    Or as we call them, Crisps.

    Yes, they are real.

    I LOVE experimenting with new chip flavors -
    I have to say, this would be the wildest ever, if I could find it here.

    Try Ebay Terry... The shipping is a little high for a small bag of chips, but perhaps worth it to try something we can't get here. :)

    Well, I will tell you what, for any TFF that keen to try them, I will try to arrange it. I know someone going Stateside in the next month or so, just PM an address, work if not happy about home on a PM, and I promise to try. :)

    Tranter, a most generous offer, and THANK YOU for making it.

    Let me look around a bit, though, as this has now become a challenge -
    Might try the Crispy Duck & Hoisin too.
    I see Walkers is owned by Frito Lay -

    THANK you, for opening up a new group of flavors for me -

    Mmm, salt & vinegar chips are my favorite. Do you put vinegar on chips (fries) in the UK, or is that just a Canada thing?

    Yes pinecone we put vinegar on our chips (fries). :)

    And yes Charlie, I remember Hedgehog crisps, wonder why they never caught on? :D

    Does anyone remember Arthur Treacher's?
    Fish and Chips, British style, and the wrapper was printed up like the London Times.
    Very good with Malt Vinegar.
    I haven't seen one in DECADES.

    Arthur Treacher's Fish & Chips are still around, I've seen them on my travels. There was at least one local when I was growing up, I think it may have burned down.

    Hope it wasn't one of those terrible 'friction fires'!

    I can't stand it. I have to ask, Do they really taste like squirrel/hedgehog?
    not to sound gullible or anything.

    Not wishing to disillusion anyone, but I have never eaten squirrel or hedgehog, and am in no hurry to do so. (Though I do shoot squirrels year round here). So basicly, I dont know.

    I can say they taste horrible...
