Salt And Vinegar Chips

Mon Sep 20, 2004 10:16 am

Does anyone else like these things?

I personally love them, I get them all the time when I stop at the convenience store. The smell doesn't bother me either.

I know tons of others who hate them and hate the smell, so this is why I am asking to see if anyone else out there likes them??

I LOVE salt and vinegar chips!!!!!  Big thumbs up

Maybe it's because I'm from a British family, who knows. Still, they are my favorite kind, and the best brand is Tim's Cascade chips, which show the states of Oregon (for s&v, Oregon is light blue) and Washington on the front. I don't know if they're available nationwide, but if you can find them, try 'em! No, I don't work for the company.

Believe it or not, I've had better S&V chips here in the US than on my recent trip to UK!  Nuts

The first time I saw that kind of chips I was in Canada. They eat a lot of crazy things up there, so I wasn't too shocked by it. In this case I was repulsed at first, but learned to love them. Ever since, I have been eating them here in the States. I think they're good.

Freaking love them. Tim's potato chips...salt & vinny, greatest things ever. Oh yeah, nothing like a brautwurst, loaded with dijon, red cabbage 'kraut and a load of salt & vinegar chips. That's every Sunday watching the Seahawks game! (Except for last week, it was green chile stew, which is really good as well.)

I like, before you even have one, you open the bag and 'whoof' the smell of them, and instantly, the back of your tongue starts salivating and sides of you jaw tighten up just slightly...just waiting....getting ready. OH YEAH! Crap, I think I might have to go to the store soon!

Salt and Vinegar chips are addictive, lovely and gorgeous! My new favourite's along with them are Chilli chips. They're so cool!

We have a massive variety of chip flavours in Australia! It's great!

but luckily, there are some shops selling english imports. yum!

Not much of a fan of S&V chips, but I have a strange love of Dill Pickle flavored chips. I suppose they are pretty close to S&V just not as strong.

Thank you for educating us poor backward yokels  Wink/being sarcastic

The British do know that Americans call their crisps "chips". It's a source of constant amusement to both sides. Having said that, what we call chips is served with salt and vinegar just to complicate things

Anyway bollocks to salt and vinegar. They make the lining of my mouth sore. Walkers' Heinz Ketchup flavour are way better, or the mature cheddar and shallot I get from the supermarket.

I'm a fiend for salt and vinegar chips. Cape Cod, Zapps, and Schlotzskys are my favorites (Terra Yukon Gold isn't too bad either). I love dousing my fries in vinegar as well.

I LOVE salt and vinegar chips. I also love dill pickle chips. Old Dutch when I can get them!

In Canada we also refer to fries as chips - in some circumstances. I wouldn't order "chips" at McDonalds but I would go to a chip truck and get a plate of chips. Oh, I miss chip trucks. They make THE BEST chips ever.

When I worked in Ottawa there were chip trucks everywhere - like espresso carts in Seattle or hot dog carts in Toronto. I remember there was one chip truck near Place de Ville called "Lou Patates" and my coworker said "with a name like Lou Patates you are destined to get into the chip truck business!"
But that was when I ruled the world

Here in Mexico these are virtually nonexistent, in the US you might find them once in a while but most likely on markets that are oriented to international customers, not the "international" section of a regular supermarket, I remember having salt and vinegar pringles in Tahiti...........only place I have seen those, the best ones I've had are ones with a huge UK flag on the front of the bag.......but I don't remember the name of them.

Based on some of the responses, it seems that salt and vinegar chips are a relatively new thing in the US. Is this accurate?

Here in Canada, I've been eating them since I can remember. I know that its uncommon in the US to put vinegar on french fries (or freedom fries if you prefer).

Here you can get little packages of vinegar at McDonalds for your fries, but you need only to drive across the border 50 miles away to get blank stares if you ask for vinegar.

Once in MSP they offered the bottle of white vinegar they used to clean the grill...

 Smile

Although I love them, I have to agree with one other poster that they really irritate the lining of my mouth if I have too many. I thought I was the only one!

I like them a lot. I have not tried the Pringles ones, next on my list.

In 1997 I used to work in Quito, Ecuador. I used to fly back and forth about every 3 weeks. I asked the guys I worked with down there if there was anything I could bring them from the states. Without hesitation, this was the number one thing they all wanted. I would bring back a case every 3 weeks!

This is inaccurate. S and V chips have always been around, although they are more prominent in certain areas of the country...the South for example. Here in Crapchester, Wegmans carries several different bands, from Lays to Kettle Cooked ones, but no friggin Pringles.....Communists.
