Nachos & You: Living Your Life The Nacho Way

$2,185

129

I, like I'm sure you, have been eating nachos for years, and I, like I'm sure you, love them something fierce. However, my love for them was such that three years ago I started the website Nachonomics in order to spread the good word about the tastiest of foods. Now, a website is all well and good, but what happens when your love of nachos is greater than what can be contained on the internet? What happens when you can only feel complete by living your life the nacho way?

Enter Nachos & You, a pocket sized manual on, well, living your life the nacho way.

  • LEARN... To pickle your own jalapenos for varying degrees of “fun” and “profit”, but more importantly bragging rights on being more artisinal than your friends.
  • KNOW... The science of creating nachos with circular chips as opposed to triangular chips and when to use each so as to not cause embarrassing cultural faux pas.
  • EXPERIENCE... The terror of “Nacho Fingers”, and the joy of curing yourself of them to avoid being ostracized by the community at large.

While our previous book, The Field Guide to Nachos,was all about the history of nachos, Nachos & You isall about nachos today and in the future, as well as how you can live your lifeone chip at a time. Part self help book, part treatise on nacho theory, partcookbook, part employee handbook, the only true way to describe it is that thisis a book about not only nachos, but Nachos & You.

 NACHOS & YOU -

A 32 page pocket sized manual on all the nacho etiquette,science, theory, and ways to live your life. You may think that you know athing or two about nachos, but there are more than one or two things to knowabout nachos, and this will definitely teach you more of them.

THE GENTLEMAN NACHOS SHIRT -

First pass at Gentleman Nacho.
First pass at Gentleman Nacho.

Straight from the gift shop comes these T-Shirts featuring aGentleman Nacho! So dapper, so gentlemanly, so nacho. With him on your chestyour classiness will instantly increase 10 fold.

"BIENVENIDOS A PIEDRAS NEGRAS!" POST CARDS, SEASON TWO -

Back by popular demand comes season two of the popular“Bienvenidos a Piedras Negras!” series of post cards. Did you like the onesfrom The Field Guide to Nachos project? Yeah, well these ones will be even morenacho.

 

 

PLUS REWARD, THE NACHO FUN PACK -

If you’re new to the nacho scene and missed out on our previous nacho project, The Field Guide to Nachos, don’t you fret none now. By choosing a reward with a nacho fun pack you can catch up with all the sweet loot you missed out on including:

A copy of The Field Guide to Nachos,

An entire set of the first season of “Bienvenidos a Piedras Negras!” post cards,

And a Piedras Negras Nachos T-Shirt. It’s the perfect way to round out your nacho collection.

LIMITED EDITION 10x10 HARDCOVER COFFEE TABLE EDITION OF “NACHOS & YOU” -

Pictured here is the limited 10x10 Hardcover Coffee TableEdition of The Field Guide to Nachos, which is pretty much whatthe 10x10 Hardcover Coffee Table Edition of Nachos & You will look like, only it won’t belimited to only 3 copies. Sure, it won’t fit in your pocket, but it will lookdignified on your coffee table and bring an air of class and distinction toyour room. It may even have some extra material not available in the regularedition of Nachos & You.

 So due to the amazing vagaries of the United States Postal Service where packages get shipped based off of a mystical size and weight system, it looks like the price to ship things in certain packages is nil, so with that fact we can now add on extra sets of "BIENVENIDOS A PIEDRAS NEGRAS!" postcards to any order, or extra shirts and books to orders over $30! Just add the amount of the item you want to your pledge and when we send out the surveys you'll be able to select your add-ons!

 

 

 

So if this project somehow gets more than the asked for cash dollars, what will be done with the extra cash? Well, good thing plans are in motion to make Nachos & You even better!

UNLOCKED! - GENTLEMAN NACHO STICKER!

In addition to the T-Shirts there are also some stickers thatwe found that we will be proud to offer you. Every order of $9 or more will geta little Gentleman Nacho sticker to stick wherever the urge compels you.

UNLOCKED! - BUMPER STICKERS!

What better way to show your mobile love for nachos than a Gentleman Nachos bumper sticker? Proudly proclaim to the world to “Be the Nachos you Want to See in the World” wherever your respective vehicle with room for a bumper sized sticker may go. Included in every order of $39 or more!

UNLOCKED! - TWO COLORED NACHOS & YOU!

Nachos & You printed in one color isn't cool. You know what's cool? Nachos & You printed in TWO colors. Forget black and white, allow me to introduce you to black and white and YELLOW all over. Ideally red all over as well, I mean read. Yes folks, your limited edition will come in two colors, which you rightly deserve being so awesome as to back and all. Whether future "regular" editions will come as such, we don't know. Do you think they deserve it?

  • $2,250 - LOCKED - NACHO TRADING CARDS: Do you remember when back in the day Topps released a series of Nacho Trading Cards? No? Well, I don’t know how you could possibly have forgotten, but to jump your memory we’ll throw some in every order of $16 or more. Trade with your friends! Collect them all!
  • $2,500 - LOCKED - GENTLEMAN NACHO BUTTONS: Oh yeah, we also have some Gentleman Nacho buttons too, because sometimes you want something like a sticker but want to be able to move it to various articles of clothing you own. Every order of $16 or more will get one of these bad boys.

 

As aforementioned, I've been a nacho fan for decades and writing about nachos for Nachonomics for the past three years. You can check us out there, like us on Facebook, follow on Twitter, pledge on Patreon, watch on YouTube, do whatever it is you do with Google+, you know, all that social stuff. I also previously wrote The Field Guide to Nachos, was featured on Kickstarter for it, and had a nice interview with the local paper. And there's the whole Doctorate in Nachonomics from Miskatonic University as well.

Also we're totally behind the Kicking It Forward movement, because Kickstarter has a ton of awesome stuff, and even if nachos aren't your bag you should totally back SOMETHING on here.

Risks and challenges

This would be the second book backed through Kickstarter after last year's successful creation of "The Field Guide to Nachos" and have got the whole "produce a book about nachos" thing down pat. As of now the book is mostly written and we have a printer and those are the main things with putting a book together. Now granted, we had all this last time and ultimately had to get a different printer, but we're using the same one we ultimately used for the last book and have been very pleased with their work. At this point the money will be going to making the art and formatting the book, then we send it to the printers and a few weeks later we're good to go. Easy Cheesy.

As for being qualified to write about nachos, I suggest you check out Nachonomics.com for three years of nacho facts and wisdom.
