SPIFFY PACKAGING



So, I'm not a huge potato chip fan. Since I try to be healthy, I typically don't buy the full fat chips but I don't like fake food so I buy the all natural reduced fat chips. And, for SOME unknown reason, no company makes salt and vinegar in a reduced fat chip. Can someone explain this to me? There is no fat in vinegar and chips already have salt so...um....hello? I did recently get a craving for chips after watching Larry David eat them in an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm (yes, Chris says I'm very influenced by what I see, so hello advertisers, i'm your target market!)

Needless to say, when I saw this packaging for Hairy Bikers potato crisps, I was struck. How cool is it? But even more so, um, look at the flavors? Lemon and Olive Tagine! Prosciutto and blue cheese! Prawn with coconut! for real? Is this real real life?
Has anyone had these? I have never seen them around here, but I think they may change my mind, make me want chips and not care if they are reduced fat or not.

  5. This post is killing me! I love potato chips with a passion, as in I don't usually buy them because there is no such thing as half a bag of chips, there is an unopened bag or there is an empty bag. These flavors are absolute genius. I neeeeeeeed the prosciutto!

  9. I have never tried these particular chips, but I'm so drawn to the cute packaging! Just last week, I found a reduced fat salt and vinegar chip in Canada. I bought them. I then ate the whole bag. Needless to say, my mouth was RAW after that binge. I do not recommend doing this!

  12. Okay, I am drooling! Potato chips are my weakness...along with hot french fries. And I am just sitting here trying to comprehend what a proscuitto and blue cheese chip would taste like. I can only imagine delish! I do love the name - even though kinda scary, and the packaging!
