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.
2. Walkers Lamb & Mint Potato Chips
3. Calbee Seaweed & Salt Potato Chips
If you're into Japanese, you can bet that Calbee has chips to your taste.
4. Walkers Roast Chicken Potato Chips
Who doesn't like Roast Chicken?
Feel like a drink about now? Well, here are a few Chip Shots (for you drinking golfers).
5. Chip Shots Margarita & Salt Potato Chips
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.)
8. Tasto Tuna Salad Potato Chips
9. Walkers Prawn Cocktail Potato Chips
Absolute bliss (I have tasted these). Fortunately, for those in the U.S. the Prawn Cocktail Chips are available at Amazon.com.
10. O'Malleys County Mayo Ham
11. Route 11 Dill Pickle Potato Chips
12. Hot Potatoes Spicy Bloody Mary Potato Chips

19. Wise Smokin' Grill Hamburger & Fixins Potato Chips

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.
