Free food washes up on beach

A cargo container that apparently fell from a ship washed up on the Outer Banks of North Carolina today and spilled thousands of bags of Doritos brand tortilla chips on the beach.

Scavengers collected the chips, which were apparently still fresh due to their airtight packaging. It was unknown which ship had lost the cargo or to what port it was bound.

(Ycon was reported to be frantically buying an air ticket to NC with her arms full of empty shopping bags)

Wow, sounds like some shipping company will lose a contract over that. At a buck a bag, that's a lot of money laying on the beach!!!

What suprises me is how high up the beach the container washed. I guess they must be quite light.

I'd bet the container is fairlywell sealed, however, whatever knocked that big ol' hole must have occured after it was on the beach, otherwise it would have filled with water and sank.

I'd bet some nosy beachgoer cracked that container open with a sledge to see what was inside.
