Update: Alas, other geniuses have already invented my invention
Potato chips are the topic of a recent post on my favorite Canadian blog, XUP. Here’s a sample:
They’re Lay’s Classic. Shiny yellow, red and white bag. The King of Chips. Every one perfection. No brown rims of leftover peel. No green aliens. No overcooked freaks. Just the right amount of bubbly ones to make them special — a treat. No weird flavours or ripples. No pretense to healthiness.*
She should be writing copy for Frito Lay!
In any case, this post inspired me. I have come up with a million-dollar (Canadian) invention:
That’s right, Poutine**-flavoured potato chips!!!!
* You can tell XUP is Canadian because she uses the British/Canadian spelling of “flavor”, but also calls the fried potato snack “chips”, not “crisps” like a Brit would do.
** Portlanders can find authentic poutine at Potato Champion (SE 12th and Hawthorne).
Did you look this idea up to make sure it hasn’t already been done? Because it’s a very good idea and would probably sell really well. All the goodness of poutine with a fraction of the fat and salt.
really? real poutine in portland? we’ve made it ourselves here (with awesome outcome, actually). i’ll have to take the boyfriend there as a surprise; we haven’t had poutine since our trip to Vancouver last May…
XUP – I googled it later and that poutine-flavoured potato chips have been marketed before . . . not sure if there are any available nowadays though.
devlyn – Yeah, try Potato Champion. The poutine (and fries) are fantastic!
OMFG!!! Poutine in Portland!?!?!
