I looked somewhat askance at the sample (I can do now since I've had LASIK sugery), then my eyes decided to hold a debate with my brain.

"Oh, look how pretty!" said my eyes, appreciating the dark red and bright green grape chunks. Meanwhile, my brain retorted: "But this is just wrong. Salsa should be tomato-y and oniony."

However, having had neither breakfast nor lunch, my stomach jumped in as the tie-breaker and said: EAT! So I gave the sample a try.

It was delicious! The sweetness of the grapes perfectly complimented the saltiness of the chip. Meanwhile, the residual zing from the jalapeņo and hot sauce was cooled by the fresh lemon flavor.
