Chips and Crisps

I like chips and crisps.

In the UK; Walkers Cheese & Onion, Tyrells Sea Salt (bit posh).

In Taiwan; Hsien Shrimp Chips

Let me knows yours please, so I can try and compare. :thumbsup:

I get Kettle Crisps, crushed black pepper flavour, when I’m in the UK. I eat them with silverware and a napkin, though. Here, its pea crackers all the way, baby.

Lay’s ready salted. With home made guacamole dip.

bag of noodles, the instant kind. smash em up before opening and eat em dry. addictive.

Lays seaweed flavour in the wan in the uk it was walkers cheese & onion

sort of related but I always liked Brannigans at home but on my last few visits to the UK they seemed to have disappeared

we like

Australia: Smith’s and Thins both Sour Creme and BBQ
Taiwan: 7 brand chips for lunch sometimes - all but the plum flavor , and some of the US brands…

Still about mate. Think Walkers did a Cheese & Branston Pickle crisp.

I used to like Wheat Crunchies when I was a kid.

Rice crackers
Goldfish Original

not that I’m especially especially into them, but been noticing the odd pack of Burts in FamilyMart lately. Only seen Sweet Chilli (and Smoky Bacon, but that’s ‘meat’ :no-no:), but I’m buying them all up in the hope that The Mart get more in, and eventually get around to stocking Salt and Vinegar :thumbsup:.

I’m going to my nearest Family Mart in the morning to help out with the growing popularity or Burts in Taiwan :thumbsup:

I kind of like those Burts ones. If you look on the back of the pack, you’ll even find the actual name of the guy who fried them.

Apparently.

Good crisps, though, despite the gaucheness.

Really? I’ve thrown all the packets away. Have to go buy some more then :whistle:.

You can sometimes pick up salt and vinegar Burts in the supermarkets around Tianmu. They are really tasty.

I was actually happy that the chip situation was so crap when I got here because I used to eat too many back in the day. When I first arrived the Cadina (sp?) Steak Sauce brand was the best one, but now Lays Regular and Swiss Cheese provide that nice Western flavor that was so sorely lacking (along with Doritos in the red bag).

Back home though, I enjoy myself all the classics:

Salt and Vinegar, BBQ, Ketchup, Dill Pickle, Sour Cream and Onion, Sour Cream and Bacon, Cool Ranch Doritos etc… A lot of people are all into these thicker kettle chip and small company ‘handcrafted’ chips, but lets be real, its all shit, so why dress it up, stick to the classics.

I’ll grab a bag every time I go by Wellman’s in Tianmu, luckily I am not around there too much.

Oh yeah, Pringles give me gut rot, haven’t been able to eat them in about ten years.

Ready salted is the socialist’s choice.
I like a good pack of Conservative Cheese and Onion if I am passing by an ethnically enhanced newspaper outlet.
If I go real shopping, though, I’ll grab some Tyrell’s. I love them, but they break into shards and stab that bit of space between the gum and your molars, resulting in some mild but muffled swearing.
Brannigan’s roast beef and mustard is actually the closest you can get to having a cooked cow and some mustard in a bag, and therefore gets my overall vote. I. like Funk500, haven’t seen them for a very long time.
If I have to eat crisps in Taiwan, before the appearance of Eddie at Burnts, I usually leant towards the unconventionally packaged stacked variety. A tube of Pringle’s sour cream and onion does the job, although I usually end up wishing I hadn’t bought them. They are the closest I will ever come to buying fashionable knitwear.
