater chips that first caught our eye was the barbecue rib flavor, arguably the most traditional chip flavor of the bunch. Larry also makes tater chips in flavors such as fried dill pickle, cheeseburger and buffalo wings, though on our visit to the Schnucks in Brentwood, the latter wasn't available.
But, much to Gut Check's delight, that's not where Larry the Cable Guy's line of consumables ends.
A portion of the sales of Larry's food products benefit the Git-R-Done Foundation, Larry's project to help children's and veteran's organizations. At GitRDoneFoundation.org, a platter of comestibles are available to order online, including "Lord, I Apologize BBQ Sauce," salsas and dips, "Classic American Burgers," and frozen foods such as chili with beans and smokey bacon jalapeno mac 'n cheese.
The jury is still out on whether Larry will sling products from his Git-R-Done line when he visits Sedalia, Missouri for the Missouri State Fair on Friday, August 17. Thankfully, if not, or for those not able to attend to find out, the internets -- and at least the Schnucks in Brentwood -- abide.
