Thanks to kakumei, who grabbed these on a recent trip to Canada:
“Why are Lay’s Dill Pickle flavoured Potato Chips a true taste tradition? Because no Canadian can resist the tangy taste of Dill Pickle and the fresh taste of Lay’s Potato Chips! It’s a “Dill-icious” flavour Canadians love!”
I know they’re just Lay’s, but they’re really good! Tangy, like sea salt & vinegar potato chips, but more subtly, and with more complex seasonings — exactly like a good dill pickle should taste. If you’ve got a classier brand I should try, let me know! Or better yet, tell me how I can get a fast hookup when the inevitable cravings hit.
On the Pringles front, it seems that in Brazil and Italy, one can acquire paprika-flavored crisps, while Germans can get their hands on a spring onion & feta(!) variety. I have to try that last one…
Someone needs to start an Amazon.com for snack foods!
[update (2005/02/15) — Tim’s has dill pickle chips too! And they’re good.]
I know it reads like all I’ve been writing about lately is food. There’s been a lot happening, honest! And I’ve got lots of other stuff to tell, too — I’ve just been waiting for things to settle down just enough so that I can sit down and organize my thoughts.
In the meantime, food isn’t all that bad, is it?
