For Lipstick Thespian. be careful what you ask for.
Did you say "yootz"?
What is a yoot?

hugh janus is right, sorry johnny. The video made me smile though.

actually, evanizer from mefi, who grew up in the county where they're made told me that 'yootz' is the correct pronunciation. Either way it's onomotopoiec (or whatever) when combined with Schlitz.

Schiltz and Utz? That's when you end up with the shitz.
posted by puke & cry 14 September | 21:48
Or the shlutz.

and zitz.

I could see it being "ootz." I don't think it would be "yootz" without some sort of diacritical mark, but maybe a German speaker will come along and sort that out. It does pair well with "Schlitz." And they are awesome chips.

LT is currently offline but will love this when he sees it tomorrow.

he better. we drank a lot on his behalf. we would have drank anyway, but he gave it purpose.
posted by jonmc 14 September | 21:54
Miko, if you click the second link to the company website, they provide the pronunciation.

OOOOH! And they just said it right this second on Mad Men! How's that for synchronicity?

you will share this nightmare....

Seriously though, schilz?

as cheap beer goes, it's not bad, better than PBR. we polished off a bunch of blackberry wheat beer along with it, too, if that makes you feel any better.

The official potato crisp of discerning metachatters everywhere. Also, Schlitz beer is good, too.

I prefer pbr over schiltz, actually. But that may be because the name. Also pbr is really hard to find around here.
posted by puke & cry 14 September | 22:09
pbr has a syrupy undertaste. schlitz is no wonder of the world, but it tastes like beer. and of course, it gets you drunk.
posted by jonmc 14 September | 22:11
That's true about pbr, although I've never really thought about it until now. My cheap ass beer of choice is red dog. Cheapest per volume usually.

Those Death Valley Chipotle Kettle Chips are pretty okay.

You haven't lived until you've tried Utz salt-free chips with Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce ... mmmmmmmmm
posted by Susurration 14 September | 22:26
Thanks for the clarification, jrossi. I'm a little sorry it's not really "youtz," or "ootz" but I think it might be fun to call it that anyhow.

On Mad Men tonight Utz rhymed with nuts (spelled nutz).
posted by nickyskye 14 September | 23:53
As per LT's recommendation, I brought back a bag of each kind of Fox Family. They rock!

It's only Monday morning, and this has made my week.

Ha! That's great. Pips' laugh cracked me up.

JonMC - you did not fail me. HughJanus - you did not fail me. Pips - you did not fail me.


And it's Utz like Nutz and Futz and Cutz.

And Fox Family! Yes!
