An Addiction to Chips

One thing my friend Michelle and I have in common is a deep love of chips. Since I've known her, Michelle has lived abroad twice - once in China and now in London - both times for about a year. We like to spoil each other by sending care packages. The things I've received from Michelle include various Starbucks paraphenalia to furnish my obsessive hobby, PJs, chocolates, chapsticks, and other fun little knick-knacks.

All of the care packages I have sent to her are varied but are mainly food-based. She likes Trader Joe's, See's Scotmallow, and chips. Michelle's favorite types of chips are the Maui Sweet Onion chips and Flamin' hot Cheetos, and these two are constant staples in my care packages to her. In the most recent care package I sent her, I added Salt & Vinegar chips and Salt & Pepper kettle chips. The international cost of shipping, at $34, makes these the most expensive chips in the world.
