Breaking Ñews: San Bernardino teenager addicted to Takis

by María Purísima on May 24, 2013 in El Now, Pocho Ñews Service

(PNS reporting from SAN BERNARDINO) Mary Hernandez has a problem: she’s addicted to Takis. The 17-year-old California cannot get enough of the spicy imported Mexican corn chips.

“She eats Takis all the time instead of real food,” lamented her mother Laura, while stirring a pot of beans. “She needs real food; look — she’s getting too skinny!”

Hernandez, a senior at San Bernardino High School, said her Takiphilia began when a friend offered her “just a little taste” behind the gym after school. She snuck a bite and has been madly munching away since.

“Look, I can stop whenever I want to — I just don’t want to, OK?” Hernandez told PNS.

But her mother disagrees.

“Sometimes she gets chorro and can’t stop complaining that her culo is on fire — what kind of a food does that to you? Plus, it’s annoying, there is red powder everywhere and there’s the constant crunching,” she said.

The Uptown family staged a fruitless intervention and is now considering seeking professional help for Hernandez.

I am an educator and a mother. I seen my students and my own children eating that unhealthy “snack’ es peor que churros con chile!
I never liked it. The Takis do not look right to me. It seems it has some kind of chemicals on it. My daughter herself was getting addicted to them, but I will began discipline her and she stopped.

Made a grammar mistake. No way to correct it?
I meant to say:
I began disciplining my daughter and she have stopped eating Takis ever since. She still eats them once in while but not as often as before. She, too, had stopped eating real food.

“Sometimes she gets chorro and can’t stop complaining that her culo is on fire” I literally cried from laughing so hard at that line. Thank you!
