The Potato Chip Post

So lets discuss potato chips today..... shall we.
Cause... um....  
Who doesn't like potato chips...right?
Well I know I do....
And if I'm honest...
The potato chip has always "been there for me"...
In fact I remember growing up...


...with night after night of that "amazingly filling"
...potato chip casserole!! Mmm!


Yep... and I fondly remember getting all those "potato chip puzzles" each and every Christmas...


My favorite was this one... 
Thanks again dad!!


Ah good times...
But alas the chip was more than just fun comfort food...
It was a friend too..


Always entertaining me during church....


And then in my college years.... 
...it became more of an "adult snack"..
Always there...
Always helping me set the mood.....

With some sexy Pringle can sounds...

And then helping me bring the ensuing romance to a new kind of....
"Oily level?" ...


But whatever.... 
Enough about me...
Obviously I enjoy the potato chip..


Now sure..... probably not as much as Cindy below....


...who loved chips so much she made this costume!!!
and...
 Quickly regretted it...
You see it sent "entirely the wrong message"!!!


But costumes are not what chips are about.
The potato chip was designed to be "a snack of beauty"....


Just ask Kate Middleton...
Who apparently enjoys wearing weird "potato chip hats?
Whats that about?


Or there's this lady....
...who uses the empty potato chip bags...
...but as bows? Brilliant!!
Or this next lady...
Who literally took chips (and dip) to the next level!!!


The "My lice were hungry" level!!

uh...

Im not proud of that joke...


Lets move on...


Lets get back to the "potato chips"...
Cause for me... chips are all about the different flavors...


From enjoying the spices of BBQ flavor.... 
To appreciating the zing of Sour Cream and Onion...
To liking that cheesy goodness in Nacho Cheese flavor.... 
To desperately trying to understand...
.... what the hell is the "Cool" part in the Cool Ranch?


Whatever...
I have lived a life with no "chip complaints"...
I live happy with my current understanding of potato chip flavors being what they are...


But all that recently changed..
 You see..... I was at the store and came across these!!


Yep....BLT chips!!!...
So I had to try them... of course!!
And... they were ok... but kinda weird....
I think it was the "lettuce flavoring" that threw me?


So I raced home...
And according to some quick internet research....
I realized!!!
Potato chip flavors have gotten OUT OF CONTROL!!


Their were HUNDREDS of new flavors I hadn't tried!!!
So I skipped (dont judge) to my nearest "dollar store".....
And bought up the weirdest ones...
And ate em...
And I feel compelled to review the 10 best below....
Enjoy...


First up we have....
#10 Hot Dog
My review.... "Not very good"




And then #9 (and you have to look close)...
 Hot Chili Squid flavor!!!
My review "Horrifying!!"


#8 Roast Ox
My review "Shockingly chewy?"


#7 Octopus!!
My review "Really? Why would you make that?"




#6 Cajun Squirrel
My review "Come on!! This is so horrible!!"




#5 Prawn Cocktail
My review "Well... I guess its better than Tuna Mayo Chips...."


....which actually exist.... but I left off the list because of
"All the vomiting" they caused me!!




#4 Intense Pickle
My review "Maybe great for pregnant women...

 but for me.... mind-blowingly awful!!"




#3 Sloppy Joe...
My review "Dont judge... I kinda liked this one"




And #2 Caesar Salad
My review "Ahhh... All I can still taste is the anchovies!!!"




And finally #1 HAGGIS chips?
Sheep organ chips???? Seriously??
Which I reviewed only as...
   "They made me wish my tongue could vomit!!"


And that's it for today...
Im officially on a potato chip break...
But for you all...
Chip responsibly...
And blog ya'll later

  7. Wait a second, hold on, just a minute, Intense Pickle is no good!?! Blasphemy to all pickle products everywhere, neigh to all pickled anythings, NO! That's blasphemy to all humanity to make a sub-par pickle product!
    And you, YOU wouldn't try Haggis Chips? Come on. Where's your sense of oral adventure?
    (I also had no problem with the hungry lice joke.)

  8. Dude seriously, don't be knocking the prawn cocktails. I don't like the taste of prawns, but I do love those chips. I remember when there were three flavours, then there were six or seven, but now there is hundreds. If they can turn it in to a flavour they're going to mix it with chips.

  11. Where the heck did you find all these chip flavors? I too have noticed that flavors have gotten out of control but you have picked up some pretty intense flavors! Please share your store of choice because I need to see some of these for myself!

  12. We've got all kinds of meat flavored chips over here in Taiwan too. Although I believe they use the same flavor for bbq and teriyaki chicken.
