New NeX store idea - Doritos and Tacos

After browsing through the NeX store, I noticed that we are missing two very important commodities to go along with our Exotic Dancers, Spiced Wine, and Spirits.

Doritos and Tacos.

Think about it. How many times have you had a few too many spirits (beer, vodka, absinthe, whatever), and had an incredible craving for tacos or Doritos? (or cold pizza, but thats usually the next morning)

Since CCP is constantly looking for ways to enhance their portfolio of NeX items, these items would fit in very well with capsuleers (after all, many other pilots carry spirits and exotic dancers in their cargo hold at all times), and also generate some new revenue.

Depends on how many AUR you how... and how much room your cargo hold has.

Perhaps if that NEX store allowed me to convert Aur (is that what I currently have 3000 of?) into an RL bottle of some unheard of, local bottle of Icelandic booze that was delivered to my home in the States I might be warm to this whole MT racket.

Just booze for thought.

If anyone ever looks at you and says,_ "Hold my beer, watch this,"_  you're probably going to want to pay attention.

This man is a genius, and an innovator.

I support this product and/or service.

Fix POSes.  Every player should want one (even if all players can't have one).

Hell, this could be a revenue stream for CCP beyond people buying it from them, since they could sell ad rights. "Pay us and we will sell a virtual version of your product in our game"

I might be going to Colombia - I've promised myself to get a bottle of Medellin rum to bring home...
Else you could also provide for interesting food to go with (spiced) wine, more upmarket and pricier than Tacos, on the shop.
Just a thought P

Those things doesn't exactly fit in with the story in EVE Online though. People came through the EVE gate, when it closed all civilizations collapsed and had to be rebuilt over tens of thousands of years, but somehow Doritos survived? Lol

Cyclic trends. Good ideas tend to happen again and again.

You can't tell me Doritos are not a good idea Bear

What about the items that can already be seen in the eve market, but not in the NEX?

....as if 10,058 Goon voices cried out and were suddenly silenced.
