If you’re invested in fashion, you’ve probably heard the phrase “Clothes are a reflection of your personality.” I often think about this as I pick my clothes out for the day. As I drearily thrift through my closet, wondering where all my clothes are (in the laundry hamper), I can’t help but ponder: What piece of fabric properly mirrors my mood? Am I feeling like a busy pattern? Do I want to wear shorts? Should I check the weather? Wait, it’s raining? And, most importantly: how the hell do I properly pronounce my love of Funyuns to the world?
The apparent answer arrived to the Foodbeast office recently.
I watched my editor, Reach Guinto, slice open a box and pull out a smaller box emblazoned with the Funyuns logo. Inside sat three bags of Funyuns and enough packing paper to drown in, just in case the two layers of boxes weren’t enough to keep those chips safe. Upon investigating, we saw that one of the bags, the bigger one, lay open, so we picked that one to dig into first.
Inside sat not a salty snack, but more packing paper. Thankfully, one thing is for sure, Funyuns knows how to keep a package safe. But more importantly, under that, finally unfortified, sat the crown jewel: a Funyuns pocket tee. But not just any pocket tee.
It’s bright yellow, with a Funyuns logo front and center, and a clever nutrition facts-based tag. The pièce de résistance of it, though, is the Funyuns bag-sized pocket sitting front and center.
At long last, me and every other hot Funyuns fanatic can keep a fresh bag on deck for when necessity calls. This is the only time we’ll be united, except when we’re all in the hospital together for destroying our stomach linings. Who knew a t-shirt could be so unifying!
For now, the shirts are only available if you keep your eyes peeled on their Twitter as they’ll be giving some away in the coming days.
