Chips around the world

Chips around the world

Hey everyone, welcome back to my travel and tourism blog. I was just down at the corner store/pharmacy/supermarket to pick up a bag of chips and I was distressed to find that my beloved Lays chips were no longer sold there. Most people around the world know the friendly banner of lays and their brightly coloured bag, but the different flavours that you get in various countries would surprise you. I have found nori seaweed, honey, and New York steak flavoured chips in Asia. In Europe, I found some paprika, cucumber and guacamole, and this very strange flavour called Texas popcorn.

Of course there are some strange flavours where I come from as well. I was born in Canada, and my favourite chip flavour from back home is called all dressed. This is a combination of barbeque, ketchup, sour cream and onion, and salt and vinegar. These chips are almost exclusively sold in Canada, but I hear you can now buy them in some areas of the US. A few years ago LAys even held a contest called Do Us a Flavour; a contest where people suggested favour combinations with the winners being Creamy Garlic Caesar, Perogy Platter, Grilled Cheese & Ketchup, and Maple Moose. Maple Moose was kept on the market for about a year before they did the contest again and choose Bacon Poutine, Cinnamon Bun, Jalapeño Mac n' Cheese, and Tzatziki as the finalists.

What chip flavours do you miss from back home when you are travelling, or what chips from a different country do you miss when you are back home? Let me know in the comments section and who knows, if you try hard enough you might be able to order some of your favourites chips online. Have a great day everyone, talk to you soon.
