Everyone knows it: Canadians are nice, sensible and use the force only for the common good. But, there is a darker side to this country, hidden away in the aisles of ordinary supermarkets. I present thee Canada, the Land of the Weird Potato Chip.
Dill Pickle, Roast Chicken, Chips ‘n Gravy, Ketchup, and Bacon chip to mention a few hideous flavors. The jalapeño ones are not strange, I thought I was taking a photo of the Marmite flavored ones.
You might wonder why I have a bone to pick with such a random thing like a potato chip, the pinnacle of First World Problems. Let boys be boys, and potato chips be potato chips; I don’t have to buy the awful flavors, right? Wrong. In every social event where chips are served, there is a moment when an innocent looking bowl of chips calls my name, ready to strike with horrendousness.
On the surface, these killer chips look just like normal chips, and even the chicken flavored bag looks almost identical to the regular salted one. Actually, the only reason I’m writing about this is that I have almost bought the chicken chips by accident a few times and I am convinced that the potato chip industry is trying to kill me by taste shock. Though I have heard rumors that the UK, Japan and Korea might have even more “interesting” flavors, but in my book this is, without a doubt, the dark side of Canada.
(Hooray, now I have written about crackers and potato chips. I can already feel the “writer of the year”-crown being lifted on top of my oddly oval head :-))
