Last night's episode of the AMC series Breaking Bad, which marked the first of the final chapters for high-school-teacher-turned-meth-kingpin Walter White (Brian Cranston), was arguably the most anticipated TV event of the summer for those of us who managed not to get overly worked up over the birth of a certain royal baby. And while many mysteries remain unsolved, one has been revealed, to the delight of Boulder Canyon Natural Foods: Hank -- Walter nemesis, portrayed by Dean Norris -- has a thing for the company's salt-and-cracked-pepper chips.
Here's a screen capture posted on the Boulder Canyon Natural Foods Facebook page:
"Boulder chips in Breaking Bad!" wrote the Facebooker, to which the company responded, "Thanks for sharing this great screenshot! We're honored Hank chose us as his sleuthing snack!"
Replying to other viewers who noticed this particular example of local flavor, the page's minder added, "Finally proof that Hank Schrader has great snacking taste!" and "We were happy to see Hank makes good chip choices! We hope he washed them down with a nice cold Schraderbrau!"
