While Americans like chips that are seasoned with sour cream and chive, barbecue, or cheddar cheese, the Brits like to roll the flavor of a whole dish onto their chip like prawn cocktail or roast chicken or steak and onion. Walkers Crisps which are as prevalent as Lays potato chips in the U.S. have launched a campaign to try out some new flavors. My friend L had sent me an U.S. news article that I first thought was a joke. It said that Walkers was selling a new chip that was called Cajun squirrel. I found them in the store today and bought a bag. All three of us tried them and we gave the flavor a thumbs down. Here’s a link to the website so you can see how crazy the flavors are.
