Which Mexican Chip Are You Based on Your Zodiac Sign?

Savory or spicy? A subtle crisp or an obnoxious attention-seeking crunch? There’s a chip for every personality, which is why we thought we’d go ahead and pick out which one of our favorite brands of Mexican chips can best be connected to each sign of the Zodiac.

Now, which carby delight best describe you in chip form? Apologies if we seem a little salty with these, it’s only because we’re comparing people to convenience store junk food. So, which one are you, my sweet little snacks?

Aries & Sabritones 

An Aries loves a kick as much as they have to be the most interesting person in the room. Since these Sabritones are unlike your usual crunchy chip situation with their puffed out egos – sorry, Aries 😉 – and their commanding fun but spicy flavor, you’ll fight whoever says these chips aren’t the bomb the same way you’d go after anyone who doesn’t respect your authority.

Taurus & Santitas

Loyal and reliable, Taurus. What’s more you than the chip that’s always $2 because it’s friggin’ printed on the bag? You’re consistent, no matter what grocery store we may find you in, and just like this family-sized bag, you’re always full of hard work.

Even if that hard work is eating the entire bag – something we’re not afraid of taking on single-handedly. Sharing? No thanks. Taureans are a one mate type of sign, anyway! This bag is mine!

Gemini & Doritos Tapatío 

Talkative Geminis are also known for their love of food. I guess it’s the only way they can keep their energy up for all that gabbing! More often, they’re known for their particular love of junk food, whether it be sweet or salty, which is why Doritos con Tapatío is very, very Gemini.

Two-sided, much like you! Is it a bag of Doritos or a bottle of Tapatío?! When you can’t make up your mind, porque no los dos?

Cancer & Tostito’s Scoops

Cancers are all-around good people. Hard-working, nice, and imaginative. The Tostito’s scoops of human beings. You’re consistent with your flavor and universal in your skills, even if those skills mean scooping up all that salsa.

Probably a Cancer came up with the idea to turn a tortilla chip into a scoop, anyway. Nice work! You’re also a true friend, and true friends bring the queso with that bag of chips. Mind picking some up on the way over? Thanks!

Leo & Adobadas Flavored Sabritas

Wow, a chip made to taste like a spicy pork dish. Pretty ostentatious. Right, Leo? Kind of just as attention-seeking as you are! The flavor of this chip packs a punch and is a fun new take on the otherwise bland and greasy flavors of Lays chips.

Yeah, these aren’t even tortilla chips! Sounds as flaky as you, lion! Umm, kiddiiiiiing. But not really.

Virgo & Mission Original Tortilla Strips 

You’re analytical in your choices to make sure you’re making the best possible one, so obviously you’d go with the chip that has…a mission. Ugh, sorry. Couldn’t help it. At the same time, you’re also shy with your choices, so you’d go with an easy, seemingly dependable option.

You’re all work, and these chips mean simple, tortilla chip business with no frills. Congrats, you’re as basic as the most common grocery store chip brand barbecuing dads love!

Libra & R.W. Garcia Veggie MixtBag

 

As a Libra, you’re diplomatic and fair-minded. “Why not include all vegetable flavors?!” you’d ask, weighing them all out on your little chip scales.

With that commitment to cooperation, you’re also indecisive, so a bag of mixed flavors is basically the best way to sum you up. I guess thank you for standing up for other vegetables being represented in chip form? You can eat these, we’ll pass.

Scorpio & Takis Fuego 

Just like Takis Fuegos, Scorpios aren’t for the faint of heart. These chips are for the passionate, the intelligent, the fearless. Don’t even think about offering a scorpion some lame Lay’s. Who the hell do you take them for?

No, a Scorpio is someone who ignites the snack flame of your heart and the burn in your butt soon to follow. But remember, you ain’t fancy. You think you’re hot shit, but in reality, we can still find you at any neighborhood 7-Eleven, scorp. Thanks for the wild ride!

Sagittarius & Chicharrones 

Like the beloved baked skin of a pig, you’re generous, well-traveled, and funny, Sag. I mean, who’s idea was it to eat the pigskin? And why does it taste good? Eating the pigskin is like being too lazy to wait to get to the rest of the pig so they were like, screw it! Just eat the first layer you hit!

Basically the same as your impatience, Sag. Good thing there’s no such as horse chips or you’d be in trouble. You’re also generous and love to share, just like the folks who eat chicharrones instead of regular chips. They’re a special breed.

Capricorn & Mission Original Tortilla Strips

You’re responsible and disciplined, Capricorn, and just like these bland-ass chips at every grocery store chain, you’re at least consistent in being there and probably being on sale. That being said, who do you think you in that fancy-ass bag pretending like you’re a better chip than you are?

You really think you’re the epitome of talent, erm, I mean chip, but just because you work hard to get your ass in every Walmart doesn’t mean you’re the best, honey. You do your job, though. We can’t deny that.

Aquarius & Yuca Chips

Hey, Aquarius! Um, yeah, you. You’re the undisputed weirdo of the zodiac – the one who’s a little off in all the best ways. You’re spontaneous, quirky, and authentically YOU at all times. So who says you’d be like any old run-of-the-mill tortilla chip? Please.

When everyone else tries to push the status quo, you’re already on another planet. That’s why yuca chips are you in a nutshell, err, I mean, a bag. A unique flavor, just like you. You may not be for everybody, but who wants to be liked by everyone? That’s just exhausting.

Pisces & Mission Organics Blue Corn 

Wow, it’s blue. As in the color of water. Because you’re a fish. Get it? Blue corn chips, just like you, are healthier and therefore wiser. Wow, you’re just SO much more in tune with the world, Pisces. You’re so artistic you deserve a chip as ingenious as you.

