Words I Realized: Roleg

roleg [roh-leg], n – small shards of potato chip or like product that remain in the bag following consumption of the primary chip fragments

Few things in life bring me back to childhood better than cocking my head and sucking back a deep, unabashed pull of roleg.  There’s something oddly satisfying about fully extending your gullet and taking in all the loose chip shards, flavor particles, salt, garlic and/or powdered cheese.  Or fuckin’ snort that shit.  Whatever.

Fran made it a point to collect loose morsels from several bags of chips in order to make herself a well-stuffed roleg omelet.

Wait, roleg?? I don’t get it… Can you explain?
