One of our fellow bloggers, Georgina, sent me a
package from Great Britain full of all kinds of
potato chips, or 'crisps' as she would call them!
While I had the whole family here for dinner
last night, we had a chip tasting party!
The triplets love potato chips, but interestingly enough,
since they didn't recognize the packaging or names,
they didn't want to try any!
But that was ok with the rest of us, because if they
had wanted to, they could have scarfed down the whole
bunch before we had a chance to taste any! ha.
We don't have any chips flavored with Langoustines (European lobster) lemon and dill!
And we'd never had Scottish chips flavored
with haggis and cracked black pepper!
We did recognize the Lays brand, of course, but
we don't have any Lays flavored like Bolognaise!
There were Swiss Cheese flavored sticks, kind of like
Crunchy Cheetos and Snacketti which were
puffy "lovely salted hearts".
And how about puffed kangaroo shaped Chio Jumpys seasoned with sunny paprika....
or Fritelle Bacon potato sticks?
Surprisingly, the overall favorite was the
Guinness Burts Thick Cut Chips.
I was the only one that liked the Langoustine and Lauren was the only
one that liked the Haggis flavored chips.
The men seemed to like the spicy and bacon flavors.
We all agreed that it was very fun and entertaining to
see what kind of chips there are across the pond!
Who would have thought they would be so different
from all of the brands we have here!
Here's all the flavors with their complete names...
- Benenuts Fritelle, Gout Bacon
- Chio Jumpys, Sunny Paprika
- Burts Thick Cut Hand Cooked Guinness Potato Chips
- M & S Scottish Langoustines with Dill & Lemon Hand Cooked Crisps
- Zweifel Snacketti Hearts, Lovely Salted
- Mackie's of Scotland Haggis & Cracked Black Pepper Potato Crisps
- Berlin Croustilles, Gout Emmental
- Levi Roots Reggae Reggae Groove Cut Crisps
- Lays Saveur Bolognaise
- Benenuts 3-D Bugles Gout Fromage
So, thank you so much Georgina!
Hey, did you know that Georgina has an entire blog
dedicated to critiquing potato chips?
You should give her a little visit!
And Georgina, we all thought it would be a lot of fun
to return the favor and send you a box of American
potato chips! So if you're game, email me your
shipping address! And if you've ever heard of a
kind of crisp you'd like to try, let me know and
I'll be sure to add it to the box!