Don’t get all victimized when people don’t feel like eating your whole bag, though. Not everyone is as deep as you and your subtle taste of sea salt. Isn’t it ironic that this chip also looks like a teardrop? Enjoy the crunch, emotional Pisces.

This Is The New Year’s Resolution For You Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The new year is the perfect time to set goals, make changes, and have a fresh start, but it can also be hard to figure out where to begin. Plus, 2021 isn’t just any new year – I mean take a look back at 2020, we have so much to turn the page from.

Well, one helpful place to start is to look to the stars. Based on their characteristics, every Zodiac sign has a potential goal they can work toward in 2021, despite whatever obstacles may be coming their way. Keep reading to find out about your sign’s resolutions, and cheers to a new year!

ARIES

aries

As one of the most restless signs, Aries are enthusiastic and can have a hard time sitting still. Lean into that need for stimulation and make a goal this year to find a new hobby — maybe playing a sport or learning an instrument — and see it all the way through to perfecting it. With Aries impatience, this may be difficult, but it’ll be worth the satisfaction when you accomplish it.

TAURUS

taurus

While you’re extremely strong and committed, this often can lead to stubbornness. In 2021, pick your battles. While your passion is admirable, sometimes compromise is necessary. Alleviate some stress by figuring out what is worth fighting for and what could be easily settled with mutual understanding.

GEMINI

gemini

A Gemini is known to be passionate but indecisive, and you tend to divide your focus among the variety of tasks you want to accomplish. This year, go easy on yourself! There’s no need to take on too many projects at once and get overwhelmed. Harness that passion towards something you really want, and work on that first.

CANCER

cancer

People often rely on their Cancer friends for help with a problem since Cancers are incredibly empathetic. In 2021, don’t be afraid to ask for help yourself. It’s great that you love being there for others, but let others be there for you too every once in a while.

LEO

leo

Leos have amazing confidence and bring a powerful presence to any room. In the new year, use that Leo energy toward a cause you feel passionate about. Plus, after the debacle of 2020, it would be a great time to get involved in your community and use your strong voice to make a change you’d like to see.

VIRGO

virgo

Virgos are incredibly organized and responsible, which are wonderful traits to have. But in 2021, in between scheduling and making to-do lists, remember to set aside at least a little bit of time each day to relax. It might be a challenge, but try not to sweat the small stuff, and instead put that energy toward some well-deserved self-care.

LIBRA

libra

As a Libra, you’re constantly seeking balance, but you hate change and are prone to analysis paralysis. To help with that Libran indecision, get into the habit of making pros and cons lists. It’s a great way to put your natural skills in logic to good use, and can help you feel more confident about your choices.

SCORPIO

scorpio

As one of the most emotional signs, you can sometimes let your feelings get the best of you in the forms of jealousy and secrecy. In the new year, make sure your friends and family know that you care about them. Whether it’s a trip, a gift, or quality time, go out of your way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you.

SAGITTARIUS

sagitarious

Being the most adventurous sign, a Sagittarius longs for freedom and exploration. Feed that restlessness by taking a trip this year to somewhere you’ve never been. Maybe it’s somewhere on another continent, or maybe it’s just the next town over, but find a place you’ve always wanted to check out to satisfy your constant wanderlust.

CAPRICORN

capricorn

Capricorns are disciplined and responsible, which makes you among the most reliable signs. In 2021, feel free to try something spontaneous! The best memories can be made from something unplanned, which might sound crazy to you. But if the opportunity to seize the moment presents itself, take it and you won’t regret it.

AQUARIUS

New Year’s Resolution

While you love helping others, you rarely express your own emotions. This year, try to open up a little by keeping a journal. Jotting down some thoughts from time to time could be cathartic for the feelings you tend to keep to yourself, and might be the first step in having an easier time relaying your emotions to others.

PISCES

New Year’s Resolution

The last New Year’s Resolution is for Pisces, They are among the most artistic signs. Is there an art project you’ve always dreamed of working on — maybe a painting, a short film, or an album? Make 2021 the year you make that dream a reality. You can tend to have your head in the clouds, but why not bring your fantasies to life through your art?

What do you think? Do you already have your resolutions all figured out for 2021?

People Came Together And Raised The Money To Help A Mexican Engineering Student Make It To NASA

@dvillegass / Twitter

There are a few moments when our dreams are actualized. For Daniela Villegas, that time is now. The Mexican engineering student earned a spot in a NASA program with her brains. Then, the community came together and raised the money she needed to follow her dream.

Daniela Villegas is a Mexican engineering student chasing her dreams.

Villegas is one of 60 people in the world chosen to participate in the International Air and Space Program. The program is a major educational opportunity for students in engineering and aerospace studies. Now that she has been chosen, it is time for her to pay the money in order to attend.

An online community came together and raised the money she needed to get to the NASA program.

What a wonderful moment for the young woman, and Mexicans everywhere. After all, when one of us succeeds, we all succeed. We are all here rooting for you, Daniela. You can do it, mija!

Villegas is bringing so much pride to Mexico and Mexicans around the world.

Daniela Villegas is studying mechatronics engineering, which is a specialized engineering field. Mechatronic engineering is where mechanical, electrical, computer and robotics engineering come together. Mechatronic engineers are the ones who help to create all of the smart technologies that we use almost every day to make our lives easier.

The TecNM – Instituto Tecnológico de Hermosillo student needs our help and we can make her dream happen.

TecNM – Instituto Tecnológico de Hermosillo is located in the middle of the state of Sonora. Villegas raised $3,500 to get to the program in Huntsville, Alabama, and any little bit helped. It also wouldn’t be bad if she raised more so she can fully enjoy her time in the program making the most out of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.
