The Gateway Chip

Funny how I happened to be in 7-11 again the other day. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw some unfamiliar packaging, and took a closer look to find the details of this new flavor. Pizza Hut? That’s intriguing. Cheese pizza? I was somewhat taken aback at that. Of all possible pizza flavors, cheese?

But as I pondered the flavor on the walk home, I realized this could be a gateway chip. No chili. No lime. No seafood. No offal. Enjoyable for all ages. And then the stronger flavors beckon.
