In the battle for weirdest potato chip flavors, France pulls ahead

Cheeseburger and Pepperoni Pizza flavored Lays

It’s a cold wet day in Paris and all I want is to curl up in bed with some comfort food. Might have to give these tempting delicacies a try! Then again, I’m going back to the states tomorrow for a long weekend. Maybe I should just hold out for the real thing (as in ACTUAL potato chips, cheeseburgers, and pepperoni pizza). Of course I could always go for more exotic European flavors like kebab or braised chicken chips, though I don’t think they really constitute comfort food.

Kebab and Braised Chicken flavored chips

What about just some simple salt and vinnies? Or more daringly, honey mustard flavored? God I can’t wait to get back to the states! The land of normal potato chips!

    That’s why the British chips are flooding the market…French people secretly do not want poulet flavoured chips.

      I suppose “crisps” are still better than kebab french chips!

    A land without salt n’ vinnies?!?!?! My survival rate would be minimal- especially when hungover. At least Amsterdam is close by with a Vleminckz Friet fix (although I might need to bring my own American Ketchup!) My question is have you found a good European cookie yet?

      Just one. At le Bon Marché. And it’s just the way a cookie should be. Sweet, a little salty, chunky chocolate, firm but chewy. Amazing!!! Otherwise they are all either hard biscotti-like disks or simply flattened-out raw dough.

    Try Burts ‘Bloody Mary’ flavoured crisps or I think they do langoustine…but I think that is slightly taking the piss!
