Must Tastes: 20 Wild & Weird Potato Chip Flavors
Looking to add flavor to your life? Spicy barbecue, zesty lime, and cheesy parmesan chips are so yesterday. Today's potato chip flavors are more complicated infusions like Smoked Salmon and Cream Cheese 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
4. Walkers Roast Chicken Potato Chips
Who doesn't like Roast Chicken?

From Kettle, this chip is a classic breakfast combination, potato chips now available in maple and bacon.
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.
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 are now at Amazon's grocery.
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
These chips are now available on Amazon with an interesting blend of sour.
Another twist on the classic combination of smoke salmon and cream cheese. But instead of on a nice tasted bagel, you get it on a fried potato chip.

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.
