Must Tastes: 20 Wild & Weird Potato Chip Flavors

Spicy barbecue, zesty lime, and cheesy parmesan are yesterday. Today's potato chip flavors are more complicated infusions like Chargrilled Steak & Onion and Chesapeake Crab.  Some modern chips may even replace lunch for those on the go, like Tuna Fish potato chips.  See if you can find one or two that might satisfy your cravings... or just your curiosity.

Who knows more about making chips than the British?  It may not be a coincidence that some of the most daring chip flavors are made by British companies.  Walkers, for example, is so innovative that it accepts challenges from the public for new flavors.

 

 1.  Walkers Cajun Squirrel Potato Chips

The Cajun Squirrel was a Walkers flavor competition winner and, lo and behold, Walkers went and made them. I've no idea what these taste like, and I'm not sure I'm adventurous enough to even try one.

Feel like a drink about now?  Well, here are a few Chip Shots (for you drinking golfers).

5. Chip Shots Margarita & Salt Potato Chips

From Beer Chips, the company that makes potato chips with beer, comes the Margarita & Salt chips, presumably made with margarita fixings.  You can get these now on Amazon!

6.  Walkers Steak & Onion Potato Chips

(Glad they passed on the Liver & Onion flavor.) A six-pack of the Steak & Onion chips is available in the U.S. from Amazon.com.

7.  Route 11 Chesapeake Crab Potato Chips

Route 11 is in the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia.  And the company named after Route 11 is busy every day making hand-made potato chips in many flavors.  From the land that knows there's nothing better than a Chesapeake Bay crab and the chips will soon be in at Amazon's grocery.  If you would like to try all 11 Route 11 chips, you can purchase a mixed case from Amazon too. (While we wait for these to become available on Amazon, you can try these crab potato chips which are available now.)

Most of the new Walker chip flavors must be ordered from British companies, but many of Walkers chips, or "crisps" like Smokey Bacon Crisps are also sold on Amazon.com. Britishcornershop, which ships internationally, sells several of the British potato chips featured above.

A wide selection of Beer Chips are now available on Amazon. Some other fun sounding flavors include Barbeque Rib Chips and Buffalo Wings.

Walkers

It's good to see Walkers dominating the list. I used to live in the UK and have eaten most of those flavours. In-fact it's odd to see prawn cocktail referred to as special, it's kind of a standard over there. It's bloody good too!
