My boss, who lives in the US, came up to our office to work for the week and brought up the deliciousness that are Lays Chicken and Waffles potato chips. Mmmm, mmm, delicous. Americans sure know how to do snacks right!

Oh god, serious?  I bought a bag for shits & giggles and it gave me more of the former than the latter.  Ok, not really, but I didn't like them very much.  Way too sweet.  The best review that me and my family could muster was "well, at least the flavor is subtle enough that you don't mind the bad taste that much."

Next month she's bringing up Cheesy Garlic Bread chips. Can't wait!

Up in Canada our "novelty flavours" included the abomination called Grilled Cheese and Ketchup. More than one person in the office agreed that they tasted exactly like vomit.

It's hard to find restaurant spaces large enough to house roaming moose for you to hunt.

er..yeah,they come with a little blue bag of salt





EDIT:
not individual crisp though,you open the bag get the little blue bag and open that and pour the salt in and then grasp the bag closed at the top and shake it up..and then eat,lot of messing around and not even sure if they are still sold(maybe the Smiths Salt and Shake have been replaced by the Walkers bag above)

I think Ready Salted used to be called 'Plain' crisps,but all those regulations came in and they had to 'tell' people that there was salt in their product

Fascinating!  Reminds me of the margarine dye here in the States back in the 50s.  There was some regulation or something that prevented margarine companies from making their product the same tasty color as real butter, so they ended up packaging yellow dye with the margarine so you could add the butter color yourself.

The high amount of plastics and preservatives in all that margarine we ate really upped our life expectancy.  The 1930s were awful, by the way.

Yeah, Canada does have some rather exotic chip flavours. The President's Choice brand seems to have a lot of odd ones, including Beer flavour. Yeah, no thanks. Others under that same brand include: Chipotle Ranch, Jamaican Jerk Chicken, Sweet Chili Thai, Ballpark Hot Dog, Greek - Feta, Olive and Oregano, Baby Back Ribs, Tandoori Barbecue, Spicy Piri Piri, Szechwan, and General Tao Chicken.
