Amazing bags of flavourness a-hard-days-night-george-10 So good, in fact, it has it's own theme park

And oh God, Hershey's anything, I had Cheetos when I was in 9 in Spain would love to try them again, Twinkies, Reeses's, candy corn, Twizzlers, Tootsie Rolls...so much sugar :P

Cheese and Onion sounds interesting. We may have it, but I don't know. A popular flavor over here is Sour Cream and Onion chips/crisps. 

They now have, well they've actually had it for 10 years, Flaming Hot Cheetos. I prefer the original flavor though. 

We shall start The International Beatles Bible Food Exchange System. :D Anyone in? 

 

 

Ye don't have cheese and onion flavoured crisps??? :O I never knew that!

Interesting fact: Tayto invented flavoured crisps (the first flavour being salt and vinegar) before that crisps were plain flavoured. Also Halloween is an Irish invention, so ye owe the Irish a lot, remember that a-hard-days-night-george-10 Also we constructed the majority of the American railroads. Go Ireland :P

I am aware of that. a-hard-days-night-george-10 I'm proud to have Irish blood in me. ahdn_george_08

 

I agree, trcanberra, about the Burger King fry burger. The thought of them together sounds disgusting to me, but that maybe because too many months on the McDonald's french fry fryer when I was a teen. Keep 'em separate!

One "unofficial" thing some Americans do is put a whole bunch of potato chips ("crisps") on top of their hamburger -- after slathering on the ketchup or what not, but before capping the whole thing with the upper bun, as it were.  Biting into a juicy burger and having your teeth plow through a layer of potato chips is a special experience -- to be washed down with an ice cold Classic Coke, of course.

I don't know anybody who does that. French fries on a burger, yeah, but potato chips? It's pretty common for people to put potato chips on subs too.

I've never heard of potato chips on a burger nor a sub. I do like the onion ring that Carl's Jr. puts on the western burger.

I just woke up a few minutes ago (2:31 am) craving a pear. I'm glad there was one in the house.

As a child I used to put my crisps (usually salt and vinegar - still the best) on my cheese sandwiches. Apparently, if asked, I'd say ''it gives it crunch'' :D

Sounds revolting. Crisps do not get covered in mayo, tomato sauce or anything.

However, in France we found cheeseburger flavored Lay's potato chips. So delicious. Why won't they sell them in the US?

They do here in East Tennessee at our local Food City, so maybe it's a regional thing?

You have a lot interesting flavors we don't have, that's one of the first things that struck me on my first trip to England as a teen. Cheese and onion, tomato, beef, I think I saw shrimp flavor or something similiarly seafoody on that trip.

Our chip flavors have increasingly gotten fancier, and Lay's had a contest this year to vote on a new flavor. The choices were cheesy garlic, chicken and waffles and sriracha. I think cheesy garlic won and they're meh - not enough cheese or garlic. Not a big fan of sriracha, so I didn't try those. The chicken and waffles ones were sort of awful, and I normally like that combination. They tasted suspiciously like the existing sour cream and onion, but maybe with a hint of a chemical mapley sugar taste.

Lucky duck. Mom and I might have to take a road trip the next time I go to her house. I wonder how far east from Memphis we would have to travel to find a store that sells them?

Reading the Wiki article on regional flavors. I feel so cheated. They might as well have ended the section with "US flavors are boring."

^^ :D not boring, just ''traditional''

We have onion bhaji, cajun squirel, fish and chips... all sorts. The plainer ones are the best, though.

Oh and the shrimp ones are called Prawn Cocktail. Quite a mainstream flavour.

:-D When I went to the wiki article, I remembered the prawn cocktail one. Squirrel flavored potato chips? Now that's different.

I like the idea of turkey and stuffing. But it also reminds me of a local soda company we have called Jones. They make a holiday assortment that's highly collectible. One year, a friend bought the Thanksgiving collection of sodas and we had a tasting. That was... rank. The idea was definitely better seen and admired from afar than ingested.

I see they offered tofurkey flavored soda, to allude to a recent Paul thread.

I believe they started selling some chips called "Late Night Cheeseburger" a few years ago.

There used to be chocolate flavoured crisps as well as seaweed. Both were revolting.

 

One of the best things ever is a crispy morning roll filled with Golden Wonder cheese and onion crisps. A-flippin'-mazing. 

 

Walkers had a limited time vote for a new flavour of crisps either last year or the one before and all of them were stinking.

I love chocolate dipped potato chips. There used to be a small shop on the corner of the famous Hollywood and Vine known for that, and I miss it. And I hear Lay's is going to be introducing those here. I'll have to partake in moderation.

Yeah, I used to eat the chocolate covered pringles all the time. Don't remember them being too bad :)

Crinkled cut crisps (particularly Hunky Dorys which also taste like heaven in crisp form) are popular in sandwiches and salads in Ireland but mostly ready salted flavoured are used. Never had them before though...

Had Nik-Naks for the first time last year....to me they were disgusting, my other friend loves them though.

 

Also one to avoid is ketchup flavoured crisps, they're horrible, ghastly yokes
