I dunno, I'll bet they're delicious on a burger.

i can't imagine having a craving for ketchup and fries and opting for ketchup-and-fries-flavored potato chips rather than actual ketchup and fries. they may as well make chocolate-cake-flavored chips.

actually, that's not a bad idea.

The ketchup and fries flavor could be good, sort of like those Tim's Coney Island chips. But burger flavored chips? Nasty.

Posted by keshmeshi | December 15, 2007 1:26 PM

they could make salts like bacon salt to simulate other foods like burgers and fries or fish and chips, and you could put them on celery and such, then you would only get hypertension

This post totally jives with the flora and fauna identification walking tour I went on this morning (pics to come later in the week). ECB, it's good to know we're on the same "green" page. The earth thanks you for your participation.

And Tim's are better for us because.....

Posted by chas Redmond | December 15, 2007 1:58 PM

Tim's are like Dick's we know they are bad but they are good and local, institutions of undeniable power and goodness

Posted by vooodooo84 | December 15, 2007 2:23 PM

Tims are flavored with Pig assholes and pickled dicks.

Erica, if keep eating junk food, your butt is going to get so big that you won't ever be able to attract a man.

They've been doing ketchup flavored chips in Canada forever.

Posted by Jerod | December 15, 2007 2:44 PM

A lot of men love big butts so there is no insult there.
Big Round butts are awesome!

Posted by mj | December 15, 2007 2:49 PM

I just want to know what the hell june bee is talking about

Posted by vooodooo84 | December 15, 2007 3:09 PM

I'm not going to lie, I'll eat any type of chips when I'm drinking beer and playing XBOX. Rock.

Ecce you are going to give a good name to pig anus

Posted by vooodooo84 | December 15, 2007 4:55 PM

@10 - exactly - and i can't wait till the dill pickle chips come here too!

Posted by Will in Seattle | December 15, 2007 5:00 PM

this is my favorite ecce comment ever! give him an award or something.
it's so wtf out there i won't be able to stop from using it in conversations for the rest of the evening.

Posted by omg! | December 15, 2007 5:18 PM

The big deal isn't the flavors--I've had potato crisps from Britain in flavors ranging from roast chicken to prime rib, no big deal--but that these are being branding under the Burger King brand name.

Posted by Boomer in NYC | December 15, 2007 5:30 PM

@15: Mmm. I miss those.

Posted by Orv | December 15, 2007 5:35 PM

and the salt and vinegar chips they have here are a pale imitation of the real thing in Canada, IMHO.

Posted by Will in Seattle | December 15, 2007 5:41 PM

Lays makes a Dill Pickle potato chip and it's available in Oregon so it might already be in Seattle Will

Big Round butts are awesome!"

Thanks to this comment, I am now singing "Baby Got Back" inside my head. I may have to break out the iPod to listen to it.

Those chips look nasty. I guess the ketchup ones might be OK ... I've had these tomato vegetable chip things that aren't bad. But burger flavored? EEEW.

Posted by Jo | December 15, 2007 6:27 PM

@2 YEAH!!

Posted by Amelia | December 15, 2007 6:34 PM

ECB had a very nice boyfriend when I met her last year. I assume they're still together, not that it's any of our fucking business...

That's a beautiful contribution, Matt

Sorry voooodoooo, I've been getting dolled up for movie night tonight. It's at the Section 8 [insert pol. correct term for schizos, a.d.d. wacks, and repressed anarchiats] Housing Center in Crown Hill. We're screening the classic cartoon of Orwell's 'Animal Farm' and a new kind of Cliff's Notes cartoon approach to '1984.'

Yet amidst the showering and nose-hair picking I was able to catch the first 10 minutes of the Famous Feit and Goldy showbusiness. Here's quick thoughts:

--Nix the 'Revolution' theme song. C'mon! Hello?! DEAD WHITE MALE!!! get with the modern Liberal studies program and spin some Tchaikaovskli! or just pull out the trusty skin-flutes for some Hava Nagiela. Yeah, they are indeed some fast talking Jews. But to tell the truth, after a couple of minutes I began to think it was Alvin and another chipmunk, just slightly toned down toward 16rpm. But that revolution/minute terminology is snark old skool. Actually, like with my free ddownloadable sound editor, the pitch of voices can be adjusted without actually effecting the duration. I rarely use the feature, but knowing the way the media likes to fuck with Reality, I'm sure it's potential is more fully utilized in that areana.

