Crisp Choices

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.

Oh goodie you tried them! So not quite the "you can't eat just one" results.

I'm just so proud of you all giving them a try though. You really are a brave bunch. Good for you.

I couldn't agree with you more- they have the weirdest flavors of chips! I have found a few I like though- have you tried the Lime and Coriander chutney pompadours? They are quite good!

I did a similar post on my blog a while back about chip flavors here.
