The Most Expensive Snack Ever In My Life.
I was in QMart the other day. For those who haven’t heard of QMart, it’s a specialized grocery store in Hyderabad (India) that sells imported food stuffs that you don’t get elsewhere.
My niece yells, ‘CHEEETOOS’. I look to where she’s pointing and find a snack pack that looks like ‘Kurkure’. I've never eaten Cheetos before. She asks if she can pick one. I nod yes and we move on. We finish shopping and leave. Back home i’m having tea. My niece waves the Cheetos packet in my face, ‘You want some?’ As i dig my fingers in, i almost do a double take. Is it true what i’m seeing? I grab the packet from her. This is what i see …
Did the pack say 620 rupees?
I scramble to find the shopping receipt.
I just paid 620 rupees for a snack that tastes like a bad version of Kurkure. This Cheetos packet weighed 266 grams. Just for reference a 158 gram Kurkure packet costs 35 rupees. You do the math.
I could have got about 18 packets of Kurkure instead of a single packet of Cheetos.
