i went on a trip to bc, i bought myself a bag of lays
dill pickle flavoured potato chips (i broke down after
my third day there because of the big mark messier
signs which said that he "LOVE[s]" them -- and if he
loves them, who am i to argue with him? they MUST be
good) and now i am so so so very sorry that i bought
them because now im addicted and i dont have a source
for them here at home.
though at first i was apprehensive to buy them because
the concept seemed odd (you really mustnt hold it
against me for being an ignorant country bumpkin from
the states), they are really pleasant tasting. not as
acidic as the salt and vinegar variety (i find that
sometimes the s & v ones can be a bit too much), they
still retain that most pleasant zip and bite from the
what am i going to do? i cant think, i cant sleep, i

I too discovered the many flavors of potato chips that were
available in Canada, but not in California where I live... Dill
Pickle was just one of several that I have never seen offered here
or in several other states that I have visited.
I also noticed other products that were available there, but not
here...and contacted the Mfg's ( Kraft for one) and was told that
certain products are not offered in the U.S., and even within the
U.S. certain things are offered only in "designated" geographical

Ontario seems to be the test market for new flavours of potato chips:
Anybody else tried hot dog flavoured chips, roast chicken,(tasted like
they were coated with instant chicken noodle soup), gravy , all-dressed
(a mix of the wierdest flavours imaginable), sour cream and onion?
But the ultimate was Clamato which appeared last month. Canadians love
Clamato juice (which is a mixture of clam and tomato juice) but just
imagine opening a bag of potato chips and getting a whiff of fishy
dehydrated tomato powder. YEEEUU!!! Tossed those ones after one taste
and one sniff.

Absolutely and these are the only chips I've found available without any
salt. I love 'em and I can't find them around here (Minneapolis)
anymore. I'm major ticked off.

In my area we have Snyder's of Hanover, which makes Dill Pickle potato
chips. They also make fabulous (but VERY salty) Grilled Steak & Onion
chips, and Buffalo Wing potato chip, which are like BBQ but hotter. The
other flavors I've seen are BBQ Rib, which are just standard BBQ, and
Sausage Pizza, which were good but didn't taste at all like their
If anyone wanted to order the Dill Pickle Chips or any other Snyders
flavor, they have an 800 number that you can call to order gift packs and
such. Let me know if you want it.

UK crisps run the gamut from smoky bacon flavor to hedgehog flavor.
I think the prawn flavored ones are particularly vile.
Roast beef with mustard and roast chicken are ok.

Hedgehog? Surely you jest. Please tell me you jest.

In Oz we have chicken flavoured chips, which an ex's mother used to say
tasted like chicken plucking water. Goodness knows how she would know

I LOVE these things. I could only get them in Austin. The first time
I bought them, I couldn't believe I was buying them. They do remind
one of steak and onion (we aren't talking Bern's quality, however).

The Sausage was good, too, but it tasted quite unlike any sausage I've

Yes, please post it! I can't find them here. I like their Dill
Pickle Chips, too, except I would have liked a bit less salt.

How about squid, umeboshi, seaweed, wasabi, or shrimp flavored potato
chips? They sell these in Japan!

Greetings, RFC folks! After the recent thread on Dill Pickle and other
exotically-flavored potato chips, a few folks asked me to post the phone
number for Snyder's of Hanover. So here it is:
They have a wide assortment of products, including Dill Pickle, BBQ Rib,
Buffalo Wing, and Grilled Steak and Onion Potato Chips, and Honey Mustard
& Onion and Buttermilk Ranch Sourdough Pretzel bits. The HM&O bits are
positiely addictive (just make sure you give some to your sweetie,
too...they make ya stinky).

i totally agree about the honey mustard and onion pretzel bits -- there is
no comparison! (hahna, you can get them out there in s.f., can't you?
otherwise i would have sent them too...)
and their plain potato chips are the best... much better than utz's

The Honey Mustard and Onion Pretzels ARE addictive. I normally detest
mustard in all disguises but this snack is the exception. One of the
few times my SO has to fight for his share (normally the other way
round). The only drawback is, that it is VERY hard to get here
(Germany), only on special occasions I can find it (amercian food
weeks). So I think about doing them myself.
Does someone has an idea how they make them? I have hard pretzel
recipes but not yet found honey mustard and with my dislike (not to put
it stronger in terms of reaction of my stomach) of mustard I cannot
experiment very much.