But to get back, @12, to your question, june bee was talking about that S.L.U.T. in a way. I didn't hear the wonderful insights that them and Spaghetti probably moaned over the tracks, but during the aforementioned nose-picking, I hummed along to the chorus of age-brackets that actually take The Stranger seriously. It's been a long time, but those of us who were around to identify with that Cobain guy, we tend to agree "Nature is a (the) whore"

Alright, I'm late as it is, but who really cares about the opening credits besides Click and Clack.

I don't eat a chip unless it has at least sixty ingredients.

do they have disodium guanilate? Disodium guanilate makes the chip in my opinion.

Since some of us are watching our weight, can we get burger flavored apples? Mr. Golob? Genetic engineers?
barbecued beefy goodness, now in your produce aisle? Anybody?

Posted by toasterhedgehog | December 15, 2007 9:46 PM

funny, since burger king has by far the worst fries ever.

In the interests of efficiency, shouldn't this topic be consolidated with "This Week on Drugs"?

Posted by NapoleonXIV | December 16, 2007 12:00 AM

"This Week in Not Turned Into Biodiesel."

Posted by Lloyd Clydesdale | December 16, 2007 7:44 AM

Know what? I tried the ketchup flavor. It's really not bad. They did a good job with the snack texture as well - it's almost like cinnamon toast crunch. Try some before hatin'. Burger-flavor scares me though...

Posted by RL | December 16, 2007 3:26 PM

wow. how many more kids are going to get type 2 diabetes from eating this shit? adults who eat crap like this are idiots, but kids generally don't know any better.

Posted by bushbehindbars | December 16, 2007 6:38 PM

yummmm.... can i has pig dick?????

Posted by scout | December 16, 2007 7:36 PM

Jumping into a thread late as usual...

Salt and vinegar potato chips have been a proud Canadian tradition for quite a while. I remember them from when I was a kid in Ontario a looooong time ago. Canadians even will go so far as to put vinegar on their fries. I once completely grossed out an ex-significant other by doing that on a date. I'm sure if I had mentioned my fondness of poutine she would have dumped me right then and there.

As for @3 regarding getting some real fries and ketchup rather than these god-awful things, that may be fine if you happen to live near a Burger King, McD's, Dicks, etc and they are open. But if it is 12:30am and I am watching Letterman or doing some late night Slogging while hammered and wearing my standard sleep attire I would much rather be safe in the knowledge that I need go no further than my kitchen to indulge my cravings should I be so inclined.

Posted by RainMan | December 16, 2007 7:41 PM

Of course you put malt vinegar on your fries - just don't dip em too long.

Posted by Will in Seattle | December 16, 2007 8:29 PM

Will, malt vinegar, like balsamic vinegar, is for yuppies. I'll take the plain old Heinz apple cider variety.

By the way, last summer in Kelowna BC I discovered "Italian" poutine. Instead of the traditional cheese curds and gravy topping the fries this had tomato sauce and melted mozzarella cheese. I thought I'd died and gone to heaven...

Posted by RainMan | December 16, 2007 9:28 PM

I've been told that Ontario once had fruit-flavoured potato chips, like grape and orange. Strange, they didn't last long...

Posted by Irena | December 16, 2007 9:33 PM

The grape and orange chips must have been after I moved to the States--I'm pretty sure I would have remembered those. But Canadians have always done some rather interesting things with food, the cuisine of the Newfies being a good example (Bakeapple? Almost broke a tooth on it). Of course the food is maybe the least Bizarro-World aspect of visiting Newfoundland, and that's not even including kissing a fish during a Screech ritual I participated in once at a pub in St. John's...

Sorry, it's getting a little late--what were we talking about again?
