World's WORST Potato Chips...
Reaganite Republican ^ | March 15, 2012 | Reaganite Republican

Posted on 03/15/2012 7:58:47 AM PDT by Reaganite Republican


Answer to a question nobody (ever) asked



MEGA-Burger!





Octopus- 
those ought to stay-down
well after a long night's drinking




aka 'Louisiana Road-Kill'


Can't I just get my hotdog next to the chips
-like in the picture?




Kiwi-
flavored... why



And do my fellow Yanks know what HAGGIS consists of...?
(hint: makes 
Tijuana street-purchased chorizo look like prime rib)

The burger chips don’t sound so bad.

We were endlessly amused by the chip flavors we found when we visited China last summer. eg. Duck Soup flavored chips.

I eat shrimp flavored chips all the time. Not so bad with a beer. Very bad with 6 beers.

Odd-flavored chips are very popular in Britain.
My daughter brought me back a selection from London.
Quite good really.
Much more imagination in this than we see in the US.

Lamb & Mint refers to the mint jelly often used with a nice lamb meal.

But I still prefer ketchup with my lamb.

I don't eat potato chips any more and haven't for a long time. They ALL taste lousy.

When good animal fats to fry and cook with were banned by the food-nazis, all the good snacky stuff became gone forever. This includes the canned cashew nuts I loved, plus other treats too numerous to mention.

I used to snarf a whole small luncheon bag of chips at a sitting....now, just one or two bites of ANY brand make me barf.

Yes it is

I have spent some time on mainland Europe, and particularly the Germans had GREAT chips... cheese/onion, garlic, and such with quite natural flavoring, wonderful

Some of these British ones, tho... I dunno, man

Haggis?

LOL, yes, not good.

We loved the Chinese food in general though. Except they never take the bones out of anything. Kind of annoying eating around the chopped up chicken bones.

From an article about Walkers chip flavors:

He said: "This gentle Cajun flavouring will be delicious for the public and although the idea might sound bizarre, it really works. No squirrels were harmed in the making of these crisps!"

So this is some type of mock squirrel? Or did they get the squirrel flavor from the squirrels without harming them?

Those flavors are nauseating. I eat Gibbles Chips. They are one of the few that are still cooked in LARD.

Octopus, squid and shrimp chips should only be eaten with Singha beer.

“And do my fellow Yanks know what HAGGIS consists of...?”

I do, it consists largely of the ‘pluck’ from a sheep, ie the heart, lungs, liver etc minced up with spices and oats. Which is significantly better than what you’ll find in most hot dogs. . . . . :)

When I was a kind growing up in Cleveland in the 60s/70s, they still had home-delivered “Charles Chips” (like the milkman, which we still had up to ‘68)

The chips were GREAT and came in round, returnable brown tin with gold letters, so their trucks looked like UPS

Never had Gibble’s... PA only I assume

The old Charles Chips tin cans are a staple at all flea markets and swap meets in the NE.

We had that in Florida, as well, when I lived there back in the late 70s. Especially loved the Chocolate-covered pretzels.

Lays Classic....undercooked whitebread PC chips that have been decolesterolized, defatted, decooked and deeeeeee-not-licious.

I remember them back when - golden BROWN in some cases, even some a little over cooked...now all you see is undercooked slightly yellow papp - all because they think cooking them right causes cancer......ugh!

“Odd-flavored chips are very popular in Britain.”

I agree. I once had a bag of British chips that were Turkey Dinner flavored. They were amazing. You could actually taste the turkey, gravy and stuffing in the seasoning.

Naaa...just go out in the backyard. You don’t need any country store for that.

Fried squirrel, biscuits and gravy is one fine meal!

OMG! LOL! I’ve wondered about the Charles Chips for the last few days when I stumbled upon the “inventor of chips” and it got me thinking and reading. Mention was made of packaging and I thought of my mother’s pictures of parties in the ‘50s and them holding “Charles Chips” tins up! Wondered what happened to them.

“Never had Gibble’s... PA only I assume”

Yeah, Gibble’s is around here in MD. PA really know chips. We get to have almost all their brands being so close.

What IS weird though is a certain central PA brand. Very strange - never heard of it until meeting my husband. Every person in that area (not sure just how small it is) is obsessed with HARTLEY’S POTATO CHIPS. Every store/restaurant must sell them, often to the detriment of any other brand. The original are kettle-cooked and kind of thick.

Turns out the Hartley’s who created these are relatives of my husband’s.

They’re actually not my cup of tea. I don’t mind them, but there’s something a bit bitter - musky? - about them. I like their texture but not much on flavor.

1 brand we discovered (I knew they’ve been around for years, just never really tried them much) is MARTIN’S. OMG. My husband loves their original kettle-cooked and I love the ripples. Great texture AND flavor.

Also good is the Cape Cod - guess where the guy who started that “studied”? LOL.

Haggis? Yes...once a year to celebrate the birth of Robbie Burns. But always with lots of single malt scotch to wash it down.

It is actually very tasty. Faintly like a British banger (a breaded sausage). Never made it myself and have no idea what it smells like during preparation, but can't imagine it's any worse than chitlins. Look up your nearest Burns Supper for next January 25. Goes down fine with a good single malt.

Golden Flake used to make a cheeseburger potato chip, it was awesome. Bit like a dill/mustard/onion with a hint of smoke and cheese flavor.

You can find Gibbles in FL too. Search the smaller grocery chains. We found Jay’s (a Midwest brand) at Big Lots. I was shocked to find a large chili-cheese Fritos in FL the other day, looks like they’re finally stocking those to this region.

When I travel, I like to find regional chips with unusual flavors. I moved to MD in 2010 and really love the PA chip companies. Herr’s has me blown away. Baby Back Ribs, KC Steakhouse and best of all, Cheddar and Horseradish.

Utz sells Chesepeake Bay crab chips. My wife dared me, so I did. I don’t know if they taste like crab or Chesepeake Bay, but they were pretty good.
