Yeah. There may even be a thread about poutine around here.

So would you mind boxing up those new flavors and sending them to the American members of the board?
I could do it if I'm able to find enough of all four flavours based on how many people actually want them. In my experience, stores all seem to have 1 or 2, but not all four. But shipping... shipping across the border SUCKS so bad.

But I could throw in some Old Dutch ketchup chips, too.

Re: Potato chips and other snacks - reviewed

Personal top 4 Potato Chip-like items, I'm a simple man:
4. Cape Cod Original- still the best kettle chip. Simple, salty, potato-y.
3. Pringles Sour Cream & Onion - not too sweet, just the right tang. The perfect SC&O chip.
2. Lay's Original - the best regular old potato chip. Often copied, never equalled. I think they use a custom potato cultivar for these chips.
1. Ruffles Sour Cream and Cheddar - basically crack to me. Oily, sloppy goodness oozing out of its so so tasty pores. This is the nuclear weaponry of chips.

Re: Potato chips and other snacks - reviewed

I really like these ones



They are Canadian and I'd have them when I go over to Windsor or Toronto or had a friend from Canada visit. I've seen them in stores in the US and Quizno's locations, but they are Frito Lay branded and don't taste the same. I'm not sure if the ones in Canada are also Frito Lay now.

And now I need to seek out these chips if they are still being made. Mrs. Vickies Balsamic Vinegar and Sweet Onion

http://www.missvickies.ca/en/prod-balsamic.php

For local chips, these ones are pretty good especially with a good chip dip.

Re: Potato chips and other snacks - reviewed

Of the 4 votes here in the States the only really good one is the Ginger Wasabi flavor.

The Capucino doesn't taste like coffee at all and just tastes like sweetened cinnamon.

The Bacon mac and cheese doesn't have enough taste.

Mango tastes like old perfume.

Poutine is a flavour that would do well here but it needs to have a better name like
cheese and gravy or something.

I think it's actually like "tsaht" rather than "tat."

Accent is on the second syllable.

That's disappointing since I didn't like the Lays version of Mrs Vickies in the states. The package simply said sea salt & vinegar instead of Sea Salt & Malt Vinegar.

They changed something from what I remember them tasting like when I had them in the past in Canada. I'll have to try a bag sometime.. I did see another flavor that looked good chili & sour cream I think it was.

That's the one nice thing about the area I'm at, its like a 45 minute drive to Windsor, with good bridge traffic that is.

Re: Potato chips and other snacks - reviewed

I'm still dumbfounded that an adult make can go his whole life without having eaten a Gyro/Shawarma/Doner Kebab. I mean, not only is it one of the most delicious and satisfying sandwiches in the world (when done right), it's pretty much ubiquitous around the fucking world - one of the only sandwiches that is available on every continent and almost every country.

Be interested how you conducted this demographic survey.

Re: Potato chips and other snacks - reviewed

While i've had a gyro before (and even then only a couple times), i had never even heard of shawarma until I saw it on the Avengers. Doesn't seem to crazy that someone wouldn't seek out Greek food.

The only difference between a gyro and a shawarma is that the cut of the meat is a little different, otherwise, same exact meat and flavor.

And it's not just "Greek", these sandwiches are indigenous to pretty much every middle-eastern and Mediterranean country/culture, whom brought it with them to every place they reside, all over the world. It's more common around the world than pizza - would you think it's normal if someone never had pizza?

I've been to Istanbul (home of the shawarma), but the best one I had was in Paris.

I'm going to venture a guess that pizza is significantly more common in the United States or North America then Mediterranean food, so it's popularity in other parts of the world isn't as relevant given the members here. Hell, if it wasn't for seeing Daphne's Greek Cafe pop up in the last decade I probably would have never had a gyro until more recently (since my brother's wife is Turkish).

I'm dumbfounded that you would be dumbfounded about this.
